Mobile Minutes: Blank Space


Let me tell you how last night functioned…

Got off work at 4:45 (stayed late to cover for a teacher). Grabbed dinner to-go from my friends place, and arrived home around 6:30. Finished dinner at 7:00, and fell asleep, while talking to Darco, not waking up until 9:00. Left the couch at 9:00, brushed my teeth, and went directly to bed.

It’s currently 4:30 and I’m wide awake. I’m not complaining because this is precisely how my week has been, just overwhelmingly exhausting. I honestly wonder if my body is wiped from fighting off the recent flu that’s been going through the school, or from dealing with the stress of our recent financial shortfalls.

Either way, I don’t feel guilty for finally getting some much needed rest.

Mobile Minutes: Function


Maybe the weather? The snow? The cold? Whatever the case is I’m struggling to function today. I barely had a “deep sleep” last night, and that alone nearly KO’d me today at school.
I have a million things I need to do, but that element of movement…my body just refuses to comply. This is going to make tomorrow night very difficult for sure I’m afraid, but tonight…
To be real: It just isn’t happening.

Mobile Minutes: The Curse


You know how it is, your body goes through a repeating task enough times to adapts to the unique environment it’s in.

For Example: Let’s say I get up for work at 5:30 AM, Monday through Friday and 4:00 AM on Saturday. What time does my body ‘wake up’ on Sunday?

Right around 5:00 AM.

Hence me typing this out…

Mobile Minutes: Taxing


I’m feeling it…
During the day I’ve been inside a school each day this week, and Monday’s training session in the evening just flat lined me.

So...much...paint...

I’m struggling…
The motivation is real, but my body is just wiped out physically each night. I’m worried that pushing it will lead to injury, and with season changes that’s the last thing I need to deal with.
Additionally…
Icing and heat processes, along with taping for support have been going on for my Achilles. This stems from an injury back in April/March. Frustratingly, I’m still having problems. I can’t cut well in the corners, and accelerating “lift” off my left foot is extremely limited. I’m not moving 100%. Sure, times are dropping, but I know I’m holding back because of the pain.
So…
With back-to-back 5K races coming at the end of October I’ve decided to do the one thing I despise in the upcoming month.
I’m going to actually see a doctor…
I’m not really happy across the board right now, tons of stress, and I’m feeling slightly betrayed by my body.
