My 2007 so far

Happy Belated New Year to everyone! Is it REALLY already the middle of January? I swear time passes by faster every year!

Anyways, I've got some new stuff going on that I thought I would share with you all. First of all, at work, they have internally posted for the clinical supervisor position, and I decided to submit my resume. This position has been vacant since the Spring when the former supervisor left and it has been really tough on the clinical team to be working without a supervisor. We've kind of been relying on each other to bounce ideas off 0f. In my opinion, whoever the new supervisor will be has big shoes to fill. Our last supervisor was awesome and she really knew her stuff. Plus, she had a clinical psychology Ph.D and lots of experience working in the field. I could go to her with questions or issues about my clients and feel confident that I would get good advice. It's weird because although I think I would be a good candidate, in comparison to her, I still have so much to learn! I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. If they do choose me, I'm planning to see if I can work 3-4 days per week until I'm done my Ph.D which will likely be around September (HUGE yay!!) and then move into the position full time. I'll keep you posted...

Right before Christmas, I got an email reminder that it's time to start thinking about registering for the 10K race coming up in May. I'm definitely going to enter and my goal this year is to beat last year's time. I'm in the process of planning out my training schedule. A friend from work who is a runner recommended the Runner's World magazine website that gives great training advice, schedules and tips for races of various distances, including the 10K. So I'm using some of the info there to come up with a master plan. Up until last week, we hardly had any snow so I was doing some runs outside, but this week, we got hit with snow and much colder weather, so I'm going to have to start planning some treadmill workouts. I have to say that overall, the last few months have sucked workout and nutrition wise, so starting to plan for this 10K has gotten me excited about shaping up again. I'm going to have to take some more dreaded before shots (sigh!) so that I can really see my progress over the weeks. Once my training plan is finalized, I will post it here.

I hope you are all doing well and keeping up with any resolutions you made :)

Hey there! I'm glad you're updating again! Good luck on the job! And good luck on training for the 10K! I've done 2 5K's so far, but thinking of doing a 5-miler in April. I'm kind of nervous just thinking about it.

Glad to hear you got the Christmas shopping done. I was starting to wonder...

I hope all goes well with the job. As I said before, from what I know, you'd be great at it and would do whatever you needed to get the skills you think you lack.

GREAT to see an update! That website is awesome, I used a training program on there to train for my 20K last year- definitely prepared me for it.

Good luck with the interviewing process! :)
