Today was my long-dreaded first day back at work. It wasn't so bad, once I got my "sea legs" back. I had plenty of work waiting for me on my desk when I got in. Some of it just needed a signature and could be moved on, but some of it required hours of calculations.
Well, hours today anyways. Most days I could have finished the math in minutes, but I was a little rusty today. And I felt like I needed a nap around 10:30. And at 1:30. And 3:00. But I made it. I'll even say I got quite a bit done.
So now I'm just trying to find a routine. Last week I rode my bike twice for a total of 2 hours and 25 minutes. I haven't run at all since the middle of July. My plan has been to take it easy for the summer, since I had an injured foot and a baby on the way. But it seems strange that just 9 months ago I was running an ultramarathon, and now I have my doubts over whether I could do a measley 13.1 miles in October.
Ultimately, I just want to stay fit until I have the time an energy to train for another big event. Maybe the 2010 Harrisburg marathon, maybe something else. If I can get my mountain bike skill up to snuff, maybe I'll try a mountain bike race - but first I need the extra time needed to practice on trails.
I guess the really hard part is getting out the door. If you had this at your house, would you ever want to leave?
