For a Wednesday, today has been pretty darn good. I’m just going to keep moving forward and get myself to break. I can do it!
This morning was pretty chill. I made an easy breakfast because I didn’t feel like making anything too complicated:
Because I use the Whole Foods peanut butter without any sugar, I like to add honey to my peanut butter toast.
French toast coffee
After breakfast, I had class from 10-1. It was a pretty boring three classes. I’m ready to just get finals over with!
Lunch with Allen, then I did some work on my multimedia project before heading out to run.
My run was a 30 minute tempo run. Since my 5k was 25:39, I’m running my tempos at 8:30/mile. So today I did 1.75 miles out-and-back on the trail. I finished in 29:56, so right on target! Because I don’t have a Garmin (someday!) I don’t know what my pace was each mile, but I felt like I kept things pretty consistent.
After my run, I did a short cool down walk and then went back to my room to stretch.
I took a nice long shower this afternoon. Sometimes after my run, I just want to get in and out, but other times I like to relax in the hot water. Usually the decision is made for me by the temperature of the water on that given day! It’s so temperamental. Today it was warm enough for a longer shower.
I broke out the good lotion today:
I had dinner with Dylan and then we had an event for our learning community. We brought in some graduate students to talk about their experiences. They were really good! I learned a lot about graduate school. Very interesting.
Right now we are having a holiday contest in our building between the floors. Each day this week there is a different competition and the floor with the most points at the end of the week wins a holiday party. My floor is doing an awesome job, and made this beautiful bulletin board last night:
Tonight I am finishing up my multimedia project and watching Criminal Minds and Nashville. Getting really excited for the weekend…it couldn’t come soon enough.
