37 miles total
6 days running / 1 day off
1 lifting session / 5+ days of PT exercises
4 days in Plano, TX
2 days in San Diego, CA
Now that my work project is really picking up, I am in complete awe of Sarah Cummings, who managed to run 100+ mile weeks while working at Goldman Sachs and now at Blackrock. I'm not even working as many hours as Sarah typically does and I'm completely wiped out. At the office in Texas, I'm constantly at my laptop, furiously testing features and walking back and forth between the tech and testing teams. It's nonstop, and I love it. But it's definitely hard to find the motivation to workout, mostly because the running routes absolutely suck. In Plano, you're either running through a concrete jungle in a corporate park, sliding through horse manure on grass alongside a busy highway, or dodging cars while running on the shoulder of a road.
Despite the unfortunate hazards associated with running in this poorly planned town, I did managed to get in a workout of 2 x 2 miles on a windy Wednesday. I hit faster times than I was expecting, especially for being solo, which left me feeling confident that I'm on a road to recovery and will get into shape rather quickly.
I was bummed that I only got to get in one lifting session this week, but it was just the nature of the beast. With a crazy work week, and just one day at home before flying back out to San Diego for fun, I'll take it. Right now, my biggest thing is not gaining weight because I definitely ate out for basically 2 meals a day for practically this entire week. SIGH!
