My final Final

This morning I took my last final exam of finals week. I am happy this quarter is over, for one thing I have learned not to take a math class before 10 AM. I had Precalculus at 7:45 this quarter and the teacher was sooooo dull, made it really hard for me to wake up and be excited about school in the morning. I'll be transferring to South Seattle for the summer, it should cut my commute time by about 90%. I haven't even registered for classes yet......I have toured the UW Art School and am thinking about going after a degree in Industrial Design, there are a TON of hurdles to jump yet though. I'm just excited because that means i get to take a drawing course this summer! Also, I'm on week two of training for a half-marathon this fall. It's going well, I run about 3-5 miles three times a week with a longer run on Saturdays. I've put on some extra weight since the last time I was really into running and it is making a big difference. It's pretty hard on my body right now. I got my first shin-splints last night and am worried that I may be diving into the training too quickly. From all I've seen, the only real remedy for shin-splints is rest between workouts. Anbody have any advice?

Precalc in the morning? Yah, YAWN!

I was actually going to go in to Industrial Design, but the Admissions guy said it was a lot of math, and that deterred me.

As for the shin splints, please say your warm up and cool down before exercising, right?

Sounds gay, but it works.
