It's Good To Be Home


I missed several runs last week and I pushed today's long run to tomorrow or Tuesday so that I could do a shorter, faster 3 mile run while I watched Big Brother instead.  I'm not proud of it, but last week was my last week at my internship and between packing up my stuff and finishing things up at work, running had to take a backseat.  

Friday was the last day of my internship and it was as bittersweet as one might expect.  I was excited to go home, but my experience in Orlando was not all bad despite my constant complaints about the weather.  I'm prone to nostalgia so when it comes down to it, I usually find goodbyes really hard.  After turning in the last of my projects and saying farewell to my coworkers, I was ready to come home.

I had a ten hour drive ahead of me, so I left on Saturday morning before the sun came up.  I made it to my apartment just in time to eat an early dinner and fall asleep before unpacking most of the stuff in my car.  

I woke up this morning and I was still tired from yesterday.  I walked to the store to pick up a few groceries this morning and did a 3 mile run on the treadmill tonight while I watched Big Brother.


I was happy with my Fitbit stats for the day.  I smiled when I saw the Floor stats.  Orlando is super flat so unless I manufactured reasons to take the stairs at work I never climbed more than 1 or 2 floors on any given day while I was there.  Now that I'm back in Tennessee, though, I manage to get in 7 floors in a short morning walk.  It's good to be home.
