I still can't shake the bad feelings that have been plaguing me lately. Since I have to work an overnight tonight, I decided to do my long run today. I set out for 18 miles, and the air was cool and the GPS reported numbers that made me think it was messed up, but I spent over 10 miles thinking about work.
In particular I thought about a conversation I had yesterday with my boss in which he was pressing me to decide on which weekend to do some Huge Server Thing we need to do, and I was saying well, not this weekend, and not next weekend because we're doing blah blah blah, and we're doing some other work the weekend after that, and then maybe the next one after that but could I take a couple hours off that Saturday to go to a friend's wedding? (he said, well let's just pick another weekend then). Anyway I was thinking about this around 10 miles when it finally occurred to me that I never asked "hey, how about a weekend where we don't do ANY work?" That did it, depressed me so much I came in, turned off the watch, got into bed and stared at the wall for a couple hours.
So despite the overnight I will try 18 again tomorrow.

I hope you find another job very, very soon! And if you don't, I'm rather liking unemployment.

Not very positive, Joe.
