Listen to your body, not your sleepy head

Today’s workout (elliptical): 23 minutes

It was down to the wire whether I would do a workout this morning. I’m not sure why, but I’ve been feeling very tired over the past two days.When I woke up at my usual time, I felt justified to return to bed. Somehow, I ended up on the elliptical machine as planned. Listening to your body is a good way to decide these things.

It wasn’t guilt that got me there today. It was the practical need to complete this week’s training so I could feel good about taking two days rest prior to Sunday’s race. If I’d felt weak or dizzy I would have skipped the workout, but I had no such excuse this morning. Today’s elliptical session was light, but worthwhile. A core workout on Saturday is all that’s left and then I’m good to go on Sunday.
