I Skipped It. I'm Human.

In 14 weeks of training I think I've missed three workouts, today being one of them. I have no dramatic excuses or justifications, I simply had a choice to make - spend some outside-work time with the girls I work with or go home and spend 1.5 hours on the trainer. I know I should have been on the bike, but since starting this job in March, I haven't had a chance to sit down and really enjoy the incredible people I work with. So I chose to skip the bike.

I still have 115 days to Ironman Wisconsin so I'm hopeful that an extra "rest" day isn't going to kill me. I've been so focused and have not doubt I'll get right back to it. But for now, I'm ok with my decision to take a moment to focus on another part of my life, especially since those opportunities are becoming more and more limited every day.


  1. Spending time with friends is part of the balance that we need, we spend a lot of times training and not much socializing.

    Balance is everything I think :) I hope you enjoyed your time!

  2. Take the days you NEED - I'm learning that - by the way - Now only 114 days to go!
