Well since I came back from New York things went from kinda icky to hell raising annoying. Seriously. When I got back home Sunday, I found out that our pump to our well had died. Super. So no water which is really great with a 17 month old. So Monday we took off to spend some time at my parents Cape house while it was being fixed.
I figured it would be fine, it would force me to run outside since I have the Falmouth Road race this weekend and the Rock N’ Roll half the weekend after. No big deal, maybe it would even help me out. BUT I forgot to cancel my dermatologist appointment so I am now awaiting a bill in the mail for a missed appointment. FAIL.
Tuesday, I took Cooper to the beach and of course we sat next to a guy who blew non-stop cigarette smoke in our direction until we decided to leave early. Then on our way home I backed into a fire hydrant with the front of my car. Even better.
I had been planning to run Tuesday night but I knew I wasn’t going to get it in. When I feel extremely overwhelmed I have trouble running because I am a huge head case runner. Running helps me work off minor stresses and frustrations, but if it is too much my run is doomed. So, instead I decided to do an unforgiving pyramid that will keep me focused and on task since there is alot of counting. Math nerd for life.
25 burpees- 1 push up
24 burpees- 2 push ups
23 burpees- 3 push ups
1 burpee- 25 pushups.
If that doesn’t work something out or at least make me so tired I think less about an annoying couple of days I don’t know what will. Otherwise, pizza and ice cream sundae with peanut butter topping might be in my immediate future and I won’t feel the least bit bad about it.
Question: If you are having a bad couple of days what do you do to get out of the funk? Or do you just let it wear off by itself?
Quick Update: The pyramid helped…but so did this.
