Mood: pleased as punch

Tonight's run: 7.5 miles, 1:10:27, 9:24 pace. Long run is llloooonnnngggg.
August total: 80.3 miles, 13:06:12, 9:48 pace. Almost double what I ran in July. Plus, this was the first week I ran over 20 miles - 21 to be precise. Good on me!

I'm rather pleased with myself. Immediately after the run both my knee and my back were hurting, but after I did some cool-down stretches everything was back to normal. Plus, before I went out I taped up the blister I got on last week's run that hasn't healed yet and it didn't get any worse. Huzzah!

Interestingly, my pace has increased by 32 seconds in just one week (9:49 to 9:17). The week before that it only increased by 11 seconds, and before that, 2 seconds. I'm not sure what's with the sudden improvement, but I'm not going to complain. This just brings me one step closer to my very, very long-term goals.

I also went ahead and cut my hair today. I was putting off getting it cut because I wanted to wait until right before I left for Korea... but, well, yeah, not so much. Just wait, I'll get a job offer before the week's end.

hey! don't worry about it. how was India?

I'm not going to Korea--yet... I had a job interview/job offer through TeachESL but after talking with the guy I'd be replacing I decided against taking the job. I have two different recruiters looking for jobs now, don't know how it's going. I'm starting to get really discouraged, and I'm actually thinking about forgetting about Korea and applying to the Peace Corps...

how's the job search going for you?
