I survived my fourth week training two new managers. The changes are all positive, just takes a lot of my time and energy to make sure they all happen smoothly. I had a couple customer meetings too. I think (and hope) they are feeling a more open line of communication which is always a good thing.
I have also had my nose in books and on the computer for my class at school. I will be done May 9 - Yayyyy! I am now working on my rough draft for my final paper, then will work on my power point for class. I love power point because it is so "artsy" - but it ends up being very time consuming. When my class is done, I plan on going back to my Wednesday night SparkLive meetings with Lauren. I really miss those, they help to keep me focused.
I did take today off work; I needed a break. I slept in then took a nice, leisurely 4 1/2 mile run around the development. I have been reading Jeff Galloway's training book and running magazine articles. They all suggest that nice slow runs are a great tool when training for races. Tomorrow I am running my second 5K of the season, so that will be my speed run for the week.
The Delaware Marathon is on Mother's day. I am on a relay team and will be running a 10K. It will be my first one. My goal is to run it in under 55 minutes. I think my training has been on target. The weather has been so nice that I have only had to use my treadmill once.
Well, I am going to go back to working on my paper. I hope you have a relaxing weekend!
