Great Comments Make My Day


So as I was looking through the pictures I took I found this one below. I was shocked by my leg muscle. Check it out.


How crazy does that look! We are not talking about my massive quadricep but my tibialis anterior. (This is me practicing my muscles and since my anatomy and physiology is a bit rough since I took that junior year of high school. Now junior year of college I will be in anatomy and physiology 2. Wonderful.)

Well my run was going to be 8 miles because I was planned to work Sunday which is today. It was insanely hot in the morning that I only got in 5 miles.

I hit the pool with my bff and teammate Jessica. She’s going to love me for posting this picture because she says that it looks like she is wearing a white sports bra underneath her swimsuit.


We hit up the pool at our apartment and it was pretty much awesome. We are trying to get rid of our running tan lines from our sports bras. I told Jessica she should probably give up because I don’t think she can get rid of hers haha. Especially when we run everyday in sports bras.


I received a wonderful comment a few minutes ago that made me smile!


Whoever you are, you brightened my day. I will be posting more pictures of what I eat! It will just take me a bit to start remembering to photograph before eating which is a hard task. Smile 

But this brings up a really good blog post for me. I also can agree with this reader, that reading bloggers and seeing the food they eat, makes me extremely sad. I just feel bad for them because they think they are being healthy and so good but honestly I think some have more disordered eating than healthy eating. I’m sorry, but eating a big bowl of vegetables as a meal does not make you healthy. But I will talk more about that in an actual post related to that!

Hope all is well out there!!

Q: Do you ever question the food bloggers post?

Q: How hot is it where you are? Today it got to 103 degrees when I got done with work. Running was not in question for me today sadly. That is way too hot.

Q: Don’t you love wonderful comments on your blog? I seriously love every one of my readers! Well the majority. I know some people read my blog, especially visits from fb and then judge me, but that’s their time their wasting, not mine.


Can You See Me Now?

My dad says I need to stop hunching over in my pictures. Example:


So I tried and tried but for some reason I couldn’t position the camera right and this is what I continued to get:


Can you see me now?

So I gave up.


I’ll figure it out some time because I know I can fit, I just need to get the positioning and height of where I put the camera right I guess.

Run: 6 miles (whoops, only did 5) with 3x3xuphill strides (not included in the 6 miles)

We had speed development which was 3 x gradual hill strides at 87% race pace and 3 x steep hill strides at 97%

2.28 Miles in 17:38 [7:44 per mile]

7:26 – 7:42 – 2:29

3 x gradual hills

.10 @ 6:42 pace
.11 @ 7:21 pace
.11 @ 6:44 pace
my second one was slow because I stepped in a hole and hurt my ankle a little

1 Mile in 8:10 [8:10 per mile]

this was pity mileage between my gradual hills and steep hills.

1.8 Miles in 14:15 [7:55 per mile]

7:50 – 6:25

****As I am writing this, I just realized I only ran a little over 5 miles instead of 6. haha FAIL!

After my run I refreshed with a nice glass of chocolate milk.


I also decided to share with you what I wore to work on Thursday because it is a really cute shirt. However, I am sad to say the belt loop in it broke so I’m going to have to get all Martha Stewart up in here and sew it back up.


Also I drank out of my favorite mug ever.


“Tigger is that you?”

I have an obsession with Winnie the Pooh ever since I can remember. Anyway, I am totally seeing the new adventures of winnie the pooh in theatres. Start judging me now. Smile 

Q: Do you enjoy your job? I absolutely LOVE my job and that is wonderful because it’s hard to find a job you really enjoy and don’t mind working 9 hours a day or more.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Winnie the Pooh? Or do you have a sour soul and think Winnie the Pooh is stupid? I love Winnie, he is just so cute. But once Roo came into the picture, Roo became one of my close favorites too. My mother enjoys eeyore, poor guy is always so depressed and just needs a hug. I dislike Rabbit though, seriously, such a downer.
