One was a really fun department interview, where everyone sat in a circle and they each took turns asking me questions.
It was fun, except I had a massive headache, near migraine. I kept loosing my train of thought, or I couldn't think of something quick. So I eventually just started making up things since I couldn't think deep anymore, LOL (Normally I would never do that, but when in pain, just do whatever to get through it quick and get out!)
Later in the week, they offered the position. While I really liked the people and the job sounded pretty fun, in the end I decided to turn it down.
I did a little better with running and working out this week, but not great and it's my own fault really. My headache was so intense I could barely stand to keep my eyes open so I only ran 3 days.
To be completely honest, I am not adjusting getting back into running very well. I let stupid things get in the way, and take precedence, when normally I would never be that way.
Crazy as it sounds, I was talking to my mechanic while I was getting my registration done. He is also a marathon runner and has been for many years. Since he's trying to decide if he wants to make the comeback after his 2nd knee replacement. (yeah, he's a bit older.)
We got into talking and realized we had many commonalities in relation to the marathon.
I am an endurance distance runner, I would take a 16 mile run any day of the week over a 3 miler, in fact I do better the further I go. It takes my body 5-6 miles just to get into the run and begin to work out all the kinks and start enjoying it. I know so many people are build for different types of running, but for me having run various distances, this is one thing I know about myself.
Of course getting back into running now, obviously I can't jump right back into 16 milers. Well maybe I could try, but I might leave a lung or two on the road, LOL
Doing the 1-3 milers right now, are messing with my mind and I am just not enjoying the runs as much as should, I can't get into the "zone" and relax and enjoy. They are either over too soon, or over before the body starts adjusting. I hate that I can't force my mind to just pretend to like it all!
My mechanic who apparently is like me in his love for distance running, said because his wife is trying to push him into running 5K-10K's since his surgery. "When your built for distance running. It's hard to make others understand but there is just a different feeling/rush/love for it you get running a marathon than shorter races or distances."
Myself alone most the time it takes me until miles 12-16 to really just enjoy, relax and get that oh I love run this feeling, so all I did was agree and we had a great conversation about it since we both could totally relate.
Anyhow, I walked out of there that day, with more than a new sticker for my license plate. I realized, I am completely normal in not enjoying this short distance build up period, and that's okay!
I know all I have to do is keep on wanting it, and I'll get passed this part and onto the parts I will enjoy soon enough!
However on the subject of running, I did get my first evening run in, in what I swear has been over 6 years. I used to run evenings all the time, I've been a morning person for a long time. On the plus side, I didn't mind it as much as I thought. Just far too much traffic out and different people on the road and trails!
OH NO! On a bummer note, I apparently shouldn't of been driving one day because of the headache. I made a very stupid mistake and let's just say scrapped the entire undercarriage of my car up on one side. Not good!
I couldn't figure out what I was more mad about. That I hurt my car, or that I wasn't in a truck like I used to drive where this wouldn't of ever happened. Or that I had no one to be pissed at but myself, and I pulled one of those "super dumb" moments. Thankfully no witness, that I know of :)
I really prefer dumb mistake moments when I can put the blame on someone else, but then don't we all at times. LOL
On the weight loss front, I lost a pound early on in the week, and then gained 3 more towards the end. But I have ZERO worries about it. At the risk of giving you too much info lets just say it's the wrong time of the month to weigh myself and likely next week I will drop some big numbers, so I am looking forward to next week!
Those are a few bits and pieces about my week.
Have you ever had a dumb moment and done anything stupid driving your vehicle?
Do you have certain distances your body enjoys and prefers over others?
