New Job, adjusting and lack of running.

I got a new job, my current position is a warehouse associate working for a company called Medisave.   I basically went from 10 years of a corporate atmosphere to manufacturing, from a cushy office atmosphere to a warehouse, from sitting to standing on my feet 8 hours a day.   Seems like I am complaining but I’m not, just trying to describe how physically my body had to adjust to this new atmosphere.  My first week my thighs, and lower back were killing me, but as the days went by the more I started to adjust.  Two weeks in, I am getting into my groove.  It’s a fast paced work environment, good old fashion blue-collar work, which I enjoy.   I work on a concrete floor, and for footwear I have been switching between a pair of Vans, to Softstar Runamoc Dash Lites.    So anyone out there who works on their feet all day,I would to hear what you wear!  I am looking to get something with a bit more padding, but still want a zero heel drop.

So on to the running, or lack of.  I honestly wouldn’t care about not running as much, if I didn’t have a 50k on May 27th.  I think I officially fall into the category of “running an ultra with minimal training”.  I still get a long run in on the weekends, the weekly miles have dwindled.  Oh well, day by day…  My new motto as of lately.

  1. You have a nice base and will be fine come race day. Keep getting in those long runs and just go into the race looking to enjoy yourself. Congrats on the new job and good luck finding some shoes.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

215 x 8
240 x 6
It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
