In case anyone missed it, I’m experiencing somewhat of a slump with my training at the moment. It’s to be expected, I’m sure, given that I’m almost exactly halfway through my 12-week buildup. But still, that doesn’t make it any easier. It’s simply a case of the usual suspects:
- Exhaustion and brain fog
- Consistent and continual hunger
- Mood swings, anxiety and “the weepies”
- Lack of motivation
It’s not that I don’t want to train- that’s not where the lack of motivation is coming from. It’s that I’m just exhausted, and between work, sleep and something even resembling a social life, the thought of getting out there to train just fills me with dread.
So what to do?
