The half marathon training is in full swing. Once I let go of placing judgment on time and let go of self-doubt it became easier. However, self doubt is like a weed, I have to constantly pull it up and throw it out.
The only difficulty about this training so far is battling to keep it in the #1 priority slot of life. There have been numerous things thrown at me. They aren’t all bad things. Mostly good things. Opportunities actually. Opportunities that demand a huge chunk of my time. Opportunities that have shown up to fight with my training schedule.
So mentally and emotionally, I am drained and in the process of refilling my cup. I won the battle by the way. It was hard as hell. I gave my all to my proposal submission AND kept my training schedule AND handled the additional workload AND balanced the mother hat and the wife hat.
Perhaps I too easily take the all or nothing approach, feeling like I had to choose one over the other. Balance is what I chose. Balance left no sacrifice. Balance was key to having it all work out.
Until next time…
