Training Week: 2 (race week!)
Time: 64 min
Activity: PT Exercises
Ate Well: Yes (feel so much better)
Commentary: The run this morning felt awesome! The first half was a warmup, and the second half was intervals. I’ve been working on breathing through my nose while running. During the intervals, I could calmly breathe through my nose even when I got up to 85% of my max heart rate.
During my forced computer breaks, thanks to some software installed on my work computer, I did some PT exercises. I specifically focused on ones for ITBS. Since my left IT band gave me hell during Dead Horse, I figured it was probably good to work on that. Probably should have started earlier, but I plan to do them every day this week. I even did some banded side steps yesterday! Granted, that’s all I did yesterday, but oh well.
To avoid signing a telework agreement, I chose to work from an in-town office building when I wasn’t out in the desert. Now I want to work from home. First, I want to spend as much time with Oreo as possible. Second, now that I have remote desktop access to a school lab computer, I have no reason to go to the lab, which happened to be by my in-town office. Third, I save so much time working from home between commuting and preparing/gathering breakfast and lunch.
If I want to work from home, I not only need to sign a telework agreement, but I also need to upgrade my home office. My home monitor was okay, but I really wanted a bigger one. On Sunday, I bought a big ass monitor at Costco, and I love it! While the new monitor is great, my desk is my fricking dining room table. I miss the adjustable desks I have in my offices. And I especially miss the adjustable desk with the lower keyboard shelf at my in-town office.
I decided to go all out. I ordered an adjustable desk with a keyboard shelf the same size as my dining room table, so I know it will fit. I also ordered an under-desk treadmill so I can walk while I work! Think of how many more miles I can get each day! Granted, I’ll probably only use it 2-3 times a week, but that could add up to ten or more extra hours of walking per week. I’m pretty stoked. Let’s hope I don’t fall off the damn thing though.
Question of the Day: Do you work from home and have an amazing home office? If you do, tell me about it! I need the inspiration to make my home office as awesome as possible!

Endlessly seeking adventure.
even though I’m retired, work part time selling run stuff, and lead 3 run clubs, I have this desire to work from at something…but, okay I keep hoping that Lululemon will have that opening..but, well, not sure why, but keep thinking it’d be cool I’ve always loved their business model and what lulu does…but maybe someday

Not really related to working but I’ve found keeping chapstick and vitamin E oil at my home desk is so helpful! Might as well have moisturized lips and cuticles!

Yes! Chapstick is a must!
