Okay, after looking at all of the What I Ate Wednesday posts everywhere I just couldn’t resist posting my own even though I hadn’t planned on doing so. So, as a consequence, this is more of a “What Has Happened Since Friday” post. Oh well!
Saturday morning, I saw my mom off. She’s spending the week in North Carolina with my half-sister and one of our family friends (my half-sister’s mother). Yeah, I know, we have a weird family. My mom is friends with my dad’s first wife and so am I. But we all love each other!
That night, the boyfrand and I went out to a party for one of his friends that spent the last semester in Australia and is finally back in the States. I had a really nice time, even if there wasn’t any beer pong (love!). Although there were plenty of card and dice games 😉 .
Even though we didn’t get back until early in the morning, my body still wanted to get up at 7:30 apparently. I didn’t feel bad or tired or anything, so I decided to still go for my scheduled run, which didn’t go too badly as you can see from the table above! I just made sure that I kept well hydrated is all.
Most of the rest of the day, unfortunately, was spent in the fetal position. My IBS acted up near the end of the day and the tiredness kicked in as well. The boyfrand and I ordered Chinese take-out from my favorite place and we watched a few episodes of Big Band Theory. Okay, he watched. I sort of dozed off and tried to get my intestine to cooperate.
Monday was back to the normal week. Class, work, and yoga class. This session’s classes are already 2/3 of the way done! I can’t believe it, and I’ve actually quite enjoyed this session’s classes too. I can’t believe that next week marks the end of July and, thus, the beginning of August. I even paid the first month’s rent at my new apartment today! It makes the end of summer seem like it’s coming up so fast.
Tuesday was uneventful since I don’t have class or work, although I did run and that went pretty well I think. The new shoes are still holding up quite nicely and I think they’ll be perfect for my half. Only 53 more days! Then today I had class and work again. I usually have Zumba on Wednesdays, but since mom’s gone this week I decided not to go and instead opted for Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 DVD Levels 2 AND 4 back-to-back. I did Level 2 fairly easily, but Level 4 is still whooping my butt. Hello boob sweat. TMI? Nah!
Not really sure what the rest of the evening has in store, but I have an online exam tomorrow, a few hours of work, and maybe going to start studying for my Monday exam or read for class. It’ll be an active rest day (only biking to get to/from work) and then Friday I’m going to be attempting yet another PDR: my first ever 12-miler. I want to get two in before my race, so I figure do one now, another a month or so from now, and then taper until my race on the 18th of September. It sounds good in my head at least. I’ve really enjoyed following my “Non-plan” training plan. Next time will probably be a lot different, though, since I’ll be trying to improve on speed rather than focusing solely on completeness.
I’m still looking for guest posts! Email me, shoot me a tweet or a DM, whatever!
Do you like following a set training plan or just going with the flow?
What’s the best thing that you’ve eaten lately?
