Spring semester is OVER!!!

And I am sooooo excited!

I found out this morning that I scored 102 points out of 100 on my final practical exam! There were three bonus questions, which helped. I even emailed my teacher after I saw my grade to make sure it wasn't a typo. She said it wasn't, that I got all the bonus questions correct and only missed a "tiny tiny bit on the exam." She followed it with "You star!!!!!" That made me feel good! :-)

So my overall percentage in that class is 94.6, which is an A (below 93 percent is an A-). I only needed 90 points on this last test to secure my A. We get to drop one test score (and two quiz scores), so that pathetic 83 I got on the first practical is history. I can now relax and enjoy our vacation (which we're leaving for on May 17). My next class is physiology, which I will be taking in the summer starting June 16. I fully intend to kick ass in that class, as well.

I will update later after my workout. Planning on a run tonight.

**UPDATE**

I ran two miles tonight. It felt pretty good, all things considered. I am hoping to run the 10K on the 10th virtual run organized by the awesome Nancy tomorrow, but I will likely make that decision based on how I feel when I wake up. I also ended up tacking on a 30-minute workout on the elliptical. It was one of the body toning programs, and man, was it a butt-kicker!

Oh, and here is today's latest knee pic (yes, I have a Disney princess Band Aid covering my stitches):



Today's stats:
Run:
Distance: two miles
Time: 22:19
Pace: 11:09 minute/mile

Elliptical:
Time: 30 minutes

Great job on the class!!! Wow. that's something to be proud of. I have 6 days left in this semester for me and couldn't be happier, although I won't have an A. :-)

Your knee/leg looks awful. Sorry to say that, but you really hit it hard. I hope you are starting to feel better.
