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.
