This week was a super busy one in running and at work. Since it was my final week at work, I put in lots of extra time finishing up some final projects and I’m happy to say my final few days were pretty stress free.

Yesterday, I started my new job! I’m so excited because it is exactly what I really want to do. Another perk of the job is that I mostly work Monday thru Friday… what?! I don’t know what it’s like to have Saturdays and/or Sundays off if I haven’t requested it off. This will also be super helpful with my running… no more worrying about getting enough sleep to get up early for a morning run. I cannot wait!!

With that being said, I’m still figuring out my next half marathon. I want to do the Healthy Human Race, but realistically I’ll be fully trained by Minnesota Half time. If I do the Minnesota Half, I might be able to squeeze in another race in September 🙂 We’ll see!!

This upcoming week will be challenging again too as my miles pick up but my new job really picks up too!! Hopefully I’ll be able to fit in a cross training session this week too with my new fitness membership at my new job!

  1. Congrats on the new job! Glad it’s going well so far, and that you’re getting to do something you enjoy. Having weekends to yourself will definitely play a big role in your training — I always wondered how people who worked weekends fit in those long runs!

    • Yes, finding time to do long runs when you work the weekends is next to impossible. What I would usually do was do my long run, go home shower, hopefully get a nap in (sometimes…most of the time not), and then go to work usually from 8-12 hours. It was horrible!! So happy not to have to deal with late nights and drunks anymore 🙂

  2. Can’t wait to hear more about the new job. And yay for having Saturday and Thursday off!
