So the 60 hour work weeks with family time in between has kept me busy. Training for IM #2 and buying a house have more than filled up any extra time I may have thought I had. Blogging has taken a back seat. Actually, it's more like dragging somewhere behind the car by now. My house is a disaster, as is to be expected with moving, but it's driving me crazy. I am feeling behind on absolutely everything, so when I went to the Y last night, I finally listened to the signs.

I got there, ready for my 3200 M swim that was planned. I undressed and headed for the shower. Goggles? Check. Towel? Check Swim cap? Uh oh. It somehow managed to crawl out of my bag. In 4 years of swimming regularly, I have never forgotten my swim cap. It's always in my bag, and I can't imagine swimming without one. I thought for a second. I could buy one at the front desk for $5. I could run home and get one of the many I have as backup. My house is only 3/4 mile away. It would only take about 10 minutes to go home and come back. Then I had a realization. Someone was trying to tell me something. Maybe there was a reason I shouldn't hop in the water. I took it as a sign. I skipped the swim and went home to do a little Pharmie upkeep. A bikini wax, pedicure, and leg shave later, I am now ready to head back to the pool. Sometimes it takes divine intervention...



Good for you!

Sometimes Pharmies need a break.


That sounded right on the money to me, Pharmie.

Good call.


Sometimes you do need everything to be lined up to be in the "zone" to train. Now you are ready.

0H my, 60 hour work weeks. Hopefully you have a break in there somewhere in the future as well..


Ha! Great to see you back. I did much the same thing last Sunday. It's awesome to take a little "you" time!


A perfect use of your time, in my book. Can't let those all-important tasks slide!


Nothing like at home spa time!


Hi Pharmie! Came by for a little mojo prior to doing my first tri. I found you via Steve's blog (thank God there were no pictures of him in a speedo!) via Tri Vortex's place. Thanks for sharing your IM Moo experience. Congratulations and good luck in the future.


All I have to say is....aaaggggghhhhh!
