Blogging literally as I’m on the road while my boss drives. It’s been a crazy day and a half with three more to go before I’m back home. My boss wasn’t kidding when she said I would hit the ground running. She actually joked that she had the next 3 months planned out for me, and looking at the planner I got as a welcome aboard gift, it’s probably not far from the truth. Lots of acronyms, meetings, miles and learning dozens of names. It’s overwhelming and exhausting, but it’s also exciting and seemingly a fantastic fit. Plus they’re equally excited to have me, which makes it enjoyable.
Given the long day, I was half tempted to skip my morning workout. I ended up hitting the snooze button a bit longer then I should have, but I did manage to make it to the hotel gym, knowing full well I wouldn’t want to workout after a 12 hour day.
I’m so glad I decided to workout this morning, though. What to my wondering eyes should appear when I entered the gym but a bike! I hopped on for a quick 2 mile ride before getting on the treadmill. With limited time to workout (dang snooze button) I thought about just biking sinve I haven’t been able to in the past few weeks, but I promised the middle sister I’d jog at least a little each day for Juneathon to grow into it. Surprising I did a half mile jog without dying or breaking to walk! It was really fantastic. I almost didn’t want to get off (although treadmill running isn’t as fun) but duty called. Maybe there’s a runner in me after all!
