I'm taking an online creative writing class starting next week. How I am going to fit running, blogging and work along with a class is beyond me. Oh, I need to pack and get my tax stuff ready also. Back when I signed up for the class I thought I would be in the new house and wouldn't be overloading myself. HA! I went online and read the syllabus, introduction and first assignment and they are riddled with incorrect spellings and mis-use of words. The instructor used "plane" instead of "plain" and "write" instead of "right". I certainly hope he did that on purpose. The book listed in the syllabus supposedly isn't even in the book store (I bought mine through Amazon) and now wonder if I need the handbook the other students are talking about instead. Plus the syllabus spelled the authors name incorrectly and talks about the fall 2009 class, which was an in-person class. Perhaps my expectations are too high but there are a lot of things that have already bothered me and class hasn't even started yet.
I have officially begun my taper now. I'm excited my run yesterday went well although my legs are pretty sore. At the start of the run my lower left leg was very achy and its even more achy this morning. I will increase my strength exercises as I decrease my miles. I wonder if I will quit being so hungry when my miles decrease. I like to eat when I get stressed so I don't know if I'm actually "hungry" or stressed. I've also heard that you could be dehydrated and feel hungry. I have been waking up feeling like I'm hung over and figure I need to hydrate more.
I'll pull out my new shoes tomorrow, unless of course its raining, and go for an 8 miler. My friend who was supposed to visit (which is why I had to do my long run yesterday), had to cancel. I'm bummed. I will still go scrapbooking though but she will be missed. But I am soooo happy to have the long run done and learned that my new house is 10 miles from work so I could run home once in awhile.
Ok. I'm going to go read about memoirs and figure out what my first homework assignment will be.
