On an unrelated note, recently while lifting weights, I experience a shooting pain in my head, like a throbing pain. It subsided soon after and I continued exercising with lesser intensity. I took a day off, and returned to the gym on the 3rd day to experience the same again (while doing my heaviest deadlift) and this time it persisted much longer…till almost 12 hours. I searched online and read about “exertion headache”, and that it’s kinda common. But my question is, do you think I should continue exercising or take a long break (1 or 2 weeks) ?
That’s it for this week, but I still have plenty of blunt, honest advice bottled up inside. Tell me, what’s troubling you? Is work getting you down? Are you having problems with a friend or a coworker? Is your love life going through a rough patch? Do you just feel lost in life, like you have no direction? Tell me, and maybe I can help. I probably won’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but sometimes what you need is some tough love. Ask away in the comments below, or email me at the address you see at the bottom of the page ( please include “ADVICE” in the subject line ). Or tweet at me with #ToughLove ! ‘Til next time, figure things out for yourself.
