“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
Tuesday is quite literally endurance day! After a 5.5 mile bike ride to work, I was on the treadmill for a 2 mile run before a full day at work then a 5.5 mile bike ride home and an hours jujitsu session this evening! Its no wonder I am tired!
AFter a 3 day bank holiday weekend it seemed especially tough to drag myself out of bed this morning and get out of the house, although I did get out and on the bike at a reasonable time and was fairly impressed with myself. Today I haven’t been feeling quite myself, plenty of things on my mind. Things I could quite happily blurt out on here, but probably shouldn’t as I am sure they will end up coming back to bite me on the ass! I don’t know if its a combination of all this stuff on my mind, on top of the fact that I am so tired, but I am feeling a bit fed up today. Yeah, I know I should be putting all this stuff into context and looking at all the many wonderful things I have around me, but… It doesn’t change the fact today has been just one of those days. It started off well, as when I was about to leave the house the sun was out and it was evident that I had just missed a big downpour as the ground was still quite wet, but with dry patches. I got to work , and after getting changed I headed to the gym and wanted nothing more than a bit of peace and quiet on the treadmill, just to get my thoughts together, and thankfully the gym was empty! There is nothing better than a good run to clear your head sometimes and a real good quote to go with it… “If you don’t have answers to your problems after a four-hour run, you ain’t getting them.”! Unfortunately some of my problems will take a bit more than a 4 hour run to fix, especially the family stuff that’s kicked off recently. All I can do is get myself to bed, try and sleep well and be better prepared for tomorrow morning!
