First off, thank you all SO much for all your care and concern on my morning post.

I think I had you all a little more concerned than  you need to be (which just shows me how awesome you all are).  I definitely didn’t wake up sick this morning, just woke up very Sluggish — exhausted, and feeling overall run down.

For all you regular readers, you know I’ve been switching up my work out routine a bit lately and trying a bunch of new strength routines.

I think my body is just still trying to adjust to new work outs, and I myself am still trying to find the correct balance for myself. I’m currently doing 2-3 days of strength, 2-3 days of running, and one total cross training day (with variation of course).

Maybe my body is wanting a little less of something, or a little more?  But either way, the rest my body was asking for this morning was just that. Rest.  Ever since getting very sick after my honeymoon, I am VERY cautious to listen to my body’s cues as I NEVER want to be that ill again.

When my body felt run down this morning, I postponed any activity and rested.  I then woke up, did some light stretches, and went along with my day.  I drank a ton of water, and ate a bit of a higher calorie diet than may be normal for myself.

I spent my lunch stretching and relaxing

and feel like post work I may be able to squeeze in a light work out, leaving tomorrow to be my scheduled rest day.

I am going to begin training for a relay in May, so April is the last month where I really want to be flexible and play around with my work outs.  Considering that, and considering that I DO feel better, I am confident about squeezing in a possible work out.  Keep in mind that if I were actually ill, or if I weren’t feeling better, my butt was going STRAIGHT to the couch this evening.

And quite frankly — I wouldn’t still COMPLETELY  rule out that option, if the hubby talks me into it 🙂

  1. what’s this I hear about a relay?!? I have a very similar weekly routine and also have been enjoying keeping my workouts flexible lately.

  2. This is exactly what happened to me last night. I had planned to go running, but I felt extremely sluggish, like my legs were made of lead. I ended up eating a heavier dinner and resting (well… I did some cleaning, too, but that made me feel better!). After just letting myself be lazy, I was ready to do some strength training and it felt great. So strange. I attribute it to the drastic change in my weekly workouts, too. The body is so wise, and we are wise to listen to it. 🙂
