I’m working non-stop
And trying to hit the gym to get back into my running/exercising routine since I have basically done nothing in the past week. I’ve tricked my body into thinking I’m tapering so of course I have all of these “phantom” muscle aches (does anyone else get those during your taper???). So gym time has also required foam rolling and stretching.
I’ve written about this before, but I’m a creature of habit. I love to travel and try/do new things but I like my routine. My eating, sleeping, exercising routine. So I feel really out of sorts today. I meant to get up at 7am to get in my 16 miler for the week (since I have a 10 miler planned for Saturday), but I was just so….FOGGY. Tired, you know?
My body has felt bloated and tired and I hate that feeling. So I slept in for another hour and a half and woke up feeling mildly better. It’s a beautiful day out today and I was really looking forward to getting in a run in the 50 degree weather this morning. So now I have to run outside in the 75 degree weather, which, if you know me, is not nearly as desirable.
I thought that I’d come back and jump right back into my routine but I feel so tired and find myself–GASP–not wanting to do certain things, like run (and get out of bed in the morning). So my question for the day is…how do you get back into your routine after traveling or being sick?
