"It's not the changes so much as it feels that everything is ending"(I might be messing up the quote here, it's been awhile since I saw the movie)
Right now I'm making some changes in our family schedule, and while it does signal the end of some things, I feel like it's pointing to a positive future!
The biggest change right now is my 2.5 year old started a Mother's Morning Out program on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am - 12pm. While that might not seem like too much time away from my baby, it actually starts much earlier in the morning. Alex (my hero) offered to take both boys to school in the morning.
Translation - I have from whenever I wake up in the morning till noon to work/swim/bike/run!
As I mentioned in my last post I started swimming at Dynamo Multisport; which has been amazing! Today was my first chance to use this new found time in my schedule to meet with a web design client! It felt great to be able to get in a good quality swim and bike all before 10am today.
The best part? Picking AJ up at school and while he was clearly excited to see me, it was also clear that he is LOVING his school!!Once again, a change that I was unsure of (a little guilt about taking time away from my baby for work and play), turned out to be great for everyone involved!
This new change will also enable me to spend less time away from my family as I will be able to fit in a lot of my longer rides on Thursday.
While I'll still be doing most of my work at night after the boys go to bed, I now have the option to get some work done during the day! (hopefully leading to more nights of getting to bed before 2am)
Maybe it's just the endorphins from the 6 x 3:00 Z4 intervals from my ride today, but I'm feeling positive about the opportunities this change will bring to my family!
And just for fun, I finally uploaded the video my brother took of my finish at FullRev Cedar Point! Check out the awesome REV3 jumbotron!!!
