This is the first day of the Summer Weekly Posts. If you missed those, check them out here.
First off, we’ll talk about my day!
Alright so my black font is not cooperating, so how’s this colorful post looking? Obviously breakfast was MaraNatha Peanut Butter on a Thomas brand Bagel. NOMNOMNOM!
Soup and a salad? Oh wow is this black or is it dark green font? Not sure. But I had a turkey and swiss sandwich and chicken noodle soup.
Guess what came today!!!!
Asics Gel Cumulus 12!!!! Yeah aren’t they pretty!! I wore them on my run today!!
Greetings from LOLA!!!
Ran with Megan today. Nice and easy run.
Did core work and ate pineapples.
As well as stretched and rolled my legs out.
Two small tacos and 2 pieces of pizza. I know, what a dinner of champions!!!!
Also tried hummus for the first time! This kind didn’t have any taste and kind of had the texture of bean dip. I guess I’ll have to try some with flavor.
Dairy Queen has a buy one blizzard at regular price, get one for 25 cents. So of course Alex and I took advantage of that!! I got mocha chip, he got cookie dough.
I treated because well….Alex is on crutches and hurt his ankle real bad. Recovery could be 4 weeks, therefore ending his outdoor season (which he’s waited all year for.) What’s even worse is that he’s been running so well and was feeling strong all last week and was ready to break 4 minutes for the 1500. Poor guy. Needless to say he is not a happy camper and I’ve had to take care of him the last two days and carry his food and open doors etc for him.
Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of races posted up for this summer yet. At least not enough information. But here are the plans for the summer.
Road Race 5k
Road or Grass 10k
XC kickoff 5k on grass
That is the extent of my summer racing. I don’t want to race a lot because I want to stay fresh for the cross country season since I am walking on the team! But I also want to have an idea where my 5k’s are, both road and grass. Same with the 10k since Coach has a goal for me to be a 10k runner in track. Crazy, right? About 25 laps on a track! I’m pretty excited though.
Then there’s the Mackland mile which alex did last year and I really wanted to join him. So I’m doing it this year. It’s basically a mile straight downhill for the most part. So it’ll be a pretty awesome time. It’s also on the 4th of July which makes it even cooler.
Q: What summer races do you have planned?
Q: What running shoes do you run in?
Things that make me happy
- New shoes
- The fact that all my laundry is clean
- That even though alex isn’t racing, I get to spend more time with my family saturday
- Knowing that I mean a lot to Alex and am able to help him manage
- Yummy pineapple
