This time last year, I was in high school, stressing about senior year and all of my responsibilities. Now? I'm in the Air Force, stressing about my friends and their bad life choices.
But I think I talked about enough of that stress in my last post.
Yesterday I had my DEP work-out, and while it wasn't as bad as the last one, it was still challenging. We had to do a 30 minute non-stop run, and complete at least 5 laps (each single one being half a mile).
Well, I didn't hear when the commander called time, so I ended up running an extra lap unintentionally. Oops. 6 laps. 3 miles. I felt like I was going to fall over from exhaustion.
Then this morning was leg day at the gym, and the entire work-out I fantasized about taking a deliciously long bath, followed by a nap.
And I was able to take a little 30 minute cat-nap before my friend Ashley, a girl in my DEP group, called me up seeing if I wanted to work out with her.
Mentally I was like, "Nooooooooo, I'm sleepy. And my legs are tired. And my brain is tired. And my back hurts." But, being the trooper that I am, I agreed.

And, while tomorrow I will most likely feel the worst of my soreness, I can at least take comfort in the fact that a few months ago, I would not have been able to run 3 miles non-stop and then 5 miles the next day.
I am hoping that I completely recover by the weekend, because I have a date with JB, plus I think I'll be hanging out with friends as well. Ah, and speaking of JB, last night when we were talking he told me that he liked me and literally, verbatim, I said: "Um, well. I feel like I'm a really awkward person. But I like you too." So now that I've addressed the fact that I'm really awkward and shy at times, I feel a little bit better. The rest of the conversation went smoothly and we talked about macaroni, bacon, and ice cream. And how excited I am for the Hobbit movie premiere.
|Martin Freeman is a perfect Bilbo Baggins, in my humble opinion.|
Seriously though. Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, and Billy Connolly. All in the same movie? Yes please.
Anyway, I am now going to take yet another super long, super hot bubble bath in order to soothe my aching muscles.
