It’s been a bit of a go lately
This week has been a full one of ups and downs, crappy sleep and some high level anxiety with a dose of blech.
One happy thing that happened to me since we last sat around the bloggy campfire: I am now a Nuun Ambassador for 2017!!
I used Nuun as my electrolyte drink of choice last year. There is always a tube (or two) of these electrolyte tablets in my bag. I have used a lot of alternatives in the past, and this has been the only drink that doesn’t cause GI issues for me. When the opportunity came up to apply I jumped on it!! So happy to have been chosen this year for #TeamNuun 🙂 (Also: Watermelon may be my new favourite flavour. Stay tuned as I have yet to try my Boost Lemon Lime, hahaha.)
In other news:
This week sucked hard when it came to sleep. It wasn’t until Thursday night that I actually had a full 8 hours. Wednesday night I was up and down with anxiety, only getting about 4 hours. Sleep is important for me, especially with mental illness. When it comes to training, sleep is one of the biggest things I try to keep as steady as I can. When I do, things are relatively easier to deal with. Also, I’m happier when I sleep well, lol.
I am getting close to the start of half marathon training. Yesterday and today have been very good days. I did upper body strength training on Saturday and was able to get 6.9kms in today with my BRF on the track at the Canada Games Centre.
I am hoping to keep this good momentum going this week, but I realize that life will have it’s own ideas and I may need to readjust to make things work.
As long as I sleep well, things should be okay!
Here’s to a week of good sleep and good kilometres 🙂
