Last tuesday I experienced an epic failure at the gym, I was set to run 16km - not a new thing to my legs - but for the entire time I was running I felt awful. My legs were tired, my calves were burning, my lungs were unhappy... WTF?! I stumbled off the treadmill with only 7.5km completed... it was crap, I was pissed off and I moped for the rest of the evening.
Fast forward to yesterday. I had originally planned on running outside, the weather was amazing all week and I was looking forward to the sun shine. Saturday rolled around and it was cold and windy, so I opted to try the treadmill again. This time I rocked my 16km. My legs were awesome until about 13 kms in when they started to get a bit fatigued, and my lungs were great... quite the difference from tuesday I would say!
Today was suppose to be a quick recovery run but I decided some power cardio-burn yoga would be better for my hamstrings - and I was right, it felt wonderful.
This week I have some more 6.5 km runs scheduled and a great big french test on thursday - yikes! I've had the test on my goals list for ages and I really would like to get an "exempt" (meaning I scored high enough that my bilingual status will be good forever). However, my french has been,- how you say - non-existant since I graduated so I may not get that E.... oh well, anything would be beneficial from a job standpoint so off I go.
34 days until I leave Borden for Quebec City!!! Although leaving my cosy private room, my car and the closeness of my awesome in-laws is not ideal, I will be finally completing my training and getting a promotion - another stripe, and a pay raise! Hooray!!
Back to studying I go, night.
