First Day of School!

Good morning friends! Today is my first day of nurse anesthesia school (I will be referring to this from now on as CRNA school because it’s much easier to type! CRNA stands for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist which is what I will be when I graduate and pass boards!) Anyway, I am super excited and nervous! I can’t wait to meet everyone!

I got up at 5:30 this morning so I could get a run in before my long day at orientation. I did a speed workout which included a 1 mile warm up, 4X400 at 7.0 mph(no clue what pace that is but it felt right for speed work) and about a 0.7 mile cool down to equal 3 miles. I did it on my treadmill mostly because I have no flat area around my house to do speed work on! There are hills everywhere! But it wasn’t so bad on the treadmill, this is probably the only workout I can tolerate on the treadmill because you are constantly changing something up and I don’t get too bored! Unfortunately there was nothing on TV but the news this early and I didn’t have any shows DVR’d that I needed to watch so the news it was! I love getting workouts in before long days!! Last week I totaled 17 miles and was happy about that! I haven’t logged that many weekly miles in a long time!

Well, I better get going so I’m not late! I am excited to wear a cute new dress today that I bought recently!! Hope everyone has a great Monday!
