ice cream headache

without the joy and satisfaction of ben & jerry.

Normally speed work is indoors at the university track on a Tuesday night. This week it was outdoors.

When I was packing my bag of running stuff, it was deceiving sunny out, making me think it was warm. So I didn't pack a hat or headband-ear-protector-thingy.

When we started the run it was (-18/-4).

We had a warmup (which made me colder than before), then 3 loops of a 1.5 mile route around the park.

At the end of loop one, my ears were throbbing, so I ran the second loop with my hands on my ears, screaming ".... la la la la can't hear you"

By the end of loop two it felt like an axe was impaled in my forehead.

When I got back to my car I put the heater on full and stuck my head as close to the vent as my lack of flexibility would allow.

The non-ice-cream headache lasted til almost 11pm. My head must be pretty dense to take that long to thaw!

Ow! I have done this before, it's painful. Good job finishing the run.

This is why god invented the gym! and now I am having ice cream for lunch.

In a Homeresque voice.
Aaahhh Cherry Garciaaahh.

Was there something else in this post?

Ouch! Can't believe you completed...you are made of stronger stuff than me!

ouch that sounds horrible! I don't think I would have finished either!

-18! What were you thinking? +5 is cold! Must be awkward running fast with your hands over your ears.

Sounds like a headache out of "My Bloody Valentine in 3D".

You are my hero. -18 is a temperature I only expect from our freezer. BUUUURRRR!!!

-18 with no hat? Ouch for sure! The sun can be so deceptive sometimes!
