But damn it feels good to be a gangsta. Um, I mean, “Runna”
I ran 17 miles… on a treadmill. That’s pretty hardcore, in my opinion hehe. Actually, maybe not. I was entertained the whole way with a tv all to myself. I watched a tv movie, a detective program, informercials, celebrity gossip, and more I’m sure. I felt really strong though. It was fantastic. My legs were getting heavy toward the end, but my heart and lungs weren’t lagging. Hooray! Last year it was the other way around, where my legs were good to go, but I was out of breath (due to anemia, now fixed by taking regular iron pills). Though I’m kind of waddling around today, hehe. But I’m a runnin’ machine now. The San Diego Rock’n’Roll marathon is on June 1 and I will be ready!
My 17 miler was scheduled for this weekend and I usually do my long run on Saturday (recover on Sunday) but I worked two 12 hour days in a row on Friday and Saturday, so long run was no go. I spent 12 hours both days proctoring an Engineering exam (ELSES) and sat on my butt knitting and reading – the entire time. Even the comfiest chairs get uncomfy after 12 hours. But that’s a lot of good pay for us – this is going to pay for our beach house vacation!
Our school year in Juneau, Alaska is coming to a close. I’m kind of sad about it, but it’s been a great year. Fantastic, in fact. But when we go to San Diego we’ll be looking forward to renting a beach house for a few days or a week with our friends. I’ve always wanted to do that, and now that we’re adults with semi-regular incomes we can finally do it!
I’m almost done with Magnolia – I meant to finish it so much sooner, but work and school get in the way sometimes. I’m sewing the final sleeve cap right now, then all that’s left are the buttons! I will have pics for you soon :)
Hope you all had a great weekend :)
