I know you’re not supposed to change more than one thing at a time when you’re trying to gauge outcome, but I’m so fed up with feeling crappy that I did the following last night:
- Closed my window to avoid construction dust blowing in, and dampen noise in the morning
- Opened up my box fan to clean out some of the dust
- Used my humidifier
- Took Nyquil
- Changed my sheets
I also changed my alarm for an hour later than planned and skipped an optional morning meeting. As a result, I feel a lot better. Not 100% better, but better. I don’t know if any one of those things are what helped, or just the combination, but I woke up feeling alive at least.
I’m annoyed at skipping runs in my training plan when I already don’t think I can make my goal, but I definitely won’t make my goal if I can’t get healthy so I’m trying to make peace with being “lazy” for a few more days. Fortunately this is a bye week for my soccer team so I don’t have to stay up late to run around by the river tonight.
