I'm bummed

Today was one of those days where no matter how well you plan it, it just doesn't go right. I was on the road at clients all morning and in the early afternoon and was expecting to work a little late and then get my workout in at the gym. I received a phone call late in the afternoon that my daughter's taxi was not going to make it on time. Apparently Grandma got "delayed" at the casino. Well, I'm closer than my wife so I lose the coin toss.

I picked up my daughter, ran an errand for my niece, got my daughter fed and then delivered her to her gymnastics practice. I headed home, and oh yeah - I forgot to mention that I had to stop after my second client visit to pick up a new modem for my house as my other one crapped out. I figgered it would only take a few minutes to get back online after plugging in the new modem - I was wrong!! With Cox you have to call and give them some informtation off of the modem before you can get online. The process does not take long, but I was on hold forever!! These days you need the internet to function, plus I occasionally work remotely so it was imperative that I get this fixed which I did or I would not be posting this blog.

I finally got to the workout (at home, no gym) and did 1.25 hours of a two hour workout. I would have kept going, but I would have had to drive to a pool, swim 45 minutes and then drive back. That would have put me finishing around 11:00 p.m. I skipped the swim which is why I'm bummed.

This was a heavy week and I have a race tomorrow which I am planning to push real hard, but I'm still a little sore. My arms and back are sore from pull-ups, my legs are sore from about four days of hard workouts and I feel it in my triceps from yesterdays thrusters and today's burpees. I think this race is going to be a test of mental fortitude.
