I try to be positive… really… and most all days I feel that I do a pretty good job staying positive. Some days being around or exposed to negative things/people just drains me. This happened yesterday and as a results I felt like all of my good energy was sucked out of me! After a good night’s sleep I woke up to being in just a rotten mode. Now I feel like one of those people….eaten up with a bad attitude/mode. Trying really hard to get past it. Things that are not helping today:
1. Cat throw up at the top of the stairs this morning made me wish I had no pets at all.
2. Dirty dishes from last night’s dinner stacked tall in the sink make me crazy.
3. Super irritated about the 80% chance of rain on Saturday. Holy mother – this will be my longest to date on the trainer. With rain on Sunday as well I will have to decide on getting wet for 10 miles or doing the dreadmill.
4. Medical bills. Let’s just say that even with the monthly payments we are still looking at over $6000. Need I say more? Some days it just gets to me. :(
I do realize in all of this whining and complaining none of this is doing me any good. Some days I feel that maybe drinking a whole bottle of wine would help….. we all know that would be a stupid idea. maybe hiding in a hole today would be best....lol.
One very notable, beautiful thing ….. SPRING IS COMING!!!
On a lighter POSITIVE training note:
My track session this week was taking to the streets. Scott and I started on the middle school track but that quickly was over taken by the high school track team. Only choice was to take it to the roads. Since the track is about the only truly flat area to run I knew this hilly session of 1600's, 800’s, and 400’s were going to bring new meaning to HURT. I gave everything and was thrilled when the workout was complete. Strong, solid effort!!
