I had a different post for today and then I got sick and didn’t write it. Oh well, I guess…
So it’s a completely random, thinking out loud post.
On Monday around 6:30 pm, I felt extremely fatigued and tired. The fatigue came on within 30 minutes and by 7:30, I found myself laying in bed. I slept through the night until 5:30 am on Tuesday. I thought I would sleep away my migraine. However, that wasn’t the case, and I felt worse on Tuesday.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I slept for a total of 30 hours. Today, Thursday, I am feeling better but not great. No I haven’t run, and I’m okay with that…I’ve pretty much sat on my bed or slept for the last two days.
For obvious reasons, this week I haven’t been running at all, and I’m okay with it. I planned to take a short break this summer, and it happened to be sooner versus later. There is no shame in that.
Speaking of running, what are my plans this Summer and Fall?
I’m currently tossing around different ideas of half marathons in the Fall. I had thought about committing to a full marathon this fall, but I’m not entirely sure I want too. I’m happy where I currently am and don’t have any complaints. Half marathons seem to be my “sweet spot” right now. I have plenty of years to try a marathon again…if I even want too…
This summer, I’ll be running local races. The only major race I’ll be doing is the Boilermaker 15k in Utica on July 10th. Knock on wood of course, because everytime I sign up for the Boilermaker I get injured. There are a lot of local 5-10ks around here this summer so I’ll be running those. Do I think the hot and humid summer will bring PRs? No, probably not but I’ll enjoy getting out there and racing.
So what else have I been up too in the last two weeks?
As most people have figured out, my Instagram and Twitter have been more of my daily life updates. Blogging about life is pretty boring for the most part…go for a run…go to work…go to a diner…something along the lines. One line social media posts are a bit easier for that.
I went to a wedding last weekend down in Maryland. Despite the rain, the Bride and Groom had a beautiful day. I didn’t let the rain affect my attitude either.
