Wednesday through to Friday was just a usual week at work. We are currently recruiting for new team members and so I was interviewing on Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday our friends came over again for the evening. Laura, Zoe and Ed and as per usual, we enjoyed the get together with a drink or two. I like these evenings as we can chat with our mates, but the TV doesn't get switched on at all - a TV free night.
Thursday was just another day in the office, and in the evening it was pleasant enough for Lisa and I to go for a run together. We planned a longer run than the previous couple of weeks, but as we were out running decided to do just a 5k, my knee was a little sore (probably due to lack of running) and Lisa was due to go out. Again it's good to get out and have a run, especially when it's a nice evening to run; little wind, warm but not hot and definitely not raining. Lisa lives about 2 minutes away, just enough to sprint back to mine and feel out of breath to finish off the run. This short sprint (probably about 300m - although I really should measure it) is the way I finish most of my runs and I enjoy the sprint finish!!
The last working day of the week went by without incident. As it was Rob's last day before leaving the team to join the tech side, we finished early around four and three of us, Rob, Matt and myself, went out for a drink to the local pub near work. We sat in the sun for a while until it got too cold then we went inside. Unfortunately the whole team wasn't there but it was a good idea to go out for a drink after work - I could get used to this!!
This last week I have felt much better and stronger, sometimes I forget that I am actually having Chemo and take medication daily. It's easy to forget as I feel great, much healthier than before. The first week after Chemo is difficult, it does get easier and although I do feel tired I also feel like I could take on the world, it's strange to feel tired but also full of energy at the same time.
