So I very well know that nobody wants to read a “sad sack” post – “Woe is me” thing…
It’s true though – I traveled most of the last week and aside from two awesome runs (one in Baton Rouge and another around the lake in Austin) I was completely buried with travel and work-related stress. Things are moving into the springtime “insane” period at work, and my schedule will become more and more difficult as we come closer to summertime. Additionally, without going into details the subtle dynamics of my job are becoming more complex and that is bringing about more stress than is typical. All I can do is put my head down and plow through doing my best work and know that everything should fall into place.
I haven’t been in the pool since last weekend (4/6), and aside from a quick 30 minute spin over the weekend I haven’t been on the bike at all. The worst part – I haven’t felt that burning, that crushing desire to get out there and move! That bothers me. Actually it pisses me off, as I know I’m just settling for bleh-excuses and meh-laziness.
Now this Boston-thing on top of it all – I’m incredibly angry and saddened. They say that if you want to see humanity at its most positive, visit the finish line at a marathon. Watching the coverage is heart-breaking, but also uplifting at the same time.
This must become my catalyst today. I have to move things forward in a positive way.
