I never thought I would be happy to be back to work... but I guess it isn't the work that makes me happy (although I am happy when I deliver to a client on time and under budget). I am back to the ROUTINE. I did miss yoga this morning, but strength training last night made me sore from some odd reason. I actually used lighter weights than normal, but I guess I was really targeting specific muscle groups than working the entire circuit.
So, I made it to work a little early... got my first 32 of water in and mentally prepping for a run at lunch time. Out of all the tri events, running is definitely my weakest. I train and train and see very little results. Its discouraging at times, but I keep at it. If nothing else, its a great way to break up the work day.
No problems with my nutrition in the last few days, although I woke up hungry this morning. That's never a good way to start the day.
If I get enough time, I'm going to try to get a swim in tonight as well. The nearest pool is 35 miles away, but I need to do it. Probably a light and easy swim since my obliques are sore... maybe work on some form drills. I'm always amazed at how much those help my 100m times.
The melatonin didn't seem to work last night, but I need to give it some time. Like the doctor said, sometimes nothing can make you sleep when your stressed or in a stressful time other than waiting for that stress to resolve.
