Grizzly Way 131210 (Strangest Week Ever)

Grizzly Way 131210 (Strangest Week Ever)

Where do I even start with all of this. I’m honestly not even sure where to start. Last week got really messy. Training wise. Sleep wise. Like wise… I guess it happens from time to time, I’ve been fortunate enough that I have been able to keep my life as tightly controlled as I do. It makes things like training and sleeping and eating well all possible, and dare I say, easy. The only issue, is that when things get complicated I don’t handle it all that well… Last week, more specifically last night, my first grad school application was due, and I spent the whole week stressing out about it, eating poorly, not sleeping, frantically writing and re-writing statements of purpose and editing resume’s. In any case, things just spiraled out of my hands pretty quickly, which is a feeling I loathe. Hopefully I’ll be able to rededicate myself to everything here once we get on the other side of the holidays. In the meantime, I’ll do the best I can with what I’ve got, and the rest I just need to let go of.

I’m not going to go through my typical exercise of re-hasjing an entire week of training. I posted about Monday’s already; really I spent most of the week just recovering from that, specifically the giant hole in my hand which kept me from a few things. The other thing you might notice, or is worth mentioning, is that my Airdyne has developed a strange wobble. One of the pedals, specifically the right pedal, has a shake to it, and a screw that refuses to stay tight. I’m going to do some googling and some calling to see what assistance the internet and Schwinn will offer me. Hopefully I can get it straightened out quickly, as it’s now been almost a week since I’ve done interval work, and I’m going through withdrawals.

In other news, Friday was our gym’s holiday party (we can’t say Christmas, can we?). Originally my plan was to make a socially acceptable appearance of an hour or two. But in keeping with my already messed up week, and weekend, I just let peer pressure take over, had a few dranks, ate some cookies, and stayed up till 2:30. I guess this crazy thing called living life, isn’t so bad after all…God I’m so weird. That’s all I’m gonna say for now – I’m picking up the pieces of my life, so hopefully we’ll be back to regularly scheduled training and posts in the near future. I also have like 4 product reviews to get after…
