It's the start of the school year. Already, the demands of my proposed second career in nursing have interfered with my training schedule. Aside from training, I do lead a normal life. I work two jobs and attend school at a local community college. In addition, I have a family and tend to their every need.
I do not enjoy adding a new activity (i.e. academics) as it coincides with preparing for a sports endurance event. I have worked extremely hard to get into shape. I enjoy my activities and meet fellow athletes. However, if nursing will pave the way to perfect my triathlon/marathon/cycling skills, I may have to adjust my calendar. Let's face it, reality is starting to set in.
