It’s a BIG week – our first round of residency interviews start (!), and I’m running that show (along with our interim coordinator) for the first time. Though I did get plenty of experience in our last 2 recruitment seasons, it’s different to feel entirely responsible for the process and its outcome. Definitely more stressful, and I will be relieved when this week is over.
Hopefully we will continue to recruit the kinds of candidates we currently have. I feel like our overall yield has been incredibly kind and hard-working residents and so . . . hopefully this will perpetuate itself. Fingers crossed.
Today, however, is a clinical day. So I will be focused on wrapping up my call week (prepping the list!) and seeing patients. I actually don’t mind the compartmentalization that is now a given in my schedule. It’s almost like my clinical work is a break from the GME side and vice versa . . .
WEEKLY WORKOUTS (last week)
M – BB 21 DF, Total Body Cardio (8 / 10 / 12 lb weights)
T – 4 mi easy, 9:56/mi, 73F felt lovely in comparison to the usual
W – BB 21 DF, Upper Fix, 8 and 12 lb weights. Pushups: 18 up / 6 down, 12 up / 7 down. I seem to plateau at 30 total ‘regular’ pushups.
R – off (too tired so cashed in Friday’s “flex” day)
F – 4 mi with 6 x 30 seconds at zone 4-5 (a bit faster than 5K race pace) with 1 minute rests between. Total = 10:11/mi.
S – BB 21 DF Pilates
S – 6 mi long, 81F and humid (ugh), 10:17/mi. The heat definitely impacted me on this one!
DINNER PLAN (this week)
M – Salmon, rice, green beans (kids liked this last week)
T – Fartlek chili from RFES, tortilla chips
W – leftovers
R – Green curry tofu noodles from this month’s Real Simple. Not sure how the kids will feel about this one but I feel like we need to branch out once in a while . . .
F – Leftover (if kids hated it they can have pasta & jarred sauce)
S – dinner party @ our house (work colleagues)
S – cook something or out as a family (sushi perhaps)
