Hey guys - I was out and about on Friday so sorry if I didn't make it to your blog. I'm going to try and catch up today.
Had another craptastic weekend, but instead of bitching about it I thought I'd do another choose your own adventure blog.
I took off work on Friday to hike with my husband, only to have him bail 30 minutes in (or less than a 1/4 of the way to the top).
Jay allowed me to come home, take a nap, then woke me when he got a gorgeous fire built. I spent the rest of the day (minus the run to Krystal for dinner and the gas station for beer) curled up in front of the fire reading my fluffy romance novel.
I caught my husband starring at a couple of much younger, thinner, taller, blonder girls walking into the restaurant before us.
I enjoyed splitting a piece of Jack Daniels Pecan Pie with my father.
Then there was Sunday...
Jay, who hasn't trained a moment - who hasn't done any sort of physical activity since the guys called him to play basketball 2 months ago - beat my 5K time by 6 minutes.
I got the opportunity to race with my husband and my parents yesterday and encourage them along the way.
I just felt like this weekend was one big example of how no matter what I do, I'll never be good enough. I'll never hike fast enough for him. I'll never been skinny/tall/blonde enough. I'll never run fast enough.
All of that - plus the fact that the conference simulcast is in April, means I desperately need to get started reading Beth Moore's So Long Insecurities - You've been a bad friend to us.
And thanks to every one who encouraged me on daily mile, facebook, and twitter even though I was being a Debbie Downer.
Hope you had a more exciting weekend!
PS - I am excited that this week starts my first official week of triathalon training! I looked over the last few weeks of the plan and its a little scary, but totally doable.
