Yesterday I woke up feeling like death…my head hurt, my stomach hurt, I was tired and my entire right leg was shooting pain. I knew it was likely something out of place in my back to cause the entire of my being to feel out of whack.
Within minutes of seeing a chiropractor he pointed out “Even God rests on the 7th day, maybe take a rest day after your race next time…” BUT he just didn’t understand if I had taken a rest day, then I would have missed out on an amazing 6 mile run with my group and my longest stationary bike ride ever.
AHHH there it is, an acute case of FEAR OF MISSING OUT. I can’t help it I just want to experience EVERYTHING life has to offer and do EVERYTHING possible while we are in Florida because I don’t know how long it will last.

Three years ago I ran with 0 groups… now I’m becoming overwhelmed with groups and missing the chance to run on my own. However, I love all of the people I am meeting and friends that I am making..therefore how could I possibly miss:
Monday: Track Group - Hello great people making me faster
Tuesday: Swim group - Soon to start open water swims again…initiated by me, ooops.
Wednesday: Brickell Group - heck it’s right down the street
Thursday: Ki-hara with Steve, followed by Nike Group - Shoot I get cool things for showing up
Saturday: Girlfriends run - They are also training for a fall marathon, biking with David
Sunday: Chi Run Group - amazing tips on form and just all around fun OR yoga group
And let’s not pretend that Tuesdays and Fridays are do nothing days because that’s when I’m trying to cram in all the cross training. HOLY COW…what if I miss out?! All this is highly amusing to me because in the past I really didn’t care. Working out was for me, but as it turns out I really like these people and I like how being with them pushes me.
People have always talked about having trouble saying no…um that’s not me, I’m more than happy to say no if I feel like it will inconvenience me (hey. I’m an only child). Plus, I’m not a parent yet so there’s no real guilt for saying no to much of anything. BUT I am really enjoying just being around people after working at home all day..
So it looks like I will have to start some kind of a rotating schedule at least some weeks because the body and mind can only take so much buzzing around town. And on those days I will realize that what I miss out on in conversation, I will reap the benefits of in relaxation.
Have you ever found yourself suffering from FOMO??
Ohh and for those who wondered, yesterday was my first complete rest day in ages…the chiro helped but it takes a good day for it all to feel better. So this morning since I had no run group…um I went to Samara’s body pump class. Overall feeling better, but not 100%.
