Did some big ring work. My trainer is squeaking like crazy unless I have it at a super high resistance. I can't get the thing to shut up! Legs felt a bit of the fatigue from yesterday's run, but overall, not bad!

  • 48m 10s
  • 6.20 miles

6x100meter strides. I didn't get any of the rubbery feeling, just some fatigue from the long run. Great pace, though, so I must not be too tired!

  • Yoga
  • 25m

My body was too tired to hold any poses. I really, really suck at yoga.

I've got another 2 day work week! Off to another tundra, otherwise known as Minnesota for yet another interview. Good thing I like to talk, or else this would be really tedious by now! It looks like I'll be in CO from March 6-8th, which I'm really looking forward to. When the time comes, this is going to be a really tough decision!

This week:

  • Wed: AM:12mi w/7mi @1/2 mary pace (maybe slower) PM: swim?
  • Thurs: AM swim, bike 1 hr, leave for MN
  • Fri: 12mi *depending on how tired I am, might move this to Sat and ditch the 5mi run
  • Sat: 5mi *
  • Sun: 20mi (in the cold, snowy tundra :) )

Friggin rainy, cold and windy. I wish I had woken up to run last night! Oh well, decent run regardless. I'm soaked, so I might as well go swimming! :)

I made it to the pool!!! For my first swim in well over a month, it was awesome! I really don't hate swimming as much as I think, I just hate the act of getting to the pool.

So I normally have a whole ton of energy, but when I crash, I crash hard. Apparently, getting only 4-6 hours of sleep, running about 8 miles a day, and interviewing with a whole crap load of people gets me suuper tired. Last night, I got home from the airport at about 4:00, hung out with Ryan for a bit, and ended up falling asleep at 5:30 for the ENTIRE NIGHT. That would be 14 HOURS of sleep! Holy crap! I have never slept that long in my entire life. Anyways, needless to say, I didn't make it out on my 14 miler yesterday. Good thing I have today off! I'll head out soon, now that I'm nice and rested!

On another note, I got an invitation to interview at the University of Colorado at Boulder, so I'm extremely excited about that! Looks like I'll be heading back to CO pretty soon!

I woke up a bit later than I wanted, so I had to cut it short by .5mi. Oh well. Found a route along the river that was really pretty, that is, when my eyelashes weren't frozen shut. 3 degrees out, lovely. But, like all you midwesterners say, if you're cold, it's cause you're not dressed properly. I added a few 100meter strides to keep my blood pumping.

The interviews yesterday went really, really well, and I like UM a lot. Hopefully they liked me too! The program is really awesome and I like the faculty and their research a lot. I think I can convince Ryan to live in Ann Arbor, but don't tell him how cold it is ;)

Rest day.  Damn, it's cooold in Michigan :) 

 Interviews all day, and with all the goodluck sent my way, I'll know they'll be great :)  I heart BT.

Recovery run.

3 am is waaaay too early to get up and run. Off to catch my flight to Michigan! It's supposed to be 71 today in San Diego, and 17 in Ann Arbor- lovely!

Have a great weekend everyone!

5x600m @5k pace, 90sec in between. My '5k' pace wasn't fast enough- only got down to a 6:33-6:50min/mile. I have to work on getting faster at shorter distances. Overall, great run. My legs aren't too sore anymore.

Busy day of packing and getting ready for my interview at Michigan.  I'm more nervous about this one than the last 2 because I really like their program, and they are at the top of my list.  It should be a fun weekend, though, assuming I don't get snowed into Ann Arbor!

Oh yeah- I found a serious running pic of me from the race that is now in my album.  Don't laugh!
