When traveling it is so hard to find decent food. So freaking hard. Today was no exception and I decided I wasn’t going to worry about it too much. Airport food is just so grimey and delicious.
I had a Greek omelet with home fries in Newark airport on my three hour layover. Since you guys don’t know of my Newark adventures. I hate that airport…I will avoid it like I avoid running on my heels. My freshman year I had a layover for 12 hours over there, and they proceeded to tell me, my only way of getting home was flying to SAN FRANSICO and then rerouting me back to Norfolk unless I wanted to wait three days for a new flight. So NY->CA->VA. Perfect sense… My flight from Norfolk left at 6:20am, I sat in front of screaming kicking child and then sat in the airport of Newark for three hours.
Still jealous of my life?
After both my flights-I had a four hour drive to my actual school. I ended up getting back to school around 5pm and went for a 7 mile run around 5:30. My legs needed some sort of movement.
Here are some more eats:
Here are my stats from last week, as promised I said I was taking it easy.
2.5 hours Arctrainer
2 hours swimming (6000 meters)
35 miles running. All my miles were at a slower pace for me.
**I’m really proud of this week actually. My college pool was closed during the only time I could go. I had not planned on swimming at home (if you look at my blog last Sunday I had planned 1 hour of swimming), but then I decided that I would swim not once but twice at home.
This Is a huge step for my confidence back in swimming and also a huge step in my training. I would have honestly done the Arctrainer burned another 1000 calories in the hour and felt awesome in regards to the amount of calories burned, but I swam, burned 500 calories and still felt awesome.
I have a tendacy to focus (in all aspects) that more is better , quantity of quality. I feel that is typical of a lot of type A personalities. That is why we speed and are always on the move. More miles=more success, but that isn’t true at all. You can’t have equality workouts all the time but you can have more quality days but taking more rest.
Anywho-off my tangent.
Next weeks goals:
FLOWER CITY HALF MARATHON.
3 hours swimming
2 hours arctainer (maybe)
40 miles (13.1 are FC baby)
I’m super pumped for this race. I’m also super pumped because my dad agreed to speed down after finals and let me do the Williamsburg half marathon May 22 (but duh Daddykins will be doing it too)! Since I wasn’t racing Plattsburgh, and after talking to a friend and realizing that would be 3 halfs in about a month, I still think it will be feasible. I recovered rather well from Plattsburgh last week because I treated it as a long run versus a hard pounding death race.
If you are interested in seeing my summer race schedule just holler, but they are shorter distance races.
Questions for you:
- 1. What is your next “big race”?
- 2. Got a (not-so) great airport experience?
