Double time

Date: 2/3/21
Training Day: 12
Miles: 2
Time: 22 min
Shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21
Weather: N/A (indoors on a treadmill)
Strength Training: Legs

How It Felt: The run wasn’t bad. Typical two miles on a treadmill. The leg workout nearly killed me though. I don’t know if my legs were tired from the intervals yesterday, because I was tired or what, but I struggled. And I was miserable through most of the workout, which is weird because leg day is my favorite workout day.

Commentary: I did not sleep well last night. I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t fall back asleep for almost an hour. My mind was spinning about all the things I needed to do and how little time I have to do it. And I woke up early to get my run in before work.

The reality of double workouts is starting to hit me. On workdays I will probably feel rushed and have little free time. Last night I got home, showered, made dinner, ate and got ready for bed, and the whole time I felt rushed to get to bed. This morning I also felt rushed to get out of the house and get to the gym. At the gym I felt rushed to get my run done, changed, and out the door.

However, there were quite a few things I could have done to make this week less stressful. On Sunday I could have done meal prep. I didn’t. Monday is a complete rest day, so I could have meal prepped. I didn’t. As a result, I didn’t get to unwind last night before bed.

The solution to this problem is to stop fucking around. I am a master procrastinator. But if I want a daily balance in my life, I can’t procrastinate. At least not as much. I need to be more efficient with my time.
