I am loving running. Every run isn't great, and some runs hurt my face because of the whole being below freezing thing, but I'm just loving running and training right now.
I may have tweeted something along these lines yesterday after a brief two miles around Central Park to round out the 2.5 I'd run at Finish Line for my training plan's called-for 4.5 miles.
Lately, even when the runs are kind of hurting for some reason (cold, pushing the pace, etc.), I just feel good. I think this may have to do with increasing my mileage so running feels less difficult. Whatever it is, I'm really enjoying this training cycle so far.

|it also helps when I can come back from speed work and eat this. well, half of this. |
stupid boyfriend wanting dinner. sheesh.
I'm sure there will be plenty of downs to come since there are still quite a few weeks left in this training cycle, but right now I'm just enjoying my runs and the increased mileage that I'd thought would be so tough. It's kind of a surprise, honestly, but I think it helps that I always feel so encouraged and inspired by the running community on Twitter and in real life.
Basically, I'm crushing on running. Real hard. We're close to Valentine's Day, and despite my feelings about that particular holiday, it's the perfect time for a crush. Right?
So about that credit card charge yesterday...
Thanks so much for the concern yesterday about that $4,000 charge! I was able to have it credited back to my card and then billed to my firm relatively quickly, so no harm no foul. It was just a lot of money to be worried about on a Wednesday morning! (Thursday mornings, of course, I could care less about $4,000. Obviously.)
In case you're curious, (you probably aren't but oh well) here's how law school works for those who have jobs lined up at NYC corporate law firms for post-graduation. I'll graduate in mid-May and have about 10 days before my bar review course starts.
Then, I'll spend June and July studying for the bar exams, and the bar review class and homework take up 8-10 hours a day.
|this will be me from June through July. |
I'd pretend I'd be better dressed , but let's be honest... no. I won't be.
And that, ladies and gents, is my next 8 months in a nutshell.
I need help! Have you been to Montreal or Quebec?
If you've been to either city, I would LOVE to get your recommendations! Where should we eat? Where can I run? What should we see?
If you're training for something, are you enjoying your training? Do you have travel tips for me? Help!
