But still ... there are days that totally stress me out and this week was full of them. I was planning to get in some strength training and yoga after work, but didn't end up leaving work until nearly 6 p.m. most evenings. And by the time I got home, I was tired, hungry and cranky - making it easy to bail on my exercise plans.
I need to think of a strategy for this. My work is not likely to get any less hectic, but I need to fit in some yoga and strength training and cycling (just because I like it) even when all I want to do is eat kettle chips and slam a beer or two. I want immediate gratification instead of earning it through a workout. Food for thought there.
Meanwhile, I'm really enjoying getting to know other marathon swimmers through the marathon swimming forum and on facebook. I'll get to meet some of these folks at the clinic in LA and again at the END-WET 27-mile swim in July.
I have a long swim planned in the morning, followed by yoga. And 15,000 yards on Sunday. I do love my weekends.
