In back down in California, my last two weeks of my job here. I’m staying over the weekend and will not be with my husband for Valentine’s Day. I saw a pretty great card last week that is just SO US, so I purchased it immediately and it came to the office today. Hopefully if I get it out by tomorrow it will reach Seattle in time to surprise him. I know he’ll be a little upset that he didn’t get me anything (this is not lack of faith, I just know him, and we don’t celebrate holidays) but he’ll also understand because the card is awesome. I’ll post it after he gets it, just because there’s a tiny slim chance he’d check my blog and I don’t want to ruin it for him (though also knowing him, he won’t check the mail for days and it could arrive on time and he wouldn’t know, lol).
The reason I’m staying here over the weekend is to get my RRCA coaching certificate! I was going to write a big, long (ish) post about why I want to be a coach and why I’m getting my cert now, but for brevity’s sake, and because I’m tired and not feeling quite so eloquent right now, I’ll leave it at, it’s just in me. I coach my friends on the track when I’m in Seattle, I coach new people who come into crossfit (with my coaches nearby, of course) I’ve enjoyed “coaching”/training my dog, maybe I’m just bossy? Anyway, I love running and fitness and I want everyone who wants learn about running to join me and succeed and live healthy lives. I’m forever an optimist, and I have been through injury hell and back so many times that I’m a walking billboard of what not to do. If I can prevent one moment of agony for someone because of what I learn at this course, it will all be worth it.
Injuries and physical therapy can suck, don’t walk around in public with ice strapped to you, like me!
Having two weeks left has me really excited for the future. I’m in a really good mood and feeling like putting a lot of energy into rehab, crossfit and running right now. I’m just so excited about the idea of having actual time to do these things during the day! I’m planning on taking about a month to clean my house (literally) and get my body in order. Laurie, my PT and I are going to work the crap out of my ankles and I’m going to also make sure to get stronger in my athletic engineering classes. My core and hips and glutes are going to be so damn rehabbed, rawr, I’m coming for you broken, inflexible body!
So many projects to finish editing!
I’m going to work on some different time management techniques and find my best method. I’ve been dabbling with the pomodoro technique which I know I found off someone’s blog (sorry for not remembering whose!) and I might go back to the Franklin Covey method, but I can’t imagine handwriting everything down like that again. Then there’s my OneNote app (which I can’t live without in my current job) which I just need to clean up a bit. Anyway lots of time management issues in front of me, my goal is to stay semi busy but relaxed, we’ll see how it goes. My biggest fear is that I’ll just be spinning my wheels and not actually be productive!
I’ve got a couple of posts brewing and I’m looking forward to writing more often (though I will likely never be a more than once a day type, I have trouble writing everyday, there’s other content to be made and life to actually be lived!).
I’ve been enjoying the 28 Day Blog Challenge, I’ll be recapping it a couple days after it’s over. I won’t be able to participate at the very end though because I’ll be skiing in Whistler with about 20-30 of my friends and friends of friends! I’ll write about this annual trip before I go. See, so much content coming your way, now to sleep so I don’t get depressed about missing CF in the morning because I stayed up too late writing random stuff!
