Default Stroke, or...

As I posted yesterday in my workout log, I had an "incident" while working out yesterday.

I was playing around with limited rest cluster sets, a slight, but more taxing variation of my standard training approach, when out of the blue I got a brutal and instantaneous headache. I felt weak, and my left eye felt slightly off/numb.

This happened after my second set of T-bar rows. I've never had an exertion headache before. I had to stop my workout immediate.

It was so bad that at first I thought I was having a stroke. But as I sit here today, I'm sure it was somehow sinus related. I had a brutal sinus headache the previous day, and the day before that I was slightly sick with a sore throat.

I'm now sure it wasn't anything as bad as a stroke, but it sure scared the living crap out of me.
