Wow so much going on.
I had a rest week this week, so that was much needed. My darn quad is still achy and acting only about 80% right. I still feel like it is slowly coming along. But there is that nagging thought and concern about how/when it will get to 100%. My coach is well aware that it isn’t quite 100% but, especially this week, we couldn’t do too much for it. The pool is closed, massage guy is on vacation. Generally it works itself out. We had a nice long chat today mostly about life, and not training, but it all intertwines. It is also err, kind of HOT in Florida right now and so all of training has been a bit on the miserable…running in Florida summer side…
Work is coming along strangely. Firstly, no score yet from the audit we submitted on June 13. This is wearing on us all. We want to pass. At the same time, I suspect this first submission of mine may fail…I have submitted the second of the required templates, so now…just a waiting game.
So, I’m waiting. It is very very hard to focus on new projects initiatives when this score thing is hanging above the head.
I am apparently getting a new boss, that they are attempting to hire from the outside. Not holding my breath. That person needs a lot of qualifications and needs to be willing to move to this area, and to get along with our multiple personalities.
Today I was recruited to join a team to go to Nigeria for 2 weeks to team a rapid fire course on Ebola protection. I want to go but the contract is not fully approved. I am sitting here awaiting the phone call, and if that call comes in boy…I have to spring into action- I will have to drive to Atlanta to do a speed renewal of a passport, and oh drop by the Nigerian Embassy for my visa. Then fly out on Wednesday. My current boss approved right away which surprised me. I’m so nervous about this, not because of Ebola, but because of the projects I was mid stride with, and also missing possible deadlines, and also just anything that requires me to move that fast makes me nervous. That and training. One does not “go out for a quick spin/jog” in Nigeria. One either runs with a pack, or on a treadmill. My coach said, “Heck go…just do tons of air squats” He also stated, hey maybe everything will totally heal up if you can’t train much. Ha ha ha.
So just waiting on the final decision. Then I will either spring into action, or softly relax back into my very softy American lifestyle….
