I needed this run more for mental health than anything else. I just needed to tire myself a bit and get a good sweat.
Last night I played hockey and I didn’t sleep well because I was pretty beat up. I had run 8.5 miles on Sunday, skated hard last night, took a puck off an unpadded part of my skate and generally was sore. As an aside, I played pretty well finally and was +2 in a 4-3 loss. I was not on (defense) for ANY of the opponent goals. So, I was happy. Of course, next week I’ll give up 10 goals in one shift, but for today I’ll think I’m making progress.
This morning I just need to get out of the house and try to loosen up. It was what I need although I’m even more beat up. All good though.
I think it’s time to just shut down for a bit an nap (even though I won’t sleep…so really, time to just lay down and opt out for a bit).
