Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review.
This past week was kind of a repeat of the week before. I worked a lot: 13 hours on Monday, 3 hours on Tuesday, 14 hours on Wednesday, and 13.5 hours on Friday. I also started training someone on Wednesday. Someone who already has experience to take over my bay of patients, so I can focus mainly on administrative stuff. She’s great, and I think she’ll be a good fit for the team.
School stuff, including writing and filming two (fake/practice) broadcasts, one related to the Florida school shooting in February, and one related to the car crash/missing children case in California. What I learned: I should probably watch the news occasionally, and I’m super uncomfortable in front of the camera.
I saw Ready Player One, and loved it, although I hear it’s very different from the book.
I got in four workouts, although one of them was only a quick one mile on the treadmill. I did 45 minutes on the treadmill on Thursday. Saturday, the temperature dropped 50 degrees overnight, it was windy, trying to mist, and we had 10 miles on the agenda.
Can I tell you how miserable this was? We did 8.5 miles before it started to rain and we called it quits. It took a 10-minute hot shower, bundling up in layers + fuzzy boots, hot tea, and a good hour to warm up. It was so cold I looked sunburned. I did see some of my second-favorite flowers, though.
Sunday, the BFF and I met our friend who’s hiking the Grand Canyon with us in October in Fort Worth at the Botanical Gardens for 5 miles and a planning session. Still cold, but no wind, so it was much better.
Walking along the Trinity River, we saw a coyote, which was a little unnerving, because 1) he wasn’t at all scared and kept pace with us for a bit, and 2) we were maybe a mile from downtown Fort Worth, so what was a coyote even doing there? Much less one totally unafraid of us? All I could think was rabies. Baby Brother used to work for animal control, so I know it happens, especially in skunks around here.
After our walk, we enjoyed some Cajun seafood at Pappadeux, and I had a Bloody Mary. Yum.
That’s it for this week.
