I will start my new job this coming Thursday. The company that makes their automated scanning machine I coming in on that Thursday and Friday to do some extensive training on their equipment, so I sort of figured that would be a great time to start. Seeing as how I will be training guys on how to use the equipment, I figured it would be a great if I knew how to use it myself.
I'm not sure what my schedule will be these first 2 days due to the training, but after this week I will be on a set schedule.... For a week. Then we go back to Disney World!!!
After Disney, things should settle down, I will be back in a normal routine, and I will start running again and resume my training!
At first ill just start running around the neighborhood before work, and maybe grab a few miles in the evenings when schedule allows. Since were members of the local YMCA, i have access to a 25 meter lap pool, so i will also start incorporating some swimming into my workouts! Then start getting my long runs in on the weekends after I've worked back up to it.
On top of that, I will be able to start eating right again!
When I'm comfortable with it, I will start making my daily commute to and from work via my new bike. Then eventually I will start making the commute on foot! It's 7.17 miles away (yes, I've actually used my GPS and measured it...) so I figure a little over an hour to run there, and a little over an hour to run back. But if I could get to where I'm running to work 3 or 4 days a week, that's an additional 42 to 56 miles a week ONTOP of my weekend long runs! 14 miles a day if I ran both ways!
Needless to say, I'm very VERY VERY excited about the opportunities that are about to open up in my life!
But I think the best thing about this jobs is the fact that I will be able to make it to all of my kids extracurricular activities!
