Tuesday Blues

Happy Tuesday gang! I hope your day is going better than mine. From the title of this post I’m sure you can tell that I’m having a case of the Tuesday Blues, and I’m not loving it.

This morning came wayyyyy too early. I woke up at 5 AM and couldn’t fall back asleep. This was supposed to be my day to actually sleep in! Sadly, my body didn’t understand. I decided to get up and start my day early with Mac on the couch drinking coffee and going over some new Jazzercise songs I learned last night. I was thankful for the few extra minutes to work on downloading my music and going over the routines for tonight’s classes, but I would have gladly stayed asleep in bed instead. Oh well.

I downed lots of Cheerios and coffee during my extra hour this morning, but it all went unpictured because, well, it was 5 AM. I got in the shower at my normal time of 6:30 and made it to work feeling extra lively with all the caffeine pumping through my veins.

I hit a brick wall around 9:30 from my lack of sleep and have been tired, grumpy, and icky feeling ever since. I’m a real delight today, to say the least. 🙂

The morning dragged on, and I headed home around noon to get some lunch and walk Mac. Luckily he was his normal perky self which added a little sunshine to my day! I still wasn’t feeling too hungry though, so I had a salad with lots of veggies…

Thank goodness for Jazzercise on days like today. I need a good workout to boost my endorphines and pull me out of this funk! By the time my second class begins, I’ll be feeling back to my normal self I’m sure.

Half Marathon Training Update

As for my half marathon training, yesterday was my rest day which I greatly enjoyed! I relaxed at home all night with Mac without any guilt. 🙂 I’m still a little sore today from Saturday’s long run, but hopefully my classes tonight will help warm me up and stretch me out enough to be ready to run again tomorrow morning. On the schedule for tomorrow is at least 5 miles. I’ll try to tackle this in the morning before work while it’s extra cold. If I’m going to run a half marathon in January, I’ve gotta get this body used to the freezing temps! Wish me luck!

I hope you have a great Tuesday! I’ll see you tomorrow, and I promise to be in a better mood. 🙂
