Long run, nothing special besides being the 5th longest run of my life I believe. Tough, but not as tough as last week since I did my PM course twice instead of the killer hills past 5.5 out. The inner lining of my shorts and my inner thighs were not on good terms by the end

5 on RV in the morning, by that I mean 11AM, and that was still following my routine of roll out of bed and run. Looks like I'm gonna have to make a sacrifice in much less staying out late with friends, maybe going as far as an 8PM bedtime. Hopefully I can figure out a way to space out my second run where I'm still recovered enough for the long run tomorrow morning, if not I guess I can push it back a day. Felt a bit stiff the first mile or so from last night, good by the end. 

9 after class. Felt good - good enough to run it twice tomorrow? Who's to say.

5 in the morning-ish. Slept in a bit, my body was wrecked from the weekend, but my legs weren't any worse than the rest of me, and I felt better as I went on. Had a homeless guy come up to me after. Normally I don't give in to soliciting, but his story had a lot of similarities in trials I've endured, and even though I didn't get much help in them I know how much it'd have meant to me for someone to, so I bought him breakfast. Was worth the few dollars to see his face light up. On the drive home I thought about a way to try and minimalize homelessness. The best solution I can think of is a non-profit housing service where you're provided food and housing for doing work for the house itself, whether it be cooking, cleaning, etc. All things that benefit the house itself(maybe community service as well to try and provide minimal funding). I hope one day to found something like that. I'd probably have it double as rehab too, at least in that there'd be no drugs allowed and you'd have the resources to get clean if the withdrawals directly affect your health. Really just hate that we all get one chance at life and some people have to live it in such painful conditions

9 in the afternoon. Legs felt GOOD - the weekend got shaken out of them more quickly than I thought they would. Left arch started to ache a bit at the end, luckily I got insoles in my trunk like lil nas x got horses in the back

Tried waking up before my shift. Didn't happen. A good lesson in life - sometimes you have to put yourself out there to get chances for opportunity - After my shift yesterday we were all looking at the schedule, and realized we were super understaffed for today. I wasn't supposed to work, I'm an unpaid volunteer that's only supposed to work 4-hour shifts once a week(I overachieved and started with 2, then asked to get my Saturday shift extended from 4 to 7 hours), but I offered to spend my Sunday doing an 11-hour shift unpaid. All the nurses and PCT's were so grateful that they all told the head of hiring for the hospital they need to get me hired, since I'm so devoted and they're understaffed anyway. Haven't gotten the offer yet, but also haven't submitted my application, and it's sort of the "apply and you got the job" type deal, or at least they're making it sound like it. On top of all that I managed somehow to get 9 in after the shift and I think I'm gonna die lol. So hype because volunteering for a hospital is good on a med school application, but having worked at a hospital already is a big deal. Plus almost no volunteers get hired, and it took me less than a month to(hopefully) get the offer. What a great day
