So yesterday we had our long run. It was 16 miles. If you remember last time I ran 16 miles it was on my 21st birthday and I cried through miles 15 and 16. I thought "hey whatever it's the first time I've hit these miles, that's okay". Well yesterday I was crying by mile 12 and didn't stop until I finished, and actually didn't really even stop then. I think 16 miles might be my "wall distance" or at least one wall that I need to get through.
My group leader however did make a good point that given other circumstances, it may have just been a "bad run". For example, I barely slept the night before (I was nervous about a wedding I was in yesterday), the temperature was absolutely ridiculous outside (as well as humidity) and the fact that I am extremely stressed about the first part of my CPA exam which is supposed to be on Wednesday (more on that later). So, I'm going to try to chalk this up to just a bad day, bad run, bad whatever and get past it.
Not even going to go into the splits they were pretty bad :(
Second half of this post is about this crazy exam that is the reason I've been seriously slacking on any kind of blogging-buddy commenting :( I need a 75% on each part of the 4 parts of the CPA exam in order to get licensed. I signed up to take the first (and hardest) section on Wednesday of this week (I signed up more than a month ago thinking I'd be ready). Well... I'm not ready :( and I don't think I'm close enough that 3 days will fix my not-readiness. I took a practice final-simulation exam today and got.... *drumroll please...*
68 percent.... blahhhhh. This was a good exercise for me though because I was able to see that I'm not uncomfortable with ALL the material, just like half of it LOL. At least now I can "hone in" on the sections that I'm doing really bad on (example lecture F3) and hopefully get that score up to a 75 percent. You can pay $70 to reschedule your exam and I think that's what I'm going to do unfortunately. Goodbye "massage budget" for the next 2 months.... I need to pass this thing :(
So that is my life right now. studying, running, eating, sleeping, and repeat....
p.s. I HAVE been reading your blogs and am so inspired by all of your progress. Especially my Chicago Marathon buddies getting "up there" in their distances!
