Johnson & Johnson Performance 5K #284 (81 remaining)

12 Apr


a warm welcome


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.

Immaculate grounds

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 favorite little man

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.

    Hey Simba,
    I hope you get some sleep soon. 🙂 Seriously though, you inspire me. Thanks for all that you are sharing.

    In case you saw the email that I sent to family and friends recently requesting input on my soon to be launched blog name I did not get it launched last week Saturday as I had hoped. However, I do have the domain name, and hosting through BlueHost. I’m watching videos on WordPress and getting pictures, etc. I look forward to be blogging regularly like you real soon.

      I did see your email late. If you still need feedback, I’ll respond with my thoughts. Your support and reading are much appreciated.

    How could I forget. I must say that I am also impressed by your “favorite little man.” This is the second time that I have read where he saw that you could use some encouragement or help and he was right there to help you. Way to go “favorite little man.” You are a great son!
