This has not been a ‘Summer to remember’ in the Evolving family world. Abundant stress and pressure in our professional lives has spilled over into our personal lives, and it’s just not much fun. Just do a Google search on ‘Biggest layoffs IT’, and you’ll see the main source of stress. I’m averaging about 4 hours of sleep a night, and my family is going on our beach vacation next week without me. And still … I run.
Training is going very well ... a nice oasis of something I can control in a boiling sea of things which largely force me to react. My usual repertoire of injuries is mostly contained, and I’m in a nice groove where I’m disappointed and antsy when the plan tells me not to run. Currently in the middle of week 3, and week 4 kicks off with a 14-mile long run that I’ll be tackling at my new hilly running destination that I’ve come to love/hate. Looking forward to sweating out some worry.
I’ve been horribly out of the loop with blogging, both in terms of reading and posting, so I hope all is going well with all my virtual friends. Hopefully some sanity will creep back into my world soon. Until then, I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.
