Day 4 – The Weekend is Here!

I am so happy the weekend is here! I stayed in tonight and got some stuff done around the house (laundry, cleaning, etc.). I also got a workout in, but it wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I think with the weight gain, it has really slowed me down as far as my running pace, endurance and so forth. I am still extremely sore from my leg workout on Wednesday so I’m sure that isn’t helping either. 🙂 But, I just keep telling myself that a workout is better than no workout, and it will only be a matter of time until I’m back to where I was fitness wise!

The other thing is that I have been extremeeeeely tired and sleeping like a rock this week! I feel like I have no energy, when I should be full of it! Can anyone comment on this? Do you think it’s because my body is adjusting back to a healthier lifestyle?

Anyways, I’m off to bed here shortly because I am exhausted! Going to run for as long as I can tomorrow since it’s my “long run” training day. Good night, and talk to you tomorrow!
