I have said this multiple times, but I am still amazed that I have no time at the end of each day. I wake up at 4-4:30 AM, eat, workout and then get to work. I work late usually getting in 9-10 hours a day, then home to family. Depending on everyone’s schedule I either eat, help with homework and then workout or I workout, eat and read to Grayson. With luck I am in bed by 10:30 to start over again. My work schedule is completely out of control.
I am going to pat myself on the back for getting the workouts in! Sometimes it takes creativity like helping with homework while riding on my trainer, or playing a board game while running on the treadmill, or swimming at 5:00 AM when the family is sleeping. I have every workout in my calendar from now until Race Day! There are some travel days that are going to be tough to get in the workout, but with luck I can do it. This week I started a new weight training circuit and am finding myself pretty sore. I also upped my swimming to one hour sessions. My first one hour block turned out to be a chore, it wasn’t about being tired but more about being bored. I wish I could just dictate all my thoughts while I swim, bike and run. If I did this, I would have written a few books by now.
Fundraising is almost at a stand still. I am disappointed, but can’t find the time to shout to the world all the reasons why making a donation to the Ironman Foundation is needed. I am excited to make a difference and hope I actually do. I am kicking off a raffle in October and we are discussing have an Ironman Viewing Party for everyone.
Thanks for continuing to visit my blog. I will try hard to post more. Good Night!
