I was supposed to get up early this morning and go run my speed run, but I never made it. As soon as I turned off my siren of an alarm and headed out to get my morning coffee, I knew that the morning workout was in jeopardy, my mind screamed for a couch and television morning. I don’t know why, but I felt I really needed some time to just chill, lie on the couch and do nothing for a few hours. That is what I did. So, the most unproductive morning I have ever had in the last few months.
Taking the morning off and vegging on the couch should not cause my schedule too many problems, I deserve a morning to myself every once and again. You see, I work from home, my wife does not work so is always home, she hates television. All these factors means, except when working out we are always together, which is not a terrible thing, but occasionally I just want to lie on the couch and watch television. I used to do this for a couple hours in the morning before I started my crazy work out schedule. Now I rarely watch more than an hour at a time and that is usually when I am eating breakfast before working out.
As mentioned, when I woke up this morning I just felt like I needed some time on the couch. So I lied there and watched mindless crime dramas(figuring I have a background in forensic anthropology its sorta ironic) and spent some time with my cats. Mentally it was very therapeutic and just what I needed. Back to work, break is over. So I still have a swim this afternoon and a workout session this evening and then tomorrow morning I will do my speed run. Not the way I had it planned, but sometimes we have to listen to our minds and not just our bodies. Til next time.
