Today marked the first day I went out and skated with the 9am crew. In the past weeks I just didn't feel up to it and when I did show up my back hurt so much I just bailed and got back on the bike. Today was a bit different. We did some sprints and attack drills that had me kinda forgetting the back pain. Of course it didn't last long and before I knew it I had to stop. It was great fun though. Much more exciting than just plain ol pack skating...although I love that too. But that isn't the point.
The whole time, I just felt so tired. Worn down. Shakey. I didn't know what was going on. Then over brunch with the family, I was yawning like a mad man. Couldn't keep my eyes open. Got home, took a mini nap and still I felt so weighted down. Well it is just now, at 4pm that I remembered that I took my allergy pills at 7am. You can guess the #1 side effect. Yup...drowsiness. Duh. Now I remember that last year I only took them at night. Lesson learned...again.
Sprint and attack drills = Jello legs.
