Saturday we had an FTX (field training excercise) basically get all kitted up and tromp around the woods playing soldier with all the other soldiers. Kind of stupid.
After that I went for a 30 mile bike ride
Sunday I wasn’t feeling so good so I just went for a 3 mile run to try and get the endorphines flowing, ended up feeling worse.
Woke up even more sick Monday morning, e-mailed Master Sergeant Bolden that I would miss PT, and updated him on my week’s workouts.
MSG Bolden says I’m over training and that’s why I got sick. I don’t know but I took yesterday off and didn’t do anything, maybe some pushups and core exercises, but not much, and it was the worst day I’ve had for a while. I’m actually a little worried that the only thing keeping me going is the endorphine high I get from working out, because otherwise I feel depressed, extremely depressed. Need to stop ignoring problems hoping they will go away on their own.
Fitness is a marathon, not a sprint.
I said yesterday I was going to put in 20 miles on the bike.
So I did 25.

Aww hell yeah, this has been me for the last two of my five years in college.
