Move In Day #3 (Complete)

May 4th: 5:20am out of bed (snoozed the alarm at least 4 or 5 times). Much easier with my own room. Quick breakfast. Sat on the couch (wherever it was plopped from the day before, crooked and facing a random corner of the living room) and ate my Frosted Flakes in the darkness. No TV. Nothing. Double decker PB&J, finished off my yogurt container, Clif Bar, and banana. Work 6am-2:30pm. Snailed around most of the day due to the lack of sleep from the night before.

Ordinary day and back to the apartment by 3pm. Forgot the dishwasher soap. Swung by Hannaford's because it is less of a hassle than Da Choppa (distance wise from the apartment). Self scan and back to the old apartment to clean/pack. Kitchen, bathroom and living room was left. Scrubbed everything and mopped the floors. Packed most of the things.

Took a break at 5:30pm to run with Derrick at 5:45pm. Just shy of 11 miles (76:16). Legs and overall body sore from the move the previous day. Lower back and forearms from the couch. Calves and knees from the tempo run. Good run though. Flew by.

Back to the new apartment (14J) to stretch and shower. No icing because I didn't have time to just sit around. Headed back to the old apartment (18J) to complete my task. Continued to pack and clean everything. It got to a point where I was wiping down the entire garbage can (inside and out) with a Clorox wipe. My mom would be proud. Rocking out to E-40 the whole time. Piled everything into the car except for a few major things (futon, coffee table, and TV stand). Back to 14J to unpack and organize everything. Several trips later, I was done.  Protein shake at some point. Dinner at 10:45pm. Chicken, pasta and freshly cut avocado. Simple, but delicious. Leftovers. Decided at about 11:20pm that I would just grab the rest of the belongings out of 18J. Futon the roof. The rest inside the car. All said and done at 12pm. Bed for an early wakeup for the Lenox 5k. Yay for minimal sleep and maximum amount of manual labor.
