No rest for the crazy...

It hasn't been a good day. It's 9:45 as I type. I got home from work roughly 30 minutes ago. I had a breakdown of sorts at work today when I was told that I'm not doing everything I'm supposed to be doing. To which then I have to reply, if I'm at work, from 7:15am to 9:00pm almost every night of the week, how am I not able to get everything done that I need to get done? How can you tell me there are things I'm not doing? I cried. A lot and loudly. It is the most frustrating feeling to be told that the effort you are giving, is not enough. That there is more you need to be doing and aren't. I don't honestly know at this point, how I am going to make it through the school year. In three weeks, I start a class that runs for three hours one night a week. In two months, I start coaching again. I am still working 2 nights a week at KSB.... where in the F am I supposed to find time just to be human? To all those people out there who tell me that I "get my summers off", I really want to say a big F U to them right now, because you know what. I guarantee in my 10 months of working, I STILL manage to work those two months of time, PLUS OVERTIME!

But, enough complaining... today's workout was a gasser... pure metcon... it looked like this...

50 abmats
5 rounds of
8 chins
8 crossover push ups
800 meter run
40 abmats
4 rounds of
8 chins
8 push ups
800 meter run
30 abmats
3 rounds of
8 chins
8 crossover push ups

I brought this in in 30:54. Period the end. I'm going to bed... thank you dark continent! Goodnight!

Is crazy a PC term? Just wondering!

I'll change it to mentally handicapped... just for you... ;)

Hang in there Katie. You'll make it through. You're a CrossFitter, therefore you're not lazy.

As far as where I've been, I just moved in to my first house. And for the first time in my life I'm actually considering which light bulbs to buy based on the "luminosity". Yeah, I'm stressed to the max. And don't even get me started on paint colors!

Justa said...

Ummm....I think I may have just been insulted! ;)

Have you discussed this with the other teachers? How do they get everything done that they need to? Are there some tricks you can use? Are you focusing on things that are of less importance?

I'm just offering up ideas, knowing full well that I have no idea what I'm talking about. I hope you find a workable solution.

I can relate - mixing tough CrossFit workouts and stress can take it's toll, for sure!
