Finding that time to cross train is my biggest hurdle right now. My practical cross training options are: biking, cycle class, swimming, or yoga. I suppose I could throw in the elliptical, but I hate that thing with a passion of epic proportions. I'm frustrated because I feel like, as an unemployed person, finding this time to cross train should not be such a struggle.
Taxiing kids to soccer camp and baseball this week effectively ruled out both yoga and cycle classes. OK, then, we'll bike. I threw out the idea of biking to baseball on Thursday (about a six mile journey, round trip), and my eight year old proceeded to throw a fit. I maturely responded by sending him on a major guilt trip. But, the kid had a point. He's barely eight after all, he had played soccer in the same miserable heat and humidity that I ran hills in on Wednesday evening, and we were headed to b-ball... where he would be hanging out in the heat and sun. We drove. Was that the right choice? Should I have forced him to get his skinny butt on that bike so that I could log a few miles (which in the grand scheme could probably be described as insignificant anyway)? Who knows. I'm obviously struggling a bit to find balance.
