Weekely Update (Weekly Wrap-up Edition)

Well it's been an interesting week.

 

First Monday started with me not wanting to go for my run.  So I slept an extra hour and when I got to work to see that the building was being evacuated.  It turns out that a drink machine on my floor caught on fire.  We were displaced to different places around the building or went home to work there.  I decided to join our business partners on their floor and worked till I could get back to my desk.  It was fun sitting with them.

Tuesday I was supposed to go to my gym class and I got up and ready and went downstairs to put on my shoes, my stomach just hurt.  I laid down on the couch and just tried to let it pass.  I didn't have my laptop so I had to at least go into work for that.  I was able to get a Ginger Ale - having to go to another floor since they removed ours - and started to feel better.

I did get my run in on Wednesday but it was a crappy one.  It was hot and I'm really losing my running endurance.  But I got out there and did it.

Thursday we found our that our manager got a different position in the company.  It really doesn't effect me, but it will be interesting as we have an interim manager as we wait for the new one to be hired.

Friday over 400 letters that were sent to customers got sent back to us.  I don't 100% understand how it happened, but it meant that we had to re-stuff the envelopes by hand.  Not only that, we had to check them off a list, twice because we had a handful that didn't match the list.  It was tedious, but fun with the people I was working with.

Here we have an outdoor theater that does two Shakespeare plays a summer.  We went to one Friday night.  There was a chance of rain, and it did start about 15 minutes after the play started.  So we got a voucher to go back next weekend.  On my way home the isolated downpours seemed to have followed me home.  It was so bad that everyone was going 15 MPH just to be able to see anything.  We all had our flashers on to make sure we could be seen.  Major roads were being flooded and it seemed like every block we were splashing.  There was one road where the mailboxes had about a foot of water up to them.  It turned out it was just my side of town.  My folks barely got any rain and we got about 3 inches in an hour.

Friday I realized that my triathlon is next weekend.  WTF?1?  Where did June go?  Saturday I decided to join the Sunrise Ride and we took off around 5 AM.  Yes that's early, but seeing the sunrise is so worth it.


And seeing these sites just make the ride fun.


On the ride, I decided that I'd go for a run and do my first and only brick for this training cycle.  I knew if I could do the ride and then a 3 mile run I could do the race.  I road 35 miles and then ran 3 miles.  I knew I could do it, but this was just want I needed to figure out how hard it would be.  And it was hard.  I walked most of the last mile.  This will be the least confident I will be going into a triathlon.  We will see how it goes next week.

Saturday afternoon I went to see Wonder Woman.  It is such a great movie.  Who needs Captain America when we have Wonder Woman?  It was great to see a woman super hero of her own movie.  I hope to see more as the genera grows.


How was your week at work?  How did a race go when you feel you didn't train very well?  Have you seen Wonder Woman?

  1. I didn't realize that your tri was this weekend already!
    At least the inconvenient work stuff is giving you time to bond with your new workmates! Have a good week! -M

  2. Sounds like a busy work week for you. I need to get up early at least one day and catch a sunrise I am so not an early bird at all. I also need to go see Wonder Woman. Have a great week

  4. The last time I undertrained for a race it was injury related and the race was hard! Hope you have a strong final week!

    1. Thanks. The first day was me deciding not to get up and run. Sounds like the rest of my training cycle. :)

  5. Wow, that was a weird week with the fire, moving offices and the storm. It seems like sometimes things just happen all at once. I loved the Wonder Woman movie too :). Good luck with the tri!

  6. I had 12 hours of training last week on fluff stuff that didn't interest me at all. I tried to go in with an open mind, but it went downhill from the very beginning.

    1. Yeah, it's hard when you just can't get into it. I'm hoping it will be better next training cycle.

  8. Those sunrise pictures are beautiful! I still haven't seen the Wonder Woman movie, but really would love to go. I honestly haven't been to the movie theater since I was pregnant with our daughter, 3 years ago!
