Well guys, I’m not very internet savvy but I realized if I just unhook the ethernet cord from the back of the computer and plug it into my latop, I’ll get the internet! Genius! Still not sure if I will be able to post more than once a day but I guess I’ll find all that out today during “orientation” when I get my schedule and learn more of the ropes. ahh! Nervous!
Anyways, this morning I set my alarm for 6:45 so that I could get a nice run in. I ran three miles in 30 minutes but randomly burned 540 calories. Hmm? The run was hard mostly because my muscles felt like they were still asleep but………….MY SHIN DID NOT HURT! I repeat—my first pain-free run yet!!!! I stretched my calves out thoroughly beforehand and warmed up with a 5 minute walk and then afterwards I stretched as well….and no pain! It was amazing!
Before my run I snacked on this bar:
But it went right through me and I was starving the entire run. I seriously felt like my muscles were eating themselves. Note to self: eat more protein!
When I got back, I made some powerful oatmeal with 2 packets of Optimum Power oatmeal (Nature’s Path brand), half a scoop of vanilla protein powder and a sliced banana.
Hopefully this will keep me full for awhile!
I’m relaxing with coffee and watching the Today show. I have to admit, it’s nice to be able to watch tv again since in Orlando I didn’t have cable! I could get used to this! 😉
Have a wonderful day yall—I’ll report back later with lunch and snacks!
