That is Tobie and I (in the background).
I am the one being a jacka*s and Tobie is the one looking slightly embarrassed to be my date.
Today is officially the first day of Spring Break! And I am desperately needing it. Literally felt like I was crawling through my school work for about the past 2 weeks. I lost all of my school oompf and was just going through the motions. The content is really interesting but I feel. So. Damn. Tired.
I have to drag myself out of bed everyday and then yawn my way through the next 4 hours until I wake up. Maybe training for a 1/2 marathon and doing a 30-day yoga challenge at the same time was a bad idea.
The worst part was we started a new module recently, which, so far has been sports medicine related cases.
ABB falls in love with yet another specialty.
It has been really interesting to learn about hydration, energy stores, energy breakdown, and things like "bonking" or hitting the wall from a biochemical point of view. Plus it's given me a little lift in the running department, I am now visualizing my slow twitch muscle fibers stocking up on mitochondria which makes me giggle on the trails.
Tobes and I are renting a car for the week and are planning a little stay-cation here in Ireland. Since we're both starving students our budget is pretty small so we're mostly going to do day trips with the car and picnic lunches...but we are splurging on 2 nights in a 4-star hotel in Killarney and one night in Galway. I booked the Galway one on points so it doesn't count. :-)
Cannot wait to get outside and breathe some non-campus air, see some non-campus sights, and be around non-campus people. We are due for some quality down time. Granted we both have to do a bit of work over the break (Tobie practicing, me writing #3 of 5 essays due in April), but we are going try maximize our time off.
This means only 2.5 months left for the year!
