I'm a few months into clinical rotations and getting used to wearing real people clothes to work each day. Long time readers remember that I used to share my work outfit every day back in my former marketing life (feels like a lifetime ago!). It was nice to be able to wear workout clothes to class for a few years, but I really do enjoy putting together cute outfits! Getting dressed for work is different now for a few reasons - there are more restrictions to clothing as a med student, both . . .
Happy Weekend! I spent the first half of the week on the inpatient psychiatry unit and the second half of the week in D.C. at a AAMC conference. And today I have a wedding for a good friend from high school! It's been busy and tiring and all over the place, but I am already loving third year and getting to be in the hospital. I have a few posts I'm planning to write on stress/anxiety and being single (requests from you all, so please send more my way if you have them!) but for now I'm just . . .
I had a 4:30 am wake up call this morning to take the lovely LoLo to the airport. I threw on my gym clothes and drove straight there afterward, but still wasn't super high on energy. My legs were sore from FRAN yesterday (AHHH!) so I wasn't in the mood to run. Instead I set up camp on an elliptical with the latest Self Magazine. And then I got bored. Because I finished my magazine and ellipticals are boring. Ever get that way? Where you don't necessarily want to be finished working out, you . . .
My body woke up naturally at 6. I considered going back to sleep for a few more minutes, but I know it feels way worse to wake up to an alarm so I just got up. The drizzling rain wasn't a problem since I planned to do some quick sprints at the gym. I'm still not running much, but a few times a week I'm trying to get in a short sprinting session for some anaerobic cardio. Just not as much focus on that distance stuff anymore. I've been loving Tabata lately! In just four . . .
