Title: Health Q about Fatigue & Excercise
Post by: MrsCoolCat on December 06, 2014, 11:39:23 AM
Hi! I hope this is in the right forum section.
This morning I felt like I was hit by a bus and could not or did not want to get up after 8 hours of sleep. I ended up waking up at the 11 hour mark! On Thursday we had a health screening at work and my stats were all healthy. I did jog 3 miles that same day and yesterday I worked out for 30 minutes in the morning with weights and then probably walked about another 4-5 miles that day because of Art Basel (i.e. walking around the museum, parking, walking to get to food, etc.). Despite this last night I did not feel tired nor was I tired when I went to bed. I exercise regularly about 4-5x a week. When they say rest do they literally mean more sleep or just not exercise or like sit there and be a couch potato rest?! As I'm reading this I think it was everything between Thursday and Friday, BUT I just thought it was odd that I didn't even start to feel exhausted last night, but rather in the morning! Because yeah, I'm usually tired by like 9 or 10pm on Fridays if I'm "exhausted". Really, I'm just trying to be more in tune with my body and live longer. Thank you all in advance.

It just sounds like you must have needed it. Sometimes it happens. My other thought is that you might be coming down with something. Sometimes the first sign of a virus is that flat-out tiredness that you described.

Could be that your body was/is fighting something off.  I can get tired for "no reason" at the beginning of a cold - but when I rest on the front end, I seem to avoid the brunt of it.
