Lately it feels like I’ve spent at least one of two weekend days feeling depressed. I’m not really sure what triggers it, I have a terrible time trying to get through it, and I’m not really sure how to avoid having it happen. You may have already guessed that today is one of those depression days. Yesterday I felt fine–my half-marathon felt like it had more or less been a success, I was in a good mood, and I had plans for things to get done today; today, I have felt like a slug, everything I have eaten has left me feeling too full and grossed out by myself, and in spite of everything I planned to do yesterday, I haven’t actually done anything. On top of those things, I no longer feel all that great about how my half-marathon went. How’s that for a 180? Depression sucks. Also I’m probably one of the few people on the planet who looks forward to Mondays.
But we’re not here to listen to me carry on about depression, we’re here for the run-down. And far be it from me to deny you what you want.
Tuesday: 5.2 miles
Thursday: 7.4 miles
Saturday: 13.1 miles
It was obviously a pretty low-key week as I wanted to be sure to feel rested for my race on Saturday. I didn’t do nearly as much yoga as I would have liked, though, and maybe it’s just because I’m feeling crummy today, but I wish I had run a little bit more. I’d also like to improve my diet and get some variety into my weekly routine; however, since I’m feeling bad about pretty much everything right now, I want to hold off on making any goals for this week. Doing so seems like it would just be a recipe for disaster, and I’d probably just set myself up to fail. So I’ll hold off on those until later.
