Weight I have lost

Thursday, March 4, 2010


I got 4 flush emails today; 3 from jobs I actually applied to. I also got a phone interview moved to a different time tomorrow.
It was scheduled for the afternoon, but I have to drive North, and would prefer not to wait until after 3pm to leave.

So my running scheduled is all smooshed together right now. I ran my 7 on Saturday. Then Monday, I ran 4.5, slowly. It was ok. I ran the last .7 next to a guy in short white shorts, a tight shiny purple tank, and a Gigli ball cap. Now the outfit wasn't that outlandish for my gym. But the Gigli cap? And it was bedazzled. Who saw Gigli let alone has a cap? So it made me laugh. The techno music in the gym was blaring, and the guy caught me looking at him in the mirror. So he danced on the treadmill.

Tuesday, I ran 3 miles the fastest on the treadmill yet...38:19. This seemed really great until I went to dinner with my friend, my other friend and her co-workers. Oh my, my legs were mad. Food-wise I didn't do badly, and one of the co-workers picked up the bill, unexpectedly.
Also recruiter said company liked my credentials so a phone interview is being set up.

Wednesday, my thighs killed. So another 4.5 miles. Nothing exciting at the gym. Me running at 4.3 mph. I couldn't go faster. I tried. Nope, wasn't going to happen. Finally finished. I was still faster than Monday.

Today is the Burn Notice Marathon, applying to jobs and making dog cookies.
Also pack for my dad's, a viewing, a funeral, and 2 car trips. And dread that 8 mile run tomorrow. I don't know which I'm dreading more...the interview or the run. (Interviews make me nervous, no matter how qualified I am).

Hopefully no more flushes today.

Interview them, it's your job to have, interview them, are they good enough for YOU?

Nice running, though. You're rocking it.

I read this earlier in the week, but couldn't comment because I was reading on my iPhone, but the Gigli cap made me snort.

Sucks about the interviews. Hang in there. You're a genius. Something will come through for you.

Hope the interview AND the run were wonderful. I think the guy in the bedazzled Gigli hat actually lives in my neiborhood...
