There’s something to be said about taking a vacation day after vacation is over.
That lil’ extra 24 hours off does wonders. I’m much more rested than I would have been if I came in to work yesterday. Ideal considering the mess that will be my inbox when finally opened up. Not looking forward to that one.
Seriously- is there a way email can be avoided for the rest of the day? That would be fantastic…
Anyway. After crashing and spacing out on the couch for a few hours after getting Sunday night, I slept in all the way to 6:30 yesterday morning.
That’s right- it was my day off and I was up before the roommate even left for work. It’s how I do.
The plan was to get an early run in and relax before the Cubs game.
Instead, it rained. And rained. And I started to wonder if either one of the previously mentioned activities would happen.
But a clearing in the sky happened and Megan gave me crap about being a wus, so off I went.
It was still decently early, so I ran through the remains of the celebration of the Chicago Pride Parade.
It smelled like booze and good times. A little crazier than my Sunday in the car. Which smelled like my friend’s gym bag (his fault), dirty hair (both guilty), and Arby’s (both guilty again) for most of the ride. A disturbing combination indeed.
Anyway, because I’m slightly ADD and still checking out all the streets in my running “area”, I was able to make a 4.65 loop before realizing the time crunch I was working with.
Neighborhood running may soon trump the trails I used to run on. Mostly because I keep entertained with sights and not trying to run people over. My speed may suffer. But it’s all about give and take in such non-gym member circumstances.
But back to the time crunch. I started to rush. Because some things are important to be on time for.This is one of them. Thank goodness the sun decided to stick around for the rest of the day. Imagine my annoyance and frustration had it been rained out when I took an extra vacation day from work.
Oh Wrigley Field… I’m a Cardinals fan, but I will always enjoy the Friendly Confines. This I know.Megan and I didn’t indulge in baseball favorites like last time, but there was still a brew or two to be had.
Monday Funday. It doesn’t happen often, so you’ve got to make sure to celebrate properly. Ya dig?
Ok fine… it’s time to throw myself into work now and hopefully be so busy that I won’t even notice the awfulness that is Tuesday.
