Good morning everyone! Happy Saturday to ya’ll!! I had a hard test yesterday in my Anesthesia class, that I had been studying for literally all week. I feel like I did pretty good though! Guess we will see! Unfortunately, I have my LAST Anatomy test on Monday so I had to come home from class yesterday and immediately start studying for that. And, that’s what my WHOLE weekend will consist of, especially all day today. I want to keep an A in that class so I need to be really well prepared for this test! But, I am SOOOO sick of studying! At least after this test on Monday I am off school for a week and a half! Yay!!
I had planned on doing my long run, 12 miles, today, but that didn’t really go as planned! I really wasn’t into it mentally, AT ALL! I slept in, because I didn’t want to get up and run. And once I got up, I played on the computer, reading blogs to procrastinate this run even more! And then, when I finally talked myself into putting clothes on and attempting this run, my Garmin wouldn’t turn on! So I spent a good while reading the handbook trying to figure out what to do! Luckily, I just had to reset it and it started working! So, I finally pushed myself out the door and from my first footstep all I could think about was “I don’t want to do this” over and over! After about 2 miles of this, I decided this run just wasn’t going to happen today, so I decided I would attempt again tomorrow and just finish this run as a 3 miler.
I think this was a really good decision because if I continued on, this run would have just been awful with the attitude I had about it. So, hopefully tomorrow will be better. I’m getting up early, because I seem to do better running when I’m up super early to do it! Haha! I think I am just burnt out on training! I still love running but the “training” part I’m sick of. Does that make sense?? I’m glad my race is almost here! Dec. 5th! I think my training plan was just too long but I will critique that after the race! Does anyone else ever get like this at the end of training plans?? I signed up for a Turkey Trot 4 miler for Thanksgiving, so at least I have that to look forward to next week!
Tomorrow we are doing Thanksgiving with one of Al’s grandparents and that side of the family, so that on top of a 12 miler is not going to leave me with a lot of study time so I have a ton to do today! Al has requested I make those PB cookies again to bring tomorrow because they were so good! He ate most of them! He would eat like 6-8 cookies at a time! Haha! So, I will be making those again today!
What are ya’ll doing this weekend? Anyone else going to Thanksgiving this weekend? I think it’s kinda fun because I still have his other side of the family and my family to do on Thursday! So it’s like 3 Thanksgivings! Good thing I’m a runner! Haha :)
