Too busy to blog

There's a time of the year when this chief executive blogger of Pierini Fitness has a full plate of work and life and it keeps him from keeping this cyberspace oasis fresh with new middle-aged man reflections about living and dying, gracefully aging and trying my best to live a good and honest life.

During this time, which is now, I have a better appreciation for the farmer whose crops are ready to be picked and for my yesteryear ancestors working in that farmer's fields picking his fruit.

My current work overload makes me feel like a circus clown riding a six-foot unicycle while juggling machetes.

I could go on and on about my right now but if I did that would be at odds with how busy I am so let me just say I'll be back as soon as I can.

Until then, enjoy this Pierini Fitness treasure chest of over 700 blogflections. There are classics to be read if you do some searching.  If you do and read something that you really enjoy, brighten my day and lighten my mental load by leaving me a comment below and sharing your thoughts.  

Your "hang in there buddy?" messages are also much appreciated.

Right now, I'm too busy to blog.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

Having been in much the same situation in the past as our blog Captain, I developed a simple strategy that involved only doing one thing at a time, and finishing it where possible, before moving onto the next.
If it was not possible to complete it there and then, leave it until returning later, and concentrate on another task, while keeping the previous one out of the mind.

Everything was done in the end.

Training should be kept light enough that recovery the next day should not be necessary, as another key issue in heavy work periods is the pacing of one's energy.

If one allows himself to overextend into chronic tiredness through training too heavy in times of intense work commitments, one runs the risk of injury.
If that happens, the whole point of training is negated, and one might as well have never started.

An important thought I kept in my mind in times of heavy demands from my job and home was the reminder that it wasn't forever, and one day soon it would only be a memory.

Let us all carry the memories from those heavy workload days without bearing physical injuries from then, that may spoil the present.
