So so tired today.
I stayed up late watching the Gabby Douglas story on Lifetime Last night.
To be honest, I will say it wasn’t that worth it. I saw a bit more on Lifetime this morning and that was more candid and interesting. I remember watching her in the 2012 Olympics and really loving her. I learned her whole story then and the Lifetime movie really didn’t embellish any more than that, which in a way was nice..not a really huge “tell-all” for an 18 yr old.
As a result, I had trouble sleeping. Thus I got up a bit late, and everything was a bit off.
My run went well. I had only 6 on the docket today. At about mile 4 I started to feel really TIRED. My IT band on my left which never disturbs me, made itself known for a bit there until I adjusted my form. I finished off the run and hit the gym for 30 minutes of slow stationary cycling. This is when tired really hit me. My quads hurt. I wanted to lay my head down on the bike and shut my eyes while I cycled. After the cycle, I declined the foam roller and just went home.
You would think I’d have no problem looking like this guy. Yeah. about that. I’m tired, but find it very very hard to sleep during the day. SO…Ugh. I am instead studying for my certification exam, fooling about writing blog posts, and wishing I looked more like the guy above…
