20- Zombie

After last week, I was feeling much more enthusiastic and ready to run. I was getting back on track, yes.

Monday wasn’t too crazy at work and I was looking forward to my post work run. I started to feel a little weird but chalked to up to eating less than normal that day. Changed and headed to my running spot. 1/4 mile in, I almost passed out. There was a bench a little further and I sat there for 10+ minutes trying to figure it out. I threw in the towel and turned around. Just under 3/4 of a mile and then I went home and napped. At 6 in the afternoon.

Tuesday through Thursday was more of the same. I know that high stress periods can get me rundown which if I ignore turns into full blown sick. Not only do I now have time for that, this is also not the best time to be sick. I napped a lot those evenings after work. Hell, I napped a lot last week.

Fridays have been interesting since the lockdown. Technically our hours are shorter but we also don’t start wrapping up until the last customer is done. Which is fine but it’s hard to get a handle on Fridays.

I had planned on running on Saturday but another nap won out. Oops. I did enjoy lunch in the park though before that.

The plan was to sleep in on Sunday and then go for an afternoon run. The first part of that happened… but then I picked up a book. And decided to read the whole thing. Oops. So, I guess I worked out my brain?

So yeah, that was a lackluster week in so many ways. However, I figure I needed it as a big change is coming soon and I need to be firing on an all cylinders. Combine that with the current states of affairs and I may need to reassess my running goals for this year.

How was your week?
