A new start

Friday was my last day on my current team. A team I had worked in for 3 years. I am excited to begin a new role on Monday but it is also intimidating to be out of my comfort zone. I'm going to be transitioning from a Developer role (something I've done all my life) to a Program Manager role. A developer spends most of the time behind a computer. As program manager I will have to interact with people... meetings, customers, execs... It's not my default personality type so there lies the challange

W.r.t running, I think I overdid my long run last Saturday. I need to run these things much slower. I need to get back to Chuckit Sats and I think that will slove the problem. I used to be so good at pacing my long run right :) All in all, not much running this week ... Decided to start afresh next week...

Tue - 5.6
I think this is becoming - "lets be a wuss week". I stopped running after 5/8 laps of today's 2 mile time trial. Why? Because I did not feel like it ??? What the $#$#? Oh well...

Learning of the day: You can buy a license for a pet. The Seattle animal shelter mailed me the form to do so. It's just that I don't have a pet. Heck, I stuggle to take care of myself, leave alone a pet :p

Wed - 8
A little slower than usual...

Sight of the day: Someone had tied a hammock between two trees by the waterfront and was enjoying some zzzs. I though that was pretty cool.

Fri - REST
Felt very antsy and in general had very little sleep

Sat - REST
Got 12 hours of sleep and tried to mentally prepared for the new job...

Good luck with your change in direction! With such an upheaval, it's understandable that you're feeling a little out of sorts.

I like the observations you make while out on your runs. I don't think most people (myself included) are as observant. It sounds like you look for reasons to smile when you're out and about - good philosophy.

I'm sure your running will be back on track in no time. Take it easy...

Thanks Ed! Yeah... Change is good but it's a little unnerving at time. I'm hope everything will be back on track soon...
