Training day 2
Well, it’s a Monday.
I dreaded work most of the night and when I got there, it was fairly relaxed, as my Boss was out of the office. I plowed through a lot of stuff, learned some stuff, was annoyed by a lot of things, and in general felt very disorganized.
When I actually got down to analyzing the day, I have actually finished 95% of the slides for the meeting in a week, and I have found some excellent resources for doing our annual risk assessment. Turns out this area is endemic for a lot of GI diseases. So, people…prepare your food properly, and we will see a lot less of you in the Emergency Department.
Funny thing is that I still feel kind of Stressed. I am still seeing stuff that makes my hair curl at work. And I feel responsible for all of it, but in truth, I merely find it, classify it and disseminate information about it.
I also spent most of the night worried about the plan. He finally sent the first week late last night. With this little bit of info…
So. I was sort of surprised to see this entire weeks workouts essentially VERY similar to the last 4 weeks. But, I’m good with it.
Today’s fun was a 2 mile run. Yes. That is it. After all those warnings about getting ready to do pool running (which I already do 1-2 times a week anyway). I get a Monday 2 miler. Huh. Well. No complaints here.
My time wasn’t too bad either for a short run.
I wanted to talk to my coach, but never even really got a chance to approach him.
I am thinking about running a half marathon in 2 weeks as part of the training. He will not approve. I’m in the process of deciding if I tell him, or ask him permission, or just run the race and bury it with my knowledge of it only…I’m going up to Jax to support a friend and I will need to do a 13 mile run (I think) and thus, it would make sense to run the half while my friend does the full. That way I don’t get lost in a strange city, I get course support, and yes..I get to see what I can do a little, though I wouldn’t really be racing as my legs are probably going to be feeling stumpy anyway…
Ok so….on that note. 2 miles in the bag.
