WOW a lot to catch up

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it!! I’ve been so busy and have hardly have had time to get online, much less blog.

So here’s a giant recap!

 

Tuesday

My mom got home and wanted to take me out to dinner before I left for Alex’s.

We went to the Pasta House, which was not a good choice. They have raised their prices and the last few times I have been I have gotten incredibly ill. It’s truly sad because this used to be my favorite restaurant growing up and it’s gone completely downhill.

dinner2

We started off with the cheesy bread because it was on special for 1.99

P8170015

Of course I ordered the tortellini because I always do haha. FAVORITE pasta ever.

P8170017

Except when the sauce is drowning the poor guys. This is why Pasta House Tortellini does not make my top 3 list.

Top 3 list:
1. Massa’s Italian Restaurant
2. Old Spaghetti Factory
3. Erios Italian Ristorante

 

Then I went to Alex’s because we were leaving early the next day to head to school!

 

Wednesday

Left around 9 for school because we had to do some last minute things before. Got to school around 10:30 and literally wasn’t done unloading our cars until 1 or 1:30. My whole body was/is still sore.

Were rushing so we didn’t eat breakfast and then by the time we were unpacked the cafeteria was closed, so hello Rowdy’s Fried Food. Cheesy tots are back! hahah

lunch2

P8180018

Two corn dogs, cheesy tots and an unpictured gatorade.

run

Ran with my friend Lanie at 4:30 when the sun was really hot. But we had no other timespot to run. Was supposed to do my midweek long run of 6 miles but with the traveling and moving my body was so sore I could hardly move.

Run: 4 Miles in 35:00 [8:45 per mile]

Took it slow because of the heat and hills. It’ll take a bit to get adjusted to hills everywhere.

outfit

P8180019

haha awkward but there’s the outfit and all my stuff still in boxes.

 

dinner2

We had a team get together for dinner and had some homemade pasta.

I didn’t eat much because I was still full from lunch and had just gotten done running.

Yesterday

snacks

P8180023

pre run fuel with water

run

Had practice at 7am. Just a recovery run.

Run: 4.01 Miles in 32:19 [8:03 per mile]

8:35
ran with one group of girls for the first mile then felt pretty good so the next three are with the first group of girls.
7:53
7:56
7:53

outfit

P8180020

It’ll get less awkward, promise. hah. I’ll find a better picture setup/not such a weird angle.

breakfast2

Got done with practice and of course it’s time for post run fuel!

IMAG0174

Eggs, sausage and ham. The eggs were a bit runny and made me feel sick so I only had about half.

IMAG0175

Also a huge glass of chocolate milk! Best recovery drink in my mind. That’s Alex saying “food is good fuel for runners” haha not really.

 

lunch2

We were out shopping and missed lunch AGAIN so we picked up some taco bell.

I got a beefy 5 layer burrito. You know what that looks like.

 

dinner2

IMAG0176

As I got my lunch today I thought about “dad’s going to comment on how white/brown/yellow my meal looks” Thankfully they had a fruit bowl and I dug out the grapes and pineapple. My chicken there was really hard and nasty so I ate alex’s (see below) It was good and I traded him it for a piece of pizza.

Today

snacks

P8180023

run

warm up - 10min - 1.15 miles
cool down - 10 min - 1.02 miles

Hill workout: 2.62 Miles in 21:43 [8:17 per mile]

total daily mileage: 4.79 miles

Then we had an ice bath. Those hurt my feet sooo much. I honestly wouldn’t mind them so much if my feet weren’t in so much pain. I think Patrick said it best, you feel like you want to cut your own feet off hah. 10 minutes in the ice bath.

lunch2

Towers was closed AGAIN! So Rowdy’s it was.

IMAG0178

Tuna sandwich and a banana but I saved the banana for a smoothie later on. And an unpictured powerade is missing.

 

Alex and I then went to get some groceries and some more things we needed like trash cans, extension cords and a lamp etc. Thankfully that should be enough of buying things. I think everything is bought except for maybe the toilet paper and cleaning supplies in the future.

 

snacks

P8200024

Chips and cheese!! I wish I would’ve brought my Triscuits from home because my mom bought me a brand new box. But I bought a new one because I didn’t bring it. :(

dinner2

Dinner was at towers and was pretty good!

IMAG0179

My daily orange juice to keep you healthy, a bratwurst, fried okra and some corn. Yes, that is probably the most vegetables you’ll ever see on a plate of mine at one time! hah

Then they had ice cream bar but the ice cream was melted because it had been out for awhile.

IMAG0180

I took 3 bites and didn’t eat anymore.

Our dorm room looks like this!

P8200026

My bed’s the top one. If you look closely you can see Lucy looking out the window on the bed. hah. Too cute.

P8200027

Casey’s desk and our cool wall clings!

P8200028

My desk!

P8200029 P8200030

Our cool $15 bookcase/tv stand and then our sweet fridge/freezer and microwave.

Our room is really nice and spacey, I love it.

 

So now you are all caught up. This first week I might be extremely busy because there are a lot of things I have to go to for cross country with pictures, physicals etc and then school starts monday, but I promise there will be scheduled posts sometime in the future and not so sporadic!

Q: What have you been up to since I haven’t had time to read blogs at all! Had to mark “marl all as read” and felt awful!
