Today was my first day back in gym after a week off. I still have a cough but figured it wouldn’t hurt anything to get back out there and start again. I was doing ok, but after my 3rd round of running my ears felt like they were closing off (sounds got muffled) and I felt pressure building in my head. After that I had a massive headache. So, I’m wondering why…was it just because I’m still somewhat congested or is it a sign of high blood pressure? I’ve tested my blood pressure several times before and it’s always been in a good range, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t increasing when I exercise. I decided to walk the rest of the workout. I didn’t want to risk passing out while at the gym…not a good idea!
On a good note, I got 1.7 miles in which means I’m still in 1st place right now for my Nike+ challenge! Even after a week off…guess it’s a good thing my cousins took a week off too!
OH…and I’ve changed my official weigh in day to Wednesdays. I tend to eat a lot of salt on the weekends, so this will give me a chance to flush that out of my system.
