Off Week

I took the week off from running. It then ended up I took the week off from any kind of exercise. Oh well.

I really got into a funk about my blood pressure. I really felt OLD. High blood pressure happens to the OLD people. I am one of the OLD people.

I've been checking my pressure. I bought a blood pressure checking thing and probably day one of owning it, I was checking my bp every five minutes. It ran from 126 to 166. Quite a range.

But overall, my pressure is still high. I average around the 130s and 140s. I think I may have had one or two occasions in which my bp was anywhere in the 120s.

I am about 95% sure that the bp medicine makes my head spin. I had taken them at lunch, at work, two days in a row, only to find that within an hour, my head would spin and those brain shocks would hit me. On day one, I thought I was just having my occasional 'regular' brain zaps. Day two, however, I realized it must be the medicine. They both happened at the same time of day. Those will be taken at night now...

I plan to run this weekend. I hope it goes well. I need something to get me out of this pity-me-mode.
