Today I decided to step outside my comfort zone (and office building) on lunch break. I typically don’t take a break let alone leave the building for lunch so this was big for me. Leading teams of new hire team members - I often think the world will collapse and end if I’m not available every min of the day.
Guess what happened today? I went to @planetfitness for my lunch hour, ran two miles, and got back to work with a few mins to spare. I EVEN ATE LUNCH TOO.
There are only two other people in the company who share the same job role as me and I think the only two who will truly understand how big this is.
I read a CNN article the other day about how INEFFECTIVE working more than 40 hours a week is and it blew my mind all while completely changing my perspective on work.
If I want to give my best self to my new hires, my peers than I need to find that balance and take time for me.
My goal is to at least make this a 3/5 day a week plan - running through lunch. After today I hope this is what I can do almost every day.
Talk about feeling refreshed and refocused. I’m even more ready to take on the rest of my day.
Picture #2 is how super excited and accomplished I felt leaving the gym and heading back to the office. :) I’m so stoked today.
Last race of the year and repping @drinkzeds that starts with the last letter in the alphabet... Cooncidence? Or am I just thinkin way too much about this? That said the Alexa Thunder Trail Run 1/2 Marathon was a great race. The final two miles were 🍌s with a crazy incline and then down hill to close things out. And it was cold again. It was challenging and fun to be a part of. Always fun to start the weekend off with a run. (967 miles down and 33 to go) #runningforthebeer#friend2friend_scwf#friend2friendscwf
Jawel, de Sint heeft mij woensdag verblijd met 2 paar Happy Socks sportsokken! Die kwamen goed van pas bij crossfit vanochtend in alle vroegte voor m’n werk. Daarna in de lunchpauze er ook nog lekker een rondje Oudekerkerplas meegerend dus nu wel weer genoeg gesport voor vandaag. 🏃🏽♀️🏋🏼♀️🧦
