Weekday Sunset

Week of February 5, 2012:

Monday: Short yoga session

Tuesday: Bike commute

Wednesday: Run!

Thursday: Bike commute (with grocery shopping!)

Friday: Nothing.  Total slothdom.

I’m not sure what’s going on with me these days, but I have been so tired this week.  I know I’m having a bout of intestinal weirdness, which I blame on Monday night’s dinner at Abuelo’s.  (This is the third time I’ve had digestive problems after eating out somewhere in College Station.  And now this is the third restaurant I will put on my to-be-avoided list, which is sad, because we had such a nice dinner there.)

I haven’t kept up with my running schedule this week, completing only one short run during the week.  I hope to redeem myself today with my other short run, and tomorrow I have a 90-minute run on the docket, which terrifies me.  I don’t know how much of my exhaustion is due to running, but I really don’t want another week of feeling lethargic just for the sake of a long run.  The upcoming week is going to be very busy, starting tomorrow, during which I’ll be in the lab for several hours doing one part of a three-part experiment.  For today, other than my short run and some grocery shopping, I hope to perfect the art of slothdom in order to recharge my batteries for another crazy-busy week.


  1. If you were feeling ill, that may have seriously contributed to the lethargy. In fact, perhaps, it was not caused by the Abuelos at all, but was a bug in your system. I always need extra sleep when I'm not feeling well and tire more easily.

    I hope the 90 minuter goes well!

    1. There was definitely a bug in my system, which means it came from somewhere! I can't be certain that it came from Abuelo's, but the timing suggests a link...I felt fine on Monday, but on Tuesday, I felt sluggish all day and I had abdominal pain. I felt weird as early as Tuesday morning.

      I'm not actively boycotting the places that I think may have given me intestinal bugs, but I'm not eager to return. There's something about my system which is vulnerable to SOMETHING, but what that something is and how it's getting into me remain's frustrating.

      But I hope your weekend is going well, my dear!
