Ok so I’ve had moments where feel like I’m having a panic attack lately. I think it has to do with the fact that I’m a senior, I’m planning out my internship for the next semester, law school is after (hopefully) and with that comes how the hell do I pay for law school??? It’s just a combination of a lot of things. What’s getting me through is doing what my bff Joe says and I am “taking it one day at a time“. He’s very smart sometimes….. sometimes.
So other than my mid-mid life crisis I just finished my last cross-country race of my collegiate career. I’m not going to lie I started to choke up a bit giving my usual pump-up speech before the race. It’s hard to imagine that freshman year I ran like 38-40 min 6k and this past weekend I got my personal best of 31:38 for a 6k. I think that’s a good way to end my senior year, if I may say so.
I was talking with my coach after and I was telling him how I remembered how I sucked Freshman year and his response? “Yeah, you were really bad.” Hahah gee thanks Pete! I love that guy, but he needs to work on tact sometimes. I laughed because it was a Pete thing to say and its still funny because it was true.
Let’s see what is getting me through the end of my hectic semester? Training! Even though my season is done I plan to do the Plattsburgh Half Marathon for my 4th and probably final year. My goal this year is to hit 1:45 for a time. The first time I hit 2:14, the second time I hit 1:59, and last year I didn’t run it for time, but to finish with Kinga since it was her first time and I ran 2:16. So I think that with some proper training I can definitely hit 1:45. I asked Kris if he would make me a training schedule and he said that he will, so I am hoping that if I put in the work I’ll get the time I want.
Other than that I am still lifting and doing W.O.D.s on an every other day type basis. I want to keep my training different, I don’t ever want to get too comfortable doing any one thing. So that’s basically where I am right now. Not much else to report.
So unti later, TTFN.
Oh and I have to leave you with some McFly!
