Post Migraine W9R1 🤕

Well I went out and did it! My first 30 minutes done 👍 I never thought when I started W25K I could do it, I thought things like that were for other people not lazy bods like me. Running the day after a migraine is not something I would recommend and I probably won't do it again but I was feeling very low and in need of some endorphins. The stabbing pain in my head about half way through sucked but tripping over my own feet and in to a patch of stinging nettles certainly took my mind off it. Onwards to W9R2 on Wednesday.......

Ouch!! You are most definitely committed to running. I don't think I could have done a run after a migraine. I hope you felt better afterwards. I've just done my w9r1. I felt it a bit of a struggle today if I'm honest - lots of reasons. Good luck with w9r2.

Aww, that's most unfortunate. Wednesday's run will obviously be less grueling, and then you're onto the graduation run :)

30 minutes is fantastic, well done and when you're not your best as well. Sorry to hear about nettles, once fell in some as a child- scarred me (mentally not physically) can't abide them!

Believe it or not my leg is still stinging 6 hours later! I think I will give them a wide berth next time, unfortunately there are brambles on the other side of the path. Maybe some protective equipment may be in order? Do they do adult sized hamster balls?

It's surprising how painful those pesky nettle stings are as an adult. :)
