My day actually started with a full night of work from 11pm to 7am. Then off to Johnson & Johnson Performance Institute workshop.
This workshop was a full day of self discovery and learning new strategies to get the most out of the energy you have in a day.
A side benefit was getting to attend with several of my friends from Lucky’s lake. The class was lively, funny and very informative. I learned key strategies to be more effective. Strategies like breaking the myth of multitasking being an effective strategy. Eliminating the excuse story I tell myself as to why I’m not doing more. The value of adding recovery to your work day, just like an athlete does.
The campus was amazing and felt like a very exclusive country club. There were healthy snacks and drinks to keep you alert throughout the day.
Feeling uplifted and at the same time absolutely exhausted by the time I fought rush hour traffic to get home.
I knew I still had my 5K to run and my energy was almost zero. After tending to the kids, I slugged myself around to get my run clothes on. My son must have sensed my utter despair and offered to run with me. This kind gesture from Daddy’s little man was just the extra energy I needed to get through my 5K run today.
My run was surprisingly easy considering that I hadn’t slept for almost 24 hours. I had some spots of aches and pains but nothing I couldn’t manage. 284th 5K
An absolutely amazing day. That left me almost too tired to sleep, if that makes any sense.
