Blah day, I miss exercise. I got pharmacy trouble sorted, a medication was out of stock until November so switched to a better, more local one. Busy day tomorrow. Will I feel up to it? Taken tablets.

Hip hurt again on walk today, going to delay running again for another week, maybe I'll try exercise bike at my parents later this week, but double time of what I'd run. Taken tablets.
John T

I'm able to do more than I used to last year for example, and anxiety is less of an issue, but I think this shows that abilty and anxiety are not the root cause of my bad moods. Having a cat has helped since February though!

Hip injuries aren't uncommon, especially when running. There's tons of stretches you can find online, or get a cheap foam roller to help! I role my legs and hips every day... Hope you feel better soon!

Had some help cleaning the flat over the last couple of days, it is much appreciated, but I don't want to take it for granted. I must do better myself. I had quite a nice day today. Taken tablets.

My hip feels like it is on fire. It was uncomfortable after my run yesterday, and siezed up earlier today. I'm in pain, I daren't bare full weight on it, I have a stick. Tomorrow's run is cancelled.

4.5. Poor run this morning, weather was ideal, but I just ran terribly. Lack of sleep maybe to blame, but I've run well on little sleep before. Seem to be getting worse at running. Taken tablets.
John T
7d ·

Felt disappointed all day, but spending time with niece and nephew was nice. I don't know how my brother does it. A few hours a week is enough for me.

John T
7d ·

Maybe I need more calories to run better. I need to find a balance between continuing to lose weight and improving the amount of exercise. Need to keep a calorie deficit but maybe it's wishing thinking part of my craving for sweet things.

There's good calories and bad ones! Good fats and bad fats. Less sugar and saturated fats, more natural fats and natural energy. Nuts are great (I eat a lot of cashews). Oats. Caffeine helps!

Jeff M

Also, like everything else we do, you will plateau. This is normal. Just have to work through it. Keep going, buddy! You can do this!

Jeff M

I really struggled with working out in the morning. Then I got up earlier so I could eat and have coffee before going, and it makes a huge difference!

Caffeine is a good point, I've ran well after a big mug of tea before now...

Not looking forward to waking up early tomorrow and running. Getting sick of it. I've skipped a run I need to make up the day after too, at least Wednesday is going to be cool. Taken tablets.
John T
06 Aug 2018 ·

Maybe I'll go to the park (not the one near my flat - it's too small) on Wednesday seen as I'll be able to go any time of day. Maybe I just need to change routes up.

Jeff M
06 Aug 2018 ·

That's another good plan! Change things up...run different areas or different surfaces (like trails?). Finding people to run with helps. Or even bringing headphones and changing the music up can help.

Jeff M
06 Aug 2018 ·

FWIW, I LOATHE getting up early and running, especially since it's dark. But it really does make you feel better afterward and kickstart the day!

John T
06 Aug 2018 ·

Makes me want to go back to bed a lot of the time! I started running a few different trails one run a week, these are shorter than my normal runs because I find more hills and uneven ground difficult.

My run this morning was tough in the sun. I switched to walking twice for a minute or so. So I am retrospectively calling it 'speed work'. Hopefully tomorrow will be better or I probably will just give up.

Jeff M
07 Aug 2018 ·

Don't give up, John! It will be worth it. There is no shame in walking bits. I walked a bit of the big hill on my 5-mile run this morning.

The heat is bad here, too. Today we're down to 30 C, what a relief! Hope the coolness gets to you soon. And dealing with the past is such a great challenge. A lot of work, and grieving and letting go (at least for me). Sometimes it just cuts me down

I had nervous stomach listening to football on radio. Glad I didn't buy a season ticket, I don't think I could take it, especially with that result. Also if my neighbour who dumped their old fridge by my back door is reading: Just don't.

John T
04 Aug 2018 ·

A.J. ingredients included extra hot vindaloo curry powder, my own naga chilli spice mix, Mexican insanity sauce my brother gave me, home made Carolina reaper chilli sauce. I used a few too many dry powders, it made the sauce a bit too thick...

Glad your dizziness is better, though. Do you have low blood pressure due to your medication?

John T

I just meant I feel like I'm only living a little part of what life has to offer. (Or that a zombie bit off my left buttock)

John T
01 Aug 2018 ·

Yeah.

John T
01 Aug 2018 ·

Or maybe that I am not entirely capable of experiencing the whole of what life has to offer. I think is a better explanation.

Manda P

I feel that way too. Like there will be this whole huge part I miss out on.

Alicia B
02 Aug 2018 ·

I know the feeling, I get it in my numb periods a lot. I used to have Zombie as my nickname heh

Alicia B
02 Aug 2018 ·

The numb periods come after a crisis of sadness and general wanting to die-ness. It looks like for you it's a bit similar.

John T
02 Aug 2018 ·

My old friend Hollie is also Zombie! I haven't felt numb recently. I'm lucky not to have had a major crisis for 4 years. Plenty of bad days, and I suppose numbness still applies after those, but to a lesser extent.

Drinking salt water sounds horrible? Are you looking to replace sodium loss? There are sugar pills. I take S-caps on a run. Sodium and electrolytes. Plus, you pee out whatever your body doesn't need.
