Running Again

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

I picked up running again. Not following C25K or anything, just running until I get tired and try to run longer the next day. I made it half a mile yesterday before I got winded and today I'm not sore at all which means it's just my cardio that's gotten down. Eating soups and trying to reduce alcohol intake as well. Baby steps.

I'm meeting a friend tonight for dinner at some Thai place. I've never eaten Thai before but I don't really care. It bothers me that I don't have friends. There's no support for me besides my husband and my therapist. I got drunk this past weekend and posted something about Gravity being a terrible movie and she responded. I haven't seen her since 6th grade! Then I realize that she moved back here to my city so I said we should get dinner and catch up. I also got back in touch with my matron of honor about getting together this Sunday.

I'm working on my life one baby step at a time.

The thing that is bothering me is people at work are constantly saying I'm too quiet. I'm not quiet, I just don't go around aimlessly blathering on like some nitwit. Besides, an HR person should listen more than they talk. They don't even realize that maybe I don't really want to know them more than I have to. They aren't very interesting people, otherwise I would have. I don't really care about their babies and whatever else. Frustrating. If I wanted to get paid to listen to people's lives and problems, I would have gone into psychology. They certainly make more money.

    There are a lot of quiet people out there. I've learned to live with it more as I've got older but yes sometimes I have worried I didn't pick up enough friends because I didn't always fit norms. At 50 I find I have wonderful friends because I picked them up slowly and we made it work. It's give and take, kind of like marriage, but those people who always seem to have lots of friends don't always have any close ones. emoticon

    I feel like we have a lot in common. Hope the dinner renews a friendship, it sounds promising. Glad you found the motivation to run.
