23Jan12 - Mental Day

Went to bed last night not feeling that great.  I got up at 0400 and wasn't recovered yet.  No idea what is wrong but my head was/is killing me and I just feel crappy in general.  It never really came into consideration to go back to bed.  Getting to the gym and into the pool was my biggest victory today considering how I feel.  I told Kim I don't care about todays workout.  Just anything will do for today.  She understood and we got in.  Did a LOT of kicking today.  I even did a 500 kick set which I haven't done a set that long for kicking in over a decade!  Ended up doing over 1000 in kicking total today.  Another victory.
Did some pull sets which made me feel a bit better but then I did some flip turns...not the smartest idea.
Ended up with 3k today.  Nothing I would consider a "real" workout today but 3k crappy is better than nothing.  For some reason, I have a feeling my mental toughness is going to get a good deal of working this year too!

  1. Nice job! I have been in the same situation several times and it always feels good to push through and finish the workout, even when you feel like going home.
