Start of a stressful week. 3 midterms in my arguably hardest classes(Physics with Calculus 2, Honors Calculus 3, and Thermodynamics) over the next 6 days, coming off of a midterm in Engineering Fundamentals and an English essay last week, so I'm a bit drained. Studied all day and ran 8 miles, I normally would not have, but since today was a 25 hour day I figured it's basically running without losing any time for it. Thanks, Ben Franklin!

Also, truly saddening to see the place where I lived from when I started public school all the way up to 8th grade, San Antonio, become a headline in the news due to some sick bastard shooting up a church. Pardon my language, Sasha.

Physics studying

Physics test + calc 3 studying. The test was pretty hard, and a lot of people were talking about how confident they were and they got like 20% lower than me on the last one, so hopefully, if they do well I do 20% better. I think I did do alright, I just didn't want to waste time discussing the test when I have two more to study for.

Felt extremely good on the run, split some 5:40's during the run which felt like I was moving, but aerobically wasn't taxing at all. I have a workout on Thursday that on paper sounds pretty fun.

8 miles at night post-thermo test. Went fairly well, just relieved to have it done. I ran 7:20's for everything except the last lap which I went right at 6-flat pace for the last lap. Gonna do the workout I spoke of earlier in the week tomorrow morning.

Noon - mile repeats going 800 hardish, 200m float, 200m hard, 400m float. First one I ran 2:45 and 32, and the second one I ran 2:38 and 29, and then my watch died so I stopped. Man, I'm pretty out of shape. I didn't feel like you do when you're going all out, but I couldn't go much faster, just felt pretty crappy. I guess I'm not in shape enough right now to do any killer intervals. Oh well, I guess I'm starting over with my fitness, but at least this time I know I have the ability to run 3x400m in 53 and 100 mile weeks.

5 easy in the afternoon.
