Last night through now have been pretty busy. Finals are already kicking my butt and they aren't even for another 2 weeks! Last night I picked up my sister-in-law, Stephanie, and we headed to YSU's campus to hear Dr. Adovasio lecture about "The Invisible Sex." It was about the role of women in archaic societies, and why they are rarely depicted in the archaeological record. It was pretty interesting. The lecture wasn't even an hour long and I thought he could have gone into more details, but overall it was pretty good.
This morning I got up around 6:45 and went to the Y to do a quick workout.. my alarm went off around 5:50 and I hit the snooze every 5 minutes until I successfully convinced myself to get up.. The resulting tardiness lead to me only doing a 20 minute run. 20 minutes is better than no minutes, right? I did 1.93 miles which is about a 10:20 pace (super fast for me, I'm a turtle.. or something even slower). Today was not a great run; I didn't feel right. Different parts of both legs hurt, including my hips, it was harder to control my breathing and I was nauseated almost immediately. Hopefully it was just an off day. The last time I ran was Tuesday and it was my first run with my new Vibram 5-finger toe shoes so my feet/calves were a bit sore. Oh well, tomorrow's another day!
I was going to go to the zoo today and write an observational essay of the primate exhibit for extra credit for my biological anthropology class, but I got a good grade on our last exam and I'd have to drive an hour and a half to the zoo. So instead I'm going to lunch with friend Amanda.. pretty excited about soup and breadsticks from Olive Garden =) Then, unfortunately, I will be spending the night studying for upcoming finals.
What do you do when you're having an off day, plunder through or cut yourself some slack?
