Totally Fried

I have several projects in the works for the short-term. It's an entirely manageable workload, but I think the process of thinking about all of them simultaneously as finally taken its toll on my brain. I don't mind saying it: I may have over-exerted my thoughts here. I'm on my second draft of an upcoming speech (details pending) and halfway through a new blog post about the psychology of running. On top of that I'm working and planning a weekend away.

It doesn't seem like much, but those of you who know me know I have a tendency to think hard about virtually everything. So I'm not surprised that I feel over-expended now.

Funny Story About That
At my recent appointment with my diabetes nurse/educator, I was trying to explain why I believe working out twice a day has a better impact on my blood glucose control than simply working out once a day. During my explanation, I said to her, "I work out pretty intensely--"

She interrupted me, saying, "You do a lot of things pretty intensely, don't you?"

So apparently I am not the only one who has noticed this. At any rate, I think it's a good sign. If people take notice of how involved you are with the things you do, and you do more than one thing, then it might mean you're on the right track.

At least, that's what I'm telling myself as my brain falters at the end of a long work week.

See you on the trails...
