Wednesday. I have nothing clever.

1. I ran last night. It wasn't good. It wasn't bad. It just was. 10:42, 10:31, 10:39, 10:05, 9:41 (<-- test mile at goal pace for this weekend's 10K), 11:10. 6 miles, 1:02:48.

2. That's 6 miles in 4 minutes under my current 10K PR.

3. PCRF offers a class at 24 Hour Fitness for the VIP Training Program. Last year, it was a mind/body yoga-pilates-stretchy for runners class. It was glorious.

4. I wasn't sure I was going to go, since it's at 6am, and, hello, I don't even roll out of bed to get ready for work most days by 6 am. But, I was lured in by the promise of gifts furnished by Lulu.

5. Mother effer, strength conditioning for runners IS NOT THE SAME as yoga-stretchy-omm. Curse it.

6. I watched part of Office Space last night, and had "damn it feels good to be a gangster" running through my brain all morning. I did NOT feel good OR gangster during that class.

7. I've been giving annual reviews to my staff all week. Consider this nugget of wisdom next time you have a review: If your manager says that one of the concerns they have about your performance is that your attitude is poor, you don't respond well to coaching, and that your body language comes across as incredibly negative during coaching sessions, DO NOT sit in front of her with your arms crossed and not follow along in your review. I promise, it does not help your cause. Also, it makes you look like an asshole.

8. Apparently, I am feeling extra complainy today.

Heather I am going to share your last paragraph with my husband, who has the same difficulties with some of his staff. He came home last night saying almost exactly the same thing. Management is one of the most challenging jobs there is. I couldn't do it. Hang in there.

I think you'll get that PR this weekend, assuming you've got the right date for the race.

Ugh, review time here too. Mine is today. I kind of hate and love this time of year.

Ahhh frack. I have to do my reviews in the next week or so and I am dreading it. The one person who is the big a-hole on my team called in sick today. Apparently this person felt overloaded due to the long weekend and needed another day off. My peeps are ticked and I don't blame them.

Umm Lulu? Yes, get your arse there by 6 am my friend :)

I missed swim class all 3 days last week because it was at 6am and early. I don't know how on earth you did that "yoga" class!
