Ugh! Spinal Headache!

Today was most entirely not as nice as yesterday. I woke up with a bad headache.  It was a bit later than my normal wake up time, so I assumed it was a lack of caffeine. I gave myself a nice cup of coffee as well as some breakfast and the headache abated some, kind …

Last (not really) build week.

Well, last build week until the next build week.   Whoa.  I am tired. I slept like a crazy person last night.  Got up and went to the pool.  Swam a bit over a mile.  The pool was pretty great.  It was a nice temperature, and I just felt like I was gliding through the …

Weary Wednesday

Wow.  So I woke up this morning, totally exhausted.  I can always tell when training is wearing on me.  I start getting to the gym later and later and then I have about a total of 8 minutes to shower and go to work.  Today was the latest I have even been, so bordering on …

Sufferin’

Yeah, this is the week of suffer. Monday I swam long and ran 1 mile.  That one mile was incredibly painful. I was so excited too about monday as it is typically massage day.  Noooooo. My massage therapist took ill.  So I had to foam roll. which helped but it is not the same. Had …

impromptu rest.

So it is a rest week. That doesn’t actually mean… It just means my workouts are pretty easy. What’s been funny is that all week things have felt just a touch off.  I figured it was the massive job stress.  Turns out I was getting sick. Last night I noticed that my head was all …

And into every runner’s life…..

Some not really great workouts must occur. Today was apparently a day for that. I was REALLY looking forward to my Saturday workout. Then some things interfered. Friday I had to bathe the dog so he could go to his annual Vet appointment.  He was actually quite dirty based on the bath water. Remember, my …

Transition tuesday

Transition Tuesday went pretty well. I admit that I woke up feeling still very tired and kind of drained. I took my pulse as I was sure it would be some crazy number like 80.  But no, it was 54.  So, without the pulse being up I had no good excuse to skip the workout. …

Sleepy Saturday

So, I believe now that the long workout on Saturday is responsible for most of my feelings of exhaustion. I woke up late today and still felt like I had taken a huge ride on the pain train… Which is I suppose what I have done.  My low back and shoulders were especially tight.  THis …

Freaky Friday

Friday was truly kind of freaky.  I decided to sleep in and not swim in the morning.  Doing this of course put me at risk for Florida lived up to it’s reputation and I was not even able to make it to the gym without becoming very very wet:   So…I decided to just do …
