Untitled Drama #1

Work is on high alert. My project is under scrutiny by the BigBoss by the minutes, given the task at hand and list of mountains of deliverables. I felt all staff and all parties are pulling pieces off me from all directions. 
Crap! Spiderman was right, it does come with great responsibility, although I am not sure about the great power, though, more than the time allowed for me to take a 5 minutes drive home to swim on my lunch breaks.

In fact, the next 6 months are all almost planned out, and it looked heavy all sides.

I was ready to erupt (again), as series of urgent sms-es/emails and incessant deadlines. I was online scouting for a new job kahkahkah! But he being a good mentor, pulled me back. He knows how to avert disaster and keep his (ahem!) talent. 

Now I wondered what I was fussing about, when my BigBoss - the man who jokingly told us that writing letters are like wearing a bikini, can be such fatherly and teacher-ly. All I needed to do was coming up to him and be straight up on project issues, and it will be discussed rationally. Now, only if I could get him to talk about increment and bonus.

"I'd do the first thing last, and do the last thing first" - Steve Martin, 2010.

This feels like a love affair. There are times when we yelled at each other, I felt like punching him, and there are times when we share jokes and laughter like friends. I forgot how tiring a love affair is. 

And the late nights and tattered meals shows in my runs. Yesterday I was running KLCC, not picking up speed and wind after 4 laps. I was there early and wished I could hit 10 laps, but no poco-poco tunes fired me up, nor Ronnie with his new 2XU compression socks. 
Swims? What swims?

I have not seen clear runs this week - moving towards SCSM, which is due in 4 weeks time. Hope this weekend will pick up some warm air, and I could rise again. Having said that, I am proposing another go at Kinrara-Newton route LSD on Saturday, as follows;

Where : Kinrara, Puncak Jalil etc along the Newton-nasi lemak route
When : Saturday, 30 October 2010
RV : Aladdin Mamak, Bandar Kinrara 5 (I think)
What time : pounding time at 6.00 a.m.
Distance : I'd try to do 20k, but feel free to go beyond

I know, I know... Genting Trailblazer the day after. I just needed my back-to-back workouts to keep sane these days. Join me running super slowly, if you want to warm up for Genting Trailblazer.
