Hi Guys I posted this late last night after everyone was off line but I thought it was worth sharing so here it is.
Mick I understand the change of plans and just adjusting and rolling with it. In life its just like football. You go up to the line with the play called. You look at the defense before the ball is snapped and oh no the opponent has the play covered. Then if you are smart you call an audible. Good job on calling an audible.
At work we try to teach our reps to be what we call audible ready. Field days, customer meetings, sales calls, and training sessions never go entirely as planned. So we teach them to be prepared to call an audible and adjust. Bill last night talked about the airplane being off course almost all the flight but still ended up at its destination.
Today I got to call an audible. When I went out to jump in the pickup to drive to the track it sounded like someone was torturing squirrels under the hood. Not a good start and was not able to do my morning HIT run. Long story short when I got it to the dealership this afternoon they declared the truck was DOA. (dead on arrival) It turned out that it was not tortured squirrels but my engine hampsters. I now have a rental.
SO how did my audible work? I made my morning appointments, came home and helped my son pack to go back to college, got his vehicle ready for the road (air in tires, gas, sand bags, etc), went back to work and moved late afternoon appointments to next week, got the pickup to the dealership, picked up the rental pickup, and went to the track at the gym at 7pm and got my HIT run in. A lot of shifting but got it all done.
Today is my long run day. We will see how long that is today since I have only been back running for 2 1/2 weeks. (Maybe 5 miles) Then cleaning, sorting, and putting up from the holidays. A trip to work on shooting and rifles and then a late evening run to Sam's and Costco to stock up on the fruits and vegies.
