Slept in until 6:00 this morning. I may do a strength workout at some point today. Work, laundry, grocery shopping also all need to get done today.

I need to get back on track. Next week will be off due to being in NJ for work, but I need to be more balanced and on track again starting the following week. Athens marathon is not that far away. There are 6 of us going on the trip. April and I are running the marathon, Mike is running the 10k, and the other 3 are just going for the vacation. April and I will stay together and plan to enjoy the experience, stop for pictures, etc. We are thinking a 4:20-4:30 marathon. April said she needs to get to work for this. LOL. I don't mind if we end up being slower.

Had a routine meeting with my director. She expressed a bit of concern about my workload. Thank goodness!!!! I guess due to a project leader taking leave due to an emergency and me starting at the same time, my original assignments were changed. The director is realizing that the workload I have may be a bit too much for one project leader. Yep!!! And I am a new project leader!!! She is going to look at some things and see what can be done. We are meeting again in 2 weeks to do a final assessment of the workload and make a decision. I will be at Sanofi USA headquarters in NJ all next week for a file review and meetings. One of my studies is so old it was before we went to electronic trial files. I can only imagine how far behind I will be on work after being out for a week. When I was on vacation for IM WI, I was still working and keeping up with things. I am really hoping for some relief soon.

Tiki Swim 2.4 mile in Oceanside.
The waves were not very large, but there was a lot of chop today. It was difficult to see the markers due to the swells. Lots of contact going out past the pier. Very rough with so many bodies. I think this was worse that I dealt with at IM WI. Finally found clear water after the first turn. Water temp was 69 degrees - nice with full wetsuit.
I placed 2nd in the Female 40 -49 year age group. Mike placed 2nd in the Male 40 -49 age group.

Walked over to Moonlight beach for a very short ocean swim.

Feeling fully recovered.

A low key day. Need to do some work and then plan on reading and maybe taking a nap. We may go to a movie later this afternoon.

Tiki swim tomorrow and then back to some regular training in Monday.
I really need to get work under control. I just can't keep working this much.
