So I’ve been MIA for the last month or so… Mostly because I’ve been kind of overwhelmed adjusting to a Monday through Friday kind of job after working evenings for the last two years. Most nights I feel like this by 8pm:
It’s also been really hard for me to run much during the week. It’s been way too hot to try to run after work, and I don’t have time to run more than four miles in the morning. On the plus side, I always have my weekends free to do my long runs. 🙂
Without boring you with the details, I now work for a regional EMS council, helping make sure EMS agencies and hospitals comply with state regulations. It’s a lot more involved than that, but I’m not sure you want to know all of it. I still get to ride at the squad and work at the pediatric center on occasion, so I get my clinical care fix without getting burnt out. 😀
…And I have a fabulous office all to myself.
I’m not used to a desk job, though, so I usually take my lunch break to get out of the office and either wander around a store, like Target (and try not to buy anything), or I check out a nearby park when the weather is nice.
I’m adjusting slowly, but I’m getting there, and I’m starting to like my new normal… 🙂
