Managed to keep myself upright in spite of everything

Back to work today. Felt a little sad to once again be away from the family, but I noticed that it was good for me to get up in the early morning as before. During the Christmas holiday I’ve managed to get used to get up as late as 9 am many of the days. Some of the nights I’ve even slept for 9 hours – very rare for me. I usually only sleep around 5 hours – 6 at most. Strange is, I think it feels like I get more tired from sleeping more. Last night I thought I would never be able to keep my eyes open on the commuter-train to work, but on the contrary I felt more brisk than I’ve done in quite some time. So I sat and studied the Analysis Calculus for the physics university course I’ve applied for. Refreshing! 😀

At lunch I took a 75 minute run. It was slippery almost everywhere, but at some places I even needed to slow down not to fall. In the end I luckily had managed to keep myself on the feet. Fortunately I don’t run so fast during my easy runs 🙂

Moments ago I also did the Bodyweight 500 workout once more. I think this will be the last time I will do it before the 4k time trial on Saturday. I wouldn’t want to spoil my performance with sore muscles. I don’t know if I’ll be able to find an indoor track to do the run, so hopefully it will have snowed some until then, making the surface a little more convenient.

Funny.. Just as I sit here and write it started to snow – Fortune smiles upon me 🙂
