Now I can relax. Sort of.

After several nights of researching, writing and editing, I finally finished my biology semester project paper! It is such a relief to have it done.

But our next test is coming up in 10 days, so I can't really relax yet. Actually, I don't think I'll be able to relax until the semester is over.

I ran again today. The weather was spectacular for November: sunny and warm. Everyone in Fortuna seemed to be outside today, doing yard work or exercising. It was nice.

I am going to try to up my mileage on the weekends slowly, and probably keep my week runs between three and four miles for now. I don't want to burn out again thinking I have to keep up with other runners. I am going to do my own thing and enjoy it.

Today's stats:
Distance: four miles
Time: 44:30
Pace: 11:07 minute/mile

Great plan Michelle, just enjoy yourself.

Yeah, definately enjoy the runs. Mix things up and take different routes. Heck, try a Marcy-esque photo run and take us with you or change up the music you listen to completely. But most important, find how to keep it fresh to you.

Glad to see you are feeling and sounding better :-) Yes, yes, yes!! Running is all about you! Do your own thing, and when it works out, do your own thing with other people's own things :-)

I think that's a great idea, Michelle. Changing things up, keeping the runs "your" runs, will let you enjoy them more. My pace isn't what it was anymore, (it's slower), but I'm out there and that's a positive thing.

You're doing fantastic!
