Alarm Clock 1 / Crystal 0

Well, as you can probably tell from the title, I did not jump out of bed this morning, hop into my running gear and head out the door with a big freaking smile on my face. Nope, instead I woke up 10 minutes before the alarm, pondered how cool it was that I got up even before my alarm went off, and then reset the damn thing for 6am. Cuz that, peeps, is how I roll.

In my somewhat meager defense, I have been in a constant, daily battle with some wicked headaches for the last week. They consume my whole head and neck and refuse to go away even with my attempts with ibuprofen, aspirin (which I can't even stomach) and a large quantity of Tylenol. So, after dealing with this for a week now and getting more annoyed by the day, I finally broke down and got a dr appt for Sat. Hopefully they can do something or I'm heading to a specialist cuz this is really hindering my running progress. I need to up those miles dang nabbit! I also need to get my thyroid rechecked so it can be a two-for-one deal.

So, with no morning run, I am debating going this evening but I may just take the night off and try for that 5am time again tomorrow. Chillin with a good book sounds like a pretty good idea right about now.

Sorry to hear about the headaches! Hope you can get that resolved soon.

Do you think it could be neck strain? When I spend too much time in front of the computer, I get knots in my neck. If I don't get them worked out, I'll start getting headaches. A trip to the massage therapist takes care of it, though.

Sorry to hear about the headaches. There could be a million reasons for them, but I hope the dr is able to narrow it down for you.

As for the early rising, it's tough!

I'm sure a lot of it is neck strain. I do sit in front of the computer for 8-9 hours a day. I feel a lot of tension in my shoulders, too. I've had problems with my neck for several years now and have had headaches since I was 15 so I'm hoping they can figure some way to get rid of them. Massage may definitely help.

Hey Shannon has been having them too. I wonder if something is going around? Let us know what the doctor says.
