About 25% into my am commute on my bicycle I came down with the worse headache I’ve had in some time. Of course strenuous excercise has a lot to do with making a minor headache worse.
Naturally I had no excedrin/tylenol/whatever and even if I did it wouldn’t work quickly enough to matter. I decided not to throw in the towel but rather to just knuckle down and ride through the pain. Balance seemed ok though thinking and reaction time seemed certainly impacted. I had visions of coasting up to the office building and falling over in the bushes and laying there for half the day. Nevertheless I pressed on.
By the time I reached 2/3 though the headache broke and is still broke except for a very slight background one. I’ve never pushed through a headache before while excercising. Tongue in cheek….. Maybe the blood vessels causing the headache finally burst causing the release in pressure and relief 🙂
