Hi! I'm a 18 year old track and cross country runner at a boarding school. You can read more on my about me page if you want to.
looking forward to running in shorts again
not looking forward to shaving everyday and wonky tanlines
Today at practice we did a 5 mile run. The good news is it was outside. The bad news is because of how shitty of a winter we have had the roads and sidewalks are still a mess so we were not allowed to run off campus. We have a road that is a mile loop around campus so we run on that. Which is fine when you are doing like 2 miles, but when you have to run the loop 5 times it gets pretty boring.
Also, I felt like complete shit today. By the time I was half a mile into the run I thought I was going to throw up. I am honestly surprised I did not collapse, faint, or throw up during this run. I am proud of myself that I pushed through and finished the 5 miles even if they were slower than I would like.
Now, to do homework. Then, from 9 to 11 tonight I have dance practice. Hopefully I will get all of my work done before that so that I can get a decent amount of sleep tonight. Not to mention that I have a test in my 7:30 class tomorrow morning so I can’t be falling asleep during that.
