Ok, it is the end of the semester rush; I should do ok if only I organize myself well. It will be a challenge to do that; lots of midnight oil over the next two weeks.
I did see some basketball though.
On Thursday, the Bradley women held off North Dakota State 70-64. Though NDSU did not have great record coming in, they have played better recently. And, only 4 Braves scored at all (one lady got 30..so that helped).
On Friday: Bradley opened up a 32-28 half time lead and went on to cruise 83-52; the victim was an out-manned North Carolina A&T team.
Last night: Tracy came over to watch Ohio State beat Wisconsin to move to the football “final four”. Note: Illinois State football moved to the “elite eight” but now has a rough assignment vs. North Dakota State, up there.
Saturday: run..jog to Bradley Park, run up the hills hard, walk briefly, then jog down. 1:04 for the 5 mile. Today: 10 mile walk at an easy pace (2:52 for just over 10: to the Riverfront, goose loop, dam, etc. Not much of an effort, but ..well, 10 miles is now challenging. I have not gone “double digits” since October 13 (walk/jog half marathon); it is amazing at how quickly I lose distance conditioning. And I am feeling the leg weights/dead lifts.
