How do you run when you're on your period?

Yeah. I said that. If you're going to be offended by natural lady business, please stop reading now, and visit someone else's blog on here.

Okay? Thanks.

So, my question isn't so much of running while bleeding. I've done that before, and had no problem. I haven't even had any problem with pads chafing me.

It's more along the lines of running while cramping. And tired.

I was wondering why the hell I felt so tired lately, and blamed daylight savings for sudden inability to get dressed. Okay, it's not an inability, but more like it takes me 20 minutes instead of 5 minutes to throw my clothes on. It's been difficult to get my thoughts gathered and headed the same direction, in general.

Aaaaand as you can see, my thoughts keep going off on tangents like a runaway toddler.

It could just be hormones. My hormones are f***ing f**ked up in general. Fortunately, with my Implanon, it's helped most of my issues, but I still get hormonal fluctuations that are as unpredictable as ever.

It's not even noon yet, and I'm ready for a nap, that's how tired I am.

And I'm tired because of cramps. I've had  worse cramps, but even this pain wears a person out.

I had to skip running last night because I needed to finish baking homemade cinnamon rolls for my coworkers and supervisees. And then I went straight to bed. Then Joe, my cat, woke me up at 4:30 and kept biting me on my chin and neck progressively harder because he was hungry.

I'm leaning toward having to skip running tonight just to go to bed early tonight, f**k homework. (even though I'm starting to worry about one of my assignments due on Friday night that I haven't had a chance to work on in a while.)

I just want to lay down with a heating pad on my stomach. Exercise wears me out, and if I'm already worn in the world can you work out when you're feeling like this?

Is today over yet?
