This week I'll be a taking a totally unscheduled deload week.
Believe it or not, the water supply to the town I live in has suffered a catastrophic failure. We have had no running water since Friday and the latest news is that it won't be back on until the weekend.
What started as a mild inconvenience is fast becoming a full blown disaster with supermarkets selling out of water and water stations being setup throughout the town to keep us going. This has also led to my gym and most others in the town closing their doors.
It's a mess, people are furious (and rightly so) at being let down by a government which simply isn't doing enough to fix the problem. For me, in times of crises there are two schools of thought:
Option A: bitch and moan about the situation, tell everyone you meet about your turmoil and how imperative it is that you have the water back on and how awful your life has become as a result.
Option B: Embrace the challenge, play the hand you've been dealt, adapt to the situation and take what positives you can from it. Some people have to suffer this s**t full time.
While most people have a week of pissing and moaning ahead of them I'll be focusing on getting some quality running in, improving my conditioning, prioritise recovery, take many cold Navy showers and learning to adapt to the situation. Once I have the means to wash and feed my baby girl it's all good.
As with most things in life, attitude is everything.
