Running Update

June 29, 2009

Apparently it’s been weeks since I posted. It never feels like it because I’m in the running log and checking my life achievements list almost every day of the week.

I’m into week 4 of my running now. I’m happy to be sticking with it so far, but kind of dissapointed at how slowly it goes. Sadly I think I’m only at about a week 3 equivalent on the couch to 5k plan. I was stupid and ran against mike last weekend without much warmup and hurted my quads pretty good. My new shoes are awesome, I wasn’t even aware of them after I started jogging, which was exactly what I was going for. Worth every penny, so long as they don’t rip right away (I’m not completely convinced the mesh will hold up). Running is definitely one of the 2 things keeping me sane between work and house shopping.

The other of course being Mike and Sonja (and for a short time, Seth), who I got to visit again over the weekend, which is always the highlight of my sad little week. Back to work today, and 10 hours will probably be a good guess by the time it’s all said and done. I spent most of the day yelling at people (nicely, in e-mails) instead of doing the work I wanted (and needed) to do.

I guess I’m probably going to head home over the 4th, since it seems to be more of a family holiday for everyone this year, and I didn’t get home over easter. Enough rambling for now, I need to make supper yet and finish working.

Ding 70

June 21, 2009

No I’m not playing any kind of RPG, that’s 70 hours worked this week. Over 50 average for the past 10 weeks, which includes the 2 weeks I had bronchitis/pneumonia (I used a grand total of 9 sick hours combined for those 2 weeks). Only maybe 5 more weeks of overtime left max. Any more than that is pretty unlikely, though somewhere in there Kendra is going to have a baby leaving me in charge of the department for a week or more again.

On happier news, I’ve made it through 2 weeks of running hitting my goal of 4 runs per week! The next 2 weeks will be important as I attempt to transition from walking most of the time into jogging most of the time. It’s getting easier to go out there now, even though the weather, bugs, and work all make it harder.  I do need to be careful though, burned myself some today. Running in the morning when the bugs are bogged down in dew and before the sun gets high is probably my best bet, sadly.

Where should we go in August? The renfest obviously, but where else? At some point I want to go visit moogle and go to the zoo and visit the naval mueseum thing and if I’m lucky wander around a real game development studio for a little bit, but that may have to wait for later in the year… like when there’s snow on the ground ><.

The Grudge List

June 13, 2009

Today is the 6 week anniversary of the (true) creation of the grudge list.

I thought it would be appropriate to not get you anything on this special day Sonja.

Congrats Seth and Sharla, we love you both with extreme prejudice and hope this weekend was but one awesome stop on a legendary journey.
