What on earth could that number mean? It means that I am tired. My body is tired, not working with me... exhausted.
208 represents the number of miles I put on my body in January. Here is the breakdown:
Running - 142
Cycling - 64
Swimming - 2
Now I know that some of you probably have more miles than this... but for me, it is an ALL TIME high. Certainly, I have run more than 142 miles in a month. I do recall have 178 at the heat of my marathon training (right before I got fell off the treadmill). And none of the 208 represents the P90X that I do every morning around 4:30.
TriGuy the other day told me that I was over training after I was complaining about my body being tired. At first I balked at him... I mean, WHAT DOES HE KNOW? But then I examined the numbers and thought maybe he WAS right. I hate admitting when I am wrong! I freaked out a couple of weeks ago about my BF% and started two-a-days and other CRAZY things. Well, it has caught up with me. I have no energy. I feel exhausted.
It may have something to do with working. I am working A LOT lately. For the last two weeks I have clocked more than 20 hours each week... which is crazy. Usually it is more like 8 hours. And it isn't over yet. I am not sure how you working mothers do it... it SUCKS!
The ONLY benefit, (okay maybe the paycheck is a benefit too) is that the last couple of nights when I haven't been here to get the kids off the bus and barely made it home before bed time... I was a ROCKSTAR! It was mommy this and mommy that, and I love yous.. and all of the cool stuff that Daddy's experience when they come home from work. Usually, when they get off the bus it is more like, "Hi, Mom!" and then they are gone... getting a snack, starting homework. I know they love me. I KNOW they appreciate me (maybe not as much as they should)... but being a ROCKSTAR for a couple of nights has been fun. I feel loved. I feel appreciated. I feel like a Rockstar.
But to tell you the truth, I am sooooo ready to return that status to Daddy and spend more time at home with the kids. Next week is shaping up to be that kind of week and I CANNOT wait!
