"Champions in any field have made a habit of doing what others find boring or uncomfortable." Anonymous
For whatever reasons (weather, kid's activities, etc.) a lot of my workouts lately have been inside on the treadmill or trainer. And honestly, I find both of those somewhat boring. And today, on my 2 hour trainer ride, it was even a little uncomfortable. But, I'm getting the workouts in somehow. I may have to rearrange them, but they are getting done. And I'm happy with that. I would like to get more long rides on the bike outside since I have a century ride next month, but I'll do what I can to get ready.
And while the kid's activities definitely alter my training schedule, I love watching my kids play their sports. We've had a lot of volleyball lately. Since I played volleyball in middle school and high school, I really enjoy watching volleyball. The girls have had a tough season (several injuries leading to changes in the lineup), but are definitely getting better and coming together as a team. They took third in the tournament this morning and played really well. They also had fun doing it, which I think is key. Today's 3rd place was a positive as they get ready for a big tournament coming up. Madison also had her first track meet last week and did really well running the 2400m. I think she might even beat me in a head-to-head race.
Soccer for my son will hopefully start this coming weekend. It's the start of spring break, so we need to make sure we'll have enough players (as will the other team). If not, that will be rescheduled. The boys got first place in a tournament a couple of weekends ago, so they should be ready and should have a good season. My son is also gearing up for his People to People trip to Australia this summer. And YES, I'm VERY jealous.
In order to fit it all in and let them have fun in the meantime, I'll do boring and uncomfortable if I have to.
