In case none of y’all listen to country, the title is from the Zach Brown Band. But I believe that it’s totally true and it will be the jumping off point for my post today. So I went for a run today…. and it went well 🙂 This was me today before my big run. I’m all decked out in my new gear. I’m very excited, if you can’t tell.
Anywho, I ran a little less than a mile again in 6:30 exactly, which was kinda suprising when I stopped. I felt good, I mean I was a little winded, but that’s to be expected. I let my body pick the pace and didn’t push it, which is a new concept to me. When I get the all clear and officially start runnning again then I’m going to try to keep that in mind when I run more again. I’m going to let my body pick the pace more and not push myself to get fast times all the time. It was a great run. Before my knee, I think I forgot Why exactly I run and Why it used to be fun for me. After being injured for so long I realize that it’s the feelings that I get and how it makes me feel. I lost that, but I’ve found it again and I can’t wait to jump back in and keep that feeling.
As you can see it’s a mix of finisher medals, actual medals for winning places, pictures from meets and such, bib numbers, plaques from high school, and flags that I stole off of some flag lines (Yeah, I’m a badass). It’s just my wall to keep all my running things together, it’s a nice reminder of all the good times I’ve had through my running over the years. And I try to duplicate it in my room when I go to school.
So to keep the fun times rolling, I’ll show you a picture of my shoes and my bag of pile of clothes, which believe it or not is not all of my running clothes, I left some at school and I couldn’t fit them all the bag thehe.
As you can see it’s packed full of goodies. Yes, there is a towel in there, I also put my swimming stuff in the bag. I’m quite obsessed with running as I’ve said before… so here’s my books, which don’t include 2 because I forgot to put them on the pile. Also, I have a kindle so I have lots of running books on there, so this picture really doesn’t cover the full scope of my running book obsession.
I don’t know why it’s sideways….. but oh well.
After all this running and picture taking I decided to take one last picture of my yummy snack which was a FRUIT SALAD! I love fruit salad….
It looks mostly like apples but it’s really not. It consists of apples, bananas, kiwi, oranges, and peach. I love fruit, and I threatened my brother to make sure he wouldn’t eat it. His reponse? Sara, why would I eat your fruit salad? See I made the silly mistake of forgetting that when I come home I enter a land of people who don’t eat fruit and vegetables on a daily basis… No joke. So yeah, basically I can leave my fruit salad out for hours and not have to worry about anyone eating it. Yay for me! The good thing abou this is that I know whatver fresh food I buy won’t be eaten on me. 🙂
Well I have to go to work soon… not yay. So I gotta eat dinner, Suprising sidenote; when I’m home and shop for myself I eat more fish and seafood than meat, I’m not sure why. I think it just has to do with the amount of protein and the taste, because I do love seafood. Anywho, I think I’m gonna go make myself some fish and asparagus (Love the stuff) and then head off to work. Until later, TTFN.
