I got the news yesterday that one of the things I was working on at work needed to be my number 1 priority - and that we were going to do what it takes to make the deadline. So I "saluted" smartly and set off to make it happen, adjusting my other activities.
Today I got the news that the other thing I was working on is my number 1 priority - and that we had to do what it takes to get this completed for the deadline. So I "saluted" smartly as I headed home to figure out what we need to do to make it happen on time.
Understanding, of course, that when the second one became number 1, the first one is still number 1.
Don't you love it when that happens?
At that point, you let the managers you work for fight it out....and meanwhile try to do both items.
Well, that called for a nice easy long run. I got home today and wanted to just get out and do a few miles nice and easy. In fact, my goal was to keep my heart rate at an aerobic pace and see how far I could go without a walking break. About 4.25 miles later I took a break to talk with another neighborhood runner I had not seen in quite some time and we walked together for about .25 mile catching up. She was walking her dog and doing her warm up walking. It was nice catching up. I sprinted the last .35 mile home for a total of 5 miles and 1:00:44. Average heart rate was 158 bpm.
That was a great run! I was nice and relaxed. Afterwards the family went out for a bite at a new Outback Steakhouse that opened about 3 miles from our house. And now I need to go to bed, as soon as I spend some time on my number 1 task(s).
Computer update: Still no computer :-(
Foot update: Foot did fine for run today. We will see how it feels tomorrow. I am planning a couple of miles with my daughter again.
Hope all is well out there!!! Live strong!
