How is it humanly possible for someone to run that fast. WOW! I'm having trouble getting to my qualifying time for Boston and they are done about my half way. it's nice to see 3 Americans in the top 10 for a change. Way to go!
I'm feeling better so far this week. Did a 12 miler yesterday and 4 today. My R hip flexor is a little tight - I'll work on stretching it out tonight. My stress level today is a bit high with problems at home. Hopefully - I can get things balanced. How does everyone else deal with the stress at home, combined with training for a Triathlon.
For the past 2 years I have changed my life completely around - living a healthy lifestyle, losing weight, and exercising regularly. My wife on the other hand has gone the other direction. I feel she has almost given up on life. Depression, weight gain and feeling bad all the time is the norm. I have tried to help her, I have encouraged her - to no avail. I am lost as to what else to do. I will try and have her see her doctor but she will probably refuse. She blames her ills on her past - growing up with a mother that told her she is worthless. I try and tell her the past is the past - live for the future. I just can't get through. She will not see a counselor. I am lost and I don't know how to proceed.
Stress only make training more difficult. I continue to push to get my training in but in a way I feel guilty that I am out there training and working towards a goal when my wife is drifting farther away. Has anyone else ever felt like this? Am I the only one? Why do I feel guilty? I will work throught this. Running gives me lot's of time to think, to get lost in my thoughts as the miles go by. To reason with myself and play advocate. As the miles go by, slowly, contantly, moving. Just like Life --------------
