Untitled

I have thirty minutes to type this post, edit, and load the images I want to show you.  Gone are the days I have time to come up with the perfect title that sums up the topic and purpose of a post while grabbing your attention and making you want to click.  : )

“Untitled” works.

It’s been over two weeks since my last post.  This silence was not planned.  It just happened.  All of my effort, I put into school, running, and my family.  I didn’t have anything left at the end of the day to write.  So here it goes…

How everything was/is going in nutshell.

Training has progressed nicely over the past two weeks.  I feel like I am close to race shape again.  No races are on the calendar at the moment, but am considering adding a few no pressure races beginning in May.  A couple 5ks and maybe a half.  I plan on taking most of May off from school so that will be a good time to get back into racing.

My Friday morning workout was a tempo run which I ran inside.  My allergies have been horrible this year so I have reduced my outdoor running time significantly…

The workout was 2 miles at an easy pace.  Strides (usually I end up running 3-4×30 sec strides on the treadmill).  2.5 miles @6:45/mile.  2.5 minutes rest.  2.5 miles @6:50/mile I did about a  1 mile cool down but the workout called for 2 miles.  I had a morning class that I needed to get to.

Time for a new pair of shoes…

And a new shirt…

This happened when I was in my car, hot from the lack of AC and desperately needing to take off my jacket.  The shirt ripped, the zipper remained stuck, and I was left with two options.  My son’s Cowboy shirt that might fit or my daughter’s shirt that might fit.  #wardrobemalfunction

After I finish this post, I am going to do a boxing class at Guy Mezger’s Combat Sports Club.  For years, my family and the MMA coaches have been trying to convince me to come take a class.  After seeing the success that some of my running friends have had with cross training on top of long distance training, I have decided to give it a shot.  I will let everyone know how it goes in Sunday’s Three Weeks of Training Post.

As most of you know, I am in the Computer Information Technology Program at Richland College.  I am just about finished with the basic computer classes.  Computer Hardware and Operating Systems.  After this semester, I only have one more core class (Speech) and then the rest will be degree specific.  I have yet to decide if I am going to stick with Network Admin or venture off into Network Security.  Many of the Semester I and II courses are the same for both tracks so that decision I will make later on.

This week in Computer Hardware, I made a patch cable and a crossover cable.  It took me a lot longer than I thought it would.  #newITgirl
