My job is finished, for now. I go back in next week for training on some new equipment, but that's just to keep me up to speed when I do go back in again. This time back at work was a little more complicated than the last time. There was so much back work that needed to be finished. I'm glad I was able to pitch in and help everyone play "catch-up."
One of my coworkers brought in a little "gift" for me. In case you didn't know already, my name at work (and e-mail, on line, etc...) is "Eyeballrene," "Eyeball" for short. I do believe I've explained that everyone in the office has nick-names. I don't know how it got started, but we all have crazy nick names. Even our patients know our nick names and some of them were bestowed nick names... Yes, it's a unique work place. One of my coworkers came up with mine. Irene = Eye (ball) rene... Any way... Another coworker "GG" or "Ghoulie Girl" brought a bottle of beer called "Lagunitas - The Hairy Eyeball Ale." Teehee... My name's all over it. I haven't opened the bottle, yet, it has to get nice and cold first, then maybe on a free meal, I'll pop that bottle open. I sure hope it's good.
I have a date with the road tomorrow morning. It's supposed to get warm out (90 degrees) tomorrow, so I'm thinking I'll get out early, while it's still cool, and do my 2.5 miler around the neighborhood, hills and all. I've noticed I do better on my LSD runs when I get my shorter runs in during the week. If I miss the shorter runs, the LSD runs seem harder than they need to be. I also need to pay closer attention to my nutrition. The past couple of weeks have been kinda carb heavy and I need to amp up the protein ratio. My weight is okay but I could stand to feel less fluffy. I'm kinda going through the transition between weight training and running again. I always get fluffy at this time. I guess getting fluffy is a given, I just need to find a balance so that I don't feel as fluffy...
