So I’m feeling much better this week. Not 100%, but I’ve been pretty happy with my runs and the fact that I’ve completed them. I know I’m not very fast, but I went from running 0 miles for 2 months to running 14 in 1 week without any issue. So that was really good. Today’s 3 mile run was really great. I have a 5 mile run tomorrow with intervals so that will be a bit rough.
I’ve been trained on a new task at work so I have new responsibilities, but I’m still not feeling fulfilled. And everywhere I look, everyone is getting jobs. I’ve slowed down in my applications so I need to get back to that, but I can’t help but be annoyed when I see people who are awful communicators and all together poor at their job getting better ones and raises. It just sucks. But complaining won’t get me anywhere. I need to be more proactive about my approach and spend more time writing cover letters instead of sitting on the couch.
As for eating better, we’re definitely working our way there. The more I exercise, the less crappy I want to eat. And I’ve been practically ravenous all week, which is awesome. We’ve slowed down a bit on our drinking too, which is good. It’s a slow process, but with longer runs and more training coming up, I know it’s going to slow down even more. But I’m glad that my long runs are on Saturdays so I can relax and have some beers on Saturday afternoon without feeling too guilty.
That’s all for now. There are weekly farmers markets on Tuesdays and Fridays and I’m going to try to make this a more common occurrence. Till next week!
