Trail Me Thursday Morning Edition

Welcome to this week’s morning edition of Trail Me Thursday.  Minus I forgot to post this morning after class but this is what I did. (Entertaining…I know).

First confession (I guess this post is full of rambles thrown together into a day format) I am convinced I am going senile.  I can never remember who I tell what-if I type things out or if tell someone in real life too.  With this blog, I can never remember if I tell you guys or call my parents and let them know.  So if I repeat things…blame it on my lack of some vitamin.

With that being said-I decided that 6:30 is the perfect time to wake up for me every day this semester.  I have class at 8:00am MWF, I like to read blogs, eat and casually prepare for my day rather than rush everything.

Today I woke up and my knee wasn’t hurting for the second day in the row.  (dear knee…let’s make that 100000000000 days in a row.  Thanks-and you can throw in staying injury free throughout the body in that agreement too).   So I decided instead of doing the 5.1 mile loop I’ve been doing all week-I would wait till after class and run longer.

And 250 words later, I’ll really begin my day.  I woke up and made some pancakes and put on decently real girl clothes.  By decently real girl-I mean I put on a v-neck shirt, sequen shorts, leggings and UGGS.  Now that I’m in a class with nearly all freshman who are in the “whole I’m gonna look cute and impress dudes phase”, I must at least not look like a slob…I guess.  So I decided to wear sweater leggings…step up from running leggings I guess.  Or as the gas station coffee man calls them “jogger jeans.”

So let’s see here.

My day began on Pontiac Ice-Rink (ie my housemate and I’s driveway is legit a frozen sheet of ice…and we both drive Pontiacs…we are so clever with names).

I scraped the ice off my car.  So skillfully.

Yes I can see out of can't?

Got some gas for my car because I probably wouldn’t made it the two miles to campus.

Which is an excuse for gas station coffee.

I mean gas station cream.

And they had a new flavor which made me go a bit crazy and take another photo.

wired. That is all.

And then I went to my marathon of classes.  My classes were pretty interesting today-not too bad.  Then afterwords-I went for an 8ish mile run.  It felt like utter crap to be perfectly honest, but I hvaen’t run anything more than 5 miles in a week so it should have.  I also haven’t run serious hills (my area up here is full of them) so my legs felt heavy.  My knee, however, didn’t feel terrible so that is a plus.

Now I’m going to be lazy for the rest of the night.

Question for you:  What did you do today?  Enlighten me. 


Trail Me Thursday Week 1 (Home Edition)

I have been posting an assortment of blogs and vlogs but no daily blogs about what exactly I’ve been up too?( I know you care so much).

Why because I’m boring.

Just kidding, I’ve been using my time to catch up on some random things and just packing to go back up school (which I’m going back tomorrow wahhh).  I hear it’s like -10 or something up there but I’m not looking at Upstate NY weather. 

Anyways-I’m starting something called Trail Me Thursday, where I feel the need to put you (the blogging world) into my back pocket and take you on a journey through my day.  Keep in mind this is my last day in the South so it might be a tad different than usual. 

I’ve mentioned on Dailymile but not so much here, I’m taking this entire week off of running.  My knee has felt really squirrelly and I don’t want to do anything rash so I’m just chilling and Arctraining.  I’m really upset about it but I’m not going to sob all over the interwebs.

So instead I did an hour on the Arctrainer in the morning.

I got lunch with aDuBs as Panera.  I *needed* to get my salmon salad again before I left.  Of course it didn’t disappoint per usual.  I love salmon and I love salads with feta cheese. 

Afterwords-I finished packing and cleaning and then drove up North (45 mins) to meet aDuBs again (near her school), this time for froyo.  Bffers got to do what a bffers go to do.   I needed to see my babycakes again. 

Please aDuBs just pose with this froyo....that's what food bloggers do and stuff. You know, pose with ice cream.

We had an awesome time and I actually didn’t have as much froyo as I would have liked this break.  I guess being busy got the best of me or something ha.   No matter-I had lots of gas station coffee and hot cocoa so I guess it was a good trade off.

And then I pumped my gas for the 12 hour drive in the morning.  I know…I live the dream. 

Love me some gas pumping...

Anyways-I’m off to school in the morning.  (wah 12 hours straight north).  Catch ya’ll on the flip side.


Question for you:  What did you do today on Trail Me Thursday?
