Right now I run the overnight Logistics process, well next month the week of Easter my team and I will be transitioning to an Early morning Logistics process. What does that mean you might be asking??? It means instead of reporting to work at 9pm I will now be reporting to work at 3:30am and working until about 1:30 pm. I also will be moving to a every other weekend schedule with one solid day off during the week instead of what I have now which is I work 4 nights and off 3. So big changes, but the biggest is dealing with losing 18 team members because they will not be able to transition with us. That is a big number.
So this week and next I need to on board about 30 new team members. I have to increase the size of the team because we have half the time to get the push completed. Push needs to be done by store opening at 8am. A lot of changes taken place and well, I don't adapt to change very well. But this time I have a plan.
It is stressful, but I would like to think I am handling it pretty well. That is one reason I am looking forward to this taper so that I can recharge mentally and physically.
As with any taper the self doubts slowly make there way into my head, but this time I also have a plan for that. I know, all about plans this time around. I am staying focused and positive, I have already written my goals down for race day and have a back up plan for if things go south. I keep telling myself that the training miles are there the time is there and I am ready. I am ready for this race. The one thing that is different this year then last is my family wont be there, but I will have the support of my running family!
I have been seeing Lily from massage by Lily so that she can work on
The focus: Stay Positive!!!! Race Goals, and plans for "if" something happens. Positive thoughts and listening to my body.
