Bouncing off the walls

Thursday, January 30, 2014

This is more difficult than I thought, being stuck yesterday because of the roads really did me in...It is one thing when I choose to stay in but it is quite another when you are told to stay off the roads. The anxiety kicked in and by 8pm last night I was on the verge of tears. And to add to it, I am still in a hotel, so no comforts from home.

I did take advantage of the TM down in the fitness center, ran my 60 minutes of intervals, 4.88 miles, then cooled down bringing it to 5 miles.

I am still bouncing off the walls this morning, it's part of my disability, all the extra energy is really great when I have stuff to do but it's when I run out of stuff to do that things get a little hairy. I get so anxious that I feel like I need to just crawl out of my skin, and the anxiety attacks start.

I am heading down to use the TM again this morning, and going to use the weight machine and get some today body strength training in. That should kill a couple of hours.

I am hoping to find a Dr down here tomorrow to help tweek my meds until I get settled. I just don't know how I would make it through without my runs though.

    You are doing great by exercising. Maybe you could find a hobby to help at other times, reading, computer games , maybe the hotel has movies to loan. I'm sure you will work this out. You prove you have determination by the exercises you're doing. emoticon

    Hang in there. Don't know what your future long-term plans are, but have you thought about using some of that energy to volunteer? A friend sent me a neat website They help match you with opportunities that suit your skills and likes. Volunteering is one of the "known" things that keeps you young! YOU GOT THIS!

    Panic attacks are not fun, I have them, I hate them. Exercise has helped me to keep them under control of course with medication. The weather has had me stuck at home for 3 days. I haven't been able to move much, so pat yourself on your back for staying motivated and focused. Best of luck to you and hope that all works out.
