My Saturday actually started Friday night at 11pm as I had to work all night. After work, I had to dash home, make breakfast and coach my son’s basketball YMCA team. No Saturday morning Lucky’s Lake swim for me 😞.
After the game we did some running around, lunch etc. Then I got to run my 162 consecutive 5K. I have developed some sort of glute issue that is quite sore at the moment. I must really concentrate on form as to not aggravate the muscle further. Other than the glutes, I felt pretty good during my 5K run. What I’ve learned when I’m tired or needing an extra boost, I choose a new route with new sights and sounds and things to distract me from running.
After my 5K run, it was time to get my daughter to her 4pm basketball game. Her team won their first playoff game, so we got to stick around for the championship game at 7pm.
By the time I got home from all the days activities it was 8:30pm. Just in time for an hour and a half sleep before heading into work at 11pm. I’m really going to start focusing on my sleep. I just don’t know what to cut out? Sleep is one of the most important activities you can do for your health and longevity.
Although I was sleep deprived, it ended up being a great Saturday.
