So what has Daisy been up to you might ask?
Well things have continued to remain super duper hectic! I suppose that is how many of the tri folk out there feel but lately this has just been much more so than normal for me!
My last day with my full time job is Thursday 8/31. Pretty much most of my firm will be let go then and at this point I am looking forward to getting away from what has become a poor work environment. Fortunately, the company has tried to do as much as possible with giving us a heads up that it was coming, time to interview, and a month's serverance. I have spent as much time as possible researching companies and lots of talking and meetings. Things are going well and I remain optimistic that something will work out here in the next month which is my goal.
Also I have been spending quite a bit of time at the hospital with my sis who is pregnant with twins and not technically due until 10/17. For a number of reasons her docs would like to keep her at the hospital until the babies are born (no clue when that may be but hopefully they can wait a little while longer for their sakes) so that they can closely monitor things. Clearly she is not happy about this but taking it in stride and at least she will have her older sis there even more often without having to work the next month!
Last weekend did a 10 mile race which went OK, not quite the speed of my 10 miler earlier in the season but I suppose my training is not where it was earlier in the season either. I have started to work on my marathon training. I am behind where I should be...but I felt good throughout my entire 15 mile run today, which was helped in large part to my company and our conversation. I am totally pysched that I will have much more time to put towards my training in the next month...so hopefully my shortcomings in the last few weeks will bounce back.
Anyway doing my first bi tomorrow and really looking forward to it and keeping my fingers crossed that everything else will work out!
