Today my energy level has totally tanked. I am not sure what's going on but I just want to go somewhere and sleep and sleep and sleep.
I know that over the past couple of days I have put in some hours training and running around and just doing different things but in the grand scheme of things, it hasn't been much more than I would normally do. I am not sure what the deal is.
Am I getting sick?
Is it just old age?
I don't know but I seriously have to kick this. This morning I went to the pool. Everything felt normal. I was actually out of the house relatively quickly. I made it to the pool by 6:15. I only had to wait a minute for a lane. Nothing major. Today was the second straight day of speed work. Ha, imagine me talking about speed work in the pool. Well after my warm up, I was spent. I had zero energy left. I was bankrupt. but I had to get my workout in, so I soldiered through it. I wouldn't want to compare my time with a snail but it was all completed. Every lap and the cool down.
I left the pool and wanted to head home and find my pillow. Well we all know that that will not happen.
At lunch today, I had an 8 mile run. Where have all these 8 miles runs come from. The distance is just so odd. Also and probably more importantly it is really hard to map from the office. I finally figured out a course (remember my energy level is still low). I take off for the run and tell myself to just get it in. Remember you are building. That is my new mantra. So I get the run down and still zero energy.
Now I struggling through the remainder of the afternoon. And to make things even better, I have a meeting tonight which will probably last until 9 pm. Yeah. Well at least I get to sleep until 6:30 tomorrow morning.
