Midnight was obviously too late for me last night. I stayed up and watched the women's long program, which ended with Mirai Nagasu's sweet long program at about quarter of.
This morning, of course, I felt like I had been hit by the piledriver of bad planning and no amount of caffeine or food was going to truly change how the Olympics kicked my butt. There are two more long nights ahead of me and then the Olympics will be over for another two years, when I will forget this experience and instead stay up too late watching beach volleyball, the marathon, and tons of swimming events.
I'm planning on doing Boston's Run to Remember again this year, so half marathon training starts on Monday. Thankfully, I have cross-training down to a (yawns pitifully) science, or is dog walking and other walking not good enough for cross-training purposes?
