So, I thought I finally had a break through the other night because I was able to run 40 minutes. It was incredible. I don't think I've been that elated in a long time. I was hoping to be able to run an hour the next day. Of course I try to run in the morning which was no good and resulted in a 30 minute run which was ok.. just not what I was looking for. I figured that was good because I ran a lot the day before compared to what I've been doing. Well, today I woke up and I just knew my back was not feeling it. I tried anyways and got 20 minutes it. It's a lot more than I could have done a week ago, so I'm thankful, but I want to run for an hour so bad. My back still feels the same way it did when I woke up so I don't think running now will be any better. This is seriously one of the most frustrating things I've ever dealt with. Not to mention the fact that while I'm not running, I feel like the only things to eat in my house are cookies and all sorts of other desserts that are not helping me stay in shape by any means.
Why is this happening? Why is it taking so long? When it first started I only planned on cross training for like 2 days. Then when I was told to take off I only planned on that lasting like 2 days. This is all just so dumb.
I got to skype 2 of my friends from Starkville last night! It was probably one of the highlights of my break actually! I didn't realize how few friends I have here and how great my college friends are.
Another highlight to this break was the murder mystery party me and Hales went to. I originally really didn't want to go. It was so much fun though. It's really complicated to explain so I guess I won't even try, but I can't wait to go to the next one already.
Hope this next week gets better!
