Bonkers

Is "bonking" to cyclists what "hitting the wall" is to runners?  Because if it is, I'm pretty sure I bonked on my run today.  Yes, bonked.  Because I know for a fact that there is no wall at 3.5 km.

I can pinpoint exactly where the bonking came from: New Year's Eve.  For the first time in five years Will and I (voluntarily) stayed up until 23:00 p.m.  (And with "stayed up" I mean exactly that: We simply stayed up.  No partying.  No loud music.  No dancing.  I know - we're wild like that).  And let me tell you this: It was a bad, bad idea.  We've been struggling to recover ever since.  Note to self: On 31 December 2013, go to bed at 21:00, as usual, and sleep through the festivities, as usual.  Your system prefers it that way.

So with that, our new year is off to a roaring start.  Things can only get better, right ;)?

  2. Hi! Found your blog through a comment on Kayla's ;)

    I am totally laughing at this, because I had to work SO hard to stay up late on NYE too, and I am not sure it was worth it. And you can totally bonk a run!
