I know you have all been on the edge of your seats all weekend waiting on my decision ...First thank you to everyone who commented, I think I already knew my answer but it really helps to know how others survived and made the choice. In September I will be going back to work full-time! Yikes, I am excited but nervous at the same time. When I was called with the offer I just felt a sense of calm and happiness, it just seemed right and where I needed to go. This was also the first time in my career life that I've negotiated and it was successful! Like I said I get the rest of the summer off as I go through the credentialing process before I can begin work, so I working down our summer fun list and enjoying the time with O.
Beach & Playground
Races/Running with Friends
Family Bike Rides (of course with ice cream stops)
Drinking Wine on the Deck
Making Popsicles & Ice Cream
and of course Marathon Training
Nothing too exciting but the things I love about summer. What's on you summer list? This week is the craziest week of the summer (all year for that matter). Last night was a 4 1/2 hour dance rehearsal where O had all the energy in the world between dances but was that kid on stage doing her own thing (not surprised!). But what was she doing...yoga! There she was in the middle of her tap dance ironically with her stuffed puppy doing down dog. She loves to dance but like everything else it has to be on her time so I'm a little worried about what will occur on Friday! Oh well at least she is 3 and still at the age where this is cute.
I am also considering a 5K trail race tomorrow for fun. But this answer will wait until after my appointment this afternoon with my sports chiro. While the hamstring/piriformis is improving I had to cut my first run short in a long time. On Sunday I quit after just 1 1/2 miles thanks to pain, I finished my workout with 18 Miles on the bike reminding me how sore I get the first time out on the bike. I was able to run yesterday and did an easy run/walk to and from the playground about 7 Miles followed by another 2 Mile walk to retrieve a lost shoe. I'm hoping this was just one bad run thanks to a hilly run Saturday. I will get another ART treatment and we're making a plan for the rest of summer training to get me back. This week marks the start of Marathon Training: 16 weeks until Milwaukee! So I need to get back plus summer has finally arrived and I need to get out to enjoy it.
