Hot damn, I finally feel human again.
For 38 hours of the past 48 hours, I was in the fetal position battling a monster of a migraine. Usually when I get migraines, they’re super intense (auras, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, pain out the wazoo) but only last 3-4 hours. I take my prescription and get on with my life and can make it to work in the afternoon.
For some reason, this badboy knocked me out for 38 hours. Antisocial, couldn’t manage to stay at work, nauseous, vomiting, no appetite, blahblahblah. The prescription just didn’t seem to work this time around.
But fortunately I woke up feeling human again today and man, the world just seems like a brighter place! This is what real life feels like?! Hallelujah!
I celebrated by hitting the track for mile repeats. 6:33-6:53 pace. Badabing, badaboom.
Embarrassing story: two miles in, I was so hot I decided to ditch my baggy shirt (cotton was a bad choice), and run the rest of the workout in my sports bra. Of course, 1 lap later, an entire high school P.E. class came out to the track. I know it’s totally normal for women to run in sports bras in the hot summer months, but I was still self conscious. Good thing we only had 3 more laps to go.
Do you get migraines? What tricks work best for getting rid of them for you?
Ladies: are you a summer-sports-bra runner?
Tell me one embarrassing story that’s happened to you in the past week!
