Lay over

Apologies for the delay since my last post. I'm in the thick of midterm season as well as doing job interviews, and it's just been a crazy week.

Octapolluza is going well so far this week. Monday I did two yoga classes and this new class we have called FitTrek. It's a form of nordiac walking. It was kind of cool.

Tuesday I got in a nice run. It started off not so great. My calves were tight and everything felt really labored. I started to feel things loosen up around mile 1 though. I had only planned on doing two miles because things felt so bad in the beginning, but I ended up extending it to three when things felt better.

Wednesday I took my rest day for the week because I was in York, Pa., interviewing for a job. It was an all day affair with the commute and I got back and I was just dead tired.

Today I am on the verge of breaking Octapolluza for the first time. I am just completely and totally worn down and exhausted from this week. I've been burning the candle at both ends a little too much. I didn't realize just how tired I was until I came home in between two of my classes, sat down on my bed and next thing I knew I was waking up just in time to leave for my last class of the day. I was lucky I didn't sleep through it because we had part two of our midterm.

So needless to say I haven't worked out today. I'm spending the evening relaxing. I might go out dancing at one of the bars around here with some friends tonight though, and if I do, I might count that as my work out because I definitely get a decent workout in when we go out. We'll see what happens though. I may end up just staying home and passing out. I am looking forward to tomorrow though because I can finally sleep in, something I definitely need.

Thank goodness it's the weekend!
