Racing

 

I don’t think I’ve talked about my summer races.

July 4th: Macklind Mile – Downhill mile race
July 31st: XC kickoff – 5k cross country race

So as you can see I have a race coming up this sunday. Exciting? Obviously. I absolutely LOVE racing! It’s what all the training is for, to be a better racer. I really have no idea what time I’ll get for my mile but I hope it’s better than 6:12 which is my PR as of now.

Guest Post

 

So I’ve been asked to write a guest post and I really have no idea what to write about.

Q: What would you like to see me write about in a guest post?

Cameras

I really want to get a new camera that produces amazing photos for the blog. However I have no idea what kind of camera to get. So I’m going to ask you all for advice!

Q: What’s a good camera to have for blogging purposes and getting a nice clear and crisp, very detailed photo?

Q: What kind of camera do you have/use?

Leap Year was not so good and very predictable but I loved Valentine’s Day. Taylor Swifts character cracked me up hahaha too funny!

Foam Rolling

I didn’t make my own foam rolling post because I found so much useful information online and they explain technique and “the best ways” much better than I could. So if you are interested in foam rolling and how to use your foam roller, check out these sites.

Foam Roller Exercises for Easing Tight Muscles

Running Times: Working your Injuries

Matt From The Kitchen of a Runner did a few posts on foam rolling as well.

Part 1: Foam Rolling, What is it?

Part 2: How To Use a Foam Roller

Part 3: Stretching and Core Work Using a Foam Roller

So hopefully you all find some useful information to help you on your foam rolling friendship!!

 

Look Forward to

  • Justin’s Nut Butter Giveaway
  • Monthly Running Recap

Both will be later today! So keep a look out!

Running, running and running, running

Last night’s dinner

P5270001

Chicken Lo Mein and crab rangoon. Yes, I ate all of that.

Running Outfit

P5270009

Nike Sports Bra, Reebox Shorts

P5270018

Run

Legs are still feeling fatigued when I run and very lazy but I think all the water I’m drinking is helping.

Post Run

P5270023

Chocolate Milk, Water and Foam Roller (my new bff)  🙂

Graham’s Bff is his pillow. My dad claims he’s his bff, but I think his pillow is.

P5270007

They are inseparable. It’s even got some wear marks on it. Do your pets carry around something that is their “security blanket?”

I need some new sports bras that can be worn just by themselves and inexpensive. Any ideas?

I really love the nike dri fit and the brooks ones but I really don’t like spending more than 10 bucks or 15 on a sports bra.

Things that make me happy
– Running in just a sports bra and shorts
– my dog
– my new foam roller

Here’s what I’ve been up to!

A few nights ago I made a chocolate shake and drank it with my new glass straw from Strawesome 🙂

Yesterday went like this:
(Times approximate)

8:30am: Woke up and got ready to run

8:45am: Find out my ipod is dead, so attempt to charge it

9:00am: Figure out my ipod is messed up and let dad try to fix it while I go for a run.

runday1

9:40am: Take a shower

10:00am: Figure out my ipod has lots of problems

10:30am: Go pick up a new ipod battery in hopes that is what is wrong. Also stop at Big River Running 🙂

Spend the rest of the afternoon trying to figure out what is wrong.

2:00pm: Eat lunch

IMAG0360

3:00pm: Drive to Alex’s

Last night’s dinner

Out of shape and dehydrated. Does that sum up the times?

Breakfast

P5230020

Minus the grapes. Those will be eaten very shortly.

Lunch

P5240022

So nutritious right? Needless to say, we’ve been gone a week and need some grocery shopping 🙂

Mishap

So I left my Coming of Age in Mississippi book on the plane. I am not the smartest tool in the shed. 😦 I only had 50 pages left to read too.

……I know what I’ll be having for lunch tomorrow.

Biking

Went biking with a friend. I am awful on actual roads/sidewalks. Basically I don’t like riding where cars are present. I have a big fear of getting hit by a car :(  Needless to say, we only did about 5.4 miles before I was done.

Things that make me happy

– The fact I’m pretty decent at running to make up for my awful biking skills
– Fresh Fruit
– Seeing friends again!
