Day 10 was Cardio Recovery and Day 11 Power and Resistance. Saturday (Day 13) was supposed to be Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs. Due to other prior engagements that morning I was only able to complete Pure Cardio and not at full intensity due to a headache. Day 14 was “Rest” but I ended up tilling my yard for a few hours.
I woke up that Saturday with a splitting headache, the kind that you feel throbbing in the front lobe on both sides of your skull. I had my fiancé do a quick search on headaches during my warm-up (which caused it to really throb). Headaches can be caused by dehydration and it’s recommended to not workout. You should wait until it goes away… oops on my part. I ended up drinking 20 oz of water mixed in with my P90x Recovery and a couple of Ibuprofen right before the warm-up. That took care of the headache in a short time and allowed me to continue with the workout (not as intense as you can by the numbers below) after the initial stretch and a few minutes of Pause.
