Yes, I have a ton of stuff going on right now, most of which I usually put before my own needs. Not so today! Knowing I had a 4 mile run scheduled on Thursday, I planned my week out so I could leave the office at a reasonable hour to go home and run this evening. Others on my team claimed various personal conflicts throughout the week as reasons why they needed to leave "early." So, as I departed the office today with others still working, I felt slightly guilty, but reminded myself that my personal life is just as important as theirs, and I had put in my time when they were gone. My training is a constant right now - there's no slipping up for me, for fear of relapse and going into January unprepared again. So I did it - I left. I got my run in (plus many other errands I'd been postponing all week), and I feel great!
