went to rugby this weekend to visit friends of gf. did a bit of a ramble yesterday around kenilworth castle but not enough to count as exercise. felt extremely british: wellington boots, walking coat, passing through livestock gates every few hundred meters, umbrella-free in the steady rain and chill. followed by a late pub lunch with mulled cider. good shit.

today

- run 14.5 km in 1:18:20
getting a little chilly. hands were cold enough to take some time to unstiffen after i got back. felt fine.

- extensive tempo/pace practice: run x 2 km; 1 km in [4:00, 3:57, 3:59] w/3:00 light jog rest; run x 1.9 km
didn't feel too great going in but this was okay.

taper is going to happen a bit by accident, which is fine. will run tomorrow and thursday and then going to the netherlands for the weekend. may run may not, it's for gf's mom's bday so she's driving and not sure how much flexibility we'll have. back next week and will run a couple of days but very light with maybe a few short race pace intervals thrown in for practice, then 2+ days full rest.

got a cold on friday. seems to be progressing quickly, hopefully it'll be resolved before the race this weekend.

saturday

- 3k test: run x 2 km; test in 11:52; run x 2.15 km
eh, felt kind of bad tbh. congestion didn't help. still, sub-20 pace and a negative split despite running an out-and-back that finished on a gentle but continuous uphill.

thanks vag and joe. unfortunately i've had a headache for the last four days. it's faded at times and never quite reached migraine strength, but it gets pretty bad. i had to lie down and take a nap on thursday evening, which is very unusual for me. also, it's moved around (right temple for the first three days, then left temple last night and this morning when i woke up, and now both temples). woke up this morning with it switched very on. standing up and walking around is a slow process, no question of being able to run. so no race.

:-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

gf convinced me to go to the A&E/ER about it, so i'll head up there in a bit. i've been headache-prone my whole life, i'm used to getting them, but this is weird.

Damn it sucks. Feel better man. Its ok about the race, i feel your frustration but you'll find plenty of races. As we say in Greece "fist goes health" (meaning everything else is less important ).

doctor diagnosed trapezius-related headache. in other words, my shoulders are jacked up and i'm getting referred pain. prescribed heat patches and an infrared self-massager. i'm super blown because that means it's just a failure of self-care. on the other hand better to know than not know, means treatment is possible.

- run 14.21 km in 1:15:06
headache present in the morning but not as severe as previous several days. went away by noon. heat + self massage + changed my pillow.
