Things are great, essentially. However, even when things are great, being that busy takes a toll on you after a while (I know, I know, slow down you say!) and it is still stressful on your body. Here is a great tool to illustrate just this point. It's just a checklist, with a column of numbers, and after you check any that apply, you add up any you selected, and read the profile and level of stress based on your life events and current situation. It adds up faster than you think it does!! For instance, we scored 388-- and that stress level (good and bad) can make us more susceptible to illness and breakdown.
To make a long story short, we did not go on our long run yesterday. Instead we re arranged our apartment, to make it feel a bit different, and cozy. Both of us had been burning the candle at both ends, and we needed to just stop and reconnect with ourselves and what's important-- our home, and the life we are living. The Hare mentioned our run, and I made the decision to skip it, and cross train extra today (p90x legs and back workout-- it was PLENTY of a workout thanks) instead. Your training plan can't be so inflexible that you burn yourself out, or sacrifice things that really matter, like your health and family.
It seems silly to have to post this, but neither of us had really sat down and thought about how much we are doing right now, so a break was refreshing, and we know that we will be just fine in the long run (no pun intended!). I posted this in hopes that everyone remembers that the path to physical health includes more than just nutrition and getting yourself moving!
