Today I did a single leg power hop with my opposite foot on a stability ball for my 44.
And, I’m completely aware that I look like a total goof in the video – I had already done 44 reps on each side and that was the 2nd attempt at a video so 20 extra reps!!!! Plus, I’m just not that coordinated!!! The good news is I still got a major quad burn by the time I was done!!!
If you know Lindsay over at Cotter Crunch you know that she is the epitome of a Sherpa wife!!! Her husband is a professional triathlete and she does everything in her power to help him and make his life and training as successful as possible. I admire her in many ways!!
However, I don’t think that I will ever be considered a sherpa of any sort. I want to be supportive and helpful and do OK right up until someone (like my husband) is sick. And then it’s an epic fail!!!!
I want to be more compassionate and I try but I always end up reverting back to the “suck it up” thing. I would like to say that it causes me stress when Chris is sick and that is just how I deal with it but I think what it comes down to is I’m more selfish than I should be.
Maybe I should shadow Lindsay for a day or year or so (cause that’s not creepy at all!!!).
Are you a sherpa? Does your husband wait on you when you are sick?
PS – after yesterday’s post about clothes and all I thought I would show you a picture of what I wore yesterday to run a ton of errands.
I did wear shoes and not fuzzy socks!!! Considering that it was about 7 degrees while I was out, I don’t feel at all bad. And, I was super productive yesterday and made it through my entire “To Do” list!!!
