A detailed version for you this week because why not.
WORK: I am on call, which starts tomorrow. However, this is yet another one of those blessed call weeks where I do not have to cover overnight! (Comparatively, I LOVE these call weeks!).
Today is going to be a GME/research-focused day — we found out Friday that we received IRB approval to launch a coaching study in our institution’s PGY2s, so now there are several things that are time-sensitive as we move towards launch. I’m excited for this project though!
(I’ve never done anything requiring IRB approval or exemption and currently I have 2 projects in the works. It feels weird and moderately anxiety-provoking. I am never going to be a researcher for the primary part of my career!)
KIDS: Welllll, after skating we received an email that we have to keep the kids out of camp due to an exposure in A’s group (not sure how close the exposure was – they didn’t provide details). I hope they can stay busy enough this week. This is actually our first quarantine other than when WE were the ones with COVID.
We are definitely surging with cases here. And our hospital is getting filled up with (unvaccinated) COVID admissions. Depressing.
M: Run 30 min + 6 strides (20 seconds running faster / 60 seconds recovery x 6)
T: Peloton strength – usually a 30 minute Strength for Runners with Becs Gentry because I just find her delightful and these are not tooooooo hard
W: Threshold run – 2 x 1 miles, 2 x 1K (threshold pace = ~9:30/mi. Heat is preventing me from ramping speed up too much but hoping the effort will pay off by wintertime . . .)
R: Peloton yoga – 30 or 45 minute flow class of some kind
F: Threshold run #2 – 1 x 2 miles, 1 x 1 mi (threshold pace)
S: Peloton strength stack – 30-40 min total such as 20 min barre + 15 min Flash 15 (strength)
S: Easy longer run (45 min)
DINNER PLAN: all from Dinner Illustrated
M: Nepalese chicken curry with rice + green beans
W: black bean soup (w/ sour cream + tortilla chips)
R: basil/garlicky spaghetti with Roma tomatoes
S: takeout night!
S: TBD – something easy though!
READING: Crying in H Mart. Excited to read this acclaimed memoir. (I tore through The Other Black Girl this past weekend in 2 days. I’m not sure how I felt about it after the fact, but it was very gripping and I did not want to put it down.)
ORGANIZE 365: I will be ambitious and announce that this week will be the week I finally complete the “Bedroom” section! Days #35-42 of the 100 day program include nightstands, books, and surfaces in the bedroom. IT IS TIME. I will set a timer for 15 minutes each night and get this done as I’ve been ‘stuck’ for a couple of weeks now!
