    great 15.76 mi 01:10 13.5mph pace

    had a ride out after work, this eased the headache down from a manageable 4 to a fairly easy 2. Even got a few question right after watching University challenge ! ;-)

    woke up at 4am with a fairly bad headache at pain factor 7, I stayed in bed until 7:30, but hadn't slept since 4am and even on 6 hours sleep the headache was making sleeping a virtual not star... read more

      thanks Kevin, if I feel safe riding or doing any activities then I've learnt that this is the best way forward as sleeping it over is far slower !

      Yikes - these headaches must be cured soon I hope. Well done on the trainer.

      cured or managed - depends on your point of view, If they can't cure it then it would be better to know so I can start managing it better.

    guestimated guess on mileage as the deluge (for 15 minutes) stopped the speedo at 14.5 miles

    managed to get an outdoor ride in which wasn't bad for a day of rain and high winds. Fairly tough day anyway, just didn't feel right all day with a headache. The ride did improve the symp... read more

    quick ride under the lights of the town, had lots of layers and glad that I did, but was great to get a ride in at all after all of the rain

    great 13.31 mi 01:01 13.0mph pace

    amazing ride reduced the head and neck pain down to virtually nothing (pain factor 1) from 4. Rode hard to get very sweaty which improved the motion in the neck dramatically

    great 23.95 mi 01:50 13.1mph pace

    return run but with the huge tailwind now (no short cut this time), nice to switch bikes for a totally different feel to it, - hybrid bike to mountain bike. Felt much easier to balance the wider tyres

      yep stupidity.........the quck release lock was set to unlock - I'd turned it the wrong way, the wheel was tight, but lucky boy really. The sad thing is I'd tightened it all up in a slightly impaired state, rode it, it felt fine, checked it again and convinced myself that the wording that way round on the release mechanism must be right. Sadly this is my problem with my brain, it convinces itself something is right and it's wrong or vice versa.

      circulation is perhaps the best answer, so by adding in the extra layers improves this by thinning the blood (?)
