Okay, yeah, that’s not a real award. But, if it were….I’d get one. 😉
I was doing better in June, but then I went off the rails again. I blame it on my 10 miler. See, it takes a long time for me to write a race recap, and writing quick posts was the thing that was getting me back on track.
So, after nearly a month, this is going to be big race recap, right? Haha..no. I still haven’t really written it. Maybe I’ll get a quick version up sometime this week. (Just try not to plan your week around it, okay?)
This morning, I went for my first run in over a week. July has been super busy. First, work was crazy with the end of the quarter, and I’ve also been in super study mode. My third actuarial exam was this past Monday. I passed! WOO! Seriously, it was such a relief. I failed this test in March, and even though I studied very hard and knew the material as well as I could, I was still very nervous. When work is super busy, I actually feel more motivated to go running. But when I’m studying, I like to get started early in the morning, and then I get caught up in it, so it’s more difficult to get a run in. It’s strange that the two situations would have opposite effects on my running, but there you have it.
This morning’s run was very humid. And when I was in the sun, it was surprisingly hot for pre-8AM. I know it’s the middle of July, but it seems like the summer weather hasn’t really been consistent until recently.
I ran 2.5 miles this morning. The past two summers I’ve been marathon training, and would have been doing a MUCH longer run at this point, but I didn’t even feel bad about it. The weather was fine for 2.5 miles, but would have been awful to run in for hours. Plus, I had things to do today, so finishing up before 8AM was great.
My plan for this week is to run the same 2.5 mile route that I ran today every morning before work (or most mornings). I don’t have to start studying for my next exam for at least a month or two, so I may even get some posts up.
Thanks for putting up with all my nonsense. 😛
