Where Has The Past 2 Weeks Gone?

I wish I had some kind of a good story about where I've been the last 2 weeks, but the truth is so boring, you'd probably all spontaneously combust upon reading it. So instead of describing my boring ass job in detail, let's leave it at this: Lots of work and work events, a little bit of running here and there, and that's about it. The good news is that things should finally slow down for me at work during the next month or so (fingers crossed!). And also? I managed to not quit despite one HELL of a torturous filing the other day. That's always a good thing. So things are looking up . . . I think.

In other news, I am officially back in training for the Chicago Marathon! I'm pretty pumped about it, despite the fact that this first week just didn't go well at all. I was SO totally wiped and constantly crunched for time that I barely managed to get in my two mid-week key runs at all, and both were cut short . . . the first because I was so exhausted I could barely move (boo), and thus figured my time would be better spent catching up on sleep than dragging ass through another couple sets of intervals; and the second because I had to return to work and was a bit short on time. Still, I was happy to have squeezed what I did in considering how busy I was.

I'm looking at next week as a new week, and am spending the rest of this weekend resting up and recovering from the past couple weeks of hellish work. Ha, of course, because I'm in training, this weekend's R&R will include a long run of somewhere between 13-15 miles. But still, I got 10 hours of sleep last night and took a 2.5 hour nap earlier this afternoon . . . the focus is on resting, I promise! :)

Hope you all have wonderful weekends! I'll be catching up on your awesome blogs soon, I promise!

Hey "Irish!" I've missed you. Glad to see that you're finally getting some rest. Chicago Marathon, huh? Sounds like a good one to me. When is it??

Yay, you're back! Missed you around these parts. Wow...can't believe you're already deeper into marathon training than I am. Didn't you just run one a month ago?

Us mere mortals have a lot of catching up to do...

Welcome back!
Great work on fighting back despite the boredom of work.
Congrats on beginning training for the Chicago marathon.
Have a great long run and do take time to rest. You don't want to crash halfway a long run.

Have a great weekend!

i echo lam... i swear you just ran out in seattle!

here's hoping that stupid work moves on aside and makes room for the important things, like running :) hopefully the extra (forced) time off from running will pay off!
