I’ve just had a weird fuckin’ day.
It actually started yesterday. I had done yoga earlier in the day. I wanted to give my body a rest since I had done a combination of running/spinning for the four days prior.
My friend called me because she had to go to the ER, so I was on the phone with her. I felt tired, so I laid down in bed. I guess I was tired, since I slept for two hours. Hard. You know how you take a nap sometimes and you wake up groggier than when you laid down? This was that type of nap. I needed a nap from that nap.
But I didn’t go back to bed. I stayed up, because I screwed up my sleep pattern. I still felt groggy when I went to bed for the night, and slept hard again. But when I got up this morning, I still felt not so great. I didn’t feel sick, I just felt fatigued. But I knew I had to run today because I have a race on Saturday. I did 5 miles on Sunday, and today was a 4 mile run (it’s a 10K on Saturday).
I felt like crap the entire run. It was a combo of the running/spinning (my legs especially felt fatigued), the nap from yesterday (I had an awareness in my eyes, not exactly a headache but it’s something I get when I sleep too much), and I think the detox.
I’m not eating simple carbs, and I use them for energy especially when I run. While my splits weren’t drastic, I felt no spark at the end of my run like I normally do.
My bad idea here is this 10K on Saturday. I have no idea how I can carb up and give myself energy before the race and not starve myself of oxygen and energy. But now I have the shakes and it’s fatigue city. I also had a bad time running. All in all, a crappy day.
