We’re one day closer to the weekend, but I’m on day 2 of feeling like dog doo. I woke up yesterday feeling off and not my best, but powered through a gross WOD at the Ad Finem box.
It felt so good to be back, even if I was quiet and kept to myself. Hey, who wants to talk and be wild when you’re not feeling all that great? On the menu for conditioning was three 600m runs. That’s not bad, but doing it in 40 degree weather at 7am isn’t fun. Probably didn’t help that we ran in our t-shirts. I, at least, had my running gloves on.
Each 600m got quicker as they went, although they felt more difficult each run.
- 2:45 seconds
- 2:40 seconds
- 2:34 seconds
I get so excited when I beat my time on each set. There will be a day when my last set is a second or 2 slower than a previous set, and I know I will flip a shit. Until then, I’ll enjoy my success!
I’m also enjoying the Hair, Skin & Nails supplements that I received as a Delta Labs Ambassador. I first received a sample of it when I was crowned an ambassador, and chose that as my October product. I am seriously LOVING it. I take 2 capsules with breakfast every morning, and love how clear it’s made my skin… except on those days that I touch my face too much… oopsies! 🙁
I had a successful day on Tuesday at the BlogWell Conference in Boston. Driving into the city always stresses me out, but it gets to the point where I just drive where I want to and use the “I’m out-of-state, move it,” excuse. Truthfully, I just zig-zag in and pray no one hits me. 🙂
Once I arrived to Fidelity, which is where the event was hosted, I grabbed a seat and got ready for an afternoon of case studies by 8 successful companies.
Each case study lasted 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions. You chose 4 of the studies to attend, and my favorite was by far Ben Cobb’s presentation on Reebok. You guys know I LOVE all things Reebok, so I was fan-girling internally during his presentation.
Ben gave an in-depth look on how they target the right influencers for their products, and also touched upon their brand ambassadors and blogging partnerships. My favorite part! I was able to get about 30 seconds worth of networking with Ben after his presentation, but unfortunately, since his presentation closed out the event, they all had a dinner to attend to. Hey, 30 seconds is better than wussing out, right?!
Getting out of the office to attend the BlogWell event was a fun and unique day for me, but the commute home was not fun. I could never commute to work, especially to and from Boston! I’ll take my 8 minute commute, thank you very much!
How long is your work commute?
Would you drive an hour plus for a really great job?
I’d relocate over commuting, but that’s just me!
