Greetings from Not-Feeling-So-Great-Ville
Right. I got up today at 4:30 cause I couldn't sleep. Worked for two hours, then headed down to the gym for my @ss-kicking cardio workout. Here's how it went:
- Minutes 0-5 = maybe I should have had some coffee before I got on here...
- 5-11 = um, what? My heart rate is through the roof. Is this treadmill faster than the one at home? WTF?
- 11-16 = Incline 10, speed 3.6 or something like that. I am this close to falling off this treadmill, or maybe laying down on it for a quick nap. I make very compelling arguments to myself as to why I could certainly finish my workout after said nap.
- 16-39 = I feel like absolute @ss. Can't move my legs fast enough. Can't keep up with treadmill. Lower the speed below normal workout. Guzzle water. Still feel awful.
So I ended 10 minutes early and felt awful afterwards, really, really tired. I went back to bed for a few hours, missed day 2 of my class, and took an earlier flight home so I wouldn't have to sit at the airport for forever. I wasn't feeling 100% on Monday, and I'm thinking the crazy schedule, stress and flights just added to it. I'm staying home tomorrow to sleep, sleep, sleep.
PS I had a slice of pesto pizza and some whole grain tortilla chips with guac for dinner. Not the best nutritionally. Oh well.
