Whew...I am exhausted. I forget how much I enjoy getting to bed early and getting a full night of sleep until I have two nights in a row where I don't get to bed until 11 or later. Then I remember how much I love my sleep!!
Well, yesterday was one of those Mondays where I felt like I was barely keeping ahead and didn't get anything accomplished. I was put on two more projects yesterday. The commissioners of my agency are voting on a case today and depending on how the vote goes, our entire division may be put the case and it would have some very tight deadlines. Seriously, this is the busiest I've ever been at my job and I've been here for almost three years. I have 4 projects going on right now so trying to split up my day among them is difficult. Add people popping in to check on "their" project or wanting to chat about "their" project and all I did yesterday was go back and forth between projects without really getting anything done. :( I hate that. I started something yesterday at 8 am and I didn't finish it until almost 5 pm because of all these little interruptions. I want to tell people when they're checking on a project, "If you'll leave me alone and actually let me work on something without interrupting me, I'll have your project to you 15 times faster." But I can't really say anything.
Anyways, enough about work. I went for my run yesterday and did 5.5 miles. My muscles were so tired though, I only ran 3/4 and walked the rest. Last night's softball game went well. We didn't win but we only lost by a couple of runs, so much better than I was expecting. But I got hit with a hard, fast softball. Luckily, it hit my calf muscle (pretty close to my shin) but today it's all bruised and very sore. I did ice it last night for about 15 minutes but it's still pretty sore today. So I made an executive decision today and I'm going to take a rest from running. I'll probably go for a walk just to keep the blood flowing but I'm not going to change into my running stuff. I'll just put on my sneakers. (If I change into my running shorts, bra, etc. then I'll run...I'll say "Oh, I'm only going to walk" but once I get started I'll change my mind and decide to run but if I don't change into my clothes, I won't run because I don't want my boobies flopping all over.) I do need a rest/lighter day today. With practice on Sunday, my lunch time run yesterday, and the game last night, I've had 3 workouts within 24 hours and I haven't had my usual amount of sleep...my muscles just need a break. I'm going on and on about this because I'm trying to tell myself that it's okay if I don't run today. Yes, the weather is nice but I can still enjoy it on my walk...I don't have to be running. Besides the nice fist sized black and blue knot on my calf muscle is a great sign that I need to take it easy on my legs today. Okay, I think I've talked myself into it...
On a bit of digression here, I'm super frustrated that the weather is finally warm enough to wear a skirt to work without hose and I have a massive bruise on my lower leg that a skirt won't cover up. Yep, I'm wearing pants today.
Alright, I promise to comment today. With yesterday's madness, I didn't get to but today I will!! Have a great Tuesday everyone!
