Ok, so we have some catching up to do (again)...
For me, I'm able to report on a couple of good races that I've had these last couple of months! I signed up for the longer version of the Barkin' Dog Duathlon this year, and beat my goal time by 11 minutes!! I was worried because work had been really crazy before the race, and I wasn't training as much as I should have... But my results were so much better than I expected.
And just this past Monday, I beat my Bolder Boulder 10K goal time by 4 1/2 minutes!
Other than the racing, these last 8 weeks have been crazy busy. There was a six week waiting period for paperwork to finally go through on the house, but we are finally getting under way. I am training new person number next at work, and it is going VERY slowly, but my managers have officially said they will take over as of this past Wednesday. My workout training schedule has gotten harder, but I'm seeing big improvements and results in my swim, bike and run. I took on a new big project at work, but the first portion is completed and we are now booked to travel to Mexico to complete the next part at the end of June. My annual review wasn't as good as I was hoping this year, but it is allowing me to re-evaluate my work/life balance, and I'm finding my stress levels to be much lower these days. My desk is clean, the apartment has been cleared out and unwanted items have been donated, laundry is actually in the hamper for once, and all of the dishes are done.
I think it might be time to stop running around for a day and just enjoy the wonderful company of my husband and the gorgeous weather.
