Up Allermuir and down the scree. Very enjoyable albeit very slow, feeling headachy but not getting worse during. Max HR was on the scree, kept it below 146 apart from that. The thinking is that staying below z3 should keep things fairly safe and will try to gradually build the volume even if the headache remains the same level.
To/from Hillend, again very slowly.
Came down to the Lakes with Spud. Went for a dip in Bassenthwaite, maybe try and Wim Hof this headache away.

Potentially the best day on the headache front since it started. Went up gutted haddie including the full bottom section which I'd not done before. Pretty toasty in the sun so taking it nice and slow, although HR quite high. Quads getting tired/sore haha.

Feeling meh so just a short one, with 2 x 15s strides at the end cause why not.
Got blood test results back - they seem basically all normal, although was sort of hoping for a mega deficiency in something (big enough to explain things but easy to fix). I asked the nurse at the test if she could add cortisol and testosterone to the list of things to check as they might show something stress/fatigue related but doesn't look like they've been done, ah well. Ferritin 41 μg/L, B12 626 ng/L, RBCs, haemoglobin, haematocrit and WBCs all on the lower end of normal but don't seem too concerning. Iron may well have been lower a month ago since I've been taking supplements for 3 weeks now. Only thing outside the ranges they give was high bilirubin (to do with the liver) but that was only just. Doctor wants to chat though apparently so that's on Thursday. I guess the chance of Lyme is slightly higher now but won't get that result for a few more days.
Exam 3/4 done, honestly was probably the best part of the day as it was 3 hours of feeling focussed, alert and productive. Pretty bored the rest of the time. Was half planning on running but feeling headachy post exam.
