Emotions Run Amok
It's getting down to the last itty bitty of this current deployment for my husband, which always puts me on edge without fail (always the feeling of the other shoe dropping, last minute extensions etc...). It's also the start of lots of new things for my children that I'm dealing with without my more rational half. Ms. Hotmess will be going to school without her beloved brother, who she's made the responsible party for all her comfort and happiness, and it's Mr. Handsome Pant's first year in middle school. I'm a mother truckin' mess!
Last week started off well with the 1/2 training, but as it wore on to a week till 1st day of school, I started letting myself get overwhelmed. When this chic gets overwhelmed, nothing outside of making sure the kids are fed, clothed, and loved gets done right. Therefore, I missed two days of run training. Two pretty important ones, actually.
Thankfully, I've been building my training base and that week will not hurt me TOO much, but I really need either for my husband to get back on time, or to learn some new coping skills when the going gets rough. Really, there are worse things to worry about in the world, so I should be able to handle business and get training done good and right. Never admitted to being Ms. Put Together during deployments though.
New week and game on. Full on strength training yesterday and a straight up run today.
