So this weekend RIT crew did not have a race anywhere. Next week we go to the NY state championships so this weekend we have off. Having a weekend off just means are coach can push us that much harder on Friday and Saturday. Still after Saturday practice I got home at around noon and decided to do some work on a paper, I had some journal articles I needed to read. So I made myself lunch, ate it and around 1:30 I sat down to read through them.
Six hours later I woke up, so pretty much nothing got done Saturday. Today was a little bit different. I actually woke up at a decent hour and did a bit of work, went out to lunch did some more work and went for a run. Now the observant of you may have noticed that this post was titled "The taste of Spring". This is not because I went out for lunch. This is because due to recent rain storms we have had parts of the trail I went running on had nearby ditches flood. For those of you who have never ran next to stagnant water just imagine running into a cloud of mosquitoes. Luckily none of them seem to have bitten me, sadly I seemed to have bitten some of them. So my advice to you is if you are running through an area of stagnant water, learn to breathe through your nose.
