Tomorrow is the big day. First meet of the season. The race tomorrow sets the tone for the rest of the season. I ran 28:43 here last year which isn’t to flattering. Jatin seems to think I’ll be breaking 27 but I imagine he thinks that if I’m going to break 27 then he will also. As of late, like the past year or so, I haven’t really been putting any expectations or predictions on any of my races. I don’t really think about them that much and I definitely don’t get nervous anymore. I know I’m in shape. I know I can run fast because I have run fast. I’ve put in the mileage and done the workouts so realistically there’s no reason I shouldn’t run very well tomorrow barring some sort of freak accident, i.e. my shoe falls off or I fall or something. I’ll give an update tomorrow or Sunday on how I do.
Today marked my first complete week of school and I must say I like the way things are looking for this semester. I’m done by 10am on Friday. Any homework that I have over the weekend is generally for Tuesday because I only have one class on Monday. That means I pretty much have two full nights to do homework for the weekend.
Since I have so much time to do homework that means I can just get hammered on Saturdays hint hint. Tomorrow, like most weekends, should be a great time. I really like the people I’m living with and the people I’ll be partying with. It’s just a very entertaining group which pretty much ensures for a good time and some great stories the next morning. The only con to running cross country/living in Reimert is that from now on, every Friday night before a meet is going to consist of me trying to fall asleep in my bed while it’s shaking from the bass from the suite below us. Not only will I not be able to sleep but if you remember from last year, I kept saying that it sucks when all my friends go out and I’m stuck in the room by myself, well this year its pretty much like my friends are partying in my room and I can’t drink. If I could exchange running in a meet to party an extra night would I? No, obviously not, but it’s still not pleasant.
This was another rather pointless post. My mind hasn’t been wandering too much lately and I haven’t gotten into the swing of things totally yet so give me a bit and these posts should pick up a bit. Until then, enjoy your weekend people.
