So I woke up this morning (obviously) and I was feeling pretty tired and sore all the way from my mid back down, but I figured that’s a good thing, right? Although I don’t think that any human being should feel this awful just from walking in circles I know that it’s got to be done…or does it? Yes…or no? (This could go on forever). With all my tired and soreness I still have more energy in different ways that I can’t really explain…I guess alertness is the word. The foggy brain seems to have gone away a little bit, but not from the exercise because it was on its way out last week and I just didn’t say anything. My body still feels awful (apparently I want both things to function properly…blah blah blah)
I wrote a blog post this morning where I promised that I would go to the track 21 days in a row (what the crap is wrong with me? Why do I hate me so much?). I immediately regretted it but it’s out there so I went again tonight even though I felt like some sort of sickness was coming over me (are you happy, brain?) I again walked a 21 minute mile (4 laps) which really sucks because I felt like I was pushing myself harder and getting more out of breath than the first 2 days (according the graph at Nike’s website I started out slower and pushed myself more at the end). I don’t think I could have gone any faster because I was already having a mild asthma attack (I left the inhaler at home because I’m smart that way). I know that I shouldn’t get discouraged or whatever and as long as it’s causing me serious physical pain then it’s working (that seems kind of sick to me).
As far as the diet goes I was so so so so so hungry today. I don’t know how to fix this (Nike said I burned 287 calories and I’m sure I more than made up for that with my crackers). I know that if I let myself get too hungry I will cease to function as a “productive” member of society (some would argue I was never a productive member of anything). I know I’m not supposed to be worrying about fat and calories, just carbs. I probably need to stop buying those crackers…I’ll weigh myself on Monday and see if this walking has helped at all and then reevaluate the situation.
P.S. I’ve been told that I should be taking credit for the “cool down” lap because it is still technically a lap that I actually walked from one place to another with my actual legs. Soooo, I guess I’ve walked 5 laps every day (so far) this week. Yay? This brings me to 3 of 21…ugh
P.P.S. want to hear something corny? Too bad. Why is it called house training when you try to teach a dog not to go in the house but potty training when you try to teach a child to go in the potty? I know I’m dumb. This is what happens when my focus comes back. Sorry
P.P.P.S. Happy Leap Day!!!!! Go out and murder a clown because today it doesn’t count. (that’s two references to hilarious things I saw last week…you figure it out)
P.P.P.P.S. I posted this the day after leap day because I don’t really want any clowns to be murdered (although they kind of deserve it)
P.P.P.P.P.S. I just wanted to see how many of these I can do.
