Ahh Tuesday. Three classes, homework, hill run, and an MTEL prep class. A solid day. Tuesdays are hands down one of my busiest days of the week, but I always manage to squeeze everything in, including a delightful dinner of rice cakes and cheese in between my hill run and MTEL class (don’t worry- I eat more after class, and I’m always sure to fill up at lunch). A little after 4:30, I leave for the hill run, and the commute to the Commons is always a grab bag of chaos, which is just part of the excitement of taking public transportation in the evening. Then I run the hills. I’ve said this before, and I will say it again: hill runs are important. Facing the hills during a long run has become so much easier since I began doing hill runs. I have honestly noticed a difference, both physically and mentally. Having a history MTEL prep class from 7:00-9:00 certainly motivates me to run faster so that I make it back to school in time (always try to find motivation everywhere!).
Something that was very exciting about today was that it was still light out when I began running!! Soon enough, I’ll be running in shorts (Okay, maybe jumping the gun a little bit)!
Thank You Notes:
- Thank you to hill runs for physically and mentally preparing me for the marathon and for making me a better runner. As painful as they can be, I know how important they are.
- Thank you to Olympic coverage and commercials for being so motivating. The Olympic Games: Inspiring workouts everywhere- one inspirational montage at a time.
- Thank you to all of my readers, especially my international readers. I cannot get over how cool it is that people across the globe are reading my posts. I have a few friends studying abroad this semester, so I know who a few of you are, but seriously, who in Russia is reading my blog?! Thank you!
As of yesterday, I reached the halfway point of my $9,000 fundraising goal! Thank you to everyone who has donated to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which is such a great cause, and if you have not, follow the link below to donate! Thanks 🙂
