PM: 13 miles. 

Warmer but felt cold. A very mild winter. Not that I've been running in it. Felt solid the last few days. I thought a lack of running and lack of land miles would make the transition harder but it was only a handful of runs that felt awkward and bad and then I was up to 10 miles without too much trouble.

PM: 10 miles easy.

About 55 degrees and moist. Much preferable to the wind and colder temps the last three days, which are pretty much normal for this time of year but not this particular year. Dissertation defense on Thursday. I'm not unconvinced I actually hallucinated that it's scheduled when it's really not. I've had so many issues getting it scheduled over the last year? Year and a half? I don't really know at this point.

PM: 2 miles on the treadmill

40-60MPH winds. Wanted to do a workout but my legs aren't ready. The power kept shutting off and I wasn't feeling the treadmill, so I called it an off day and did some hip and core strengthening and pull-ups.

Driving to Purdue for my dissertation defense.

Off.

Got into Lafayette IN around 12:00 last night. Had my dissertation defense at 8:30 and it went okay. I had some Mary Lou's donut, so the day was even better.

I'm relieved to be done school after four years of college, two years of my master's, and seven years of my PhD. I stretched the last one a little too long.

I planned to run when I got home but ended up have a few beers at lunch with my advisor and had more drinks from there. I had to work at 5:00 the next day, so I went to bed shortly after we had dinner.
