I am not sure if I’m coming down with something or not but my body feels like the onset of the flu. My head is not in a bubble but I definitely don’t have the usual dose of energy that I am accustomed to. I felt kind of MEH last night as well. Morning ride on my stationary bike seemed fine. I worked harder than I thought I would but in the evening I just was not motivated. I did manage to get in a round 2 workout but it was lacking effort for sure. I managed 16 minutes of the bike at an easy effort and did some abs for 45 minutes beyond that. Done is done I always say. Today however I am struggling to find my go get em attitude. I passed on my morning run because it was 18 degrees out and well, you know how I feel about anything under 20! I packed a bag to run at lunch but scrapped that at the first sign of an excuse. So here I sit trying to convince myself to go for a 3 mile run after work when I really don’t want to. I’m on day 24 without a “rest day” and maybe that’s why I feel tired and run down. So there in lies the struggle for me right now, make myself go for a half assed run after work or take a day off. It isn’t like a day off isn’t warranted or like it would throw me back having to make up weeks of working hard. In fact, a rest day would most likely do me good, however, I feel so damn guilty about not doing something. I shouldn’t but I do. I should take the advice I would give anyone else on the planet…rest because your body most likely is telling you it needs a damn day off! I’m still going to make an effort to put in 3 miles outside when I get home because let’s face it:
- My 4/9 race won’t be on the treadmill
- I may not feel good on race day but the race will still take place
- I just signed up for Fabletics because they have cute stuff that I want to fit into
- I am determined
I think I’m done whining now. Thanks for listening!
