I am beginning to really enjoy these 6 am practices. No one bothers me and I feel so good just having it done and out of the way. I much prefer to swim than run at 6am. Yesterday, I failed to post a blog but for those of you who don’t know while running, I saw a family of bears. Yes-3 babies and their mother. Let us just conclude with I haven’t run the last 2 miles of my 5 mile loop so fast ever.
Happy Hump Day! Thanks to reading College Runner’s blog, I remembered this week to say it.

Today, I had an awesome practice. I was holding my pace and making my target times. I just feel in such a better mood now.
Pumpkin Oatmeal OATKINS
This is just as good as pancakes. Those of you who don’t know my love for pancakes-that is the best compliment form me a breakfast can get ha.
Insert a 1 hour run here. I had such a great swim practice, but my run left a lot to be desired. It was really windy and not too enjoyable weather so I’m not going to complain too loudly.
12:30pm-lunch with Shannon. She is also a cross country runner. I had peanut butter and yogurt on a cinnamon raisin bagel. It was quite delicious. I love the combination of peanut butter and yogurt. If you haven’t tried it, you should really get on that. I also had a pear which, the union seems to be having a lot of lately. The pear is just not pictured because he was not very photogenic.
3:00pm I mixed ½ cup Chobani yogurt, ½ cup pumpkin and 1 diet Swiss miss hot cocoa to make a pumpkin mousse type concoction before running.
Insert a slow run here. I ran on the same route I saw the bears yesterday but it was rather chilly so they must have been sleeping. I’m not too upset.
6:00pm-Dinner time. We went to Lehman because they were having a nutritional seminar at our dining hall. I didn’t really learn to much and I think they could have done a lot better but I mean not many people go to the dining hall to eat healthy. Hence why I can move through that salad bar. With proper guidance I’m sure people would have been more interested.
Today I had a flatbread sandwich with roast beef and turkey. I also had green beans and watermelon. Aram and I got a coffee cake type item, but didn’t realize it was coffee cake and so I had one bite and was not a fan. I like to drink my coffee.
Aram was eating healthy too. He had brown rice, green beans, chicken and mushrooms. He is addicted to mushrooms like I am pancakes. He is actually at the gym right now.
Well-I am off to watch Americas Next Top Model. It is the only show I actually follow besides Biggest Loser. What TV shows do you follow?
