I've been busy lately, both personally and professionally.
Yesterday, I took a long day trip to Sydney, leaving home at 5am and returning at 11pm. I spent 8 hours sitting on the plane and in the car, and I slept poorly.
This morning, I woke up feeling foggy and sluggish, with dark circles under my eyes. A part of me was tempted to stay in bed, but I now know better.
I forced myself to get up, get the kids ready for their day and go for a recovery run to school with Lorenzo, followed by an ice bath.
Of course, I now feel much better. My brain is clear and my energy levels are rising.
The path of least resistance would have been to stay in bed, but I believe that's not really resting or recovering. It's just procrastinating.
And I don't have time for that.
