So, we have all been there. Those times in life when we get a little to close to Mount Sufferlandria and training becomes the last thing on our minds. It might be the all consuming project at work (my current nemesis). But I also remember having new babies, complicated child care or schooling schedules, or other general life events which cause the same problems. Unlike sickness or injury we are perfectly capable of GvA’s “best” ideas but feel so burned that hitting Recharger day after day is oh, so appealing.
But, being the fierce Sufferlandrians we are the idea of abandoning our homeland for some time in Couchlandria is equally hard to contemplate.
So looking for some guidance or plan suggestions for these times when you are just too close to the volcano and crave some structured training to maintain gains made when life was a little more normal and to be ready to pick up again when normalcy returns. Ideally the suggestions require minimal mental effort to achieve (no hammer or shovel level motivation required) and provide a chance to get away from the heat and be able to return refreshed and recharged to face life’s other challenges.
