I made it to about midday with feeling productive af, got all the 'chores' done, and started on my other work.... However, not sure if it was the weather, the fatigue from the long run, or something else, but my body (and mind) said 'no'. Not today. Today, or what's left of it, is to be spent chillaxing and doing 'nothing' (i.e. napping and reading and watching interesting videos online).
This turned out to be exactly what the doctor ordered, and despite that nagging voice somewhere reminding me that I still have SO much to do (those two novels to finish, the ebooks to complete, the client report to write, the website to update etc etc etc) I feel I am getting better at switching off the guilt. At just relaxing. Of taking a full arvo of rest and recovery. After all, none of those things on my to-do list are actually urgent or need to get done right this second this afternoon.
As a wise man recently told me: "You've got time, and everything's gonna be fine." Wise words indeed.
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, whether you're training or not: guilt-free and full of smiles!
