Wednesday 8/26/15

Up at 4:40am for a 5-mile treadmill run in the basement. 1% incline for .5 mile, 3% incline for .5 mile, etc. Upped the speed every mile. This is my usual type of treadmill run. Pouring in sweat, but I felt really good and even danced through the last mile to a good song without falling off the treadmill. Mission accomplished. 5 miles 7:14/mi pace.

Worked the 24 in North Conway and ended up doing 3 Maine Med transfers that started in the morning and ended around 3am. I drove there and back for the first 2, but after driving over the third time, I was all done. The eyes can only handle so much driving. For the first time in almost two years that I've been partners with Michelle, she actually insisted that she was driving home and not me. I was that bad off. I even had trouble backing into the parking spot at MMC. A few Portland Fire guys were making fun of me as I tried to back in by pretending I had hit them, but I didn't even care. Ha ha. As long as I didn't hit one of the two cement pillars I was squeezing in between, it didn't matter. I didn't even know what they were doing until after I had parked. :) EMS=thick skin.
Maine Med ER Ambulance bay at 1:30am
I was actually able to sleep a little bit on the way back. Not very soundly, but it was something. We got back around 3am, and I went right to bed. Slept for 3 hours until I had to get up to shower before my 10-hour shift in Tamworth.
