First Week of Work (Weekly Wrap-up Edition)

Happy Easter to those that celebrate!  Happy Passover to those who celebrate that!  And Happy Sunday to everyone else!

This was my first week back at work in a few months.  I have to say that it was a bit of a shock to the system.  So far I haven't gotten into much as first weeks usually are, but I think it will be a good.  There really isn't much to update this week.  I was able to get my work schedule to work around my gym class, so I still can go to that. 


Monday - I got my 3 miles in.  This run was right after my hard 12 miler last weekend.  My legs still felt like lead, but better then the 12.  It was probably good to loosen up the legs for a day sitting at my desk.  And it's nice to be able to see the sunrise again.

Tuesday - I was still getting my hours strait so I missed my class at the gym.

Wednesday - Was a good 3 mile run and working on skipping my walk breaks.  I basically did that for the last two miles except I got stopped a couple time talking to people out for their walks that I haven't seen since I lost my job. 

Thursday - back to the gym and trying to remember my locker room routine.  I do miss showering at home.

Friday - A very good 3 mile run.  Felt like I was really getting my groove back.

Saturday - I met up with the running group.  My last long run before Star Wars.  Even though no one usually runs my mileage and speed, it's nice to see the same people each week.  I did reach out to help out in a couple weeks.  I feel like I should give back to all of the setup and sags that they give us.

Star Wars Dark Side is next weekend.  Right now it's the last race I have signed up for.  I'm sure there will be a few more this year, but I'm kinda just playing this year be ear.  I'll have more exciting posts coming up. :)

How was your week?  Do you plan your whole race year or just sign up for races as they get close?

  3. Sounds like you are getting into a groove. I've got my locker room routine down pat - but did forget work shoes a few weeks ago! D'oh.

    1. I've forgotten socks, shoes, underwear. I've gotten to the point where I put extras in my bag just in case. :)

  4. Happy Easter! I'm glad that you are now able to continue going to your classes at the gym!

    I pretty much have the race "in mind" that I am considering but haven't signed up for anything past the Military mile in June. -M

  5. I hope you enjoy your new job! It's wonderful your gym and work schedules work together. I don't set my race year as things tend to happen that derail my plans. I have general ideas about races I may do and just go from there. Good luck with Dark Side. Thanks for linking, Heather!
