I haven’t been around lately in blogworld because I haven’t been around lately in runworld. Projects, a busy schedule, and surrendering to winter woes took the front seat this week. I only ran once (a sad morning of mile repeats at 10k tempo pace), lifted weights + quick & hard AMT once, and did one bodyweight circuit. And that’s my whole week in workouts. Today I had the scary realization that I am running a marathon in 12 weeks, so things will need to get serious very soon.
Unfortunately, another snowstorm is headed our way this weekend with an expected 6-10 inches. Not amused, winter, not amused. I need to get my butt in gear for some treadmill time.
Though the fitness week was a bit lifeless, I did something really exciting in clinic yesterday! I fit a hearing aid on a 3-month old! Hearing aid fittings are my favorite kind of appointments, and pediatric ones are extra rewarding.
The baby didn’t look like this, but the hearing aid kind of did:
The second happy thing about this week: Bre, Andrea and I got giant pops for our weekly MATLAB date on Monday! ..And then Bre and I got a second one the next day when we went back to try again. Computer programming and signal processing will never come naturally to us.
I’m meeting the early group tomorrow for a 14-miler, hopefully before the snow comes down!
