On the Run

Today has been a surprisingly productive Saturday. I’ve gotten a lot done despite not feeling too busy.

I was up around 7:30 on my own this morning after a pretty good night’s sleep. I got up and watched the Today Show with my pre-run breakfast of toast with butter and applesauce.

I stalled on my run for a LONG time this morning. I had the luxury of time, so I got some good chemistry homework done while I waited for the temperature to warm up. I’m at a point during the year where I really refuse to run in pants. It’s SHORTS time.

Luckily it warmed up just enough for me to get away with running in shorts and a long-sleeved shirt.

I was feeling really strong and managed to average about 9:25 min./miles. I know I said I’d try to run slower on my easy days but since I was feeling good I just went with it.

After lunch I headed back to campus because I had some spring staff training at 2 p.m. It was preparation for next fall’s student staff members. Most of the information we went over was just review for the returning staffers.

At 5 p.m. I got to meet my new staff for next year, which was super exciting! It seems like a really great group, and I think we’re going to work well together.

After the meeting I headed back over to Allen’s apartment to make some dinner! Veggie fried rice:
