Too long

Well this is embarrassing. My last post was October 16 and it is now October 28…I promise, this will never happen again.

So much has happened these last week or so, I’ll do my best to organize this post without toooo much info.

Running-

1. Since I’m doing the RunnersWorld challenge for the Disney half, I received this awesome book The Complete Book of Running .

Hands down my favorite book right now. I has everything from tips for training, stretching, food and training plans. I can’t put it down!

2. I attended my first running group yesterday. I felt like the new girl but was greatly welcomed. I enjoyed running with people and chatting, it surely makes running go by faster. The grop was only doing 7miles even though the plan said 13. I prepared for 13, so I did 13. I felt great after! No knee problems or IT band problems! **relieved** I was hoping to up it to 14 next Saturday, but with the hurricane I have a feeling the trail will be torn up 😦 I hope not though

3. Spur if the moment moment of the week: random 5k! I got an alert for it awhile ago but was unsure if I was gonna do it. Well I woke up and decided since I’ll be cooped up from the hurricane I might as well enjoy my last day outside. My time was 23:10- 10 seconds more than I had wished but whatever I had a blasted!

Food-

1. Thursday night is my Friday since I don’t have classes Friday. I wasn’t really feeling going out so I went to he market instead. My home away from home. After my gym sesh I popped over ith a huge appetite. They have a hot foods buffet section, sandwiches, bakery and pizza. I opted for a sandwich but didn’t know what to choose, so I had the girl choose for me pretty much (I was starved-anything would have been good). Well lets say, she’s got good taste. She suggested a muffuletta which is sundries tomatoes, eggplants, balsamic, EEOO, and peppers TO DIE FOR. I should have taken a pic, but I devoted it instantly.

2. After my dinner, the shopping commenced. I had a ton of coupons so I was on a mission. One of the most interesting things I for was coconut peanut butter. I needed pb, so I figured something new (and I had a couponnnn!). So coconut? Peanuts? Well it’s an interesting combo, pb meets Malibu in my opinion. I’ve only been having it on the spoon, but soon I’ll throw it on some bread. Stay tuned to a further review!

3. Granola has been my ish lately. I’ve been chomping on pumpkin flax granola, the school granola and coco granola. All of this snacking has made me want to make some of my own! Know any good recipes?

Well this is it for now. Maybe there will be two posts today since I have nothing to due on account of the hurricane.. Stay safe everyone!
