Hi all. Sorry I have been away for a while. I have been working my long stretch at the hospital, so today was the first time I could have a free moment. I also realized that this is the first time I have worked a long stretch while on my training plan. Here is what I have learned during half marathon training whilst working…
-Long 9 day stretches of work at the hospital lead to decreased motivation to run on my part.
-While half marathon training and working at the hospital, my food of choice has become bean burgers on whole grain bread…..and lots of French fries! Don’t judge!
-Increasing mileage at home leads to more elevator riding at work. Funny how that works.
-Even though I am not putting in any extra runs, my muscles are more sore and my workouts are harder.
-Long stretches of work + half marathon training = overall bitchiness on my part…sorry Nathan!
I have 4 days off and I do not know what to do with myself. The first day off is always the day that I just lay around, organize the house, catch up on all the stuff I haven’t been able to do over the last 9 days (laundry, dishes, bills, etc). Even though Nathan helps with that stuff, it just seems to pile up. Today I meant to sleep in but I got up bright and early and started shredding old paperwork that needed to be taken care of, cleaned the house, put in a load of laundry, and played with Harley. All before 8am. Boo ya!
Hope you all are having a productive day.
