12.5 miles after my shift at 7:30pm to end a 10-week 100+ mile week streak with a 150 mile week. no big deal.

back by popular demand! the song of the day is “Nina Cried Power” by Hozier.

5 miles at 5:20am. tired and slow. could be from mileage, but more likely from sleep. i’ve been barely averaging 7 hours a night if that. i need to sleep more but balancing engineering classes, work, and running is tough, plus i need to find time to study for the MCAT. i’ll figure out a way to balance everything over the next week or two, but any semblance of free time is out the window.

10 miles at 7:20am. kept it honest on miles 3-9, especially on the uphills. last uphill(about 1.2 miles left) i felt my right achilles ache for a second so i stopped and stretched and took it easier for the rest. didn’t feel it again.

10 miles after my shift at 7:30pm. as i finished mile 10 i sank to my knees and pounded the grass in triumph. not something i’d do normally, but 125 miles in 4 and a half days... i don’t even know what to say. i’m beyond blessed to have such a capability for mileage.

5 at 5:30am.

10 at 7:20am. started off a bit quicker, and then during the second mile a bug flew at me in the opposite direction and hit me right under my right eye. it felt like i’d been shot point blank with a bb gun, i think it got it’s stinger imbedded because it took me a few seconds to realize it hadn’t flown away or moved at all, i had to pluck it off. still stings something awful, but i’m way too obsessed with my mileage to have let that stop me. took it easier because getting past the pain from that was enough effort. still ended up being a bit faster than yesterday. in better news getting gas set up in my apartment today so i can cook soon and get into a better diet.

10 miles at 5:50pm. fastest third run of the day so far! can’t believe i’m already at 400 for the month.

5 at 5:30am. one of the best things about my new apartment is it’s less than a third of a mile from a track; ran to it, on it, and back for 5. glad i finally woke up at 5, i may have to wake up a bit earlier or just get better at running as soon as i wake up, 30 minutes of boondoggling before the run isn’t time efficient. liked running in the dark; life is made up of little moments and sweating in the dark to “Careless Whisper” by George Michael are the type of moments to make it worth living.

10 at 8:20am. felt a little nauseous but besides that good. a good bit faster than yesterday.

10 at 6:30pm. ate too much lunch and felt sluggish, pace wasn’t though.

5 miles at 6:30am. didn’t wake up as early as i wanted to but still not bad, progress at least.

10 miles at 8:20am... on Sandy Rd! i haven’t ran it in about a month, it’s my favorite course out there but it’s brutal so it’s nice to get in better shape and come back and see how the tough parts get easier. nothing better for peace of mind than driving into the forest to run in the serene and secluded nature, plan on doing all of my second runs that aren’t track/grass workouts here. 40 miles in just a smidge over the last 24 hours!! i feel fine so that’s good. finished my 15 before 10AM.

10 after my shift at 7pm. the last few miles it was storming hard all around, but barely drizzling on intramurals. it was cool to be running in the dark and see the lightning illuminating the ground as it tore through the black sky.

5 at 9:00am.

10 at 11:20am. slept in so it was very warm for my first 15 today.

10 at 6:40pm. last half mile at around 6-flat pace since a real nasty storm was on the verge of hitting. bought a yoga mat for the new apartment so stretching and staying limber will be much more convenient.
