In limbo…

Posted on: Friday February 5, 2010

This whole week has been a derailment as far as training goes. I’ve been in the limbo state between getting a cold (I have the cough and the ‘not feeling snappy’ feeling but otherwise fine) and being A-O.K.

Work has been … busy. Lots of latent stress. Much of it is positive, but it still burns the candle.

It’s been too hot to sleep well, I haven’t been getting to bed on time and Claire has been waking us up at odd hours and I’ve made the call not to train until I feel like there’s no danger in doing so. With the Odyssey just two weeks out it kills me to not be training, but it’d kill me more to be laid up and going backwards.

Now for the bad news:

I’m about to be seconded onto a complicated project at work that is likely to involve long hours and very probably weekends. Best case it’ll make training very hard to fit in. The worst case is that I won’t be able to make it to the event, which would suck.

My approach for now is that even if I can’t do anything except for a few sessions in the gym in the next couple of weeks, at least I might still be able to go and have a little 100k adventure in suffering. The goal posts shift, but I still get to check the Odyssey box and put a time on the board to beat in coming years.

We’ll see…
