This week can just get over! I am really feeling like when it rains, it pours!
It has been one crappy week! It is race week and I should be looking forward to the TC 10 Mile that I have trained so hard for. However, I haven’t even really thought about the race itself this week.
I have had one thing after another go awry at work this week. First what I thought was going to be built in this upcoming release some how ended not being on the plan, then I wasn’t even notified of a huge change on another project and then found out be accident, and finally the key developer on one of the products I am working on gave his notice that he is leaving the company.
That is enough for me! But then add this whole Black Lives Matter protest of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon to the list and this week as been over the top. No I am not running the full marathon but I am running the TC 10 Mile. And you see, I am in corral four, the last corral and I am not sure what time that means I will go off. I believe it will take me 2-2:15 to complete, so depending on when I leave my corral I could be just in time for the protest. Or hopefully, just crossing the finish line (I keep telling myself to thing this way)…
All of the above mention stuff has lead me to emotionally eat this week. And that isn’t making me feel any better (I really never thought it would), in fact I feel worse because I know it could really impact how I feel on race morning.
But now it is time to build my bridge and get over it! I have had not control over what has happen at work and have no control over what is going to happen with the protest, just how I handle it. And because of that, I have decided I can only run the race that is put in front of me Sunday morning. If that means I run all 10 miles that will be awesome but if that means I only run 9 miles (the protest is planned to take place at mile 9 of the TC 10 or 25 of the marathon) then I did what I could do!
Okay, this is a much better mindset! Thanks for listening! ;o)
