As predicted, did not get the job. They want to leave the door open but in not sure in what context - we'll see. Went for a run to try to cheer myself up, and hit up Salem Woods on the way to Arnold Drive. So much more pleasant to be on trails in the shade rather than pounding the streets. Still hot and humid today, strategically walked some uphills. Arnold Drive was another modern road in another weird private road section of town, but nobody batted an eyelid at my presence there. I find that whole concept pretty weird. At least this one had pavements and people walking about.
Couldn't run anymore at about 55 minutes, and walked to the BRAND NEW BLUE BIKES STATION and picked up a bike to cycle back into town. Bluebikes are the best and it was nice to cruise along a traffic free bike path and unwind the legs a bit.

I finally did some exercise! The two day interview is done, the house is prepped to go on the market tonight, and I am worn out. Was going to have a relaxing long run but it's too hot out there today, so instead Rob joined me and we just about managed two miles in the cemetery. That was a good choice.
The interview went just fine, but I think it had to go brilliantly for me to be in with a shot. There were five candidates, I was the only woman, and the other four candidates were much more senior than me - three of them full Associate Profs. I wanted to ace the teaching part and I didn't - a mixture of nerves and the students being pretty bored by the time they hit me as the last candidate of the day. I don't think I've ever felt the only woman in the room thing more strongly than I did over these interviews. It doesn't feel good. Feeling pretty bummed about what I want to do next and trying to figure out what else I'd like to do if not this.

Restarted the Epic program and used heavier weights this time at 15#. It felt very different and I think probably better. Forces you to focus on form more, and was clearly harder work given the heart rate.
