On Friday, my average pace was 9:42. Today—just three days later—it’s 9:31. Granted, an average change of 11 fewer seconds per mile is not massive and it could really be due to something as simple as my hydration or whatever, but it’s still exciting to see myself managing to improve my pace. It’s even more exciting considering the resistance was higher this time. I ran slightly slower, but I ran with much longer strides, so that helped make the process easier. Only 16% off this pace to reach my goal!
So I finally got my hair cut again. I also snagged this hella rad hoodie-thing from the sale section at Urban Outfitters today.
So I went on a bit of a run tonight…And the exciting part is that my pace was less than 1 mi/10 min! Granted, my pace was just about 9:46, but still, that’s better than usual for me. My ultimate goal for now is to shave another 18% off of that (so I get down to a pace of 1 mi/8 min). But hey, progress comes one step at a time!
So I share this room with two other guys. My bed is the one on the left. There’s not really any space for me to personalize, but it’s whatever. It’s kind of nice not having to worry about buying anything to fill the space I guess.
Rice has been incredible—though painfully heteronormative (I only know one queer guy so far, and we haven’t even really met)—but otherwise, it’s amazing
I have my TV set up as a dual monitor for my computer, and every time I drag a window and it goes from being on my laptop to my flat screen television 6 feet away from me, I’m like, “Shit man; we live in the future.”
