After a long and cold winter, this new fangled 70 degree weather feels almost too warm. I think my body is at the point where 55 degrees is the optimum, most comfortable temperature. The warmer weather also makes me sleepy until I adjust to it. Steve says that they have a word for it in German, to refer to spring tiredness. They don’t have a word for it in English (except perhaps “spring tiredness”), but it still happens.
Yesterday was the first really warm day- high 70s. I wasn’t ready to trust it and still wore winter-like, dark clothes to work with shoes and thick socks. That day, I realized how out of step I am with the collective female psyche. All the women at the agency, with one or two exceptions including me, had all spontaneously and simultaneously donned light colored short sleeved shirts, capris, and sandals or flip flops. How did they all do this at once? How did they all have neat new spring shoes? Even if I knew enough that yesterday was the day to dress all springy, I still would have been hopelessly out of date fashion-wise. I don’t even own a pair of capris.
Tonight is the next to last class! It’s hard to believe I’ve nearly completed a year and a half of the program. Stats, assessment, physiology, the internship and thesis loom as the final hurdles next year. Bring it on..
Day #30- I’ve been running 5 days a week for a month now. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. Next week I’ll start running 6 days a week. I’ve definitely noticed the benefits of improved mood, energy, and I now weigh what my driver’s license says. During this month I’ve discovered three new things- I like to cook, I like to write in this journal, and I like, sometimes love, to run. I’m waiting for Steve to get home from work so we can go hit those miles.
