Seriously guys…. pure recovery runs are THE BEST. Yesterday, after an early dinner at 4:30 (or is that a late lunch?) I was super full and tired of studying. So thanks to wonderful old Spring time where it stays light until 9pm, at 7ish I was able to dash off on a run!
Oh it was so so wonderful… I did not bring my GPS watch, but just simply timed a new route. It was easier this time to keep a slow, steady pace and not have to concentrate so much on maintaining that speed. It was a perfect warm evening, and I got to run about 5.5 miles in pure bliss!!
Why did no one tell me how great they are!? I would have started them long ago…
Well, this week is is full swing. FINALS ARE UPON ME. Surprisingly though, I am not at all in panic mode. I am very calm, very focused. But I also have been sleeping, eating, and still fitting in workouts. This is a great improvement from last semesters finals week. Seriously. At one point I truly didn’t think I would make it. Touch and go for a while there guys…
So, I have to cross a train track multiple times a day. Almost never do I actually have to stop for a train. But today, I heard the whistle, and I so badly wanted to cross the tracks in case it was a long one (I hate waiting… I mean who does, right?).
So naturally, I tried to out-run the train. I could hear it and I could feel it getting closer as I and my 50 lb backpack awkwardly fast-jogged to the stairs that cross the track.
I was super close….but I didn’t make it.
I actually have never stood this close to a train as it comes flying by. Actually very scary. It felt like the earth was rumbling and ready to erupt. I really was very close to leaping past it. But that would have been VERY. DUMB.
**Can I really randomly bring up the fact that Fast and Furious 6 is coming out? I mean what?? At what point do you end a franchise? I remember being shocked when F&F 4 came out… and now we are at 6? It is like that movie Land Before Time… or the NOW! cd’s… I think they are on like NOW! 55 or something.
Have you guys seen any of the F&F movies?
Ever had a close encounter with a train?
