Ok blog peoples, I’m terribly sorry for the serious MIA the past few days. But as I explained in the most recent blog post my computer has sadly pretty much died. I’m waiting until Sunday/Monday to get it fixed *fingers crossed* so a continued hijacking of the family computer is happening.
Ok so now I’ll start with a quick blog recap of the past week and then I’ll move onto the present! Let’s start with last Thursday; trail run with ARE STRS. The trail was super rocky and dangerous, one guy fell and we had to call an ambulance because he hit his head and needed stitches. Luckily, he’s ok. I saw him at this past trail run (not running), but walking and there for the cookout. The stitches looked gross and horrible,but I guess he said was pretty good. So yay! Hopefully he’ll be 100% soon.
Next, last Saturday my mom and I went to the Troy Farmer’s Market. It encompasses a full street and then some, I think I’ve given my mom the Farmer’s market bug because she went cray cray spending money on a butt load of fresh food that we ended up making into a meal that night. So yeah basically our whole meal was made from fresh, local food =win!
And I guess my family computer doesn’t like me enough to put my pictures where I ask so I guess they will all be at the bottom of the post…. Moving along. I took a picture of our super awesome bounty of food. Which included; mussels, chicken, vegetables, bread, cider, pesto, cheese, applesauce, and I think that’s it…. It was interesting because I’ve never bought meat at the farmer’s market because its really expensive. But I managed to get a decent amount for like $8. It’s definitely a once and awhile buy though.
Oh, I got lovely pink eye…. in both my eyes. Yay me! I’ve been on medication for the past week. It’s all cleared up now, but it meant that I couldn’t put my head under the water at swim lessons, so I didn’t get any good swim workouts this week.
Tuesday; Colonie Relays which was fun my friends Eric and Abby ran the mile with me again. I didn’t run it as fast as last week: 7:46, probably because I was barefoot and the track totally tore up my feet a bit. Lesson learned. One thing that I thought was cool was that I got my first blood blister, weird thing to get excited about I know, but then again I’m odd.
Wednesday, I bought some black heels for work, they look super tall to everyone because I don’t ever wear heels, but I’m starting to. And well, I fell down the stairs. I didn’t get hurt, but my dad proceeded to make fun of me for the rest of the day and to tell me that I had to take back my shoes. It wasn’t my finest moment to say the least.
Thursday’s ARE STRS run was very uneventful compared to last week. I ended up doing around like 5 miles. And it was cook out night, which was good because I wasn’t sure what I was going to eat for dinner. There was music, and Josh- the guy who basically started it and is kinda amazing in my opinion. If you can’t tell, I have a slight crush on the guy, it’s mostly because he runs… and he works for (started?) a race timing company, has an awesome body, amazing calves- Runner’s calves! Anywho, Call Me Maybe came on and Abby and I jokingly were singing it to each other and he started singing into the mike his number… if only I had a pen! Hahaha anyways, it was a good mileage night and a lot of fun!
That brings me back to today, Saturday. I went to the farmer’s market again, mostly because my dad was begging me to buy him more pickles- he loves them! So I took the money my mom left me for food this weekend and spent it there plus a bit of my own money. I didn’t spend much, but I try to spread out my purchases among a bunch of different stands so I can support as many people as possible. Don’t worry I took pictures of this spread too! Now all that’s left of today is to get my stuff ready for my triathlon tomorrow and to go through all my rituals. Come on, we all have our prerace rituals we have to do. I am no exception. I also have to get some work done and then relax. I’m hoping to take like 5 minutes off my time from last year. Plus, my friend Christine let me borrow her old road bike so I don’t have to use my mountain bike, I call that a win! Don’t worry, if I have time tomorrow or sometime in the days after y’all will get a full update! So that’s it for now, I shall end the post with a super photo bombing!
So until later, TTFN.
