After having probably my first eight hour sleep in weeks last night, I dragged myself out of bed this morning, early enough to hit the bikes by 9:00. But I didn't much feel like it, and neither did Cuppa. We used the weather as an excuse: hot, humid, windy, cloudy, smog alert. Thanks goodness we had a handy excuse because I wouldn't have felt like it no matter what.
I'm not sure why, but lately I feel as though I am dragging myself through mud. Our last ride wasn't terribly long, but it was quite the slog: difficult to keep churning leaden legs. Even on rest days around the house, I have little energy.
Do you go through low energy cycles too, or am I just an old poop? My sleep has been off; my legs have no spring; I feel weighted down. It's as though I'm attempting to ambulate through thick mud. I don't make much progress in mud, and I feel kind of vulnerable too.
