Training and school

So I've been doing some good training. I finally got up to 10 miles; it was slow and steady but I finished! My sister Jen, who is running my April 3 half marathon, has been pushing me to train which has helped my mediocrity! Today is supposed to be a 10 mile run, but it's rainy and gross; therefore the treadmill is a strong possibility which is SO unthrilling. UGH. 6 miles on the treadmill a couple of weeks ago was bad enough; 10 miles?! Almost 2 hours on a treadmill! NOOO!!! We'll see how this even progresses.

School: working/teaching is going well. I've been working "after-school" (Over time) because the pay is ridiculously good and the work is not hard at all. However, this adds 1 1/2 hours to my day, the usual 1 1/2 I use to go to the gym, so I'm really learning what it's like to have a 9-5 job vs. an 8:10-3:07 job!But otherwise it's going well. WE HAD ANOTHER SNOW DAY! It was too good to be true, I had the greatest time cooking, cleaning, working out, reading, it was amazing.

School: College/graduating. I got my grad info yesterday. I'm going to walk for graduation! YEA! I just have to finish this DARN pesky paper! It's looming and I'm slacking. This week I need to step it up. I have to collect a TON of data, which I've been doing semi-annually, but I should be doing it daily. So I'll step it up.

Ok, many goals for this week: Consistently research/collect data. Type it up. Also run 3-4 times this week.

Of to church and to meet my friend's new MORKIE puppy!

This has been a very busy winter!

Just one of MANY pictures of the Bahamas! All in all it was a successful trip. Ran 3 out of 6 days on the old treadmill, but it felt good! Also did a 5 mile walk into "town"! My training has been alright, running about 3 times a week. I crossed the 10 mile mark on Sunday for a long run! School and college and life has been busy. So sorry to leave you all in the dark...but I'm not even sure anyone reads this anymore since I've gotten so bad at posting! All this to say, I'm running, 1/2 marathon is 3 weeks from tomorrow! Watch out world! More posts to follow!
