I just had my fourth Diet Coke and I'm trying to resist grabbing another. I was up at 5am with MoBob and now I'm really feeling like crashing. Plus I think I'm getting a cold.

I'm not sure why I feel tired after any sort of physical exertion. I'm envious of the majority who feel better after working out. I'd rather take a nap.

After the big proposal push on Friday, I'm now catching up on emails and other odds and ends. Mainly getting ready for my trip to NYC next week. I haven't been to NYC for, oh, ten years. I won't have much time for sightseeing unfortunately. I asked MB if he wanted to accompany me especially with the $40 round trip fare on "the upscale bus" and the $99/night room at The Pod Hotel but he demurred.

I'm attending the parallel NGO forum and then the first day of a conference at the UN. I wasn't really impressed with the UN when I visited. It was so much shabbier than I expected, and way too retro for me. Perhaps now the public areas have been upgraded, post-Nobel Prize.

I don't find that Emergen-C does much for my energy levels, but making sure you're properly hydrated before and after a workout does. I like to drink half-strength Gatorade when I skate, but eating something salty will solve the problem similarly.

Also, make sure that you're hydrated all day long, not just while you're working out. Watch out for stealth dehydrators like caffeine.

But most of all just give your body time to get used to working out.
