I taught myself to run before learning to walk.

I should probably stop sleeping in and doing my 17-20 mile runs in 90+ degree weather.

Today I dropped a class. And it feels good.

16 hours of science classes plus everything else I try to do was not going to work.

Sometimes you have to be a little less ambitious and just enjoy things. Because if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’ll lose the excitement that made you ambitious to begin with, and drive your physical and mental self into exhaustion. 

To those people who are able to endure intensive workloads and deprive themselves of sleep in order to achieve their goals, I give you props. But I’m going to sit on my floor and watch netflix now because I find it very necessary.

20 miles this morning! Which is the longest I’ve done in a few months.
I’m still kind of training like I’m doing he 40 miler I’m signed up for in about 6 weeks, but I’ll probably downgrade and do the marathon. Especially after seeing how difficult the course is and realizing I will have very scarce free time once school starts. I never thought I would go this direction, but I think I might be getting to where I’m over the super-long distance thing and would rather go fast instead of long. Less pain, less time, and more actual health and performance benefits. But we’ll see.
Now the rest of the day is packing to move tomorrow. Gonna move out of my quiet childhood home and into a house near school with four roommates and a giant pitbull. So I’m pretty excited. Hopefully I won’t be too exhausted by the end of today.

Have a lovely day everyone :)
