The Heinz 57 Post: A Little Bit of Everything

The group coach emailed me back today in response to what I sent her last night and she was very apologetic and took full responsibility for my getting left behind. She assured me that if I returned, it wouldn't happen again.

I tossed and turned last night in bed and couldn't fall asleep partially because of my email last night to her. I worried that I was being too critical and, perhaps, arrogant, but at the same time, I feel that I have to be firm and assertive in my running needs and goals within this group (and, as was mentioned, I am paying for it), and the group markets itself as accomodating all levels of training and running, so it should be able to accomodate me. So, thanks for all your comments re-assuring me that my response was appropriate in tone and content. That made me feel better this morning.

And the coach's response today was warm and I think she will address my concerns in future long runs, so I think the experience will improve.

But...I also couldn't sleep because I was thinking about everything I had to do today (because, yes, I blew off chores yesterday and went to see Harry Potter -- luh-ved it!). As I mentioned, I have company coming tomorrow (my stepmom and sister) and I want to get some stuff done around the house (like wash the guest bedroom window -- Scooter's snoot snot is all over it -- and wash the guest bedding); plus, I have a shitload of papers to read (and because I am a Muggle, I have no magic way of making them read themselves), and I have to run tonight. Thinking of that long list, and cursing myself for being lazy all weekend (though I wasn't too hard on myself; I believe that I deserve a certain amount of laziness on the weekend), I found sleep difficult last night.

The result? I'm tuckered out today. And what am doing that is not on my "to-do" list? That's right. Blogging. So, I'd best toddle off and get to work!

Rest up, Jess. Enjoy it while you can.

Ah, your list is probably no where as long as mine so you should be fine. I am sure Lexi will be impressed with the house even if there is a little snoot snot on the window. It looks fabulous.

Put Jerry to work-I hear his stupid showerhead excuse is lame. According to Mr. Fixit at the Froyd household, it's only an hour project ;)

I've got a magic trick for reading papers, it's called randomly assigning one of four letters for each paper and moving to the next spot.

I'm glad that the running group leader was sympathetic and responsive. I'm feeling very much like you are: Too much to do and no desire to do it!
