Few runs behind the belt


Got me 2 runs behind the belt. haha. First one was 3.5 miles of sucking wind....it was BAD! thats what happens when you take two weeks off. The next one was a much more pleasant 4 miler. THANKKKKKK goodness! I'm going to basically be starting over and building my mileage back up. Tonight I'm going cycling as soon as it cools off a bit (HA ! ya right!). I've been thoroughly enjoying the new quarter (yes I finished finals friday and started school back up on Monday...had clinical 5:45am Monday morning and a presentation due later that day...what a break). LOVED having Tuesday off...randomly my husband and I both had Tues & Thurs off this week. Monday night I went and got sushi with a friend and we sat on the dock at my house and drank and watched the sunset over the water. It was breathtaking. I'm almost in disbelief that we are really getting a break this summer...it just doesn't feel real (keep pinching myself...starting to get red marks). I love having the new class here (lil kids as I call them...I'm sure they love it). I have off again tomorrow?! Like I said..I keep repeating it because I don't believe it. I barely feel like I'm in school minus the 22 hrs a week I spend in the OR and oh wait...another 12 in class...oh crap..and of course studying. But still...this is nothing compared to what I used to do. Ahhhhhh yes....runnin duff is loving life....SO MUCH that I was actually snapping my fingers to the music on the treadmill yesterday (embarassing) (and yes..i finally got smart and starting running inside instead of 109 F heat). HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!

How relaxing it must have been watching the sunset over the water! Glad to hear you are enjoying your break, hard work does payoff.

Slowly working your way back into running is a good idea. Enjoy your day off tomorrow with your husband.
