Summer Dwellings

Summer is in full force here, and it shows because I haven't posted in a while. There is no Internet at Reece's so when I post it has to be from the library on campus. I only come into town a couple times a week. For the most part, summer has been pretty normal, not much going on. Summer is a time for a lot of running and that can get pretty monotonous which is why most people have a hard time keeping consistent training during this time of the year. But, I do not mind the simpleness of it and summer training has always fared pretty well for me. Also, I have been golfing a lot. I have a deep passion for golf going back when I was 8 years old, but the past three years in college, I have only went out a few times each year. Now, working at the golf course with free golf, I go for a round 4 or 5 times a week. I have enjoyed it thoroughly and might be talking about golf on here a little bit.
Although I have been golfing more than ever, I have managed to build up the mileage pretty quick. I am in the middle of my fourth week since taking a couple of easy weeks and will more than likely hit 90 miles for the week. I am sure once my miles start getting higher, golf will become a little more sparse. I am planning on trying out for the golf team later this summer though, with no expectations. My runs have been up and down. One day I will run 10 miles and feel sluggish and other days I can run 2 hours and feel great. From experience, I know this is the process. Once I get to a higher level of fitness, those bad days will not come around as much. Right now I know that I am about 10 days from being very fit again.
See, sounds boring to a typical person. Yet again, I am not a typical person. I somehow find enjoyment by running in 90 degree heat with bugs swarming all over my face. Summer has always been fun for me. Maybe its the fact that I can eat an extreme amount of food or soak in the pond after a run. Whatever it is, I like it.
