The pace of my life is fast. Even when nothing is going on, something is still happening. I have 4 children, my own coaching business, and about a half dozen side jobs floating around.
I would LOVE to pretend that I am Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, I am not.
You know the saying, “when you want something done ask the busiest person in the room.” That busy person would be me. Although, now that I am a bit older and hopefully wiser I can say no.
I have big goals for 2014- because obviously everything else in paragraph 1 isn’t enough. Seriously, I NEED these personal goals. Sometimes, I think I need these goals because the stuff in my life is so overwhelming and busy.
I am training for a 100 miler, a 50k, about a half dozen or so triathlons. I need these things. When I don’t exercise, I am like a Border Collie that hasn’t been walked. It ain’t pretty folks.
It gets ugly sometimes. On Saturday, I was determined to do my long run. It was a bit warmer than normal, but it was pouring rain, snowy, muddy, and VERY icy. I also had an extremely hard double workout the day before. I should’ve waited. I could have REALLY gotten hurt. I should’ve known better. To be honest, I did know better. I just wanted to do what I wanted to do.
I spent a few days recovering from the “should’ve know better run” because I blasted the stabilizer muscles in my feet, ankles, legs, and hips. And thank you Mother Mary that I did not fall on the sheets of ice on the trails. And I still have drama and a messy house. It was there when I returned from the run/slide.
I guess the moral of this note, is sometimes we do stupid things even when we know better. I am not even close to perfect. I am just another person on this crazy journey of life. Hang in there friends. We get done what needs to be done.
