Clear My Head


I just figured out the source of my headaches.  The computer screen!  I was at a committee meeting earlier today and then returned to the office to finish out the day.  After sitting a few hours in front of the computer with intense focus, my headache from two days earlier began to creep back.  Yesterday I took the day off and while I was at the computer for a few hours it was not the same kinds of long bouts of sitting that I normally do throughout a work day.  So I’m thinking that I need to get up more often throughout the day, take a walk around the block, down the hall or hike a few flights of stairs in the stairwell.  Something, anything that gets my blood moving and my brain clear again.

Tonight I plan to hit the gym.  I won’t be running outside because we got dumped with a huge snowstorm last night and my neighborhood is sure to be pure slush or ice tonight.   But a good run will do me good.  Next week the plan is to get back into my morning workout routines because I’ve noticed that there are no headaches or other feelings of low energy during the entire day when I do so.  Yes, it’s true–working out makes me feel better.  Rocket science…I don’t think so.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
