Rest day #3

Yep, on my third forced rest day. These days are always tuff for me. I always want to keep training hard. But I can only keep it up so long. 2-3 weeks hard then I need some rest. I guess its real good for me because my body absorbs all the hard traing from the prior weeks and gives me strength to continue the next phase. But they still suck. Its real hard for me to do nothing or just a little. I can only imagine what my wife sees, like what it's like to see my ups and down. And how I go through my phases. Its kind of funny because she seems to always know before I do, but really I know but choose to ignore my pain and try and push through it all. I can say it is real tuff to spent a lot of time away from my wife and kids( I mean pets:) ). One thing I miss the most, heck I cant even remember the last time I slept in on a weekend and did something besides train. But if I want to get where I want to go; on top of the podium, I have to train and train hard and train a lot. A lot of people just don't understand why I do what I do. I try and tell people all the time what I'm trying to do and they think I'm killing myself or think I have lost it. I might have but I'm having a lot of fun training and see how far I can push myself. I'm just so glad I have my family and friends who back me all the way and support me in all my crazy stuff, might not really understand why I do it but still love me and support me.

Wow after writing all this stuff I just realized all this thinking going on is a sign I need to get out there and train, I must be feeling better.

I can definitely see it coming! If only you could learn to listen to me...but I think that's against your genetic makeup. I mean you are a male - why would you want to listen to your wife?! :)
