Hello, this is a delayed weekly Update because if I’m honest I have been the laziest person around this past week.
I’ve been in a mental health slump and physically had no motivation to get out and go. I’ve binged eaten so much and feel like total crap for it… and to top it all off I have a cold, three days before my next race. Help.
I honestly haven’t done much the past week. I went to aerial last Tuesday and Runthrough’s chase the sun on Wednesday. That is all the exercise I have done. I don’t feel bad for not having done anything but I don’t feel like I’m best prepared for my upcoming races anymore.
On Tuesday I went to my usual aerial clas which I love. My teacher is very supportive but it’s not the same when I haven’t got Krissi and Laura with me. They are supportive, motivational and make the class a hell of a lot more fun!
On Wednesday I was having what can only be described as the worst day, without going into too much detail my mental health hasn’t been the best, I know why and I’m trying to deal with it the best I know how. Everything just got on top of me this day/week, regardless I made my way to chase the sun for Lizzie’s birthday run. It was a big turn out and lots of fun, it definitely brightened up my day. I ran with Leah & Jo and did a great 5km.
On Sunday I went along to the London Duathlon to cheer on Daz, who was running/cycling the ultra route. He absolutely smashed it. I was amazed at his strength and determination even though he was injured half way through. He smashed some pb’s and finished strong and I had a great time cheering!
It’s not been a great week for me personally but I’ve been able to support other people which has helped keep my mind off other things and inspired me to push myself a little more. I’m going to try and get in a short run before my weekend at Disney.
