Another 12-miler.

Well, the legs haven't fallen apart yet, so maybe this mileage thing is still doable. Might get a few 4 milers in the afternoon along with the morning 12, but with finals coming up I probably won't focus on mileage uptake until those are over. Still, 84 miles is no easy feat! I'm happy I've made it this far. I'll be starting my hospital job after finals, I'll be working in the cardiac department.

Nice mileage this week Eugene! Awesome to see that you are getting in some good, solid training runs. Also that is cool that you are going to start working in a hospital. Is it like an internship, or did you do some type of program in cardiac training to get the job?

I think the best way to put it is it's a no-pay job i'm working like a paid job so I can get a paid job.

Wow! If you get another 4 miles in today, you might just become the top on the mileage chart this week.

I had my semifinal 800m race yesterday.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to advance to the final. I did improve my time though. I ran a 2:21.11. I still need to get a qualifying time of 2:20 to go to the prefectural championships in September. My next chance is on May 18th and 19th. These runners are just too fast for me. The winner of my heat yesterday ran a 2:14.36. I can't compete with that.

Later in the day yesterday, I ran the 1500m. I ran a 5:02.4. That is way off the qualifying mark of 4:50.

When are your finals? Hope you do well. You job at the hospital sounds interesting. Good luck in that.

You are an inspiration to me Eugene!
