Well, I surely have been working Overtime. Here's XTC to pay tribute to my effot….
Lets see if this works.
This week I did 15 hours of OT. This next week, starting today I am doing 21 hours. I am feeling a bit tired, but better than I expected. We have had some interesting patients as of late, which is always nice, though sometime a bit nerve wracking.
I'm a little sad that I am not seeing much of the olympics. I;m watching, but at the times I can watch there seem to be very odd sports being shown. Or I guess stuff I am not that interested in. So far I've seen Team handball, Hockey, Soccer, and beach volleyball. I go to bed so early I miss part of the prime time broadcast even!
Running is going well. At short distances (5-6 miles) I feel good. I'm running good times. My pacing is still off and frustrating, but I assume over time I'll figure it out. (Tips?) I have not been running as fast as I am now in a long long time, so I think thats part of the problem. I have not done too much at the gym except run because of the insane work schedule. This coming week should be a bit better in spite of the extra shifts.
I'm starting to get very excited about running the Half in New Mexico. I just want to be careful not to have any expectations. There is going to be thin air, and with travel etc, I might just not perform up to my own expectations!!!
