I could not get going today.
Every time I awoke, my head started having a go at me and I decided that heading back to sleep was a better option.
So, it took until roughly 8pm before I finally emerged from bed and I still felt really ill mentally. With just over 500 steps clocked for the day at that point I couldn’t see any exercise being completed, let alone getting out of the house for some fresh air.
But, first things first: I had to put the bins out. That required a fair bit of mental effort (and a phone call to the Old Trout, who as always helped no end by guiding me through every step. Although as she lives 300 miles away and hasn’t really got a clue what I’m doing on the other end of the phone, those steps can often be a little misplaced.) But, once that was done I realised that I’d technically got out of the house for the 5th day in a row.
And I gradually started to feel better. By 10pm I’d decided to do some dancercise. 1 song perhaps if I could manage it.
I actually managed a whole 20 minutes! My body now feels similar to what I’d imagine a sore, sloppy jellyfish to feel like, but one with a huge smile on its face. (yes, I know, that analogy crumbled a bit at the end, but I’m a Janathoner, not a writer 😉 )
