The Dreadmill

I got back SUPER late from Atl yesterday.
We got majorly lost looking for the art show, and slightly lost again trying to find our way back to the interstate.
So my run scheduled for the morning simply didn't happen.

Instead, I drove my lazy butt to the gym and got on the (cue horror music) treadmill.
Twice in one week?
Weird, I know.

I'm being overly dramatic.
It really wasn't all that bad.
I busted out the 6 miles coach had scheduled.
Now I'm back home, showered, lounging around in a bikini for no apparent reason, and about to go lounge on the screen porch and read Harry Potter.

Happy Saturday!

Fave Fridays

Wahoo for Fridays!
I pumped out a speed day via treadmill yesterday, and today I'm taking it easy.
We're heading into Atlanta to pick up my sister from orientation, and then we're meeting up with the birth mom and going to an art showing.

So anyways, here are 3 things I've been into lately.

1. Sudoku: I love doing sudoku while I watch tv or listen to music. It's not too much of a brain buster, but it makes me feel productive.

2. Harry Potter: This has been a constant love since elementary school. You know how many times I've dreamed of being a Weasley? I'm re-reading the series for like the tenth time now. Needless to say I'm looking forward to Pottermore.

3. South Park: This is such a guilty pleasure! I'm not always a big fan of South Park, but every now and then I'll watch a couple episodes and catch myself giggling. Jonas Brother and evil Mickey Mouse episode? Favorite episode of all time.

Wonky Wednesday

I'm ready for real life to start again!
I'm losing track of the days of the week.

Yesterday was a solid group practice!
We had a good number show up, and my fellow captain (Sam) and I enjoyed talking to some new faces.
Even better: the run went well!

Lately the heat and humidity has made me feel like poo, but yesterday's run was glorious!
4 miles of bliss.

Today's run was 5 miles of slightly LESS bliss, but it was still a much better run than usual.
But aside from that today has been a day filled with food.
Veggie chili and a Mediterranean salad at the Corner Cafe, several cups of cereal, 3 bananas, and then a grilled cheese and bowl of grits at the Waffle House.

But whatever. It was a worry-free waistline day, although I'm not positive my stomach will be agreeing with me tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

My high school starts back in two weeks.
Holy cheezits, I didn't even realize.
Needless to say I'll wait until the day before to go get my supplies.

I'm only taking one class at my high school this year (senior year).
I'm dual enrolled at my local college, so I'll be taking the rest of my classes there.
My biggest concern is getting to cross country practices on time. (Fingers crossed with on campus parking!)

My runs have been a bit of a struggle lately, but I've been getting them in.
My mileage has severely decreased, but coach is making sure to make those miles count.
I busted out a 7:18 mile last Thursday, which is the fastest mile I've put out before.
I took it as 'runner Jessie' showing 'fat Jessie' who's boss.

Anywhos, there's not much more to report here.
I've been sleeping in a lot (I need a job!) and trying not to eat my own weight in snacks out of boredom.
Is it said that I'm actually ready for school to be back?
