Yesterday I had a headache so bad, it made me late for work. And it only sorta went away; it was that lovely background pain, the kind that is just lurking around waiting for your meds to wear off so it can turn around and punch you in the face. BOO.
The sad part is, I’m getting used to that. I just pop pills and keep going, because even if I wallow in my headache, it won’t go away so I figure why bother? This, of course, doesn’t always work. I fake the perky and then later when I don’t want to anymore, people are like, “What’s wrong, you were fine five minutes ago?”
I even did my C25k run last night – 25 minutes no stopping. I actually think I do better when there’s no stopping, I’ve gotten to the point that looking forward to stopping makes it harder to keep going. But when I do a long stretch, I can stop on my own for like 30 seconds and I feel a little more in control. Does that make sense? It’s like, instead of listening to the running app, I’m listening to my body. Well, mostly. I listen when it says, “HEEEYYYY! Slow the f*ck down, I wanna walk.” And, amazingly, I feel like it tells me when I’m ready to run again.
It used to be that when I had my walking portion, my body was like, “Ooo, this walking thing is nice. Let’s walk all the time. We should only walk from now on. What, we’re running again? But I like the walking thing…NO! I don’t wanna!!! You know what, I’m gonna cramp up, see how you like THAT. Heifer.”
Now it’s like, “Okay, that was nice, thanks. We have 10 more minutes of running. Let’s do this sh*t.”
Yeah, it’s weird for me too. Jiggly, lazy plus-size girl likes to run. Strange.
Anywho, that’s a long-winded way of me saying “No proper blogpost. Head hurty.” BUT, halfway through this I started thinking about #ff on Twitter, which I JUST learned like last week means “Follow Friday.” (Hush. I know….) So let’s do our own version of Follow Friday. Leave a comment about some blogs that you just love, even if they’re huge and popular. (Don’t suggest Jezebel. I have issues with Jezebel; it’s the mean, over-sensitve friend that you can’t stop hanging out with.) Let’s make some new blog friends. Because making friends is fun!
So’s counting to 4.
