Hello my Lovelies and Gents,
Well it has finally happened...my body is breaking down. I have been running on empty for too long. Today I walked in to work and immediately my nose got stuffy. Ms. Tracey and I went to the mall at lunch to walk and I could breathe just fine. And then I came back to the office and spent the afternoon wishing I could just stick a tissue up my nose. BAH!
Today was a planned day of rest and it would have become one anyway. My body is so stinkin tired. I need to get some running in, but I will be no good to anyone if I fall off the treadmill. My legs hurt. My back hurts. My shoulders hurt. I'm a sore pup. I need a nap! I'm sore and my brain can't seem to slow down.
So let's take a peek inside my brain for a little bit. It ain't pretty. I have lists galore going on in there. Usually working out is good for me, but the last few weeks my mind has been way too occupied. First it was: what do I still need to pack? Now it's: what do I need to unpack next?
So I have OCD, but I also have ADD. This is pretty much how my brain is thinking. It's extremely distracting right now-
Okay, I need to get in at least 5 miles tonight. There are only a few weeks left til the Half Marathon.
Where are my other towels?
When was my last 8 mile run?
I can put that other George Foreman grill in the pile for the yard sale.
My shoulders are still sore so I shouldn't do an upper body workout tonight.
Okay so tonight I want to move those boxes and suitcases down into the basement.
How many more days can I get a long run in before the race?
I really need to do my nails, but it's pointless until I'm done unpacking.
What am I going to do for dinner? I could stop for a turkey hoagie or I could make the whole wheat pasta I have at the house.
If I walk at lunch tomorrow I can skip the gym.
Where is the box with my candles?
If I walk at lunch and hit the treadmill I can make it a 7 or 8 mile day.
When can I start studying again?
Oh I could stop and pick up some clearance Halloween candy.
I could go back to the old gym and see if Gym Crush 1 is there. I could use the butt machine as my reason to go.
I really need to go to bed early.
I should go to the park for a 10 mile run saturday. It's my last day for a 10 miler before the race.
Hmmm I wonder what pies were are having on Thanksgiving.
What if I am not better tomorrow? Will I be able to go the gym?
If I only had soup for dinner am I allowed some chocolate too?
Maybe I can dedicate one night a week to a yoga dvd.
How much water have I had today?
How am I going to pay for the certification exam?
When was my last blog post?
Crap I still need to follow up with my "unofficial clients" and work on their new workout plans.
I miss Gym Crush 1.
Why hasn't Tony Stewart called yet???
