This week, I experimented with getting up at an hour of the morning that Shall Not Be Named so I could get my runs in on flat ground before work. The transition to an ungodly wake-up call wasn’t quite as seamless as I might have liked – there were definitely some snooze button issues and an old-fashioned case of AM/PM mixup – but by Thursday it actually worked for me. Which means I have high hopes for this week.
I also found out my work schedule for my next internship that starts in two weeks. The great news is that I’ll have to leave the house at about the same time that I do now, so I won’t have to completely refigure my running schedule just as soon as I get it figured out. That is, no joke, a significant worry off my chest. Whew.
Thursday: 4 miles
Saturday: 5 miles
Sunday: 5 brutal, muddy, awesome trail miles
Total for the week: 14 miles
