I know when you are working late, stressed, and feeling really tired from work it seems like a crazy idea to get up at 4:20 in the morning to fit your run in. I have to say doing that makes a huge difference. I can tell I am calmer and being calmer helps you diffuse tense situations better, so no matter who is losing their mind, so far I have been able to hang on to mine, though just barely. I do admit that around 11 AM and a stream of name calling customers I did walk out of my office and announce "I would just like to talk to one person who thanks us for providing clean drinking water and safe sanitation." That was mostly blowing off steam. The toll the week took on me was less than usual and I credit a commitment to sticking with my plan to run. Confession time: strength training flew out the window and was hit by a bus this week. Oh well reset and try again! Hoping that the updated forecast predicting our 4th rainy weekend in a row is wrong. I really want to do a long run with the hubby this weekend! Fingers crossed for good weather and a calmer week.
