Monday, May 29th.
Memorial Day in the United States.
A national holiday, but having worked for non-profits for the last five years or so, I’ve gotten used to not having days off or acknowledging holidays.
Another day without a workout. The second in a row and the staggering 7th this month… which is unheard of for me, even when I’m suffering from serious injuries.
The work that I’ve taken home has increased stress levels and the amount of chores astronomically to the point that we don’t have time for anything other than cleaning, taking care of our animals and working.
This has affected a lot and in order to have the energy to keep this up, we’ve had to maintain our sleep schedule. Something needs to be sacrificed and that’s been training and leisure.
We never make it easier on ourselves.
