Marathon Training Day 175: Time Travel and Running Ramblings

This morning, despite the horrific space time rupture, I ran four miles before attending church. I had ample warning about the cosmic temporal distortion, a.k.a. daylight savings time. But hearing about it and experiencing it were too different things. Even with a quart of liquid schwartz, I was Spaceballs the Quiz, able to crash land in my bed after church … for a three hour nap.

It’s a good thing I’m not a graduate student with reading and other things to do today. Oh wait… hmmm, so I do need those three hours back. Drats.

I don’t remember feeling this disoriented when I was younger. It is only one hour… but today it feels more like jet lag. Not just regular jet lag… but like when I time traveled from the Philippines to the USA.

Anyway, I hope your daylight savings was more enjoyable than mine. On a positive note, I ran 4.07 miles this morning in 39 minutes, 28 seconds… and also finished my running for charity website which goes live tomorrow!

  1. It’s too bad the grad school books don’t come with a runnable version of an audio book. On the other hand, there’s no good way to take notes out on the trail!

    The time change: “OK, everybody, move one time zone east at 3, 2, 1 …”

  2. A four-mile run and church sounds like a productive Sunday to me. Don’t be too hard on yourself… We all need a break sometimes. Tomorrow is another day and the books will still be there waiting for you.

    • The books are always waiting for me. In graduate school they are like tribbles… no matter how many I deal with, more take its place… they are everywhere!
