13 Hours for Accounting Final
2 Hours for Managerial effectiveness final
I was really proud to have hit 67 during my first finals week of the Fuqua MBA. This week featured the much-hyped accounting final, where I had heard stories and rumors that the test would take up to 18 hours. For those that don't know, when I was at Wake, I had never gotten a B in my life, and suddenly I got a C- in my first Financial Accounting course. I skipped right over the B's and plopped right on the low end of C. It was devastating. In order to seal my admission to the undergraduate Calloway School of Business, I had to retake the class in the Summer term. So, yes, this was my THIRD time taking this subject, and unfortunately I don't remember much from either of those two course. So I completed the final on Friday and it "only" took me about 12 hours. After that, all I wanted to do was watch an episode of New Girl and eat chocolate. I decided to sleep in the next day and do all the things that I don't typically get to do, like go to the farmer's market and take a field trip to Umstead to run easy with Amanda. It was a great way to just take a mini-break before I begin to prepare for Term 2.
It's clear from the above that workouts this week were secondary to my finals, but I still got them in. My long run wasn't perfect, but I somehow still hit most of the splits prescribed by Coach T-bone. It was my first "meh" workout in a while, so I was definitely due for one.
