Hello Bloggy Friends!
Am I the only one who is glad to see March coming to a close? This month has felt inexplicably long to me between my grandfather’s illness and eventually his passing, a nightmarish work trip, brutal weather, being sick and simply feeling exhausted from trying to catch up with life from all the things that took me away from my day to day.
I spent the last weekend being lazy for the most part. It wasn’t intentional, but I just couldn’t find my usual level of energy. I squeezed in a few short runs, but no weights and no long run. I visited my grandma and I spent a LOT of time on my couch, eating ice cream as well as some Tim Tams (Australian cookies) and Brie and crackers. I just felt like I needed some “me” time and some time to just do what felt good–even if that meant sleeping, eating 1.5 pints of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia from Friday through Sunday while watching true crime shows like 48 Hours Mystery, NBC Dateline and watching bits and pieces of the Walking Dead end of season marathon.
I look forward to starting April. A fresh month to re-start practicing my good habits, re-enter into half marathon training as my Fargo Race is only 40-ish days away and just work on making myself feel better. Essentially I am making April the month of Me and doing whatever I need to do in order to make myself feel less mentally, physically, and emotionally drained.
What do you do to revitalize yourself after a rough few weeks?
