Week 45: Monterey Bay Half Prep

Upcoming Races-

  • Monterey Bay Half Marathon (Thank you BibRave!)- 11/12
  • Oakland Turkey Trot- (Thank you BibRave!) 11/22

Wow, this week was just nothing like I’d thought it’d be.

I was back in my office but work was chaos.  I came back to a new hire starting on Monday, a surprise announcement of an audit coming down the pipe and just general insane busy-ness.

Then I was still abnormally tired.  I was falling asleep in my chair watching TV.  I was falling asleep in the break room on my lunch. I did manage to complete a Liift4 workout once but I can’t remember it it was Monday or Tuesday. 😛

I kept meaning to run, I packed my bag every day but things kept happening.  Work kept running super late- people, my time card clocked in at over 105 hours.  Then when I set an alarm to run in the morning, it was below freezing.  I hadn’t brought out the winter running gear yet, wth?  I tried for a lunch run, thinking it was fall, temps should be fine- nah, work town hit 86*.   I don’t know about you but my hair wouldn’t recover from that for another 3-4 hours of work, let alone stressing about if I smelled.

So that brought me to race weekend.   I was doing race day pickup so I was hoping for a shakeout run on Saturday but catching up on other things just saw the time run away from me.   Plus I had an early wake up call (2AM!) so I needed to try and get everything together and then to sleep.

Then I received an email-

Wait, what?  Is this really happening?  I mean I get it but I was also kind of in denial.

Now what?

  1. Sad times. 😦 Sorry to hear that the race was cancelled, but at least you won’t inhale terribly polluted air. 🙂 I ran once in high school when there was a fire in my city and I got sick the following day. It was really bad. 😦
