the medal hanger looks cool.

I only have a selfmade one, which is literally a bromstick screwed to the wall...
Thanks! A broomstick can be also very stylish!

Steps today: 3718

Saturday March 2nd
DOMS is still here.. Besides my run I didn't do any workout. But I walked twice from the parking lot to the city center, because I did some spontaneous purchase which was kind of backfired 😅 I was in the music shop and I bought the CD that they were playing in the shop. But I didn't know/realise, that the shop owner gave me the cover of the CD, and the CD itself was in their player. The plastic was also just around the cover, so it looked like it was a complete one. At home I discovered the CD wasn't there so had to go back..
▪️  Run 6.10 km trail. 162 m elevation gain

@Laura Rainbow Dragon thanks!
@CODawn to you too!
@PetiteSheWolf yw!

I have fallen off the wagon again.. I don't feel well. I'm very tired. Last week I got pharyngitis, on Thursday I felt good again but on Friday my voice broke and it's still gone.
I think it's the result of too much work stress over too much time. My body is hitting an emergency break.
My manager doesn't seem to underdstand, he just said that I might need a coach because I tend to wire up myself. He forgets that the total workload is that of 2 employees instead of only my own. That's the problem. I need him to say 'hey Nancy, you're sick so just call in sick, no need to hit rock bottom and be sick for months instead of days. Take care of yourself'. Not add a coach to my already not fitting work schedule.

I hope spring will bring me some energy and positivity.

@Laura Rainbow Dragon thanks :thanks: I'm not getting the impression that he does. Though someone in training started this month, but he's only working half days because of work/private stress the past six months. He also said he would find someone for my free Wednesdays, but I don't hear anything about this.

@Deadoks @PetiteSheWolf @Mamatigerj @JCU @Anek @MadamMeow @Lady Celerity :thanks: thank you
