I woke up this morning feeling down, after a weekend of not being able to much because of the weather ( it’s been so damned cold out) I felt a little rubbish that it had got to Monday but not really done anything over the weekend. I was unable to ride Zeus because of the snow and frost, horse irons and frost does not mix.
I have not been able to exercise over the weekend either so this morning when I woke up I felt like I had not really slept, so I felt tired and not doing much over the weekend gives you the false sense of fatigue. I was missing the feel good endorphins I get from exercise and I had also made some not so great food choices which only made me worse.
When I got into work, the office was freezing I was wearing so many layers in a bid to keep warm. Once I had started doing something constructive I did start to feel better. My brain was occupied and I always function better when I’m busy, then tiredness started to wane and by the afternoon i was back to my normal self ( and a body full of coffee).
Despite the bitter wind and frosty air I went for a long walk with the boys, they were snug up in the pushchair, sheltered from the wind by the rain-cover. The cold nipped at my cheeks and the frigid air took my breath away while the wind enveloped me in an invisible block of ice. I might be a little mad going out but I felt great when I got back home. It took me a little while to warm my cool, flushed cheeks but it was well worth the pain.
