For a busy week, this has been one of the most unproductive ever, For an unproductive week, this has been one of the busiest ever. At the clinic there were no clients at all, which resulted in an utter waste of at least six hours each day, unless you count the 7th rereading of The Selling of the President 1968, which I don't.
On the other hand, I had two interviews this week and set up one for next week. One place offered me a job I don't want - they pay less than the clinic where I work now, and they're as un-busy, or even un-busier. I found I had to do a lot of multiplication and division by zero to compare this position to my current one, and it confuses my little massage-therapist brain. Drive 22 miles to sit around unpaid all day hoping to earn $XX, or drive only 7 miles to sit around unpaid all day hoping to earn $X? The other place (which I decided would be utterly perfect) sent me off with the ol' "well, we have some other people to interview, we'll be in touch..." Anyway, there's been an awful lot of driving around to interviews this week, to no good end.
Running's been more of a stress-inducer than reliever. Monday I had a sore gastroc, and Tuesday it was more sore, but I ran my not-so-difficult workout, and by Wednesday my gait was just beginning to get weird. I really hated to bother coach about a sore calf, but I did, and he said to cut back a bit on the mileage (which I've done) and to NOT RACE if it's sore Sunday (which advice I will heed). After a very light running day and a lot of fussing (stretch/massage/ice/etc) it's a lot better but not 100%. We'll see.
Boy this has been quite the bit of whining, hasn't it?

ohhhh....sorry to hear of the soreness. Mommy Michelle and I, as well as my sis and her hubby, all joined in the Gasparilla 5K and it was a delight. I wanted to wish you luck in the half marathon.... I had a 10 minute massage by Manfred on Friday at the convention center and he said you might be doing the sunday run. There will be others. I ran side by side with my mom and we surpassed our Blizzard Run by atleast 2 minutes and I just wanted to say Hi to you! Now it's time to fly back to NY! --Jenny
