Well, back up...Monday I went to the gym. Not to run, but to pay June's dues. I keep getting nasty emails when I'm late (I refuse to give them a credit card or my bank account number, so I just pay in cash). So I met the new gym manager. She is very nice and asked me if I wanted a printout of when billing happened (the emails are automated). I told her no, that was ok. I had been a member since 2007 and I wasn't going anywhere. I mean, hell, my Unemployment Money paid for the gym at one time (and I enjoyed their heat). She asked how long I was unemployed and why I chose to pay for the gym. I told her for the heat, because I didn't have money to spend on clothes for when I gained 30 pounds (like the first time) and for some socialization. She laughed and said she did the same thing. She seems like a cool gal.
So Tuesday, I was just in a foul mood. Some work stuff. Not really work but schedules...Why do people book you at 100% when you are on 4 projects that are happening simultaneously? I can't be 400%. And why is there no sign-off or review of schedules (actually there was, but no one thought that the manufacturer would delay one project by 3 months, one by 2, one by 1, and one by 1 week, thus all landing on top of each other). So that basically is my life for the next few weeks. Having PMs wanting to know why I haven't tested their project yet.
Back to Wednesday...being that it was National Running Day, I had to run, right? Yes, I did. I ran 5K at the gym. I didn't feel like looking at the mileage and for some reason, I constantly doubt how far I've gone when the odometer is in kilometers. So that's what I did. It was a little too fast but my legs kept at it. My HR was to high, so I had to walk some at the end. I'm really trying to listen to the heart by feel. I'm getting pretty good at it. I
My weight was stagnant over May and the beginning of June. I will take it. With the amount of beer I drank, which led to drunk eating, I'm really shocked I am staying the same. But I want to be smaller. So I may or may not know that yesterday a certain running series had a $20 coupon for when you sign up for 26.2.
