The green light has yet to turn yellow or red. I may just as well be the Energizer Bunny. There are still no stop signs in sight. In other words, I apologize for keeping y’all hanging… after all, free coconut water is serious business. So, without further adieu, the four lucky random winners are:
Please e.mail me your mailing address, so O.N.E. can send your case of coconut water ASAP!
Despite my lack of blogging, you can bet that I’ve still been eating, and that I’ve still been running. But, more importantly, I’ve been smiling a lot more… making the most out of every moment. I have done a lot of thinking and self-reflection recently about the grander scale of life, and am happy to report that I’ve been acting on those aspirations! Carpe diem.
The other day I scared the crap outta myself when I finally [1 week before race day] decided to check the course map of the 13.1 miles I’ll be running. Let’s just say my anxiety rose 3 fold – hello, Death Hill at mile 6. Although, I feel my training has made me a stronger runner/athlete, I haven’t been trainin’ no hills. It is a bit too late to do anything about it now either, as it’s taper time. I’ll do what I can do – my best!
Training continued at the WREC through Friday.
Five Mile Friday
- 1 mi. indoor track run @ 8:40
- strength training – abs, arms & legs
- 1 mi. indoor track run @ 8:50
- 3 mi. treadmill run @ 24:00 – yay!
Today, I ran around downtown – outside! – after strolling the farmers’ market. I should have planned the timing of my run better because it the sunshine was toasty this afternoon. I called it quits after a mere 22 minutes, but it was a pleasurable, autumn run nonetheless. I don’t wear my hardcore outfit everyday ;)
This week sometime [can’t remember when] I made the best OIAJ to date.
1 c. water
1/3 c. steel cut oats
½ T flax Almond butter from the jar
1 T pecans
1 tsp. apricot jam
½ fresh peach
FYI: I bought another jar of Trader’s Joe’s Almond Butter w. Flax today – exciting!
You know what else I bought at TJ’s today? Butternut squash ravioli – they’re new! These aren’t just any squash ravioli – oh no. They’re filled with amaretti cookies and apricot kernels – I couldn’t help but think of my idol, Giada!
Simple Saturday Supper: Butternut Squash Ravioli + drizzle of organic olive olive, fresh arugula, lavender chevre & fresh black pepper
I’m going to go… I’ve gotta get back to living my healthy life as a college student. After all, there will never be another today.
Until my life’s traffic slows up again…
