Finished yet another week at work. Our department has seen quite a bit of turnover in the last 6 months and especially the last 3 months. We have more people in our department with less than 3 months experience than with more than 3 months experience. So quite a bit of my day is spent training new people on how to do less than exciting things. Furthermore it means a lot of my own personal growth has suffered. There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel. We have a new manager starting in our department in a few weeks who is a Fellow of the CAS (Casualty Actuary Society) which means he’s smart.
On a more personal note, I’ve starting more regularly going to Master Swimming which is good ‘cus I’m going back for my college alumni swim meet in about a month and therefore hopefully I won’t embarrass myself too much. It will probably be somewhat of a somber reunion because one of our swimmers was battling cancer and unfortunately died far too young. He’ll definitely be missed.
To answer Ryan’s comment to my last post. My knee which I injured on an attempted bike trip along the east coast (with Ryan of course) last summer is fine after the biathlon. I will be going to an orthopedist (who comes recommended from a marathon runner I know) to check on what might be causing its less than ideal function. It did somewhat limit the amount of training I could do this triathlon season, mostly when I would run which is much higher impact it would flare up. Anyway, hopefully I will be able to get some answers and fix the problem.
