What a Run!

What a Run!

Good evening! I am so happy this day is coming to an end because Friday is tomorrow, and I am going HOME on Saturday :) I am so excited. I haven't been home since I got to school in late August. So I am thrilled it is only 2 days away! Also, my mom has been giving me the up to date status on all of my packages I keep receiving at home. I think I am up to 8 she says! What what?! That is also something I am looking forward to as well ;)

This morning again I was a bit rushed eating my breaky. I always think I have more time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings than I really do! I got up and showered and then began to eat and then realized I had a little less than 10 minutes to scarf down my yummy yogurt mess ( I would have much rather enjoyed every bite and taken my time but oh well). It takes a bit longer getting ready for the day with a roomie, ya know?!

But anyways enough rambling, I think I just need to get up a few minutes earlier! My yogurt mess that I had to scarf down was Vanilla Brown Cow yogurt, Kashi Go Lean, a a banana, and a scoop of Teddie's peanut butter with milk. Now someone commented a few days back saying they like the idea of how I put milk in my yogurt?! Now, I would just like to clarify I DO NOT do that! When I mean I have milk with my breakfast I mean I have a glass of milk. You can sometimes see the milk with my breakfast in my pics. Look out for it next time ;)

This morning I had three classes, Sociology, Biblical Theology, and Biochemistry. I think my Biochem test went very well (knock on wood) and I am happy it is over. Now tomorrow I just have my Philosophy Midterm which I have to study for tonight!

Lunch was a smoked turkey whole wheat wrap with swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, with pretzels, a Red Delicious, and milk.

This afternoon I took a nice deserved nap! I slept for about an hour and then I woke up so confused. I totally thought it was Friday and that I missed my Philisophy test, I was so lost and confused. That is why I dislike naps a bit. I always wake up clueless. But luckily my roomie assured me it was still Thursday and we had lalcrosse practice at 5. Phew!

Today at practice we went on a RUN! Yes, we went on a run I tell you. What's a run I ask myself?! Since I haven't run (long distance) since early March if I can remember. About seven months, can you believe that?! Now all through the summer I wasn't allowed to do any exercise, I mean I did light activites like reffing lacrosse but nothing too strenuous. But now for a few weeks I have been given the O-K to start practicing only a few days a week, which has been going well. But at practice we haven't really been doing any long runs, I mean in lacrosse you do short sprints so I have been able to keep up with that. So today when my coach told us we were going for a run, I was super nervous. I mean I haven't really run in soo long! I didn't know how my body was going to handle it or if I was going to be able to do it! So the run began and I felt soo good, it started up really well. Then the run soon got a bit harder and my quads began to hurt but I kept running. Now I DID NOT push myself! If I felt like I needed to slow down or walk I would have, trust me! But I must tell you I was able to keep up for the whole run. Mind you it was just a little run around campus, but it was the perfect distance for me to start off running :)

Oh and I must say I did better than a few girls! Not to brag or anything. But one of my teammates actually asked me if it felt good to be running again and I was like yeah! Then she said told me I was doing really well and I was kicking my @$$! So I was happy about that!

Dinner tonight was a piece of broiled chicken, vegetable blend, and an artisan dinner roll with milk.

Tonight will be spent studying away and watching Grey's obvs. Everyone have a nice Thursday night! Only one more work/school day until the weekend!
Also, check out this SWEET giveaway as well :)

Congrats on your run! It is hard for me to get back into running when I take awhile off too. Good job though on not over doing it. I still have that problem sometimes! :)
