Work is getting to be too much.

I don’t mind OT once in a while, but for the last 2.5 months I feel like I’ve been overloaded. Last night was another 14.5 hour day – and that’s 14.5 hours of inputting/compiling/analyzing as quickly as I can. Exhausting, to say the least.

I got home around 10:30. I fully intended to go out for a run until I sat down, ate, and realized that it was nearly 11:00, dark, and cold outside :(. I didn’t end up going for a run :(.

I felt really guilty about it. I also felt really lazy/out of shape. I know it’s just been 2 weeks since the marathon, but I can definitely tell that I haven’t done a lot since. My stomach protrudes a little more every day… I should really watch what I’m eating more. I really miss being FIT! 🙂 (Is this the start of an addiction to working out/being fast/fit? I can’t tell if it’s normal to feel like this after just 2 weeks off/easy)

So, I went to bed, fully intending to run in the morning. Except that during the middle of the night I woke several times & could tell I’m coming down with something. Noooo!!!! Today I’ve been sniffling & my glands feel a little swollen. Great. I’m not an advocate of running while sick — I think it just takes longer to recover from it. So, no running today for me :(.

It’s probably good to have this “forced” time off. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. I really, really dislike it, though…
