Julia Child Gave Me Her Skills

Boy do we have a lot to catch up on! 

Running

 

6 Miles in 48:00 [8:00 per mile]

rotated between indoor track and treadmill. ran a total of 48 minutes. 

decided to do a nice and easy day. 

I made a nice cut off t shirt hah. I did an easy run before running with Jessica later in the night. I needed to make up mileage because I took an unscheduled off day because my calf muscle really hurt from the fartlek I did. 

3.5 Miles – no time

4 Miles – no time

8.1 Miles in 1:05:33 [8:05 per mile]

Ran all 8 miles on the indoor track and truly felt wonderful!! Here’s my playlist of music that I listened to. I just loaded it all on my ipod today!

I of course recovered with some STRAWBERRY milk!! The strawberry syrup was on sale at Target and of course I had to snatch that up! 

Total miles for the week: 36 miles

Obviously miss Nicki Minaj destroyed this playlist. I listened to it all the way through and then still had about 20 minutes left of running so I played Hit the Lights a few times over and over because it seriously got me pumped!!

 Food

I have had a ton of new food recently so let’s start!! 

 

This was spinach tortellini stuffed with three cheeses. I cooked up some chicken and threw it on top as well as alfredo sauce. It was an amazing dinner!! 

 

This was spinach with some cooked ground beef and mozzarella cheese on top. I also put the leftover alfredo sauce on top and mixed it all up. SO good!! 

Now look at how beautiful that salad is. It seriously was the best salad I have ever had. I rinsed some spinach and cut up strawberries and put them on top. Then I got some walnuts that I spent an arm and a leg on but it was so worth it! I got a big ole bag for these salads. Then some raspberry vinaigrette on top! Amazing. 

Then of course I just cooked up some fast spaghetti since Big Brother was coming on! I threw in the other ground beef I made a few days ago into the sauce. BOOM amazing. 

I completely have been owning in the kitchen obviously. I can’t wait to make so many more salads soo good.

Saturday

 

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.

Sunday

 

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!!
