Wow, it looks like my updates are getting a little scarce. I feel like I am writing this in every update, but of course things are stupidly busy as usual and I have no time to do anything!
But I got to do something fun for work yesterday - entertaining a few of our customers at the Oilers hockey game! My role is going to be expanding a bit at work and now I am getting to be involved in more marketing. So yesterday after work I took 3 people out for dinner/drinks and to the Oilers v. Canadiens game on the company dime! Fun times!
The hockey game was fun - I hadn't been to a game in about 6 years and the Oilers ended up creaming Montreal, 7-2. It was a late game and didn't start till 8pm, so it was definitely a long day for me but fun! I got home at about 11:15pm which is late for me but I was in bed by 11:45pm! And I got my torture run interval workout done early before work so I didn't miss a workout.
However, I did opt out of my ez 40 min run today after work, figuring I was better served by resting instead due to how tired I was/am feeling. I will swim tonight after coaching and then get up at 6:15am tomorrow to fit the ez run in.
I can't wait for the week to be over - on Saturday Geoff and I are flying to Vancouver, and he will be racing the First Half (1/2 marathon) on Sunday morning. I am very glad I will be a cheering spectator and not a racer, as I am not quite ready for a half right now. But hopefully in 2 weeks I will feel ready as I am racing the Hypothermic Half in Edmonton on March 1! In Vancouver, we might get to meet up with my coach (Mark Bates) as he lives there. It will be a short little visit in Van, as we will hop the ferry to Victoria on Sunday afternoon and then spend 2 nights in Victoria staying with my good friend Jadeen. Monday is a holiday from work and I am missing Tuesday so 4-day weekend!!
