Fried like an egg

I wish I had a race report to post today.  I was going to race on Saturday but a combination of a lingering cold and a lack of training led to me spectating as my husband raced instead. The race looked like a lot of fun but would have, if I am being honest, kicked my ass. I don’t think I would have been able to do it without an awful lot of walking.

I am fried lately. Overworked, under trained, eating like shit. I’m congested from this unshakeable cold. I feel like my skin looks gross, my body feels weary, I’ve been getting headaches. Whine whine whine.

The truth is that I am just horribly out of balance right now largely due to the demands of two hugely important work projects. I’ve been working 12 and 13 hour days, main lining candy and Diet Coke at my desk, missing my kid and husband. I just haven’t been able to get done what I need to get done and still take care of myself and my family the way I want to. And that sucks.

One of the major work projects is done now and the other is about 80% there with the end in sight. I managed to sneak out of the office yesterday and go on an afternoon run with my husband, which was great. I have 5 days off of work (though I’ll have to do some work on big massive work thing #2 over the weekend) so I think I can getting more in balance.
