Rain, Rain Go Away!!

The rain sucks! I had to switch my runs around due to this stupid rain! Haha it’s not THAT big of an incontinence but I had my heart set on a 6 miler today and not speed work…but gotta be flexible!!

I had my alarm set for 5:30 and for some reason I woke up at 4:30 and heard the pounding rain. I quickly decided that the rain cancels my long run and I will do speed work today on the treadmill. The only good thing about this is I can sleep in longer because I’m doing it inside! So I set my alarm for 6:30 and went right back to sleep!!

My workout went GREAT! I tried to do a speed workout similar to the ones I will be doing in my training program and this is how it went:


6 X 400 with 90 sec RI

Cool down

According to my FIRST plan, my 400’s should be done in 2:12. So it took a few tries on the treadmill to figure out what speed would give me that time and I figured out it’s 6.7mph. So I will remember that from now on in case I have to do indoor speed work again!! It ended up being a total of 4 miles with the warm-up and cool down.

I love speed work, makes you feel like you worked so hard!! While I was doing this speed work, I had Saved By The Bell on! LOVE that show! I watched half an episode where Jesse was taking the caffeine pills and going crazy and the girls were making a music video! Is it sad that I could sing the whole song they were making the video to? “I’m so excited, I’m so excited…” haha. I could watch that show over and over and could probably recite the lines from all the episodes!! What shows are you like that with?? For me it’s Saved By The Bell and the old 90210!

The cadaver lab last night was just how I thought it would be… AWFUL! It’s so weird seeing freshly dead bodies. Gross. Apparently they don’t embalm them at this place so it didn’t smell at first. But when my teacher started cutting and pulling out the lungs and heart, that smelled awful!! Sorry for the nasty details:) I stayed so far away and didn’t want to touch anything the whole time! The techs in there were laughing at my face because I constantly had a disgusted look on it! Haha, I couldn’t help it! Don’t worry, I wasn’t the only one making these faces! I’m just glad I will be up by the head behind the curtain once I become a CRNA! Ha!

I will be studying for the rest of the day…fun fun… Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!


  1. Have fun studying!

  2. ... I'm so... scared!


  3. That's the episode of Saved by the Bell that always seems to be on! "I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so excited!"
    The dead body thing would be weird once it's starting to get all cut up.

  4. Ewww! When I was in Anatomy we had to watch a live autospy, there were several times I thought I would pass out!! I hated that class. Oh and I used to watch Melrose Place, lol

  5. I used this website to figure out what I need to set the treadmill on to do my speed workouts for the FIRST plan. I like doing them on the treadmill so that I can make sure I run the right pace and don't slack! :)
