Its only alittle past 7:30pm, and I'm SO ready for bed! Today was busy, but good overall. Tomorrow will be even crazier. I switched my work shift so that I could pace one of my Thursday night run club friends in a half marathon tomorrow. I'm not really sure what is in store pace-wise other than the fact that he wants to negative split it. This will be great practice for me too! Anddd, he is getting me a free jacket from the race! Score! Moral of the story is, I will be up at 4:30am to get to the race (starts at 7am). Thennn, I have to be back to work by 11:30am-7:30pm. And then, I need to drive home to my parents' house to cat sit for the night. It will be a long, but hopefully fun day!
But first, today! I worked a super short shift at the bakery today (6am-10am) so I had a window of time to run before rushing off to teach. I knew I had an hour tops, and I wanted to maximize my distance in this time- enter my 8 mile loop! I almost squeeked it in (1:00:15). In hindsight, I probably should have chilled out on the pace because my quads were alittle tired from yesterday night's tempo and I want to have my A-game to pace my buddy tomorrow. Oh well. I really wanted to do a second run, but because of forementioned reasons, went to the pool after teaching tonite. My swim was pretty bad, honestly. I hate going to the Y after work because it is crowded. And, today I had to pee and was very hungry halfway through my swim. I totally could not find my groove and felt like I was swimming through quicksand. Oh well. They can't all be great, can they?
Ok, honestly, I am going to bed now. And I'm OK with it. These pre-5am alarms start to catch up to me!
