Small Victories

Sometimes you have to take the small victories and run. This morning it involved successfully navigating past a few roadblocks to get a swim in before work.

Roadblocks
1 – Waking up at 5:15, need I say more
2 – Realizing that you’ve forgotten your shoes after you’ve been on the road for five minutes and have to go back home. (if only I could wear sandals at work)
3 – Realizing you’ve forgotten your belt once you get there. (was riding a little low today)
4 – Master swim is going on when you get to the pool. (luckily it was over 15 minutes after I arrived)
5 – Stomach pissed over the bread and peanut butter you fed it beforehand for most of the workout.

Now none of these were show stoppers but little things can add up quickly and sometimes they bring your plans to a grinding halt. Thankfully on this morning that wasn’t the case. It’s not a big victory but it shouldn’t be overlooked. I mean how else to we manage the big ones if it weren’t for the series of small ones leading up to it.
