Welcome to my 6th year of college. Have I mentioned that just plan on becoming a professional student for life?
This semester I am taking: (pre-requisites for some Allied Health Professions)
- Anatomy II
- Medical Terminology
- Sports Nutrition
- Interpersonal Communications
Thankfully, I now go to school less than 5 miles away from my house so I can always run back home for lunch or a nap.
I made a Eggplant Pizza from Trader Joe’s. Whole Wheat bread + TJ’s Garlic Eggplant Spread. So. Good.
Soo, I know that I have been going on a lot of power walks lately, but what about running?
I have not had an actual run since around June (took time off to fast ect)! So I sent out a super dramatic tweet and set out for a 2 mile jog around the lake.
I absolutely love running/walking the paved trail near my house. The views are amazing as well as the people. I will have to say, runners have some sort of a secret language. When I am out walking the trail most people don’t even glance my way. However, when I am jogging I usually always get a smile, wave or a nod from a fellow runner.
I love the support!
Also, my run was AWESOME! I was able to jog most of the 2 miles and I think I only walked about .5 miles. It felt so good to be moving and pain free, I have to thank my core for that. Yes, that makes me hardcore. Thanks Victoria.
The running/walking group I joined starts on Thursday and I feel like I am set for my time trial. I was a bit nervous to see how my back would hold up, but I think a weekly running/walking group will be awesome for me.
Do you smile, nod or wave at fellow runners? Or do you avoid all human interaction while running?
I usually smile back at everyone that greets me, unless I am going up a hill. When I am running up a hill I stare directly at my feet and will them to keep moving.
It gets the job done.
