So in about an hour I am running 7 miles at marathon pace with some surges. With DB. And this will pretty much polish off 10 or so weeks of what has probably been the most amazing summer of my life. And not a whole lot of really crazy, fun stuff has happened. But seriously, the experiences I have had over the last 4 months or so have contributed to a very different attitude/perspective on life. And it's all positive. And the way some of the things have unfolded and some of the new relationships that have developed out of this, this unfolded-ness (is that even a word), are just nearly unbelievable.
Last night, which was the second night and usually one of my worst when traveling overseas, was not half-bad. 3 hours of solid sleep, 2 awake with some ipod time, and 4 more solid hours of sleep. No complaints. Tonight should be better, and then from there hopefully just as normal as possible. No naps for now which kinda bites, but soon enough. I plan on sleeping so much next week, that people will probably think I have left the Estrel.
So off to do the tempo. Must go get one more cup (very small european style cup) of coffee. My head and heart are in this thing.....hope yours is too.
