Happy MARATHON Monday! Who else will be watching the race today? The Boston Marathon is such an awesome day for the running community and it’s a (very) longterm goal of mine to run it. However, I’m in no rush to get there.
Now, let’s catch up…
I sure hope your weekend was better than mine. My Saturday was spent entirely in bed minus a 20 minute trip to get a smoothie and watermelon to soothe my throat. I started feeling sick on Friday afternoon and woke up Saturday feeling worse, think chills, sweating and sore throat. I was oddly really hungry and ate like I ran 10 miles when I walked like 10 steps. I did catch up on a bunch of shows (How To Get Away With Murder finale…jaw dropped) and finished a paper that I put off. Luckily, as I write this on Sunday night, I’m feeling better. Being sick away from home (really, my mom), sucks.
Speaking of home, I’m going home Thursday! Excited is an understatement. I have a long gap until my exams start so I planned this trip as a post-class, pre-exam treat. Plus, let’s be real, there’s no way I’d really study that long for an exam.
Last week was really stressful, more so mentally than physically. I was relying on some things that were out of my control and it was an extreme test of my
lack of patience. Patience is something I really need to work on, in many different areas (dealing with traffic, long lines, waiting for someone to reply, food cooking, etc.). If anything, last week was a good lesson in learning to release control and let things happen when they happen.
It is officially too hot to function in Florida. Ok, that’s dramatic, but the heat has been brutal. I mentioned running outside but even sitting outside is rough. I sat outside by the pool for 25 minutes on Thursday before giving up. As everyone up north is gushing about the weather (rightfully so, you’ve had a rough winter and I WOULD NOT trade sides), I will be inside sitting by the A/C.
