Do you ever feel like the forces of the universe are working against you and your training? That’s how the past 2 weeks have been. I’ve had so much get thrown at me, influding:
– incredibly long and high stress workdays (12-14 hours)
– torrential downpours and thunderstorms
– nauseous stomach/vomiting on my long run
– forgetting my workout clothes when travelling out of town
I’ve still managed to get in many workouts, but I’ve altered or missed more than I would have liked over the past two weeks. I’m trying hard to set boundaries with work and not beat myself up. I don’t have time goals for NYC, but when you are marathon training every missed workout seems critical.
The past two weekends have been full of visits! Two weekends ago I went to see my friend Christina in Charlotte. Skipper and I took a road trip and we got to see Christina’s new puppy, Penny! Skipper was not amused that the attention (and his toy) was stolen from him:
In exciting work news, I got selected for a major company project, This is a 3 year gig that is the #1 priority for the company, so it’s a huge deal and I’m sooooo excited to go on the project. However, that means the next 30 days will be spent transitioning out of my current role. My new job will require me to be in the office daily, so no more working from home a few days a week. With this shift in work, things may be quiet around here, and I’ll be figuring out again how I make training work in my new routine.
I’m looking for any and all tips or advice on how you keep up with training when the rest of your life gets crazy!
I haven’t had a chance to do much with fundraising, but I did kick off my major event with my hair dresser! I’ve raised over $1,000 with the fundraiser, bringing my total raised to over $10,000!!
I will be cutting my hair in 2 weeks and I CAN’T WAIT!
