The high of my week was the traveling tap social event that I did last night with some coworkers from my previous company. It's a really cool concept - it's easier to show you a picture than to explain how it works! It was so fun to see some former coworkers. Staying with my former company was not an option given my dislike for living in Charlotte (working in the Minneapolis office was not an option as my department was in Charlotte) but I do really miss my coworkers so I am glad I was able to see so many of them last night!

The low of my week was a snafu with the delivery of my RA injections. Long story short, my condo building messed up and didn't tell me I had a perishable package and I had to throw away half of the syringes because the medication has to be used within 14 days if it reaches room temperature, and that might have happened as the building couldn't tell me when they put my package in the fridge. Financially it's not a huge deal as my deductible is low but that is $1,000 worth of medication so it's incredibly wasteful to have to throw it away. And it involved going home during the day and making multiple phone calls. And I cried because I don't handle unexpected stress right now.
A blog post I loved was Becky's birthday post. That girl amazes me because she's been through so much in the past year but she's still so positive and has such a peace about herself.
For my workouts, I completed an arms workout on Monday morning, a 7-mile tempo run on Monday night, a bike ride on Tuesday, an 8 mile run that included a ladder speed workout on Wednesday night and a shred workout yesterday morning. Today will be my rest day, tomorrow I will run 16 miles (I think? We will see how I feel) and Sunday I will bike 35-40 miles if the weather permits!
The best money I spent was on the trip to Jamaica in early December that Phil and I booked for his best friend's wedding!!! This will be my first relaxing/beach vacation EVER!
My plans this weekend include going out to dinner with Phil tonight and stopping by his friend's birthday get together, run club tomorrow and another friend's birthday get together in the evening, and weather-permitting on Sunday my friend and I plan to bike to this cute town called Stillwater which is about about a 35-40 mile bike ride round trip but we'll stop in the middle to have lunch and walk around. I have less planned this weekend than last weekend which makes me happy because I've had a busy week and the next several weeks are sort of jam-packed.
What was the high and low of your week?
