Mondays are Always a Struggle

Day Forty Two – Monday 12th of March 2012.

It was really difficult to get out of bed this morning when my alarm went off at 5:30am. I don’t know if it is because of this head cold I have or if it is just the repercussions of the busy lifestyle that I am living but my body is just feeling tired a lot, I am not seeming to recover over the weekend period…That is something that will need to be addressed going forward further into the year, it is only March after all!

After much internal fighting with myself I managed to convince myself to go and do some sort of session, even if it was a light one. On top of being tired my left leg is feeling quite numb today due to some vaccination boosters I had yesterday. I didn’t want to overdo the session due to this soreness in my leg so a light session sounded like a good option.

I arrived at the gym quite late (6:15am) and was on the bike by just after 6:20am. Today was going to be super light with no pushing myself at all, it was more a matter of doing something today rather than intensity. I set the bike to an effort of three (half what I usually use) and started off. I was only going to ride for a total of 20 minutes today, as I needed to make sure I wasn’t late for work at 7:30am. By the end of the 20 minutes I had ridden only 9km, I had gotten up a little bit of a sweat but nowhere my usual efforts.

Tomorrow I will continue to try and rebuild and refocus, hopefully it will get easier as the week progresses…
