- Had a Great Workout! I had such an inspiring workout on Tuesday! Although my usual workout is really boring and includes the whole speed walk and jog thing, I took it up to another level and it felt really good! I actually jogged two whole miles (without the walk break) at 5.8 on the treadmill. I didn’t want to stop because I felt good and was actually breaking a good sweat! Nothing was hurting but I was already pushing it so I had to bring myself back to reality and turn it down to 4.0 and walk it out for a couple of minutes. I am hoping to be able to maintain this same pace for the remainder of the week and get a little more mileage in this week. I needed this encouragement as I head to an Expo to pick up my goodie bag for a race I will not be able to participate in on Saturday.
- Vacation Time Starts Tomorrow!! Today is my last workday for the week and I will be on vacation until Wednesday! I am kind of excited because I feel like I need a little break. I didn’t realize how the whole “not being able to run thing” has impacted my life. The moment I feel like everything in my life is going okay, the whole running thing pops into my mind and just makes me sad. I am looking forward to spending time with my family and maybe taking a little road trip. Easter dinner is traditionally at my house but this year I am breaking that tradition because I need a break from all the cooking and cleaning. I really want to try this amazing Easter Champagne Brunch at the Queen Mary in Long Beach but it’s incredibly pricey ($59.95 per person) but sound really good. Maybe once I get back to running I can give it a try because after putting on two pounds last week, it’s probably not a good idea!! For those of you who are from California, have you ever tried this brunch at the Queen Mary?
- I Am Still Waiting on My Final Grade! I am still patiently waiting for my final grade to see if I will finally have that Master’s degree!! The professor told us that we would find out some time in mid April but I was sure hoping that I would find out sooner than that. I look for my grade everyday but it still says “RP” which I think means "Report in Progress." I guess the students are given this as a temporary grade until the final grades are posted. HURRY UP ALREADY!! I sure hope I passed!
Have a great weekend!! Any special plans for Easter Sunday?
