If we were having coffee, tonight I’ll be drinking from the Keurig and trying to keep my eyes open long enough to finish the cup. Just ignore that big ‘ol yawn and fix a cup of whatever we have in the tray. Your choice.
March 6th was my last off day. We spent it driving home from Atlanta, where we had run the Spartan Race the previous day. Now, it is the 20th and still a day off is but a distant dream. I would expect at least a few more weeks of this, so to say that in looking forward to that off day, whenever it may come, is a bit of an understatement.
Really though, the work itself isn’t bad. There is all the drama and confusion and mix-ups and things that go generally wrong for whatever reason, but that’s normal to some extent. The drama does seem higher than normal, but that is to be expected when people are spending so much time together. There’s only so much we can take of one another after all!
All this work is really putting a damper on my training however. It’s tough to work 10 to 16 hours everyday and still find the energy to train. I’m not saying impossible, just tough. The only solace I take is that my job is somewhat physical. I walk a lot, including up and down stairs many trips a day, and have the opportunity to carry things while doing it. While it may not be a proper workout, at least I’m not sitting all day. So that’s something.
I hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by for coffee. (Or whatever that is in your cup there.) It’s about time to get some shut-eye for me, so I’m turning in. Feel free to fix another if you’d like. I regret my inability to have another with you, but as they say, “it is what it is.”
‘Til next time, God bless and have a great week!
