Got out for a nice slow "distance" run this morning. I went at distance run pace, for the distance run mileage I was supposed to today, but I just have a really hard time considering 3 miles a distance run. Maybe I ended up going more than that. It was probably actually closer to 3.5, but still.

I felt really good afterwards though. Like I could have kept going for a good while longer. It was pretty nice outside too. Sunny, but not blindingly bright and with a slight breeze. I had gotten slightly warm in my fleece, probably would have been okay without it.

My running's felt really good as of late. I felt very in control, pace-wise today, which is something I've struggled with. I either start out way too fast or feel like I'm dragging my feet, but today felt like I'd hit a pretty happy medium.

For those Runner's World fans out there, I got to interview Bart Yasso (the editor) on Friday for a story I'm working on about how to introduce speed workouts into your training program safely. He was a really cool guy to talk to and gave me a lot of really good tips to use in the article.

In other news: The Terps choked big time in their ACC-tournament opener against Miami, but they needed a loss before the NCAA tournament. Getting smacked around by the likes of Miami will probably be pretty motivating for them now. Plus I'm sure Gary let me hear it afterwards.

Spring break starts next week. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm not doing anything too exciting. Going home and relaxing mostly. But first I've got to get through two midterms and two papers. Ew.

I'm so excited Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow. Longer days!!!! Which means more time for me to work runs into my schedule! YESSSS!!!!

Anyway, that's all I've got for now. Don't forget to change your clocks tonight!

  1. I'm sorry about the Terps. I promise not to gloat about the Tarheels winning the ACC and more than likely (hopefully) getting a No. 1 seed. Nope, no way will I brag about North Carolina Tarheel basketball (4 national championships). I refuse to stoop so low as to show favoritism to the greatest team that has ever played (did I mention the Tarheels?). I hope Maryland gets a high seed.
