Cross training last night was a regularly scheduled walk with Erin. At first, we thought we might get rained on, but we were lucky and escaped the storm, but it was a humid 3 mile walk and we were both quite sweaty when finished. An buggy. Erin, in particular, was wearing a blanket of bugs.
Today, I have 6 miles for my mid-week run. My weekly runs are starting to gradually slope off even though I'm not officially tapering yet. I'll do that run this evening when the sun sets. I forecast the climate to be humid and buggy again.
I finished the 3rd book, "Eclipse," in the Twilight series. Yup. Read all 3 books in 9 days. Or rather, I inhaled them. Reading them so quickly has left me a little dazed. I read them too fast, but it was hard not to since the story was so absorbing, and now that I'm done, I kinda don't know what to do with myself. Part of me is tempted to re-read them just so I'm back in the story. The next book in the series doesn't come out until next fall; dang it, so I guess I have to return to the books I was reading previously -- there are not vampires in either of those.
I'm putting the student issue I've been worrying over behind me. I sent a concise email to her yesterday, and I think that should do it. I consulted with two fellow faculty members yesterday and both gave me positive feedback about the way I'd handled the situation, so I'm feeling more confident with my response to her.
I'm kinda screwed up on my days this week -- can't believe it's already hump day!
