So I wake up at 5.05 am. Normal time. Feel like crap. Reset alarm for 5.30. Still feel bad. Decide I need to go to work, since it's payweek, and I need to process time cards. Decide to bail after 11.30 meeting.
You know where this is going, right?
8.05 am. Phone call. Inspectors in the hospital. Stand by for inspection.
No bailing out of work early today. In fact, a late day. Glad I had already decided on no workout.
Tomorrow, inspectors back again. So I will stick with original workout schedule of 4 miles, either tread or elliptical--at least 4 miles is easy to get in.
On a brighter, workout note, more summer plans had solidified. I am working the aid station that the NEO Trails Club has sponsored, at mile 65 on the BR Course. This is also where the first pacers are allowed, so this is where Mike will fall into my capable hands, and I will pace him to victory in the Burning River Race~~!!
Mike is also going to pace me at Mohican this year. We'll have some talking to do, to get both plans together. I think this will work out well, despite the fact that we are both newbies to this whole 100 mile race concept. One, we're both very positive; Two, we already like and get along together; Three, we both have good sense of humor; 4: back to items one, two and three. To me, attitude is so important. At Mohican last year, whenever someone asked how I was, my reply was "Great. I feel good!" And that helps. I think when you replying about how this and that hurts, the more you focus on it. Reg and Di have a plaque that I have always liked, it says "Attitude is everything". That is so true. You do truly "bring your own weather with you". It's funny, since I have started trail running, I don't have many negative runs, not like when I ran on roads. I just like being out in the woods so much, time on the trails is not so important, it's the experiences I soak up while out on the trails.
