Today’s lesson: sometimes you just have to be patient and not rush things.
Why do I say that? Well, given that I don’t get home until 8:45pm, I have always been of the mindset that I HAVE to get my workout done the second I get home. That way it is over with and I can spend time with the wife, right?
Well, sometimes other factors won’t let you do that. For example, tonight the little boy is STILL AWAKE even as I type this. Given that I can’t lay there and cuddle with Diana, she said, “Just go do your workout.” So I did.
Let me tell you: I went to work for only a half day today, but for some reason I came home feeling more exhausted than when I used to work tons of overtime. (Weird how a short work day will do that to you, huh?) So when I came home, I just got in bed with her, hoping the energy would eventually come. By the time she told me to work out, I still hadn’t caught my second wind yet. Still, it wasn’t like I could just lay there peacefully with her, so I pressed play anyway.
And wouldn’t you know it? I was able to push harder and go longer tonight than I have in WEEKS. It’s funny how that works. Maybe I should convince myself every day that I will put in a crappy workout when I get home, and then I will ALWAYS wind up doing better. LOL
