I was able to start the morning off with a 6 mile run which was nice. I finally got my pace up to an 8:30 pace, my foot still hurts if I try and go faster and hurts if I go farther but I'm learning to deal with the lack of speed and distance. I am trying not to think about my race next month and the fact that my mileage is taking an extreme cut back. I know I'll be fine physically, I'm in pretty good shape and I've ran a half-marathon with only 7 days of training before, so I'm not to worried (plus I'm not trying to PR). I'm just worried about being mentally ready. The lack of mileage and speed is making me feel like I won't survive the race. I just have to stay positive!
After my lovely run, I spent the remainder of the day at my desk studying for my last final of my nursing/undergraduate career! Crazy! I just hope I pass tomorrow =/
I finally took a break and cleared my mind with Hot Yoga! It was just what I needed, I was able to sweat out all my stress and clear my head. Today was Day 6 of my Yoga challenge! I'm really enjoying this challenge. My body needed this re-charge. Lately, I haven't been looking forward to my runs at all. I think I'm mentally and physically burnt out. I'm enjoying the little break from running and being able to concentrate on yoga!

Okay, back to studying! I promise I'll be a better blogger when I'm done with finals!
Question: Do you ever get burnt out from things? How do you change things up?
