A change in plans may be in order


I'm supposed to be about two months into marathon training.  I'm securely NOT two months into marathon training.  Time-wise...yes.  Mileage-wise...definitely no.

I ran once this week while out here on business in California on the night that I had the time and energy after work and felt recovered enough from the cold I've been fighting off.

I say again, So.

I'm beginning to think that I'll have to start looking for a 4 month marathon training plan instead of a 6 month one.  Because I've kind of blown the first 2 months already.

Anyone out there ever been in my shoes?

Still here...and there...

Been enjoying the spring running, biking, and now the weekly kickball league.  When I can get it, that is.  With two weeks of travel and one week of a nasty cold this month, I have felt much less active than I would like to be.  But summer is coming, my tomato plants are getting sunned on, and my grill has been in use.  I love it!

I'm heading out to California again next week, but I'm training the customers this time, so I hope I'll get a few more hours of daytime to take care of myself this trip.  Like buying some groceries and going for runs.  Ahh, that would be wonderful!  I don't ask for much.

Also, the candidate for my old position at my job accepted our offer, so she'll be starting the day I return to the office.  Woo hoo!  My transition into project coordination/management continues!  I moved my cubicle today from the front desk to the engineering area.  It felt wierd but great.

Oh, yah...the hubby is in the process of getting hired into a new job, too.  Onward and upward!

I'm so excited to be home from my business trip.  This is my first full day back, and some friends and I went down to Yankee Springs for a great mountain bike ride.  Even though I felt low on energy - I'm still recovering from 140 hours in the past two weeks - it felt so good to be moving.  I love riding through the Michigan woods, burning up a tough hill, soaking in the sun.

I still need to sit down and figure out how to catch up on my marathon training, but I'll start with a nice long run tomorrow.  The hubby volunteered to bike along with me to keep me company.  How can I turn that down? :)

Warehouse Cargo Bikes

Cargo bikes in the warehouse where my company is installing a sortation system.  I really, really, really want to ride the pink one around the facility!
