Where Have I Been?

Locked in the library, studying for finals. That's where.

Here's a brief run down of the last couple of days:

Friday: rest. Actually it wasn't that restful because we had a company Christmas party to attend. Always nice to watch a bunch of your husband's coworkers get drunk and try to dance.

Saturday: 30 minutes cross-training. I tried our gym's new Expresso bikes. They're sort of like a cross between Wii Fit and Spinning Class. It was a lot of fun and I think I will try it out again on another cross-training day.

Sunday (today): 4 mile run. Note to self: do not down a 20 oz Mountain Dew and a bag of Reese's Pieces an hour before your long run. It does not matter that you can barely keep your eyes open to study for your finals. You will not feel more awake and your stomach will hurt during your run. Despite feeling horrible the entire time, I made it through the 4 miles in about 42 minutes. (I had to stop and walk for a couple of minutes to make sure my Reese's didn't come back up all over the treadmill.)

While I was running, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was on the TV right in front of me. I got so into to watching that when the Whomping Willow started hitting Harry and Hermione I ducked...and almost fell off the treadmill. If anyone noticed, they weren't laughing too hard at me, so it's all good.
