Guys this week has been insanity. It was my anesthesia week meaning I was co-doctoring with a classmate for her first two surgeries ever which I did the anesthesia and monitoring, which was really cool, BUT it meant I was up from 4am until 11pm for basically three days straight and that shit is HARD. So needless to say I didn’t exercise since Sunday because I was barely able to keep my eyes open.
BUT today! I finally got a full 8hrs of sleep last night and this afternoon I was able to go for a 3.5 mile run at lunch! It was so nice to be able to run again, I miss it when I’m not able to do it. It wasn’t a great run, honestly, I’m still very tired from this week, I’m a little on the dehydrated side too. But it was infinitely better than nothing.
I’m having a lot of difficulty figuring out how much I should be eating, and what I should be eating, which is frustrating. Also, I don’t know how often I can run without hurting myself? Baby steps.
This picture is from yesterday where I drove an hour after class to surprise my partner with flowers after he gave his first talk at a conference about the research he’s doing. Needless to say he was very surprised (I also definitely got ice cream from the universities creamery, and found out that my favorite bakery had gluten free vegan donuts now?? And bought a pair of really cute pants from a thrift store). Wooo.
