The Truth

One. week. left.

It's starting to hit me. A few weeks ago, I was insanely excited about the idea of completing a triathlon.

But tell you the truth...I'm freaking out. And not just about my triathlon.

For the past few weeks, I've been feeling a little different.

I'm just plain old tired.

There's no other way to describe it. I'm really really freaking tired. Like all. of. the. time.

I went to my doctor and she told me it could be the aftereffects of starting a new job. While I'm having a great time at my job, teaching middle school can be stressful and that could be the cause of my sudden sleepiness.

I just want to sleep all day. Everyday.

I feel lazy. And stupid. And fat.

Seriously. I can't stand this! And the worst part is that it's making me re-think running altogether! Like, can I really train properly if I need to sleep so much? Should I really be doing this?

I have already signed up for the RNRAZ marathon in January and I know I don't want to back out.

I want to run it. But sleeping instead of running is not helping! I even missed another trail run with my running group because I couldn't wake up!

I'm going to go to the hospital to do a sleep study. Maybe I'm not sleeping at night? Sleepwalking, snoring, sleep apnea?? Not sure, but I need to find out what is causing this sudden tiredness!!!

Please send good thoughts my way. I'm going to need them.


  1. How is your throat? Sore lately? Maybe it is Mono??

    .... but new jobs can do that to ya too :-/

  2. Nope, I'm feeling surprisingly healthy for being a new teacher. And I'm not any more sore than usual. Oh jeez, I hope it's not mono...

  3. Oh no, I'm sorry, I have similar issues. DId your doctor do some blood work? If not, get the following checked out: vitamin D level, iron and thyroids. It could also be seasonal depression since it is getting colder and darker. I hope the sleep study helps!!!

  4. I'd get your iron levels checked out. You could be slightly anemic and that would cause tiredness.

  5. I recently gave blood and they said my iron levels were fine. :/


I love what you have to say!
