Just to let you all know I'm still in the land of the living.
Looking for a new job is consuming a lot of my time and energy, both emotional and physical. I am still looking and although there are some prospects on the go, I don't have anything immediately following my last day on September 28. So along with the stress of looking, is the stress of budgeting and hoping that EI processes my claim quickly and accurately and wondering how to cope.
Running is going ok, I am not sure I will be ready to run 10k in October but I will do the race and I know I can at least run 7-8k so I'll see what happens on the day.
This clinic is not working out so well for me, I had a feeling it wouldn't when I started but I wanted to give it a shot. Wednesday practice runs are hard to get to unless I leave work early, which I couldn't do every week and Thursdays would only work if I could get a ride home with someone because it takes over an hour from the Running Room to home after the clinic (I have the same problem for Wednesday but we finish a bit earlier) and Sunday mornings don't work at all because of travel time.
Running on my own is going ok, but getting harder to do with it being dark so early. Unless I go out as soon as I get home, its not happening. This is why I ended up not running all last Winter and I had really wanted to get around that this year but I haven't come up with a solution.
2012 has had some major lows in all aspects of my life that I am still recovering from or trying to work around and I am hoping that with Fall comes a rebirth and new cycle of change for my life.
