Exercise Withdrawal Syndrome

I feel sluggish, tired, sleepy and irritable.  Not because I'm fasting.  But because I've not been training for some time.   Things keep cropping up and I keep having to skip my training sessions.  I don't like that.  I don't like that at all.

It got to a point where I was so sluggish, I just crawled into bed and slept like a baby.  The other night however, I've had enough.  It was quite late (by my standards, as I get to bed early) but I did my exercise anyway.  It wasn't much.  And it sure as heck wasn't what I am used to doing.  But it's Ramadhan anyway, and calories are not in abundance.  But the point is, I trained anyway.

The result?  I felt so much better and my lethargy was eliminated.  My brain was finally functioning at optimum capacity.  Could it be that I was suffering from exercise withdrawal syndrome.  I only felt much better after I got my training fix.

Oh well.  Better be addicted to exercise than to be addicted to unhealthy stuff.
