Mood Swings

Two days worth of Training Stories…I’m going to keep it short and sweet. It goes something like this: yesterday I was frustrated and felt like I wanted to rip someone’s head off from the time I crawled out of bed in the morning and back in at night. Yup, it was one of those days where you lose things easily, bump into everything, can’t remember what you were just doing, and feeling very overwhelmed. Nothing seemed to go right and I just could not focus! I felt like a sloppy mess, physically and emotionally.  Anyway, I pushed myself through my workouts, got everything done I was supposed to do, and just prayed that I’d be in a better mood the next day.

The praying obviously helped as today I woke up with a smile and having 9 hours of non-interrupted sleep was a total bonus. I was happy and had energy. Good thing too as for my run I had 20 x 400m repeats to do. I was curious to see how my body would handle it as I have never done that many at one time. The last 4 repeats I was just counting down big time but I felt so proud of myself when it was over. I completed every single repeat just as strong as the one before and didn’t let up once. I even kept my rest time between intervals to the stated 30 seconds. I felt strong! After my run and a bite to eat, I went over to the pool and had a enjoyable swim. I worked on improving my stroke today, so lots of pulls, and I love pulls. It was a perfect workout to do after my hard run as there was not a big demand on the legs.

So there you have it! Two days, gettin ‘er all done regardless of my mood, and now sitting back feeling pretty satisfied. Here’s hoping for good weather tomorrow…I have a long ride and run to do 🙂
