Day 220…

10.24.12

Wow, I’m absurdly sore this morning.  So much so that it is tough to get out of bed.  Every muscle in my body hurts.  I have to think this is the result of 4 consecutive days of putting my body through various rigors which was topped off with the PT session at the gym.  In my mind I say to myself that this has to be what pro football players feel like on Monday mornings – like they got hit by a truck.  After I manage to pull myself out of bed, I take Riley for a walk, shower and head to work…

The only good thus far is that the body is loosening up slightly as I make my way to the subway – but I dread the idea of the stairs – who knows how the legs will feel…I manage better than anticipated.  On the train I run into a former colleague from my Ogilvy days.  I love random subway run-ins.  We catch up and part ways.  I get to the office and people can tell I’m struggling and I see the smiles on their faces.  I know it is all good smiles – the kind that know I’m getting myself back to normal, so I smile back and park myself at my desk…

It is another busy day here, so I’m doing everything I can to be as productive as possible.  Being short-staffed is never fun, but it does still yield quality work.  Everyone on the team is slammed, but we find ways to be very efficient…breaking for lunch and then right back at it…

There is an ALS benefit that I’m supposed to go to tonight, but the massive exhaustion that I feel is telling me to listen to my body and pass on the event.  I have laundry to do and I really just want a night at home with Riley and my couch.  I tell my parents and sister that I’m not going to go to the event and I get back to the tasks at hand for the rest of the work day…

Finishing things up here and heading home.  Excited to get laundry done, make dinner and hit my couch for some DVR and some baseball…no surprise to me that I’m getting tired early, so to bed I go…

Night all…
