I was flipping through the Walgreens sales ad and saw something that brought a smile to face. For the low low price of 3/$1, you can purchase Cadbury Creme Eggs. Delicious Dairy Milk Chocolate compassing a gooey batch of saturated fat that is only available in limited quantity for a short time. The eggs are the cardinals of the Easter Candy season, by far my favorite candy season. The forerunners are indicators that the Holy Grail of all Easter Candy, Cadbury MiniEggs will soon be available. Mmmm… Chocolicious.
On another note, I have a Statistics tutoree for Thursdays now. So, I now have 2 students on Thursdays which will give me time to work out between work and tutoring. I think this will be wonderful, the only thing that would make it better is if they were both an hour earlier so that I could get home before 9pm instead of 10pm.
I was able to get 5.4 miles around campus yesterday. It was a good tempo run among the hills of east Tennessee, my first run since last Thursday. I'll be running again on Thursday after work and will try to get another 5 miles or so in before my tutoring sessions. Today, I am going to swim at lunchtime, for about 1/2 an hour. This will give me my prep work for my long run on Saturday, which will be a 22.5 mile run in the morning. They are forecast rain for today, but it should be good for the weekend. This weekend will be 6 weeks out! I am not sure what time I will finish in. Marty (brewmaster and runner extrordinaire), with whom I have been training some, will finish right at 4 hours. He doesn't know it yet, but I think that he will be able to start off at a 9 min pace and then have a negative split for the second half of the race. He's thinking that he'll finish in 4:20 (10 min pace) but as long as he does not start to fast, he will be under 4hrs. This should put him around a 3:58 to 4:04. For me, I think I am looking more for a 4:15, which I am not that happy about. I would really like to have closer to a 4:12 or 4:10, as I know that I won't have a PR on this course, but i want a strong showing.
My computer at home is still scanning… sigh
