I feel like I’m doing pretty well on at least two of the Seven Deadly Sins as of late. Sloth and Gluttony are my jam.
Admittedly, anyone who looks at my recent schedule will say I’m being ridiculous to even mention sloth, but anytime I don’t workout for a few days, I start to feel a bit lazy. Some of that is probably due to the missing endorphins. Some of it is likely due to the fact that fitness has been a big part of my life for so long. Missing a day here and there may not bother me, but significant time away? That’s unheard of.
I’m still working on this really annoying dry cough, which has made running hard, but I’m going to get back to my training tonight. Unfortunately, the plan has me jumping right in with 7 miles. We’ll see how that goes. Might flip flop today and tomorrow and start small today, then hit the full 7 tomorrow. I’ve managed to save some good tv on the DVR in preparation for the treadmill running I have coming up.
I also need to figure out how I’m going to get next week’s training done. I’ll be at my parents’ house. I think that to get in my 12 miler, I may have to circle the town twice. Should be interesting.
And then there’s gluttony. The holiday season is filled with all sorts of goodies, and I’ve been pretty good about not overindulging, but with a week of choir rehearsals and not a lot of sleep means that I tend to eat more to keep my energy up. I’m also trying to avoid hitting up the grocery store this week, which means a lot of eating whatever I can find in the freezer and fridge. Not good. I’m feeling a bit pudgy lately and something’s got to change.
So that’s my current state. At least I’m not dealing with wrath. It’s a pretty happy time, all in all.
