Tag Archives: sweat


Whether it is hitting the pavement in my running shoes or on my bicycle I love it!  I love to spend 30 minutes to an hour, just my ipod, my running shoes, the beautiful outdoors, and me!  I am glad that I live in a city that there are trails all over it, and I just happen to live one block off of them. Is it really spring? My allergies say it is. Weather, please keep getting warmer so that I can workout outside. I hate the Dreadmill. I need to get my daily amount of Vitamin D. I love the sun.

commitment to staying healthy

The first year of medical school was overwhelming and of course it came with a nice weight gain and a lack of endurance. Well my lovely friend Brooke ( Life Love and Med School.), is a runner just like me and we decided to make the commitment to run the Route 66 Half Marathon  on November 20. We are two weeks into our training. I love running and my body is starting to figure out that it has to get up at 6 am in order for me to get my morning run in and get ready for class by 8 am. The accountability of knowing that Brooke is going to be at the school at 630 am every morning makes me get my butt out of bed, to not only disappoint her, but to be a good running and workout partner.

Here is our training program. Half Marathon Training: Intermediate.

Running feels great and my body has missed the sweat, missed the sore muscles, and missed my jeans being loose!


when I finished taking my cardiophysiology exam I hit the submit button, after hitting the submit button I was expecting a grade. The thing I have learned about the physiology of the body is what starts to happen as I hit that submit button. I can feel the adrenaline leaving my adrenal glands, maybe a little bit of sweat comes off of my forehead, I can feel my heart feel like it is going to jump out of my chest, if you were to measure my pulse grade it would probably be a +4.  As the computer finishes submitting my quiz the submission screen pops up, and NO GRADE!

All that sympathetic response wasted. Wait neurophysiology was the last test block.

hmmmm, guess I will have this same response in a few hours when we get our grades.
