Training Day: 77
Time: 90 min (treadmill)
Shoes: Xero HFS
Activity: Strength – Strength Capacity
How It Felt: The run itself felt good considering I’m on the verge of being under the weather. But damn was it a slow run! Why am I so fucking slow on the treadmill? When will it fucking warm up so I can run outside?!
The strength workout was good, and it was my last one for this block! Up next are power workouts! Whatever that means. I also swapped out the horrible planks with leg lifts for a different exercise, so I enjoyed this workout much better than the rest.
Commentary: I woke up feeling pretty good because I got a good night’s sleep. Then I walked upstairs to the kitchen and stared at the mess in the sink and on the counters. Not a dish has been washed since I cleaned the kitchen last weekend. A cutting board with tomato pieces also sat on the counter. Suddenly, I was fucking grumpy.
After that it took me two hours to motivate myself to get on the treadmill. Partly because I was grumpy. Partly because I was feeling mildly depressed. There’s so much I need to get done, and stuff I’ve been wanting to get done for weeks now, but all I want to do is take a day off and do whatever I want by myself. And my lack of motivation was also partly due to the fact that I had to run 90 minutes on the treadmill. Perhaps that falls under grumpiness?
After my run I didn’t do a damn thing. That’s a lie, I changed the cat box and took out the trash. Look at how productive I was! Tomorrow I’ll probably regret not doing any homework or working on my grad school application statements, but it’s too late now.
Endlessly seeking adventure.
