working through stuff

This morning I was in a bit of a mood. I did NOT want to racewalk. I am still a bit disappointed in myself about the race on Sunday. I know, I know...I could not expect better after the technique fiasco of the last few weeks, and sometimes races just don't go as you planned. But I guess I just need a week to sulk a bit and get it out of my system. Regardless of why, I just wanted to do something else this morning.

So, I did 45 min on the elliptical, and then walked the kids to school and rode my bike to work. Lots of good cross-training.

With all the good cross-training this week I'd probably be shaping up well, except that I've been eating lousy. Grrrr. Like I said, I'm in a mood. I'm allowing myself another day to sulk and then it will be time to let it go and move on.

Are you sulking...or are you starting to simmer as to light that competitive fire up again?

One of the reasons you have had so many good results (and yes, this was one of of them, though you might not realize it until a year or two later) is that you do have that competitive fire!

Ollie, thank you for the encouragement. You have a knack for saying just the right thing sometimes. I truly appreciate your comment.

Yes, I'm very competitive. Sometimes I do need to turn it down and adjust my expectations more realistically so I don't get discouraged. And yeah, I guess this is a sulking simmer, because the 40K is my next big race - in September - and I do want to do well.
