Failed 15 min workout’s. ((Like this morning.)) I was their bright and early begging to be let in, and the workout was a suck-y 15 mins. Hate that.
Constant full-ness from so much granola/cereal/food-in-general as I try to eat more and mentally not freak out.
Exams, presentations, projects, finals, all piling up and the voice in my head trying to remind me that school is much more important than worrying about workouts.
Run’s that last 1 min ((Yes, really. My GPS watch is very confused)).
**Nothing has seemed to be going my way for the last week. I had a great Half Marathon two weekends ago… I had a great long run this past Saturday and felt untouchable… but since then all I have done is Slept and Ate. I have attempted runs, and turned around after feeling like my breathing was out of control and legs were bricks. Even on the Bike and Elliptical I have only managed 15 mins at a time.**
**I have an exam today, and presentation tomorrow, a final Statistics project due Monday, and finals. I know I have not spent enough time preparing/studying. And I hate myself for it.**
Basically this whole week has created this awful feeling of inadequacy and failure. I know, I am not a failure. Everyone has good/bad days of exercising. I just can usually push through it. But at the same time, if I am trying to put on weight and get my hormones back in balance, it is probably a good thing to take days off. But it is just so hard for me to be eating as much as I am now and not be working out.
This is something I need to mentally figure out! I gotta be ok with this! More to life than workouts and runs! I have to keep focusing on the Big Picture and the Long Run.
Sorry for the downer post! More positivity next time : )
