Healthy You Check In Week 6; Training Update

I'm here. I'm working. I am EXHAUSTED. Training is taking much more out of me than I thought it would. But here are my updates:

Friday I missed my evening workout because I had an emergency client meeting that didn't end till 730, and then had a date at 8 that I actually had to push back to 9. Saturday was my rest day, and Sunday I did a 25-mile bike ride in a little less than an hour and a half, so that was good.

Yesterday...Yesterday I could NOT get out of bed. I think my ride was much more taxing that I originally thought. But I got a 40-minute run in last night.

This morning...Couldn't get out of bed. Missed my morning run. Will be combining my 30 minute recovery run and 60 minute easy bike into one workout tonight. And tomorrow I HAVE to get up early to swim. No excuses. I've been going to bed really late recently - between 1030 and 11. Considering my alarm goes off at 5 and I need at least 7 hours, I really need to be getting into bed at 9. I'll try to work on that tonight.

Tomorrow I've got an emergency doctors appointment. I've been having really nasty cramps for the past few months, all month (the monthly friend cramps, not muscle cramps), so I think somethings not right down there. There's also been a constant feeling of bloat. Imagine the physical symptoms of PMS, but all month. It hasn't been fun. Hopefully my doc can figure out whats wrong.

So yeah. Tired, bloaty, crampy...Not sure whats wrong with me. Blah.

Yuck, constant cramps definitely don't sound fun. Hope you feel soon better and the doc figures out what it is. I have some digestive problems, so frequently have those kinds of cramps. Bleah.

I hope the doc can help! I hate cramps even when I know they're temporary so I can't imagine what it must be like all month!
