Do you ever feel like once you are feeling great and making progress, something has to go wrong? Welcome to my life. This happens more than I would like. Let me explain: I have been working out more and running and I have been feeling great, not only with my body, but I just feel happier and more energetic. Great, right? Well, today was a workout I’d rather not have ever had. I slept in, so I opted for a treadmill run instead of a humid outside run. Well my ankles were NOT having it today. It was extremely painful even to just walk on the treadmill, so I opted for the elliptical, but I was already discouraged. The rest of the workout was spent on mostly strength training, but everything just felt off. Blah.
On to the good! A few good things happened. Remember my coworker who was a complete douche canoe to me the other day? Well we talked about it and he apologized and there was a misunderstanding. He was being over douchebag and I was overreacting. The kid’s like my brother so we are a-okay now.
Also, I got dinner with a few friends last night and we went to a restaurant called Beach Fire, located, you guessed it, on the beach. It was a gorgeous sunset and it was a lovely evening to a good day. And I got a delicious margarita with a little baby corona….can you say YUM?!
How do you get through a workout when you’re already discouraged?
