Wasting a Beautiful Weekend Is Really Annoying

Unfortunately this weekend is becoming typical. I have the best of intentions of getting in my long workout and something happens that prevents it. It is usually very easy to get in the weekday workouts at 4:30 am, the real trick is to get the weekend workouts in. This weekend started with a 10:30 soccer game for my daughter’s team (I am one of the assistant coaches.) After the game, we had the day planned out so if I wanted to get my long workout in, it would have to be first thing in the morning. The last thing I wanted to to was get out of bed at 4:00 am on a Saturday. Guess I would have to put off that workout until Sunday. Sunday morning started off normal. I got up and made my coffee and sat down at the computer to check email and catch up on news. Then the pager went off and Sunday was shot. Work would keep me busy from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm. A long workout after 7:00 pm would have pushed my bedtime and made Monday’s workout that much more difficult. So instead, I held off and did my normal Monday workout. I swam 1600m this morning. It was a really good work out, I can still feel the burn.
