What a fucking day

  • Started grad school
  • Got the online job I wanted ($$$ and working from home hell yes)
  • Got the internship I wanted at the coolest place EVER (also virtual so working from home, heyy convenience)

This whole quitting my job to go back to school thing is looking prettyyyy okay. Probably pushing all of this week’s runs back a day though as my stomach isn’t behaving at all right now!

We had good runs and bad runs, races and walks. Lots of PRs. Two marathons together!! I will always love you buddy. Thanks for all your help! 

Yes I am saying bye to my watch. It is getting sent to be fixed but they said it would probably just be replaced instead.

BAA Half Marathon week 5 workout 5: 8 mile ‘long’ run. Done at 9:58 pace, a little slower than I would have liked, but I guess that’s what happens when you don’t have your pace constantly in your face. No Garmin, but I decided to try to get it fixed instead of getting a new one. It’s $60 vs $100+++ (depending on what I got). Hopefully I won’t be without it for long, and they are able to repair it! Also these pics are not from my run, they are from a hike with the puppies we did today!

BAA Half Marathon week 5 workout 2: “sprint” intervals, 7x400 at 5k pace.
This is that minus some warmup and cooldown. Goal was to have them all under 2:00, which I definitely did! The fastest was 1:52 I think and the slowest, 1:58. I rewarded myself by downloading the latest T Swift song and listening to it on repeat as I walked my cool down home (it is SO GOOD. That woman speaks to me). I was going to post the intervals themselves but this is the Garmin issue I’m having: my Garmin charger had always been very touchy and hard to get it to charge or connect to the computer sometimes. However, now three times in the last couple months, it has done this thing that, when almost completely charged, I plug it into the computer to upload the data. Instead, it never connects, the watch turns off, and won’t turn on for a few days!! That makes no sense, right? Has anyone else experienced this?
