Regarding: Fork

As in, stick a fork in me.  I am done.  This is what over-training feels like.  No energy.  Don’t care.  Everything sore.  I am not cranky but more mopey.

And so, with the training cycle almost over and still one long run left on the plan, there is only one thing to do.  Rest.  As in, BACK OFF.  Not sit around like a slug completely.  But do something else.  So the 5 miles on the plan for today will be done on the elliptical.  And maybe not even all at once.  I could do 3 in the morning and the rest later.  Or just not even go this morning and just do it all later.

Who knows.  Who cares.  Is my training really going to be completely derailed if I skip one day?  NO.  It might even be better for it.  This is definitely one of those listen to my body (and mood) moments and it is saying BACK OFF.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. I need more exercise too. Ralph and I were away for a month at our home in New Mexico and since I’ve gotten back to NJ, I can’t get back on track with that. Food is ok but my stationary bike is mocking me. 😦
