I think I’m finally past the midsemester stuff, as far as I know. As much as I enjoy writing papers compared to taking exams, I guess I didn’t think of how many I’d have to do at once as an English major. Silly English Literature is kicking my butt. Camelot? Knights? Arthur? Lancelot? I guess I don’t really like that crap. :-X
Track is going well. I’ve been going to practice every Wednesday night @ North Andover High School–myself and the famous (or infamous?) Sam LeBeau represent UML. We could either be a good representation or bad, haha. All I know is pole vault practice is my favorite part of the week. It’s the perfect way to beat the mid-week blues. Last night we put up a bungee and had a little fun. I was clearing 9′ with three steps. I couldn’t believe how long it had been since I had actually cleared SOMETHING. I’m excited, but I’m having a hard time seeing an improvement in technical stuff. I can’t feel a difference. Am I supposed to? All I know is I can feel my arms and shoulders today!
I’m hoping next week to get out to 5 steps. I’ve never gone more than 5. So silly. I’m glad I can work on it though, unlike last year. Knowing how injury prone I am and having a better idea of how to take care of myself, I can see a difference in my attitude, moods and well-being overall. I’m still lifting, but it feels weird not having running workouts. I’m not saying I’m fat or anything, but I’m just used to seeing myself more in shape with running. It’s a different kind of strong I guess. I’m taking good care of my foot, biking, and SOMETIMES pool. As the weather gets colder it’s a little harder to get me in the pool…
