Lance Armstrong, watch out.

What a deal!!! If anyone is looking for compression shorts, check out Road Runner Sports


These are 14.95!!!! They are part of the bargain for the day so they are 50% off from the normal price. And if you want to be so kind and order a size small for me while you’re at it, that’d be great too! haha 🙂

Check them out here

They even have a side zipper pocket for your key/money.

Biking and Running

I didn’t use Lola for biking because I didn’t want to scratch her up if I happened to fall. Apparently the 305 is named Lopez (never knew) and he’s one tough cookie so I strapped him onto my handlebars. Luckily I didn’t fall so he was safe!


Alex and I went bike riding on the bike path!

It’s 4.24 miles long and then we turned around and came back.



Mileage MPH Time
4.24 10.6 24:02
4.25 12.3 20:41

best mph: 16.5

Think I’m getting a lot more comfortable and confident on the bike. Thank goodness for padded bike shorts!!!



After the biking I ran 3 miles on the bike path. I felt so slow but really I wasn’t slow at all!


The top line is the total run and the other 3 are each of the miles broken down 🙂

Then the columns got cut off but it’s

“Total distance. Total Time. Average Pace. Average Speed. Max Speed. Total Calories. Total Ascent”

P4180056  Picture of my new sticker! “13.1 been there, run that”


HAHAHAA Alex must be sooooo happy he can’t even open his eyes!!


I’m showing off how beastly lame I am 🙂


I think my Hincapie socks gave me my wicked bike skills today. Totally.

Post Run/Bike


An incredible tasting orange that was incredibly easy to peel and a string cheese!

Also I got a new sports bra from Old Navy!! On sale for $10 but I got it for $8 something because I signed up for a rewards card….that I think turned out to a credit card. What a scammer! You don’t ask someone “would you like to save 20% by getting a Old Navy Rewards card” and then sign them up for a Old Navy Credit card. UGH!

At least the sports bra is cool?

I like the color a ton!



Alright, I have been challenged to cook something I’ve never cooked before. This really WILL be a challenge because I don’t have a stove!! The only cooking devices I have are a microwave and toaster. Now if you help me come up with something amazing to cook via microwave I will attempt this challenge!! 🙂 Otherwise I’ll have to wait til Friday when I’m at a house I can cook food at.

Any suggestions for something to cook/try?


Things that make me happy

– Getting better at biking
– Still having my fast running after taking a week off
– Getting to see my parents/dog this weekend! (wish it was for longer than a few hours)
– Watching Alex run outdoor track


How about some carbs with that?


Alright yesterday’s breakfast looked like this


Hello peanut butter whole wheat bagel. Nice to see you again.



Cheese Tortellini with a piece of bread


off day!!



Fettuccini was awful, rice was awful. I only had one cheese bread slice.


Then I had fruity cheerios! YUM!



and unpictured string cheese and newman o’s
