What a Monday! I mentioned I was feeling rundown yesterday and I had eaten bad so I expected to feel bad later too but I never expected sleeping for 11 hours!
First, I was starving for dinner by 2PM. All that bread I had eaten just went right through me like empty calories. I finally caved and ate dinner around 3:30 (after snacks weren’t doing anything for me).
Then, after a quick phone call with Rob that I barely remember, I fell asleep on the couch around 6:30. At 7:30 I remember moving to my bedroom. Around 11:30, I woke up and turned off the lights and got properly ready for bed. I woke up once or twice during the night but finally got up at around 6 today! I still felt beat this morning (side effect of all that bad eating) but I got ready for my run anyway (since I obviously didn’t do it last night). My run was pretty uneventful and shorter than I wanted (3.6 miles, not the 6-8 I wanted). My legs just felt like bricks from dehydration and my mind was all sorts of foggy.
So back to operation July Restart! I did run today right? Woohoo! My schedule/plan for the rest of the week:
Tuesday: Run (check!), ST?
Wednesday: Run (3-5 miles), ST?
Thursday: Run (3 miles), Yoga or ST?
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Long Run (9 miles is on the schedule)
Sunday: Insanity? ST? Something hard and intense!
I’m also cutting out all grains and dairy again. It is so easy to forget what eating them does to me. My lunch today has feta in it (I didn’t realize the sausage I made was spinach & feta flavored, oops) but hopefully its not too much that it won’t bother me. On a side note, Charissa at Colourful Palate is doing a smoothie challenge for the month of July. I completely forgot about it (since I was barely online last week). I like seeing all the submissions to her challenge and the ones she comes up with. I’d like to make a few more for it too, but I really have nothing at home that I could use. I really wanted to use up everything I have at home before making a grocery story trip though. We’ll see!
That’s it for today! I’m already feeling more alert but still not 100%. Just have to keep working at it! Happy Tuesday!
