I am tired. No, I am EXHAUSTED. I went to work hopeful that the protocol that I worked so hard on these past few weeks would get rave reviews from the board members. Instead it was denied approval, meaning more work ahead for me. It’s not anyone’s fault really. We actually got it to the committee early giving them a full week to review it. It was a record that allowed them a record number of comments and criticism back. So now I have another committee review early next week.
But work wasn’t the least of it. Between the two boys, I have spent my evenings rushing home from work and straight to a baseball game for the past three days. There is another game tomorrow night along with swimming lessons.
By the time we get home from the games, I have two hungry and tired boys. These same boys also have homework to do. And tired boys mean boys that need help on their homework. It’s not wonder that I haven’t been able to get a few moments of computer time to write my blog.
This week, as usual, I’ve done my runs at lunch. I am on a 5-8-5 mile pattern during the week. I managed to fit in Yasso repeats x 8 on Wednesday’s 8 mile run. They were pretty much in the ballpark; I only had 2 outliers of 3:58 & 4:01. The rest were 8:51 or less. Tomorrow I get my usual Friday rest day. You know what that means ~ I get to work even harder on that protocol.
I’m tired, but I am also looking forward to my weekend training. I am looking forward to the break. I am looking forward to some ME time. My weekend holds 8 + 18 mile runs (that’s a total of 26 miles). That’s a marathon worth of ME time. I should be back to normal again by Monday.
