2011 Starts Today.
My new life started today! School went back for the year and for the first time in I-don't-know-how-long I didn't have anyone going. I slept in!! Weird!
I start work today and that's weird too. It's the first beginning of the year where I don't have a partner. It's a little sad but I'll cope. I have to. I'm a little nervous though about how this will all go. This is always the busiest time of year for me so it's going to be a bit difficult knowing how much work I can take on and getting the balance right.
And talking about losing my business partner - my sister - things had been a bit (lot) strained between us since she called it quits. I felt abandoned and she felt guilty and there wasn't much but the basic communication between us. Things have improved a lot in the last month or so. And I'm so relieved. It was hard enough losing a business partner but to lose a sister and friend as well seemed to be so unfair. I wrote her a nice, supportive Christmas card (or that was the intention) and she sent me a lovely text and on the weekend we went to the movies together and it was just like it used to be. Thank goodness for time and its healing effects.
Running has started up again for me too. I had my first session back on Saturday. It was supposed to be a long slow run of 16k BUT all our running routes have been temporarily inaccessible because of the floods SO Coach Chris sent us for a run around a mountain. UGHHH!!! Damn, I hate hills. That was NOT the session that I wanted first up after 2 weeks off. It hurt - a lot. And it's still hurting - a little. Why, oh why, can't muscles remember that they've done this before? I'm just praying that our old routes are quickly back to normal.
