Let me just start out by saying that I love my new job! Seriously, I could not wait until Squish went to bed last night so I could break out the computer and do more work. I sure hope this enthusiasm is reflected a few months from now.
Of course, in true Murphy’s Law fashion, the day after I started work Hulk left on a business trip, and our babysitter gave notice. Fortunately Hulk found someone else to Squish-wrangle, but I’m having to cut out early from work to get home in time to release the current Squish-wrangler. Plus I’m really sad she’s leaving because she’s awesome with Squish and does a great job, but I know I’ll like the new sitter, too.
In other trying-to-figure-out-this-new-life news, I had to cut my run short yesterday. I was supposed to do a total of six miles including four one-mile intervals but I knew there was no way I could squeeze that in with my new commute. So I did my usual four miles and threw in some strides. I’m going to have to drastically modify my training schedule; at some point I’m suppose to run 8 miles on a weekday. There is no way I have time for a 1 1/2 hour run, plus set-up and tear-down on a Thursday. So I’ll do what I can, rock my long runs on weekends, and not stress. I’ll also have to think about training while traveling for work. I foresee some hotel treadmills (dreadmills) in my future.
New topic, I rode my bike for the first time in over a year yesterday. My bottom is so sore, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to ride again today. Then I remembered that I still had a super-hard racing saddle on my bike. Duh. Squish helped me switch it out this morning to a super cushy WTB Speed V, and my ride to the train station was much more comfortable.
That’s all I have time for now, the train is almost to my stop. See you tomorrow with some more adventures!
