Another week of training is in the half marathon bank. That’s not nearly as interesting as the fact that on Friday I sent my reading committee a draft of my dissertation. Yippee. I still have a lot of work to do over the next 5-6 weeks but it’s a big achievement nonetheless. Also my dissertation passed its preliminary review which means that I got the formatting right. So once again last week was just about getting my runs in. It was all pretty standard stuff but my heart rate is still ridiculously high on my easy runs. I blame stress. I also have decided not to worry about it. I have enough going on right now!
