I’ve spent a big chunk of this week feeling like a failure. I began school this week and the challenge of balancing a full school load, work, Ironman training, the dogs, the husband and some sort of social life left me dry in many areas. My workouts were cut short or didn’t happen. I woke up late Friday and had the worst long run.
Despite my best attempts, training sucked this week.
But today I remembered that there is still tomorrow. There is still next week and next month and so many days to make little choices and little changes to get me to my goals!
I’ve also reflected on what I’ve accomplished lately:
Like fitting in fitness while traveling..
and running a half marathon!
FYI I don’t have a legit pair of running shoes right now so I ran the half in the Reebok Real Flex Transitions. These are my favorite shoes for CrossFit, shorter runs and regular everyday wear. They weren’t designed for long runs but they held up incredibly well on that Vancouver course!
Today I sat down and mapped out my week. I took a realistic look at my commitments and scheduled my training so I know it can and will get done. Thank goodness for next week!
Reebok is full of inspiration (just check out their Twitter and #getafterit!) and they’ve really been encouraging us to Get After It. They sent me some gear to try out during my workouts and it’s been the perfect motivation to get after it just a little more each day.
I am very happy about the gear I’ve been rocking the CrossFit Lightweight tank, regular fit Perfect Capris, No Show socks and NANO 2.0s!!
I’ve been asked most about the Reebok CrossFit Nano 2.0′s. I’ve worn them for several WODs and for everyday use and love them. They are super lightweight and minimalist and move with me during the workouts. Mine fit a little wide so keep that in mind when ordering.
What are you doing this week to get after it?
