LR + Call
I did not sleep enough last night (had work stuff at something like 10:30 pm and then midnight) but figured I would rather get my long run in and nap later than postpone until Sunday. Since it’s summer, I don’t trust the weather and thus refuse to throw away a decent morning (73F at the start and no storm threat — for June that’s pretty good!).
I ran 18 miles and my knee felt good, so that made me happy! I had one call from the hospital towards the end but it required a very quick answer, so that was good. I am grateful and glad I was able to get this run in.
I’m currently at the very last gymnastics of the season! I do have to go to the hospital to see patients later today — and WOW our patient list is long! — but I’m feeling good. 2 more nights and I am honestly kind of happy with my coping skills / attitude this week.
(We used to have call weeks start on Tuesday. It’s still the same number of days, but I cannot tell you how much I prefer Monday!! It’s just such a nice feeling to know that I get to start fresh with a new week not on call. With the old system, somehow I felt like the stress ended up fully spanning both weeks, like a call hangover or something.)
PLANS FOR TODAY:
✅ 18 mi long run
✅ Finish I Have Some Questions for You. I think this book has risen to FAVORITE OF 2023 status. Just wow.
❏ Round in hospital.
❏ Play with JetPens stuff that is coming today that I stress ordered!
❏ Take a nap. I probably need to do this before going to the hospital, honestly. Like ~45-60 min.
❏ Meal plan / grocery list (PrepDish this week)
❏ POSSIBLY stop by Trader Joe’s on way back from hospital if I have enough energy.
We have no plans tonight which I am not sad about. Low key night at home sounds perfect to me.
