Rest days

Ok so I’m still wiped out with this migraine which means I’m taking a couple of days out of training. Thankfully I’m only teaching once today. Not going to class and hitting my commitment of 4 sessions a week makes me somewhat anxious. When I set a schedule I’m pretty determined to stick to it. If I don’t it feels a lot like failing.

Plus I’m not sure I am seeing any results as yet, I don’t feel any fitter at all and workouts never seem easier. Missing workouts just feels like getting fitter will take even longer. But as leaving the sofa feels like a challenge I don’t think I have a choice. 

I’m sure I will be glad I made this decision next week though. 


I went to crossfit this morning, a front squat session followed by wall balls and rowing. I used 25kg, all was good. Then 1.05 pm lightening flashes across my right eye. It continues to flash for minutes, a sure migraine sign. Cue a run around town looking for sumatriptan. This was followed by a PT session, boy was I useless. Now I’m broken and exhausted and my head kills.
