Had a weekend of running, NICE WEATHER!!, and trying to figure a few things out. I made a list of schools I might want to transfer to and I’ll start doing the research in the coming months and working on applications for the fall. And we are trying to sort out everything with physically moving back and getting all our stuff out and moving the dogs, etc. I haven’t even had my meeting with my supervisors yet (it’s tomorrow) so I still don’t know what I’m going to be doing to wrap up my time with the university and the timeline for that. But I’m Type A and I like to be prepared haha.
Yesterday was my long run day, but I dutifully listened to my training program which told me to run only 10 the first 2 long runs. It didn’t feel “long” but it was really nice not feeling the anticipation and everything of the REALLY long runs and working out fueling and all that. It was short enough that I got to just run without thinking which I love. NB: I don’t take water or fuel unless I’m running at least 13 or it’s hot out. It’s a very arbitrary number, I don’t know why I chose that number but it works for me. I have gatorade or nuun waiting in my car for me the instant I finish.
Came back and watched the World Indoor Championships in my Pro Compression socks. Thrilled for the Chanelle Price victory, sad that Bernard Lagat didn’t win after his awesome performance at USA Indoors. I LOVE watching track and field meets, marathons, whatever. Massive inspiration and always makes me want to go running right that instant.
I apologize for no pictures today, my phone will not send any of the pics I took yesterday and I don’t know why. I shall give you gratuitous pictures of random things:
