But to be honest, this one is really more accurate:
This week has not been a good one for my running. I have been swamped at work and school and have not had a single free moment to get in any runs. This is definitely discouraging, but at the same time, I kept telling myself that if I could just survive this week, I might just have a chance of surviving my life.
The good news is, I made it! I had a project go live today and all things considered, it went pretty well. I still have some issues to clean up and discovered some new risks, but all things considered I think it was a success. And now it is officially my weekend! 🙂
I love the feeling of drinking from the fire hose that I tend to get as a project manager, running around making sure everything is getting done and putting out little fires is a challenge that makes me feel really energized, I love the thrill of troubleshooting technical problems and being able to determine the root cause and resolve the issue.
After all of the excitement dies down though, that is when the real exhaustion tends to hit home. I have had a lot of sleepless nights this week, unable to stop my brain from making lists and mentally checking off boxes, so now that I am into the coasting downhill phase, I am starting to get very sleepy.
Glad I have a three-day weekend to catch up on sleep, get my life back on track and most importantly, get back on the running wagon. My next run is the Run or Dye 5k on April 26th in Reno, so it’s time to get my butt in gear!
Will you be joining me on the 26th? Post a comment so I can keep an eye out for you! 🙂
