Not that much.
Running is improving slowly. I tend to try to downplay anything except big improvement, but I am seeing a slight difference. I'm managing hills better, and distance. I need to work on some speed, and also controlling speed again, as I seem to be just all over the place when I actually look at my pace. I'm enjoying it a little more as well.
Work is interesting. I've been asked to extend my contract and I have agreed to do so. I had been asked a few weeks ago, but then didn't hear anything more about it. Then yesterday I literally lost my temper with a Physician who was being un-cooperative. One of the biggest parts of my job is to advocate for the patients. In this case I was helping another nurse's patient (Other nurse was getting a new patient settled). And all the doctor could do was harass me about this and that and the other thing. I do not know why, but he really pushed my buttons. Luckily the Charge Nurse was there, and seperated us. Later the Charge said he didn't believe I could get that angry. He said I actually scared him a little. But, in the end, the Doc was spoken to, and straightened out. And it was acknowledged that while I can be apparently nasty, at least its over as soon as its over. I don't stew over workplace stuff. Its just stress.
Oddly, after the big blow up the Manager came by to tell me she still wanted me to extend. Essentially she let it slip that she needed one traveler and she preferred me to the other one thats there. I confessed to losing my temper with the Doc and she responded "Good for you…he probably deserved it" So, i guess for the moment I am Golden.
Teulu does not love the heat. He has somehow developed a nice hot spot on his hip. :( I'm going today to get him a new Elizabethan Collar to help it heal. And some oatmeal soothing bath, which I hope will make him feel better. He is still cheerful and tail wagging, but…I hate the hot spot. I always feel as if I am not entertaining him enough.
My New Camera has Shipped!!!!! I am very very excited. When it arrives, I will be posting tons of Florida Photos.
I decided to run the New Mexico Half. Even though its at altitude. I miss my friend, and maybe I'll get a chance to say Hi to her too. The course is pretty flat, so I wonder what that means with all the hills I am ploughing through here in Clermont.
Apparently, I am not eating normally, though I could have sworn I eat like most other people. I'm a little freaked out about this…which is a good indication of a problem. Will see this Nutritionist on Friday and see what she has to say. Food is fuel, but…sometimes its a bit hard to get enough fuel…and other times I have more fuel than I need…I hope this gets sorted out, but I am sort of afraid that I'm going to have to "be different" and I am not sure I'm ready for that.
