The night before last I stayed up past midnight reading “One Hundred Names” by Cecelia Ahern. You know how you can get stuck on one author and read #allthebooks by them before moving on. Yeah, that’s me with Cecelia Ahern right now. I cried when I finished this book. I don’t know if it’s because I was tired and emotional or if it was a really good ending to the book?
I was then woken up by a huge crack of thunder above my house, and a few seconds later, pouring rain. Usually I don’t get woken up by thunderstorms as I’m a fairly heavy sleeper, but this one was LOUD. It was 5am and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I had to get up for work at 6am so I felt like I was already ready to go back to bed as I got ready for work. I literally drank a huge cup of coffee while I curled my hair.
The rest of the day was kind of a blur. The grey skies, sporadic rain, and general blah-ness of the day left me weirdly tired and drained. I also spent many hours after work looking at apartments and driving around downtown Edmonton getting the feel for various streets and neighbourhoods. It probably wasn’t a great idea to look at places while so exhausted because I just ended up getting frustrated with my high standards of living and low budget for apartment rent. HAHA.
It was pouring rain at 5am so I didn’t the the balls to run super early. I drove around Edmonton for about 3 hours after work, came home and ate dinner, and could feel my eyes stinging from tiredness so I talked myself out of my run. I think a run was probably the best thing I could have done for myself but my less than 5 hours of sleep and general self pity caused me to convince myself I didn’t need to.
I get to sub a morning spin class this morning and you can BET I am excited about it! I actually teach three classes this week… bring on quad muscles like Beyonce baby!
Do you take a scheduled rest day or just go with how your feel?
Is your a weekend rest day or weekday rest day?
Where you live -> has it been a good-weather summer?
