I’m mostly joking. Mostly. I’m incredibly busy doing stuff that I love – writing and editing books, coordinating conferences, partnering with corporate training companies, preparing for speaking gigs, moderating online communities, and blogging (though not as much here as I’d like on this blog). Add to that longer and longer workouts, and here come the tears.
It was like this before when I was dancing, but unlike when I used to be this busy and dance, the workouts are not stress relief. I feel like no matter what I do I’m never doing enough, and never going fast enough. Then I got really sick last week and missed several days of training and I feel like I need every single day sooooo, I’m basically freaking out a little bit.
This is part of the journey that I signed up for, and everyone who I talk to who has done an IM says that they went through this and it’s completely normal, but that doesn’t make it less difficult. So I’m spending some time reading cheesy inspirational quotes, watching some cheesy inspirational movies, and reminding myself that I can only do what I can do, and celebrating my victories. And crying, but not necessarily everyday.
