Need some advice, or maybe just a little cheer up
I need some advice….
Things are stressful right now.
I missed a good chunk of training due to my knee miss-hap and now I’m really stressing about the marathon at the end of May.
I have the option to try to sell my bib and purchase a half marathon bib instead. Of course, there is a huge voice inside of me that is screaming “DON’T DO THAT! WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU!!!!”. But then there’s also a tiny voice of reason that’s telling me that’s probably the intelligent and smart thing to do, despite the fact that I feel like I’m letting myself and others down. I wanted to run this marathon for my late grandma and I successfully fundraised $1200 for the Canadian Cancer Society! I’m so proud of that! But then I went and tripped over my dog after having the stomach flu and screwed up my training. I’m sure I could pull it off. I’m an asthmatic who has run a marathon with bronchitis (I do not recommend or condone doing that). But I’m just really torn about what I should do….
I had a very strange and uncomfortable last day at the office today at my job that I’m sort of kind of leaving for a new summer job. I’ll be working for them during the summer from home doing part-time work on an as-need basis until they find someone who will be taking over my position as part of a new full-time position. It’s a very weird and awkward situation because I was not informed of anything until the very last minute and then expected to train and do everything without being given full-time hours. So I went and found a full-time summer job. And now I’m being asked for my phone number at my new job and being told that they will be in contact with my new boss to arrange for days off if they need me….. umm…. WHAT? No. It’s just so unprofessional and awkward and it just makes me feel very uncomfortable. I’m trying to remain professional and do the best work possible. It’s hard to explain without going into a lot more detail. But the gist of it is that it’s stressing me out. Big time.
Anyhow…. any advice is appreciated… or just words of wisdom really. Or just a funny gif. I could use that today.
