I'm not sure if I can give an affirmative answer to that question. I started my second round of the anti-parasitic meds this morning and I am still dragging. My adrenal glands are burnt out. I have a lot of the classic symptoms of adrenal fatigue and even though I started feeling better at the end of last week and got in some good workouts, when I was off the anti-parasitic meds for 5 days all the fatigue and other issues came back.
I made the decision to skip out on the Lone Star 1/2 Iron distance race in April and I am hoping that I will be able to get my workouts in for Buffalo Springs. The fatigue is very hard to deal with. I can sleep for 8 to 10 hours a night and still feel tired and want a nap later in the day. The fatigue causes me to miss workouts and then I feel lazy and it is frustrating. I get angry that the people who come to my classes and workouts can always just say, "Dang, I am running out of time and I won't be able to make it to the gym today if I want to get all my stuff done." I cannot use that excuse. They would be P.O. if I was not there to teach their noon Step aerobics class. And then they give me the guilt statement of, "You are the only reason that I come to this gym. Your classes are so good!" ARRRGHH!!!
I have the Disney Princess Half Marathon in less than two weeks and I know that I will be able to run it. I am not running it for a PR but just to have fun and do it for the pictures and stuff. I just hope it won't burn me out for the rest of our family trip. At least the run is on the 4th day of our 5 day vacation. I can hear the Lazy River at Typhoon Lagoon calling my name.
Just as a word of reflection, if you are an endurance junkie like me or you just keep a busy and hectic lifestyle, you need to take time off and DO NOTHING and be a slug. I live in a climate that there is really no off season. As soon as tri season is over, it is marathon season. I think the Europeans have it right with taking the entire month of August off. It took forever to find a doctor who could tell me what I was suffering with and now it almost seems like the symptoms are almost too bad to fix.
Ok, enough of my complaining. Off to go teach classes when I really want to go back to bed.
