Tired....

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I am tired today -and finding the motivation to do anything not really there - so Iam just pushing through right now. I am going to get my little man on the bus and then get changed and go for my scheduled run. It's on the calendar it has to be done....or does it? I have today as a maybe day.....depending on how I feel after my long run. I scheduled Thursdays as a questionable run day - so I don't over do it. I know I feel OK.....physically....but I am tired....so do I or don't I.....

I say "DO" because I know tomorrow is going to be crazy - it's a half day for the kids and I have to be ready to go by 9:30 with my Mom for an appointment.....so DO today what might not be possible tomorrow...and if I can get it in tomorrow I am better off because I know Saturday is hard.....

I think part of my problem may be psychological....yesterday we had a reverse 911 call that told us that our drinking water tested positive for trace amounts of e-coli bacteria on Monday.....well - my tummy had been off since Tuesday...and I did my long run on Tuesday - and drank a TON more than a gallon of water throughout the day - so....trace amounts in a gallon of water....what do you think??????

I told you - psycholocial....but never the less....it's in my brain. I am happy that we had some water left from hurrican prep last month ---- 2 cases...because that's what I am drinking.....

Yesterday was a bad food day too - I was starving and ate all of the wrong things. It was the first day in a very long time that I was out of range. At least when I am out of range I blow the doors off of it.....today is a new day!

The scale didn't budge again - but seriously - after yesteray - I didn't expect it....it will take a few days to balance itself out...I hope....

    Oh man, that sucks about your water!! I hope they get it taken care of soon and you don't get any "sicker".

    As for your run... what did you do??? I bet you ran! You seem like a tough cookie to keep down and the run might have helped perk you up.

    I have a hair appt tonight and I know I won't get done til late - BUT, I'm going to wear my workout clothes and stop at the fitness center afterwards. I gotta do Day 2 of Week 1 emoticon How else will I ever grow up to be like Robyn?

    If you do run today, then don't tomorrow. If you are tired it would be best to rest.
    Good idea drinking the safe water.

    We all have days like that. Getting out for a run may just give you the energy you need. Let us know what you decided about the run. Bottled water sounds like the way to go until you get the all clear on the tap water.

    ewwwww,....... not good about your drinking water. I would probably be doing the same thing and drinking bottled.

    Hang in there! It will get better....

    Ok, maybe I'm not well educated but I didn't know the water could have e-coli. Ugh! That's a tough call. I guess you could go for a bit and see how you feel. I wouldn't over do it for a bit until you see how this plays out. Hopefully, it was a small enough trace that your body just flushed it out. I hope so anyway.

    Hang in there. Keep us posted.
