Yes. In the back on my head I have a countdown to my bday. I used to have it physically written out but, well, as the years passed that stopped. As for my age? I’ll be 23. Real person age. It’s the age where ppl look at you differently because youre expected to have a real job, real life etc. and not be irresponsible. Like that will ever happen haha.
Thanks to everyone who said that I’m not old (which I do know it’s just that I’m the oldest by a bit compared to my friends as I took a gap year between high school and college) and that things get better as the years go on. I certainly hope so as I want life to improve constantly!
Re: running my age in miles. I had a meeting with my advisor earlier today and we were just chatting about life after the meeting was done and he suggested doing 23 km rather than miles. DUH! Why didn’t I think of that?! So much more do-able. I mean: A) my body is getting old heh and B) the rest of the world uses metric and so shall I.
Now that that’s settled onto the run at hand today. Unlike yesterday it was warm and cloudy. So naturally I overdressed. Not the biggest deal in the world but I also ended up running 10 miles so by the end I was pretty sweaty and gross (not exactly what I wanted to be going into Spanish class like). I actually had to change my clothes and open the windows when I got back to my room. It was only about 55* but coming off of a 28* morning yesterday…well let’s just say New England is known for it’s rapidly changing weather.
And unlike yesterday I didn’t fade at the end, sure my miles at the start were pretty slow but each one kept feeling stronger and stronger. Definitely a good thing and what (to me) qualifies a run “good”. Which is why I, yet again, expanded my miles this morning. My overall pace was literally one second per mile over “goal” which is annoying because if I had run 10 seconds faster I would have hit my goal. Grrrrrrr. 😛
Another grrrrrr has been my sleeping pattern. Lately I cannot string together a good night of sleep. Last night I couldn’t shut my brain up until about 0100 and then I was WIDE AWAKE at 0400. I simply laid in bed for the next couple of hours but man, does it suck hardcore.
Anyway. Another really busy day here and I’m just feeling “off”. Hopefully some productivity will change that?
