No exercise (a good thing because it is raining cats and dogs), no “work” to speak of scheduled, but it is my errand day.
- Food shopping
- Bike Fitting Part II
- Delivery service to daughter #2 at college
- Oil change at BMW Service
- Pick up Josh and take him to swim team
- Grab some sundries at Target
- Home to make dinner
Presently, I am hunkered down in the customer lounge at Fields BMW in Daytona Beach – and from the sounds of things, I will be here for quite a while.
Now this is not a complaint, it’s just a statement of fact, I really hate waiting on things – I am a completely impatient person (have I mentioned that before?).
I am most impatient with myself – always feeling like I should be progressing faster than I am.
I am REALLY impatient while I’m training… Well, if I just go faster, I’ll be finished sooner… often to my detriment.
My level of patience (or lack thereof) is one of Coach Pam’s biggest challenges with me.
I am forever receiving texts/emails like the one I got last night:
“Let me know how the 14 miler goes – good night champion! I know you will rock it and love it – coaching tip of the day… if you decide to skip intervals in the 14 miler – make it the final 6 not the first 6 🙂 Patience my little distance rocket! and Pacing…”
She is so good to me!
I’m psyched for it though, and I will do my very best to be patient – although I really do want to attempt to run the entire distance – at Pam’s pacing plan. Hmmmmm, what to do?
