Change Is Good

PM: 12.2 Miles, Blvd, Pawtucket, Fruit Loop. 1:17:32

Myself and Francine started out together tonight. I ran with Frankie for the first 20 minutes of my run and then I picked up the pace to 6 min miles and brought it home. I had a workout scheduled but I put it off until tomorrow due to both physical and mental fatigue coupled with some stress. You see, I had an informal interview today and even though I had a great time and met some great people it kicked in that a month has passed in my three month severance period and I only had my first meeting today.

Anyway, on a positive and keeping it that way, I decided I would be better served to just go out for a refreshing training run and do the session in the morning when I am mentally ready for it. My meeting today was with some folks from a shoe company I respect and who are doing great things in the industry. They have some fantastic people in the organization and it was very refreshing and inspiring to hear them talk so positively about running. I did not interview for a position per se, rather I had an informal meeting with people in various different positions within the company to see if there was a place I would fit in. I'm sure there are many places I can fit so long as the position opens and I am the right fit.

I had a wonderful yoga practice down at Eyes Of The World tonight. I missed last week since my nose blockage was still present therefore restricting my ability to breath. I figured I would get frustrated so I opted out. It was great to be back this evening and I felt really strong and comfortable in the postures considering I missed 2 weeks. I will miss the next two weeks here so I'll have to find something back in Drogheda!

I found a blog hosting the Radiohead -- 15 Step from the Grammys. You can download it from this site. I listened to the track on my run tonight and I really love it. The marching band drums sound so vibrant and alive, they are the perfect compliment to Thoms vocals and Jonnys guitar.

Peace and Love,
