I’ve got to say, I’m feeling tired. Exhausted might be a better word for it. Now, I had planned an episode all about visualization techniques to use on race day. But I just can’t. So instead, we’re going to talk about something I know so many of you are going through along with me: being tired AF.
I have been feeling like this for months. Some of it is physical fatigue, like my sleep hasn’t been great, and running has felt ridiculously hard. But mostly, it’s mental tiredness, like I’m not functioning at 100%. If you’re going through this, you know it’s can be pretty concerning. But what can we do about it?
Tune in this week to figure out why you’re tired AF and what you can do about it. I’m sharing how we berate ourselves into doing even more despite already being exhausted, why this never solves anything, and the patriarchal bullshit conditioning that has got us into this mess in the first place.
