I dont mean to sound like a bitch and I'm certainly blessed that I have supportive friends and most of the time my family but if and when I can't complete a workout because of one of the above reasons or if I hear one more time" just get up earlier to get it done so it doesn;t interfere with the day", " What I have to get up at 3:30am in the morning just so that I don't interfere with everybody elses day. Has anyone ever tried to do an interval bike ride starting at 3:30am or a run on a treadmill at that time and honestly thinks its going to be a quality workout, I don't think so. And, I'm usually more spent and useless on a day like that than if I was able to sleep till 5 or 6am.
Anyway, I really am blessed to be able to do these things its just ironman and my racing means a lot to me, I don't train this hard or spend time away from my kids just for shits and giggles, I want to do my best and I love the journey, and I always just want to make sure that I've done everything that I need to, to the best of my ability to do what I am capable of on race day with no excuses.
I want to be a great wife, mother, friend and athlete, I want to be successful in every aspect of my life as much as I can. I just want to be able to get in my workouts without my cell phone ringing to say when are you coming home ( I've been gone for 15 minutes) or any other excuses people have to not let me do what I need to do for me, why is it so hard to let me do what I need to do for me. I don't want to wait until I'm 60 before I can do what I need to do, I'm not asking for a lot. Oh well, I'm just bitching now, I'm sorry, I hope I don't sound ungrateful, long weekend and I'm tired and all I want to do is swim and run tomorrow, lets hope for some uninterrupted workouts, please.
