It’s not easy but I’m pressing on with running despite oppressive heat and lack of sleep. I won’t lie, I’m looking forward to three weeks from now when all I have to do is train but I’m surviving and for that, I’m extremely grateful.
Not sure how the next two weeks will go as I start nights on L&D (6 pm to 6 am) but aiming for two more full mileage weeks as I wrap up this clerkship then an adaptation week while I’m on bridge and then the big time training begins!
