Excuses, Frustration, and Lessons Learned

I was supposed to run today during lunch. This morning I woke up with a stuffy nose and the frustration of not being able to shake this cold for good. I almost didn't pack my gym clothes this morning because I was so disgusted. I pack my clothes and become even more determined to run. A surprise meeting during my lunch hour. No worries, I can run after the meeting. I discover I forgot my towel. No worries, I have a spare in my desk drawer. Early on when I started commuting to work I realized the wisdom of having a spare set of clothing and towel at work just in case. It's a bad day when you get to work and realize you forgot to pack pants. Then I go down to the locker room and start to change when I realize that in my early morning haze I had packed two running shirts and no shorts. This I had not been prepared for. This was frustrating. I do admit, before finally giving up, I did momentarily consider the logistics of wearing one of the shirts as a set of shorts.

Today I learned that I need to keep a spare set of workout clothes in my drawer, right next to my spare set of work clothes.
