I have not been blogging much these past few weeks and I apologize. I have no excuse other than lately I am honestly feeling over whelmed. I traveled for work last week and it honestly took me several days to recover. I fell behind a week in my classes that week as well. Combine that with running a house and marathon training and it is just a recipe for disaster!
It is just hard some days and lately it feels harder than ever. By the time I sit down at night to get to homework and blogging it is already 9PM. I wake everyday around 5am and go for a run and then head into work. I feel like I am being pulled in 10 different directions and I am stretching myself too thin.
The problem? I know what it is, I need to learn to say no. I need to learn to be a little more selfish and think more about only me and my little family. But its tough. I have all these ideas swimming in my head, I have all these goals I want to achieve.
I love going out and supporting people and causes, I love taking Peanut everywhere and letting her see everything. So weekends are always booked up and I find myself wondering where and when the down time will be. Maybe it is just because it is summer time and here in New England it seems we try to do everything in the summer time since it is the only nice weather we will have.
It is my first time training to run a full marathon and that in itself is overwhelming. This is also my first summer racing period. My first 5K was in September last year so all this is new to me still. I am still learning to find some balance between it all.
One thing you can be sure of? I am not giving up in any way shape or form. I am as determined as ever to achieve all of my goals. First one up is Rock and Roll Providence on Sunday!! I am looking forward to having fun and experiencing one of the rock and roll races for the first time! Then at the end of this month I am looking forward to my first obstacle race when I head out to my first Spartan Sprint.
What do you do when you get over whelmed?
