SYBB - crash and burn

Sunday, January 24, 2010

So, rather that try to kid myself into believing that I'll get back at it, I think I'm going to stop thinking about the bootcamp and focus on what I have been doing.
Right now, I'm instructing TWO half marathon clinics. The way the schedules work, I have three week overlap =) which means I have to be REALLY organized two days a week and I run four. Plus cross-training. And the boys are home for two weeks. And I have a birthday to plan. And... and... and... oh yes, I actually work full-time. LOL, I knew I was missing something.
Today, I'm trying to get the housework and laundry done. One load is in the washer, one in the dryer.... so far so good. Everything is a WIP. If only I could just twinkle my nose and have it be done...

    I am with you. Gotta stress about the stuff at hand. You are doing plenty without the bootcamp. You will be better off if you don't stress about it. You know, I know your schedule emoticon .

    I also gave up on the bootcamp because my life at the moment won't allow for it. I know, you know how things are going emoticon .

    That is so much to take on! I've never successfully completed one of the Spark bootcamps even though I've started at least 4...life just always gets in the way. I wouldn't worry, you are super active and doing so much beyond the bootcamp! What race are your clinics training for? I'll assume the first one is the hypothermic half but what is the new one training for? Its so frustrating at Crowfoot right now because they have thrown a walking clinic into each of the regular run clinics, I don't know how the instructor deals with it all! Good luck with all that is on your plate :)

    I do get paid for instructing. The last time I worked it out it was a stunning $1.60/per hour. Yep, I'm definitely in it for the big bucks ;) Having said that, I wouldn't give it up for the world.

    I think it's a good plan. If you burn out, you won't do anything.
    Do you get paid for the clinics? I'd love a job like that!

    Is that all!!!??

    Honestly, though, that is an awful lot on your plate. Just don't burn out! OK?

    BTW, thanks for clarifying SYBB for me.

    You take care, hon!

    I did the bootcamp for the first week, and then gave it up for travel also. But I think I will get back at it starting tomorrow.

    With travel, my bootcamp work bit the dust too.

    I have run at least a mile and done at least 30 minute aerobics evwry day this year so far though.
