So in studying for a huge ortho test I had at 8 am this morning, I somehow managed to induce a mild anxiety attack last night. Not sure how, but it was rough, and subsequently ruined my sleep.
I took a 2 hour nap this afternoon sort of on accident, just kinda dozed off and woke up 2 hours later, which meant I had to hit the gym at rush hour. My gym has one squat rack, and a lot of knuckleheads, and after I had already staked my claim after the guy currently on the rack and got jumped in line twice, I just gave up and went for a run instead.
With my background in cross country, I still get a release of mind and body on runs. Even just little short runs now can be super relaxing, despite the fact that my pace has slowed accordingly. Even so, I stepped out and ran a little 1.8 mile run in 16 flat, cruising and smiling the whole 2nd half.
I may still try to squat Friday, but with the upcoming meet being a push/pull, my focus is certainly more on the deadlift, so I may just do some back squat as accessory work, so I don't lose the groove.
