Outside of Emily, I couldn't give a sh*t whether or not the people on this season meet their goals. AND that chick Conda is absolutely terrible. At this point I'm watching the show just to see how annoying she can get.
Finishing this season of BL seems like a long shot. I'll probably wait awhile before I watch another one.
In other news, the Colonial 5K is coming up in two weeks. I'm working hard for that goal of 27 minutes. This was today's speed work: 10 min warm up then 5 sets of [3 min @ 7.2 (8:20 min/mile), 1 min walk recover]. Wooooo it was hard. Determination and Karen O & Trent Reznor's version of the "Immigrant Song" got me through it, but just barely.
A few years ago I ran a 10 mile race at 8:15 pace; this morning I could barely turn out 5 600s at a pace slightly slower. I'm not sad about it, just cognizant that I am capable of a lot more than what I can do now. I have to remind myself that the hard work I'm putting in today will make me stronger, and faster, tomorrow.
Listen to this song!
