Honestly you cannot do it all, have some peace about it and don't fight it. I pull my kids in a cart for an extra bike ride and to spend Time talking to them. I run whenever I can & since I can only wake up early during deer season I fin that I bike and run at night once the kids are asleep. I hate swimming but do it at lunch breaks since the pool is mostly empty then and I can crank out the yards.
If i feel guilt about missing something I can always add some push-ups and pull-ups as a general flogging and be done fast. Then remember that the only person who gives a shit about the finishers metal is you but the people in your life give you that time and hope to get some back so rest up then and don't worry about having a real life.
I think that the tone on this one was great... not that all of them should be this way, we still need to hear from the Snarky Starky, but the fact that Rich as an amazing athlete can speak at the same level as Ben, the average Joe athlete is important for expanding the conversation. We need to see how to share this/these sport(s) with a broader audience that may not even know that they need some of the life transformation things that come from engaging in sport and a healthier lifestyle.
I think it would be great that in 30 days when you both get to podcast again (see, we do listen) it would be amazing to talk about what sucked about taking on this challenge as well as what was surprisingly cool about it. Then talk about what Ben is going to do next, not some challenge, but if he goes back to some of his old ways, how he does so more in a healthy mode or if he is now a plant power apostle, what does that look like.
