Okay, I promise I’ll be back with my weekly sweat report next week, but there wasn’t much sweating going on last week so I really have nothing to report except a few pretty awesome highlights.
Tuesday was a (mostly) fun day. After the dentist (the not so fun part), I popped into my local running shop to see if they were carrying the new Hokas so I could try them out. Sadly, they will not be carrying them but the salesperson did let me know that Monday’s run will be sponsored by Hoka and the rep will have them to try out. Meanwhile, Tyler went to the bike shop next door to browse and found a used 2005 Cervelo P2K tri bike for sale and it happened to be in my size and in excellent condition. A test ride around the parking lot later, it was headed home on the bike rack on our car. More on the bike soon!
Tuesday night we headed to Richmond to see A Q&A with Ina Garten! I just love her cooking and she is such a brilliant woman. Hearing how she went from a career that was sucking the life out her to where she is today is just amazing-talk about following your dreams! If she is in your area (even if you don’t watch her cooking show) I highly recommend seeing the show-very inspiring and she’s so down to earth.
Friday was my last day at the job that was sucking the life out of me. This is part of the reason why there wasn’t much working out going on this week because I had to make sure all of my work was done before Friday. A few years ago I decided I did not want to continue in nursing. It’s a great career, but it’s just not for me and I feel that this is the type of career you have to be passionate about–the patients can tell. I was pretty good at faking it until earlier this year then I realized it was really wearing me down. I’ve stuck with it because I wasn’t certain about what I would do. After doing some research and brainstorming, I am actually really interested in business/marketing. With Tyler finishing school in May, I decided it was time to take full time classes instead of taking one class per semester like I have been doing so I can officially make the career change!
Finally, the week ended with the Smithfield Sprint Triathlon and I crushed my time goals in some pretty crappy weather, more in a race recap soon!
How was your week?
