Ever since the Steeplechase 8K I ran on Saturday, I've been exhausted. Tuesday I went out to run my scheduled 4.5 miles and felt like I was trying to run through molasses. Every muscle in my body felt heavy and tired. Yesterday, after Body Pump, I barely made it home without falling asleep behind the wheel. I walked in, fell over on the bed and took about a 2 hour "nap" (is it still called a "nap" if it's before noon?). Usually I'm pretty energized after a work out, but not this week. I woke up this morning yawning. I think I've been eating and hydrating about the same as I always have. I think I've been getting a decent amount of sleep (especially yesterday's nap!)...I just can't seem to get moving.
I decided the "listen to your body" advice sounded good, so I opted not to run this morning, but to come come after taking my daughter to school for another morning nap. I'll run tonight. I will. I promise.
(Before anyone asks...yes, I had blood work done earlier this week-if there's a medical issue, it should turn up. Until I get results, I'm going to assume everything's okay and keep plugging along.)
Thanks for stopping in, come again soon.
