After almost two weeks of doing nothing but easy running and sitting around reading books, I started back on my second clinical rotation this yesterday. Getting back to an 8-5 is rough, add a weekend of very little sleep and the most fun you ever had and you get even more bummed out to go back.
I am getting used to my 6:30 alarm again (though it will have to be 5:30 tomorrow so I can run) and remembering what it is like to actually be indoors for 9 straight hours. The first few days are also always rough because you have to learn new computer systems, clinic operations, scheduling and how to manage a full day without getting overwhelmed. I am sure as the week goes on I will settle in and by next week I will really be in the swing of things (especially after a weekend catching up on sleep).
After work I was able to meet up with Lauren (from the relay team) for a short easy run. It was good for my morale to see someone from the team. It also made my day that when I plucked my phone from my purse before leaving I saw this…
Yep, thats 95 texts in 4 hours people. We all kinda miss each other, haha! Once again, I can’t explain it, just run a relay, thats the only way you will know.
Hitting the bed super early tonight. Early run, rotation 8-5, CARES clinic 6-9. Alex will = Exhausted!
