I don't know about you folks but I am just spent. I did tons of background reading for a couple of upcoming blog posts but I just couldn't put fingers to keyboard today.
So let me just wish each and every one of you all the best for a happy and healthy New Year.
Professionally, I wish you get the paper / grant / degree / position / sanity / equality / respect that you so richly deserve.
Personally, I simply wish you happiness - whatever that means to you in your situation, no matter where you are in the world.
Well, despite the enjoyment of a number of glasses of champagne and other fine wine last evening, I pulled it together for the merciful 1 pm start of the New Year's 8K trail run I spoke of yesterday. While this is not a New Year's resolution, I have been trying to get back in shape for the last month or so with the goal of losing about 17 lbs to get back to my end-of-grad-school weight.
The good news is that I finished and I did not finish last, cranking it out at an average 86% max HR (in my substandard current state of conditioning I run by heart rate, not time.). I have to laugh because even PharmMom called to see how I did having read the last post - thanks, Ma!
Happy New Year, bro!
XOXOXOXO, Pharmboy! And congrats on the race. That's fantastic!
Happy New Year, Abel! Well done on the race ... I'm also all about finishing, not the time it takes to get there :)
