Sorry, it’s time for a break.

I am going to apologize now but there won’t be much blogging/commenting going on in the next few weeks. I have a lot of projects/papers assigned and am going to try to tackle them because knowing me I will put them all off and then be stressed at the last two weeks of school because I didn’t start them.

Plus they are in classes where I have low B’s and I need to actually do a great job to keep my grades at B’s or maybe, hopefully turn them into A’s.

I’m getting the short end of the stick in my online class, so just in case that ends up being a B because of things out of my hands, I have to work harder in all my other classes with the other B’s and try to get them to A’s.

I hope you understand!

if you leave me comments I will respond and if you email at snthierry@gmail.com, I will respond as well there. So you can still talk to me!

goodnight

The Recap You’ve All Been Waiting For

Go St Louis Half Marathon!

 

So I decided not to race this but just run comfortably. I set a goal of 1 hour 45 minutes. I actually set it thinking I was going to race and thought it was a pretty high goal and that it would be hard for me to do.

….let’s just say I hit the goal and I didn’t even race it!!!!

results

Here are my splits:

mileage time
mile 1 7:56
mile 2 8:02
mile 3 8:04
mile 4 7:54
mile 5 7:58
mile 6 8:01
mile 7 7:56
mile 8 8:02
mile 9 7:49
mile 10 7:57
mile 11 7:46
mile 12 8:26
mile 13 8:10
.21 1.36

Average pace: 8:00/mi

This course was EXTREMELY hilly. I train on hills everyday but not one’s that last a mile long. The last two miles my body just died on me. It was tired haha and didn’t want to do work anymore.

I wonder what I would’ve ran if I actually raced.

Picture Time:

I will have to post official pictures once they are up, but for now these are the pictures Alex took of me.

I must say, my leg muscles looked pretty good in those first few pictures 🙂 I can’t wait to see what the official pictures look like. Hopefully they took some of me actually running.

there you have it!!
