When life does not go as planned, you adapt. You make lemonade out of your lemons. Look for the positive. All these sayings, I find myself using more than ever these days. My training has been off track to say the least. I get back on it for a few days and boom-off again.
My husband has faced many health challenges this year. Most recently another surgery. When training for my first Iron, I found a determination to work around this. Now the drive is not as strong.
My daughter has moved out to her first apartment which should make life easier. I myself concerned more because of the unknowing.
My dad will be 90 next year and for the first time i am noticing changes and he is slowing down. He is my rock and watching the edges crumble takes some out of me.
My son is great but has gotten a puupy- his first. the challenge of this puppy is that he is a great dane.
Oh and my job- I love it more than ever but with the economy my hours have been severely cut.
I am not trying to justify my lack of training but I am just jotting down random thoughts.
Next weekend is my first race- REV3 in Knoxville. It is an Olympic that I am totally unprepared for. A friend wondered how I let that happen and I wonder myself.
