By Milena Glusac
I saw the return of irritable Milena today. I used to know her well. Usually she only appeared after a hard day of training back in the day when she was running 90 miles a week preparing for a marathon. I used to deal with her by having her take an ice bath to cool off the burning muscles, eat and then crash in bed for a few hours. Usually that did the trick.
Well this time irritable Milena is working and has other responsibilities so time isn’t as bountiful as it used to be. Ten years ago the old trick might have worked but it is dated and irrelevant to the life I lead today.
Yep, today instead of relying on the archaic methods of 2001, I centered myself by taking my dogs, Parker and Mala, for a walk in the beautiful summer weather, rocked out to Rhianna in my car and then thoroughly enjoyed a cheeseburger that was strategically followed with a slice of cheesecake. Let me just say I am enjoying Milena of 2011 and I am enjoying my training a lot more.
