Today I slept through my alarm. I set it properly and it went off correctly. I slept through it completely. The music that typically wakes me up within five minutes or less, played for a FULL 45 minutes before I woke up! How does that even happen?
Okay…this is how it could have happened:
Yesterday’s schedule: 5am wake-up call –> run at the gym –> work 8-4 at job #1 –> home and changed for job #2 –> work 5:30-11:30 at job #2 –> finally home at 11:45 –> in bed and asleep somewhere around 12:30am. 19.5 hours total.
The thing is, that is a fairly typical day for me, with the exception of job #2 which I am usually home from by like 10pm. Last night I had to close which is the WORST, but happens infrequent enough that I deal with it when I do get scheduled for it.
So I slept through my alarm…so it happens, right? Well, of course I know that. And if I were reading a post of yours I would tell you not to worry about it. I would say it happens. I would say there would be other days. No big deal. It’s okay. Don’t stress out. Move on. Fit it in somewhere else. Or don’t. Either way, I would tell you that it was okay.
But this is me, not you. And I am a perfectionist. Maybe a little anal. Or completely.
Of course I know it is okay to miss a workout- especially when it is a swim; I can recover from a missed swim with no problem. I know it is okay that I cannot make it up this week, there is just too much to do. I know in the end it is no big deal. I know it happens.
But here’s the thing…now I can’t highlight the swim on my workout schedule. (Hey- I said I was anal!)
I am only three weeks into my schedule…yes, it was bound to happen, but so soon? I think I need more hours in the day! Anyone have some they would like to donate???
