…it’s been one of those days…
Seriously…we didn’t even get fall. It was from 90 to ‘I hate your life’ outside. Today didn’t even crack 50, that’s the second day in a row! Regardless, after a long and stressful day at work, I did go running today.
~2.5 miles in 24 minutes…
I have no idea what to make of that time. I by no means was going 100%, my ankle does feel about 90% at the moment. Trying to rest it up, I fear it’ll be sore tomorrow morning. However, I do not regret running. It was a nice change, and it did warm up while I was out there. I did throw in some ab work at the end of it; and threw down a glass of milk.
Baby steps…some days we take a few steps back before we can move forward.
Allow me to inform you about my day [because I know you’re dying to know…]:
Got up stupidly early for work. Did my 100 miles worth of driving, three Subway stores, I did eat breakfast [wheat bagel with cream cheese] and had a cup of coffee [Guatemala Antigua blend] and headed to work.
The weather was absolutely lousy today. We did not even get above 50 degrees. It was cloudy for a good chunk of the day, and poured down rain the later half; lightening, thunder, and all [really weird]. After I finished my third store, I headed out into the freezing rain to my house. When I got to the house I placed my things in my room, walked into the living room, sat down and then it hit me…
I’m completely exhausted.
It’s freezing cold outside.
There’s lightening everywhere.
This is not running weather.
Now, some of you reading this enjoy placing posts that talk about not making excuses, running through anything, but allow me to give you two reasons behind my choosing not to run:
- I’m not a fan of being struck by lightening, my town is a on a hill, and I run on hills [higher chance of being struck]
- I cannot afford to get sick, not with this job I don’t have the time
Now, you can go ahead and rant and rave about my lack of spine, but I just couldn’t justify. On top of that, I can’t figure out the complete exhaustion.
Furthermore, I actually ate lunch today. That’s usually a rarity, but my stomach was hurting, my head was on fire, and I seriously needed some foot.
Footlong Chicken Crisp on Honey Oat
Pickles on 6”
Two stripes of ranch
One stripe of honey mustard
I ate all of it. It was delicious, but when I got home I just felt guilt, and more guilt. When I arrived home, I sat down and fell asleep for two hours. I woke up, it was dark outside, and I had a bowl of cereal, a glass of milk, and a cup of hot chai tea.
I’m so confused on what I should do about working out. Do I need to get a gym pass in the town 13 miles north of here?
I don’t know what to do. My weight hasn’t increased, but the guilt is becoming overwhelming.
I stayed off my ankle most of last week. I did play my soccer game on Friday night. Most went well, I do have some fun bruises from that game; and my ankle was still a little swollen on Saturday. I’m giving it another day of rest today; and I think…I think…we’ll be ready to get back at it tomorrow afternoon.
Here’s a speedy recovery.
You really have to keep an ion them.
I had a ‘night terror’ a few nights ago. Just a gnarly nightmare really. However, when I woke up I had this terrible fear in my head. I have been taking it super easy on my ankle as of late, which has limited my running; just trying to heal the thing. I was terrified that I was gaining weight, I mean straight up terrified. So scared that I got up, went into the bathroom, grabbed the digital scale and weighed myself. Naturally, my weight hasn’t changed at all.
I just found this rather…alarming and was very unsettling.
