RUN: 30 min. / TREADMILL / AVE SPEED 4.6

When you go back to work after being off it is always tought but today was extremely challenging to say the least. Everyone was extremely testy and the work load had increased. The pressure was there to get our new treatment maching up and running. My boss and I work on it and we were able to get 4 patients treated on the machine and hope to add more tomorrow. We want to get all the bugs worked out before it goes nuts.

I had to work late then go to the grocery. My MIL is wonderful to have around. My laundry again was done along with a clean house including the bathrooms. I came in and changed and she "forced" me to go work out. What a lady!

I was suprised at how good that I have been feeling lately when I run. I know there are always bad days but something is starting to click.

Waddling to watch a movie.....

Cute cat! Looks like the one I used to have. Nice to have your MIL around, since you get along so well and all. Maybe you should just build her a wing off your house? I think you eventually get over the hump of workouts, but then there always has to be a bad day mixed in to keep you humble. You're getting there!

Going back to the daily grind is always a rude awakening! Nice MIL! And, awwwwwwwwwww... Cute kitty!

Would your MIL like to come visit me in Florida for a few weeks?

Click indeed...this is very, very good news to hear how the running is setteling in. Very good news.

Learning curves for new processes are nothing to sneeze at. PDCA, as Demming described it, can be very helpful...especially in explaining the "ramp up" to coworkers. You'll handle it.

I'm sure your MIL enjoys being with you. Your family is a huge gift to her.

I'm glad you are feeling better about your running! You should! You look very strong.

And you will all get the new machine soon and work will resume to normal. :)

I've heard that you really never know when you are on the brink of a running breakthrough...

Wishing you Happy Waddling!
