These aren’t over-training symptoms, I’d recognise them. I’ve never been this overweight before and am not sure how I got here as I’m eating the same as ever, besides which I can’t imagine that just carrying extra weight could make me this tired. To make things worse, I just found out that a dear friend from my old gym has an aggressive and terminal brain tumour. He’s a lovely guy, a great husband and wonderful father and my heart aches for him and his family. I also can’t help wondering, since he’s not doing well, what might be happening to me.
Because something is. I’m struggling to stay awake in the daytime. There’s no question of even trying to get to the gym. I can’t ride my stationary bike for the 90 – 120 minutes I had scheduled either. Half an hour is ambitious – and I might not be able to do that. I knew that recovering from chemotherapy would be difficult but not that I’d still be struggling so hard after all these months. I’d go to the doctor if I had any energy. I’ll go tomorrow.
Right now I’m going back to sleep.
Although I’ve been too tired to post anything for a while I hand wrote this on February 22nd
