I have been a bit quiet – nothing to blog that feel particularly comfortable sharing. Instead, in contrast to last time, I have been talking about things with my husband – as it should be.
I went for another run today after work, a little further than last time. Training for city to bay. Anyone else doing this race? I found the run quite meditative. Just counting 1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2…, no ipod. The dog quite enjoyed it too. I am running through local streets, seeing parts of my neighbourhood that I have never seen before. Very diverting. The weather was good for it this evening as well, nice and cool with not too much wind.
I nearly always feel better after a run. I go out with the attitude that I can walk if I need, I don’t need to cane it, and I am happy with what I do.
On the job for next year front, it would appear that I may have to choose between two – I am in a tug of love, as it were. One fits better with the PhD hours, one is work that I actually would prefer to do. Hard.
My meeting with my PhD supervisor went well – he was really excited by my research proposal – I am happy that he was happy (especially since I was worried that he would say “what is this pile of crap, stop wasting my time”.) I have not yet heard about my scholarship, I do hope I get one; it will help.
I had a reasonable day yesterday – I could listen to christmas music being played without wanting to run a mile. Progress.
