On a completely different note because that is how my brain functions. Many people have actually asked about what my plans are this summer. (what you guys think I make plans that far in advance?) Well you are correct.
I go home to southern VA May 20.
I actually have a really busy summer planned ahead between lifeguarding, taking 4 classes online (at different times) and running and swimming. So my summers are always overwhelming. I like that way because I enjoy to lay by the pool, maybe once per week. Oh wait-no I don’t-I’d rather be at the beach laying out once per week.
I’ll actually be driving up to NYC twice this summer. UGH, whenever I try and get out of NY, it drags me back. We are dropping my brother off at the Merchant Marine Academy in early July and then I have an open water swim in early August. So both will be enjoyable. If you live near the city holla at a sister.
But other then that no scheduled plans yet. Although I’m hoping to visit one of my besties this summer so we will see. My summer sounds a lot busier then it really is.
On to my next confession. I’m not making any May “bloggers” goals because they aren’t for me. I never follow through and it’s a waste of space. The only thing I can promise you is that May will be full of my jazzy phrases and socially awkwardness and you’ll have to deal with it twice as much because my brother and I are basically twinnies.
In the gym aspect-
Today I ran 3 miles. Not exactly what I wanted to do but the arctrainers were all taken at the gym. Oh well, it didn’t really hurt and it took it at an easy pace for me. I was really frustrated at first because all my favorite machines were taken and it’s hard to run on a full stomach but I realized my body won’t kill me for doing another machine.
Also today was some swimming:
5X200 free interval
It is the first time I have done anything remotely moderate in the pool since season and it went pretty well I think. No complaints from me.
And finally my eats of today. Typical Tuesday is filled with a waffle in the morning as always.
For lunch today, I went with Bonna to our dining hall. Instead of getting my roast beef sandwich, I decided to get an egg white omelet and salad. I asked for no onions but the worker gave them to me anyways. Instead of arguing because he is seriously frightening so I choked them down. Not really I picked every single one out and probably spent a good 15 minutes doing so.
I bought more kale so that is what I had for dinner. Kale and steak. I have been craving steak since I finished my half on Sunday-I just haven’t had the time (or energy to go to the store, get some and grill it up). Don’t let the size fool you, this is 1.25 pounds of steak.
Because that is how I roll. On a side note-My favorite part of the steak is the fat. I love love love me some good old steak fat. Seriously if you enjoy grimey steak fat then please come live at my house and we can cook some up together.
Question for you:
1. Any big plans this summer?
2. What is the most sore you have ever been from a workout?
For me I think it was when I ran my first 5k in flats. Racing flats don’t provide any support and my calves were extremely sore. In fact, I’ll going to have to break them out soon again for my 5ks. Speaking of racing flats, at what distance do you wear them? Do you wear them in 10ks? I am debating if I want to wear mine in my 10k. I have always worn them in 5ks…
