Catching up on weekend posts?
- I finished my 12th week of training with 100+ minutes of outdoor running.
- I made a batch of vegan pumpkin pecan bars… that are disappearing before my eyes.
- I lived my life.
Now, moving on… today begins the 8th week of the semester. You know what that means!? When Friday finally rolls around, I will be more than halfway done with another semester of college – yesss. It also means that we’ve entered mid-semester madness. I knew signing up for a half-marathon in the middle of October was a crazy idea, but I did, and now I’m ‘paying’ for it. I have THREE exams this week in my hardest classes… of course I do. Life likes to make us scatter brained – literally! – from time to time. I’m not sure how in the world my brain will be able to absorb 4 chapters of food science + 4 chapters of physiology + the details of carbohydrate and lipid digestion/absorption, but it will have to try.
I am choosing to take my nutrition exam early [scheduled for Monday], so I can enjoy every moment of my special weekend without worrying about icky tests. Smart idea? Would you do the same?
Since I’m swamped with exams this week, I thought it would only be fair for ya’ll to take a quiz ;)
Let’s talk lipids.
What is the DRI [Dietary Reference Intake] of cholesterol?
list the fat-soluble vitamins.
True or False. Omega-6 is an anti-inflammatory.
Thankfully I’m tapering this week, so I don’t have the added stress of trying to fit in time to run a couple dozen miles. However, I’m still planning to get in a bit of daily movement at the WREC each day. Exercise = my stress reliever! I don’t have a set plan for my week of workouts, except for a yoga class Wednesday evening. I’m allowing my body to decide on this one, while aiming for at least 15 miles of running before race day.
Well, life is calling… must keep calm & carry on.
