    ^Isn't working how?

    Workout 3: Check. 50 minutes on the elliptical. Was trying to go to kickboxing class this morning but there was SO much frigging snow on my car and no scraper that I had to go back in after trying to defrost the window for 10-15 minutes. :d'oh: I know, I'm an embarrassment to the parts of the country that experience snow regularly.

    The snow is so beautiful and I really love the crisp winter air it brings with it.

    I have been walking, I guess. I went to the zoo today.

    I think there's something wrong with my brain though.

    Walking may not be enough of a workout to cause the endorphin rush that's often associated with the post-workout glow.

    If I've stopped working out for a while is this that crash? Or is this something else?

    Maybe your body is used to walking now and needs more for that endorphin rush, as Udog mentioned. Try running for a minute and a half at a time in between walking spurts, or sprint for a short distance, dance around at home, just to mix things up and see how you feel...

    Well, you said "I've been walking, I guess." Which doesn't sound like you are pushing yourself as much as you had been. (I may be wrong, though.)

    To get the mental benefits of exercise, you gotta push yourself a bit more. Enough to tire yourself out so you sleep better, force your cardiovascular system to become more efficient, and make your cells create mitochondria in response to the increased energy demands.

    Also, the short days of winter + the snow may be knocking your mood down a bit.

    I don't think this is knocking down my mood "a bit".

    The streets are icy. I'm afraid to run outside.

    Sorry to hear that. I certainly don't recommend running in icy streets. I'm just saying that you may not be doing enough to get the positive mental benefits of exercise right now.

    Are you still doing your indoors workout routine, and increasing the numbers? If not, that's fine. However, it may help you get back on track while the weather is keeping you to your home.

    I was more asking if this was a crash.

    Perhaps - I don't really have all the info to say with confidence. Although I'd guess if it is, it's more because of a variety of factors vs just working out less.
