Well let’s recap yesterday shall we?
I woke up to this!!
Yes, that is the view from my window. You can’t see anything!! The fog has taken over!!
But then after class it looked like this
What an improvement! I thought it was going to be horrible and foggy like that all day.
Peanut butter whole wheat bagel with some chocolate chips on top!!
Trader Joes Cinnamon Almonds
Bratwurst with cheese, mac n cheese, chicken tenders. I only ate the brat and two chicken tenders plus 3 forkfulls of mac n cheese. Let’s just say, it was not very good!
So I went back for seconds!
Piece of pepperoni pizza, cheese bread and sausage pizza. By the way, I don’t eat the crusts.
Had a 5 mile tempo planned. For some reason I had huge chest bubbles and stomach acid. I think it may have been the orange juice from lunch. Do you think? So I had to stop a few times and between mile 4 and 5 I took like a 10 minute break and sat down in the grass because there was a lot of pressure in my chest and it was a beautiful day.
5 mile tempo in 38:09 @ 7:37 pace
My legs felt good and so did my breathing, it was just my chest that was causing me problems.
Went and got a pepperoni pizza fold. mmmm.
Alex and I ate outside on a sewer. The grass was wet 🙁
And of course had some chocolate milk for recovery!
Has anyone watched the episode of Food Revolution online? I heard the 2 hour premiere is this friday but there is an episode up on ABC.com and I watched it last night. Jamie Oliver is such a kind soul and it really made me feel sad when he started crying because all he does is care for people. It was really interesting on what is being served to children and I can’t wait to continue watching to see what else he can do!!
My dad went in early to work so I had a brunch.
Doesn’t it look like a face? hah funny.
I took some of his trail mix!
So yummy. Most of the trail mix comes from Whole Foods and some from Costco all mixed together in pure yumminess!
Originally I was supposed to do a 4 mile progressive run. But I had a bad nights sleep and was really sore. Saturday I had a 3 mile planned, so I compromised and did a 3 mile progressive run.
3 miles in 22:30 @ 7:30 pace
Then of course ice time!!
Then I headed over to Alex’s house and we went to Maggiano’s Little Italy for dinner and ordered family style.
Cheesy Garlic Bread
Chicken Pesto Linguini
Chicken and Truffle Tortellaci
It was very delicious as always!
We then went back to his house and watched Music and Lyrics, which he has never seen!!
Woke up and went to breakfast with Alex, his grandma Henthorn and his brother Zack. We went to Ihop and I ordered the Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Next time I am ordering the kids size because 4 pancakes were wayyyyyy too much!
times 4!!!! Yeah, awful.
Then we went to REI and I picked up my first pair of padded bike shorts!! We also walked around and dreamt of all the wonderful things we would buy if we had the money. Yeah, it was fun!!
Then we went back to my house and hung out with my parents and the furball aka graham our dog.
We had to do a run. I had to do 4 miles easy. So I went without my garmin!! I figured I’d take it real easy if I didn’t know my time or pace. WRONG! I went faster than 35 minutes because it took me a total of 35 minutes and I stopped to tie my shoe twice and had to stop at tons of lights.
It was a sad night because KU lost 🙁
I don’t even want to talk about it.
But dinner was great!! My mom’s Italian Meatloaf, some perogies (pasta stuffed with mashed potatoes), and garlic bread.
It was delicious!!! Then Alex, my parents and I played bowling on the Wii.
Alex left and then my parents and I played some Wii. I love playing games with them. I just loved being home.
Then today I had to head back to cape. BOOO HOOOO!!!
My parents were kind enough to drive me to Alex’s house because I had left my car there and he was going to pick me up at my house in the car but I forgot to give him my keys. DUH! I can be so forgetful.
My dad helped us pack and then Alex and I were off!
Lunch was Jack n the Box. I ordered 2 tacos and a chicken sandwich.
We got back and it was pouring cats and dogs!! More like worms really hahaha.
So I did a dreaded 60 minutes on the treadmill. I was supposed to do 9 miles but there was no way I could go any longer, my legs hurt so bad. So I did 7 miles.
Dinner was olive’s pepperoni pizza fold.
So now you are caught up on the weekend!!
