Recovery from the long Weekend

Long weekends are supposed to be relaxing, but honestly, I feel completely run down today and I am dreading everything that I have lined up for this week. Maybe things are going to fall back into place and if not, I will have to cut some corners and maybe skip a workout in exchange for more sleep. We'll see.... But I'll definitely keep the blogging at a minimal right now... Something's gotta give - right?

This is the text I wrote my "biker wife"* this morning:
"I feel as exhausted today as I felt a day after Mitchell and I am pretty sore too! WTH! Still got in my swim in the AM, surprised I didn't drown, because I can barely keep my eyes open..."
*explanation to follow, whenever I write the ride report for the Fabulous 4th Bike Tour that I did yesterday

Thinking about it, I really don't know if my body feels so crappy because of the ride yesterday or if I am just completely food hung-over. After weeks of eating very healthy and clean, I think all the sodium that I consumed in the last 72 hours makes me retain fluids and stuff... I feel like I could pop any second.


  1. Hang in there. Get some rest and you'll bounce back.

  2. i think long weekends and vacations tire us out more because we think "oh, i can cram so much more workouts in". hope you're feeling more rested!
