No matter how you look at it, it’s been a challenging week. A severely reduced level of exercise hasn’t helped. You see, I’ve continued to take it easy on my knee in hopes that I will finally be able to climb the stairs without feeling it tug. That has yet to happen. And yet, I have been SO in need of stress release.
On Thursday, after a work phone conversation got very tense, I was thrilled to reach for my running bag. I skipped out on the Halloween festivities and headed to the bathroom to change. Sadly, my run plans to run were halted. I had no footwear.
Today, I was finally able to cross off many of the items getting me all geared up this week. Of course that was AFTER sending a message to CMO Joe’s personal email account. I hate doing that but a girl’s gotta do what a girls gotta do — less she start biting more heads off.
I celebrated this little bit of accomplishment with a somewhat hard run down the tracks. When I returned to find new issues had rolled into my email queue, I simply laughed. I pulled off my run gear one by one and piled it on my desk. Then, while still in my sweaty running clothes, I got back to work.
