Another low energy day. I don’t feel awake and I don’t feel like I’ll wake up today. Although it’s already afternoon. I haven’t had a proper night of sleep all week. Same problem as before; my shoulder doesn’t let me sleep.
It’s almost half a year now that I have a frozen shoulder. I am afraid I am still in phase 1; the pain phase. I can’t sleep on my right side, but lately I can’t sleep on my left side as well. No matter how I place my arm, it hurts. Not like crazy, but annoying. Enough to keep me awake and enough to wake me up, when I turn around at night and roll onto my right side.
No park run
I had big plans today. First a park run, then going to the farmers market in Eindhoven, come home, have lunch and run a half marathon in the afternoon. It didn’t happen. No energy. Instead Sara and I went for a walk. Only 5 kilometers, but at least I made my legs do something and we saw deer again.
I can’t say all this not sleeping is good for my mood. Running generally compensates for not sleeping. Well, at least as far as my mood goes, but not running today only makes me feel more down. Also, because I know I have to make my kilometers for the MUT Festival and for the Dolomoti Extreme Trail.
Big plans for tomorrow
Hopefully I’ll sleep better tonight. If so, I have a big running plan for tomorrow. I wanted to do a double load training. 15 kilometers in the morning, 15 later in the day, but maybe I can run 3 times 15 kilometers. That way my body gets used to the amount of kilometers I’ll be running at the MUT Festival, but has a nice break in between. I saw the Belgian ultra runner Oliver Verhaege doing it during his preparation for the Spartathlon. I’m curious to try it out myself.
The only thing I need now is a good night of sleep tonight. O, and going back to the doctor next week.
