Haha this is the only thing I’ve had time to blog about this week. Don’t worry, this afternoon I will be back, I promise my loVES! Also, add this song to your playyyliisttts!
Ok I have been reading up on Gluten Free Diets and dieting in the running world in general….as well as CEP compression socks. At some point this week, I will be able to blog again, but its just that insane. I even forgot I had parent/teacher conferences on Thursday night!!! (although no parent or teacher conferences with me).
I had two ridiculously long days on Monday and Tuesday… and haven’t been able to exercise. Two days off have already left me super anxious. I don’t like that feeling.
The next post will talk about taking time off in training and dieting, as that has been causing me a little bit o’ stress lately!
it’s 4:00 a.m. in the morning and I randomly woke up to check my email and I feel sick about the kindness I received from an anonymous donor who pushed me to my donation goal. i literally started crying and can’t imagine that anyone would care this much about me, but would care this much about my cause. But thank you to the ANONYMOUS donor that has either followed me through facebook, responded to one of my million emails, or my blog for making this happen. I feel sick. This is amazing. Someone out there is amazing. Could have been a friend, a family member, a facebook friend, a community member, a teacher from my high school, a friend’s boss, a coworker, a community store owner, a national store owner, or a blog follower. DOESN”T MATTER. THIS PERSON ROCKS!
LET’S NOT STOP THERE! This person left a comment saying that they hoped I far exceed my goals. SO LET’S DO THAT! Keep donating! Its not for me, its for a cure!
In the end, I have to thank ALL of the people who donated, because I wouldn’t have ever made it to my minimum goal without the support of everyone who gave so thoughtfully. THANK YOU!
Anyone want to buy this shirt for me, for my fundraiser?!? I saw these in person while I was at the Boston Marathon Expo. You can buy it here. Size XS because their v-necks run a size large? Any takers??? Well if you want it for yourself, you can purchase it at Raw Threads. Its sustainable apparel and athletic gear made up of bamboo and organic cotton. I own a pair of running capris and they are really comfortable and wick away moisture like woah.
Dear cats and kittens,
You’re about to embark on a post not related to training whatsoever, other than the fact that I mentioned that I ran. Don’t worry, I have every intention of telling you about my CEP compression socks that I bought and a training plan I was looking into last night.
So…here is the training part. I ran 30 miles this past week. Thanks to all of you who commented or talked to me in person about my poofy foofy run on saturday, because I should in all actuality be proud of myself for having run 30 entire miles in one week! This saturday we drop down in mileage again and will only run 12. Isn’t that funny to hear/say? I only have to run 12 this weekend. Pffft.
After my 16 miler, I made the worst decision possible and drove directly to my parent’s house in upstate NY. This was a terrible decision because I just ran in the rain, for 2 and a half hours, and did not stretch properly OR shower before sitting in a sitting position for 3 hours on the road. Owwwww. My butt hurt so much the next day! Regardless, it was a quick but happy trip home. Me loves me family! I wish I had had a little more time, but I already gave go mom go the heads up that training is taking precedence this year. She understands, mostly because the living room is being done and there was ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE to sit except for in the kitchen or laying in my parents bed. Just imagine 3 adult children and 2 adult parents laying in a communal bed together. I mean…it happens, whatever. How else were we going to watch a movie that I couldn’t stay awake for?
Before we had a party in the USA, my mom made a spinach lasagna and treated us to NY wine from a winery in her hometown! Here is an aeriel view of the meal. My mom suggests using precooked lasagna for nights when you want to throw together a semi-quick meal although it does take about an hour to cook.
Listen kids. I’m not Jewish, although I can be for the right man, wink wink. Hahahha. Just kidding! But seriously, I have a lot of friends who are, and like to keep kosher for passover. Some bend the rules throughout the rest of the year, but being Kosher for Passover and making sure no rising bread enters their mouths is a big priority this time of year! So, because I hung out with Jewish Baby Snake and her Jewish beau, we partook in some kosher recipes and treats!
This recipe is entitled: “We can’t cook, but we have to keep Kosher for Passover Pizza”
First step is to cover a cookie tin with aluminum foil and break up the matzo into pieces
The song got me through my half marathon. Add it to your playlists!
