Did I just write I never bailed on workouts?

This has been one of the most horrific and emotionally charged weeks at work ever.  I say week even though it is only Tuesday because there IS NO WAY it is only Tuesday.  That would mean I have 3 more days to get through before the weekend.  I have 8 more days to get though before a much needed vacation. I'm not going to go into the whys of the hard week yet.  Let's just say words I used to describe yesterday included disheartening, discouraged, depressed, disappointed.  I'm sorry to be mysterious, I just don't have it in me to go into it right now.  So today when I left work I came home. I did not go to the gym.  I will still get my 5 workouts in this week. I just couldn't do it today as planned. I was too tired mentally.

The icing on the cake yesterday was my notification from Vermont City Marathon that I did NOT get into the two person relay. It was a small disappointment in the big scheme of things but it hurt.  My daughter assures me I will be able to buy a bib but just in case let me know of good Memorial Day weekend races particularly in the Northeast.

So sorry to hear this has been a tough week! I understand about not having the mental energy to work out. I know you'll get it in! Hang in there!

Maybe tomorrow you'll find it in yourself to go for a run. A good run always helps brighten things up for me.

Oh, I don't like weeks where you need the weekend after Tuesday! Sorry you're having a rough one, I'm sure a good workout will help clear your head.

Sorry about the bad day. It's perfectly fine to bail on a workout. Really. My Coach says so :-)

Christina said...

SOrry about your bad day. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a better rest of the week, ok?

Char said...

Why do all the bad things happen at once? I hope things improve for you at work. I've got a friend who's a teacher and I know how tough a working environment it can be.

Sometimes you really don't feel like working out. Don't be hard on yourself for this missed workout, seems you've got enough other things on your plate at the moment.

Sorry to hear you didn't get in. Hopefully you'll find another fun race.

Johann said...

Hope things are looking up already. Hang in there, you are very strong. Sometimes skipping a workout is the best choice. You would know when that is and I'm sure you did this time. All the best for the rest of the week!

Anne said...

Ugh! I hate days/weeks like that. Time to curl up with a good book and get your mind of life for a while.

Liz said...

Hope you are feeling better and getting through the week ok. Take care. ((()))

I am perhaps more sorry than anyone that you didn't get in to the KBVCM lottery. "I" being Leandre, the Communications Director at VCM. Your daughter is very likely right, you should be able to get a bib using our transfer board here: www.runvermont.org/message board, but did you know that we also have a video contest running right now and we'll award a team to the person who creates the best/most popular video? The details are on our blog: www.runvermont.org/therundown. Please check it out and good luck! please let me know if you have any questions about either option.

It's ok to miss a workout - you will be just fine even if you get in only 4 days this week - no worries. We are sending you a great big hug from Colorado in hopes things start looking up at school. You are sensible and strong - you will make it to vacation. BTW, did we miss it, but are you doing something fun for vacation??? :-)

Rene' said...

We are doing the Run to Remember half marathon in Boston that weekend. hoping though that you can get a bib for the Key Bank.

Sorry it was a rough week. I hope it has looked up a little. Also, sorry you didn't get into the relay!

Dash said...

Sorry about Tuesday, sounds like you and I had the same luck this week! I'm playing catch up too! Bummer about VCM, I'm sure Emily is right, you'll be able to still get in! Can't wait to meet you next month! ;)
