It’s Getting Hot in Hurrrr

I was doing some catchup on google reader when I read this post by Jameson over at TheLifeofaLibrarianinTraining. I really liked this post as I totally thought I was the only one in the world who acted beyond my years. Those are my words, as my friends describe me as old woman. I kind of agreed with everything written in the post and it made me happy that there is someone else like me who prefers to write letters over emails and hand write drafts of papers rather than use a computer. And I will forever refuse to use technology to do stuff that paper and pens work fine for, like my planner.  Any other takers?

I totally think that I had a major sleep-hangover when I got up this morning.  Rising for multiple days on 4.5 hours of sleep isn’t fun but after a while my body got used to it.  I was down right chipper last night going out with my friends.  And yes, I did use the word “chipper” when talking to them. And yes, they laughed wicked hard. Throw in a 9 hour night last night and that is a recipe for a wicked huge amount of tiredness.

But due to my type-A-ness I wasn’t going to skip my run today.  But the sleep hangover was so great that I didn’t leave my house until noon. I know I live in the NorthEast and it doesn’t get as hot as some places but after a really rainy spring/early summer today was brutal.  I may or may not be sporting something resembling a sunburn and I think I lost half my body weight in sweat.  Gross. And my body temp must have risen a bunch because I was extremely nauseous after and I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Now I’m just recovering by drinking water and putting my feet up.  I do have an MCAT book in front of me (did you really think I’d go a post without mentioning that silly test?) but I’m not really looking at it.  I’m really starting to get nervous about it.  Not the material itself but the fact that I have to wait until Wednesday to take it.  It’s kind of like waiting for a really important race to begin and get here; you just want to go-go-go and start because the waiting and anticipation of it hurts almost more that the actual event. And I say almost.  Let’s just wait and see what August 5th brings and whether I make it to the 6th.

Oh and another thing that might kill me? My appetite.  I don’t think I’ve been eating enough/the right stuff for the amount of running I’m doing.  I think this is stemming from not being in actual training mode but still running a lot so I don’t think about nutrition impacting my running as much.  I’m pretty sure that I can think of myself as *in training* now as I’m 99.99% sure I’m doing that race over labor day.  I just need to bite the bullet and register.



  1. Disney is 70% full…so you have a few weeks to convince yourself (and find the money if you’re like me!)

  2. Haha, all the running bloggers are talking about getting enough calories right now. We must be taking our mileage up, but I guess it’s about that time!

    Deep breaths, the MCAT will be over soon.
