Have finally settled back into a great weekly training routine which keeps me pumped and motivated, normally. This week hormones have settled in and I cannot seem to shake the black dog vibe - yes there are a few external factors out of my control affecting my mood, but I can not seem to shake it. In a strange way there is a sense of calm, I am eating clean 95% of my day - no panic, just calm.
So why is today so blergh, dark and depressive? Have I fallen into a slump and just need to kick my own arse or do I really need to listen to my body and ride out this wave, what is the worst thing that can happen? I will still continue to eat clean, be rested and ready for my cardio/circuit training session tomorrow and the Seven Bridges walk Sunday - why should I feel like I shoulda, woulda, coulda done better with organising myself today.
I cancelled my PT session last night as I felt like I had an alien in my lower abdomen trying to get out, not really ideal body state to train, does that make me weak, I don't think so. My body was trying to deal with a a couple areas of stress (back, tummy), I wouldn't of been in the right frame of mind or body for that matter to push myself 100%, wasting my time/money and my trainers.
Nutrition is the key. Training is still being completed, done,executed, just not today.
