I would be totally lying if I told you I wasn’t running around like a chicken with its head cut off right now. Reality has started to sink in and there’s just SO MUCH TO DO! On top of it all, I’m about to part with my Sammie 🙁
Awwwwwww I got this Honda when I had just turned 19 and it has seen me through Alabama, Florida and South Carolina. Countless road trips, spontaneous adventures and good times. So so so many memories in this car….RIP Sammie!
In it’s place, I’m hopefully about to trade it in for a 2009 white Honda Civic which will be shipped to me in Santa Rosa next week. I’m naming her Abby 🙂 There’s just no way in the world Sammie could make it cross country….poor, poor Sammie.
Let’s see….what else have I done today? Oh yeah, I ran 10 miles!
Wooooowwweeeeee!!!! It actually was a really, really good run and I just tried to soak it all up since I knew it would be LAST! I used the Galloway method the whole time (per advice of the athletic trainer I saw last week) and did a 5:1 run walk ratio, finishing in 1:44. My shins actually didn’t bother me at all and I focused the whole time on alignment. Before I left, I ate a peanut butter sandwich and while I ran, I drank gatorade and then around mile 6, and then 8, I ate Annie’s fruit snacks! The sugar really did make a difference in my performance and I was able to keep up a steady pace and make it without hitting the wall or anything.
When I got home I ate the only thing I could find…..fast!
a HUGE bowl of Nature’s Path optimum cereal in skim milk. We didn’t have any bananas or any fruit whatsoever!
And then my mom dragged me to get the one thing I couldn’t leave home without:
A FLU SHOT! boooooooo and ouch!
I then ate a bar from my purse:
And a BIG turkey whole wheat pita from pita pit with baked ruffles and a green tea for lunch!
Sorry if this is a totally spastic post…..I’m sitting on top of mountains of clothes that have to be packed. Surprisingly I’m not sore at all from my run, which is AWESOME because I don’t have time for sore quads today!
