One of those days

It's not always easy. I'm not always motivated. Today is one of those days.

I have 3 amazing kids. I have a wonderful husband. I have a job I enjoy and I am very lucky to be able to work from my house and be with my kids most of the time. I love to train. I love to race. I feel healthy and strong. I'm lucky for sure and do not mean to whine... 

But... it's not always peaches and cream and I don't always spring out the door with a big smile on my face. 

Today is one of those days. Everything feels hard and I don't think I'm doing a good job at any of it. 

sometimes I want to curl up in a ball, so no one can see me because I'm so small.... to quote one of my favorite kid's books... 

Yup..today's That day for me!!!  However, I will keep trying. I am going to be more patient with my kids when they get home. Or... kid. The one I lost patience with this morning.... again.... seems to be an unfortunate stressful difficult trend lately.  Anyone write that manual for raising boys yet??? HELP! asap.... I'm a fish outta water some days I tell ya.....

And, Before that, I am going to go out on that bike and see what happens... the little power reading might be a little off today... this old body feels like someone took a syringe and sucked out all my good energy.  I need to get through a few tough training sessions in the next 3 hrs to prep for another Half Ironman sunday.  I need these workouts... so I need to snap out of my funk and get out there and do it. 

So here goes! I hope I can  later write that just getting out the door was the hard part. I'm going to try....

Well, crap, if we all felt good everyday there would be NO point! It would all be too easy.
THE hardest part of training is the managing the time with our kids and being a good mom while training - FOR SURE! And, I know you do a great job at being a mom, so it is OK to be "off" every so often. I know I am!!!
