Didn't feel well today. Woke up tired and felt so 'heavy'. Did my morning routine anyway. Then at work a colleague called in sick so I had to cover his tasks. That gave me also a morality dip, almost to crying. But I just did 1 thing at a time and I had actually a good day. Went home an hour early, because I didn't feel good (tired, headache..). I think it's just a bit too much. After a walk and eating dinner I felt good again. I hope I'll not get sick myself..

We finally mounted my medal hanger, it's already laying there for at least a year. I didn't realise I had that many medals (they're only participation medals, I never won anything), but I did 2-3 run events per year, so within a few years that's counting.
