I started a goals journal last week and it’s been helpful. I set monthly and weekly goals, which vary from meal prep to making phone calls. One goal in particular is to workout 3 times a week.
I’ve exercised twice so far and both workouts were frustrating. I haven’t worked out much since the 5k due to work being super crazy and my allergies crazier. I’ve tried 3 different medications and here’s hoping #3 actually works.
Anyway, workout #1 was using the row machine and then running on the treadmill for a bit. For some annoying reason, my legs felt really heavy, which made running very difficult. The routine was short but even then I walked a good portion of it. I was hopeful for my second workout but I had the heavy legs again. My sleep has been awful the last few weeks (see the part about allergies) so I wonder if that’s contributing. I haven’t gained weight in the last few weeks so it’s a bit of a mystery. I hope it’ll be solved soon because I really want to improve my stamina and speed but I’m feeling a bit discouraged.
