I’ve got a lot to be excited about today!
My sister will be living with us for a month while she finishes up her dietetics internship so she can become a registered dietitian!
(She was a bit tired after traveling 14+ hours. Plus it was cold coming from North Carolina!)
Last night I also ran a race–more like a fun run/training run.
I thought everyone was going to run 4 miles, but when I got there, I found out there were actually three options: 3K, 4 miles, or a 7.5K.
I chose the 7.5K (4.5 miles) route since I needed a 30-40 minute tempo run for the day. Instead of doing a tempo run on my own, I decided to use this race where others could push me to keep a good pace.
I ended up having a pretty decent race; I felt good, and I was averaging right around 7:00 minutes/mile. I actually was the first woman done for my race. (Side note: This was a very small race. There was maybe 50 people between all three races.)
I was happy with my performance, especially in the midst of a 70-mile week and the day after a hard track workout.
Tonight Craig and I are going to a cooking class! I bought a Groupon a while back to Let’s Cook Alaska and tonight’s the night we are going to learn about making “Starters and Salads.” It was a good option for the both of us because Craig loves appetizers, and I love salads.
And last but not least, the one thing I am especially excited about: only one more week of school left!! eek!! I can’t wait!!
