You know that nice tired feeling you get after a good workout? I do too, but right now, I haven’t got it.
As planned I went swimming yesterday and to the gym today, but my body wasn’t very cooperative. Even though I managed to get through my planned program both days, I could just feel that i had no energy to put in it. I’ve been feeling weak for a few days, and yesterday I thought I was getting a cold and that it was the reason. However, no cold materialized, so that was not it.
I had a chat with Ronny, who gave me my gym program, and he suggested I take a couple of days off from training, and then do a reduced program for a few days before I resume the normal program. Going from no exercise to six times per week can be a shock to the system, so it is probably best to do a soft re-boot and then get back into it.
As you may know, I have also been following quite a strict diet. And while that has certainly helped me to lose weight (6 kg since I started), it is probably not ideal when it comes to having enough energy to work out as much as I have been doing. I don’t think I will change the diet very much, but maybe try to add a few more carbohydrates. If my weight loss slows down by a fraction is not so important. The main thing is to reach my goals, and I know that if I am left feeling as lethargic as I have been doing over the last few days, I will not get there.
