I really couldn't decide what alliteration I wanted to use today, or really what I wanted to blog about, but I knew I did want to blog. Anyone ever feel that way?
It also seems like I have a bazillion ideas when I'm busy, not near a computer, or should be paying attention in class and then forget everything when I get a chance to get it all out.
The tragic, mellow-dramatic life of a blogger. ;)
Well I'm going with the topic of fitness because I'm currently fueling for a little run outdoors this afternoon (with some yummalicious Chobani and Naturebox granola...I die) because the weather turned to pure gorgousness overnight.
Seriously, it was like 3 degrees out yesterday and now it's 50 degrees. Welcome to Nebraska, friends!
|Okay this picture is from December, but it's so pretty! And it's Nebraska!|
First of all, if you didn't know, I moved to the city where I attend classes a couple of weeks ago. I was driving two hours a day 3 to 5 times a week, not to mention the fact that it was difficult to participate in things on campus like study sessions or lab group meet-ups when I lived in a different city.
With moving to a new place, new routines need to be established. One of them being a fitness routine....yeah I haven't quite gotten there yet. I think the first week or so I was more concerned with unpacking and settling in and figuring out classes (yeah, I moved the first week of class).
I have, however been walking 2 miles (at LEAST) on campus a day, equating to about 10 miles a week, so I am counting that as my walking that I'm supposed to be doing on Fridays with the first part of my half training schedule. (PS Feel free to use that schedule, but show some credit to me and Hal Higdon if you post it online...thanks!)
I also managed to make it to the apartment gym a couple of times, which isn't too bad. There are three treadmills, one of them in front of the tv and the other two are to the right...so you do that awkward trying-to-run-straight-but-distraced-by-the-tv thing if you get the right ones. But it's super close and a little more convenient than figuring out how to carry all my gym stuff with me to go to the campus rec center....which I might end up working there so I will probably have to figure that out.
I even ran outside for a little bit around the apartment complex. Apparently there's a trail nearby that my roomie and her group of friends run on...at 5 in the morning. Haven't made it to any of those runs yet, ha! She works out early every morning I think so it's starting to motivate me to get out and MOVE. Benefits to having a running roomie!
I wore tights as pants...but I DID make sure my butt was covered thank you very much! ;)
|These photos are from last week...my boxes got all unpacked on Monday! :)|
Holy buckets it was cold! The walk turned to run turned to sprint and my fingers were numb by the time I got to the door. I frantically entered in the code thinking, "It will be okay, I will be inside soon." Nothing. Over and over I entered that darned code and the door never opened. Now I'm wondering...if that was at 7am..when does the gym open? So weird.
I'm not sure if any of this above post was helpful..but it might show you that we are all human and not every "healthy living blogger" lifts weights/runs 5 miles/goes to fitness classes every single day.
At least I don't. And it's okay!
Tomorrow is a new day and we will get back on track!
Actually, today is a new day and I'm gonna go run!
PS. Something cute I found when I was looking for pictures on my camera:
Totally forgot about this picture of my new baby nephew! He's almost two months now!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will be back tomorrow with some fun news...that could involve YOU!
