So glad this work week is half over. I’m stretched so thin this week between assignments/quizzes for grad school, catching up on work after being sick last week, getting ready for our housewarming party this weekend, and trying to train for my first marathon!
I’m actually very nervous because I’ve missed over a week of running! When I was sick, I had this horrible cough and when I took deep breaths, I would get coughing attacks. I figured running would be a poor choice. And this week, I’ve been working non-stop and still getting to bed by 12:30 AM. With a (late) start of a 6:30 AM alarm clock, this leaves little time for running. Just. Get. Through. The Week.
My experienced runner friends- should I be worried about missing this many runs???
Things have been going pretty well with my puppy dog visitor. She seems to not hate my guts for moving out of my parents house and leaving her behind.
She leaves today. Which is probably a good thing after this incident.
I’ve also been keeping busy with trying new recipes for our Oktoberfest/Halloween-themed housewarming party.
We ordered the Happy Boy Farms Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta, General Santos Ahi Tartare, and Pickled Vegetables to share as appetizers. So delicious!
Everyone loved their entrées. I ordered the Fresh Spaghettini with Organic Cherry Tomatoes, Roasted Delta Corn & Arugula Walnut Pesto. I typically don’t order pasta out (unless it is a signature dish or an Italian Restaurant). But this was speaking to me and it was amazing! But of course I forgot to take a pic.
Oh well, we got this better one instead!
And the night ended with me staying up till 12:30 AM studying again, followed by accidentally crawling into bed with my purse on. Don’t ask.
Experienced runner friends- give me advice on missing runs during marathon training 😉
What is the worst thing a pet has ruined in your house? Hmm I’m fairly certain my dog growing up ripped up the linoleum that used to be in our kitchen. That’s got to be a big one.
Ever made soft pretzels from scratch?!
