Running? What Running?

It's been a crazy few weeks. In a nutshell, this is what I've been up to:

  • I wrapped up things at work before going on my educational leave. This was a surprisingly hectic task.
  • I started my graduate degree program and had a small freak-out about the volume of required reading ... so I've spent a lot of time this week with my nose in many different books. 
  • I've also been suffering from an extremely stubborn and irritating cough and cold. Can't seem to shake it, either. It's super annoying.

What I have not been doing, sadly, is running. I'd try, except for this small issue of being prone to unexpected and sudden coughing fits. I'm hoping this will change soon.

Rest assured, I will get back out there once my itchy throat goes away. I'm looking forward to discovering just how my new schedule and school routine affect my ability and motivation to run (and blog!). Will I have to run first thing in the morning versus in the afternoons? Will Sundays need to be reserved for group project work instead of long runs? Will the blog accidentally creep into my life as a student? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, I'd love to hear about what you guys have been up to, as I feel this need to live vicariously through my running peeps! Did anyone do the Vancouver Triathlon last weekend? Who's running the Queen City Marathon this weekend in Regina? And what other races do you have coming up in the fall?

I go to school here. It kinda rules.

  1. I took a 400 level Comm course because I thought I might like to do an MA and I needed an academic paper and an advisor, and the readings were a total shock!

    Hope you can kick the cough and get a few runs in.

    I'm running the DIVA (just a wee friendly 10K) but good enough for me.

    1. Thanks Harriet! I've had the DIVA on my list before. Any race is a good race - have fun!
