Monday sans Marathon, sans Pete, sans Running

I suspected it would come down to this: several weeks of NO running.

I knew preparing for the Bar would be consuming. Studying in June went well. I was even able to manage the studying quite sanely during the first week of July. Now is a different story.

I have five more subject to look at, and then all 12 to re-review. 6 days to study.

Here is a typical set of review books (mine are green and cover MN):

You went into June "with a skull full of mush" and leave July "thinking like a lawyer."

Does this mean that Leadville is out?

I understand what you are saying. But, for me, when I am faced with way too much to do, I manage it better when I run. You can't study 24/7. Getting a run in daily, or a few times a week or whatever, seems like it is taking out of precious study time - BUT you will be refreshed and better able to concentrate if you get a run in. Seriously.

And, you WILL pass the bar. It seems overwhelming, but you really will.

When is it?

Thanks for the encouragement. THe exam is Tuesday and Wednesday.
I hope to get a nice run in on Monday and then a short one on Tuesday evening after the first day.
I'm hoping that this "rest" from running will leave me fresh for Leadville. We'll see.
