Quick catch up!

Hello all! So I keep doing this… I promise to write more (remember when I used to post daily?) and then I totally break my promise! I have just had so many things on my mind and whenever I get the free time to write, I end up going to the barn or just being too exhausted to do anything that requires brain power haha.

A few physical activity updates:
-I completed my first week of training for the Raleigh City of Oaks Half Marathon! 11 Weeks to go! I am using Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 half marathon training plan and I love it so far. I enjoy having a cross training day and specific distances for the runs instead of a time run. My pace varies so much that if I was told to go run 45 minutes, I might get the workout that was intended, or I could be going slow and not go the proper distance to have an impact on my training. So I love this plan.

-I am doing a mini triathlon with Casey and Bryan this Sunday. It is a 200m swim, 5 mile bike and 1.5 mile run. It’s just a baby one but it will still be a really good challenge! I have been practicing my swimming and I have to say, I really do enjoy swimming even though I am AWFUL! Casey and I have been trash talking each other non stop lately. She wants to beat me so badly! I am really excited for it. This little challenge should be a blast. I am probably going to catch the triathlon bug.
-I think I am going to tryout for club volleyball at UNC. I have been missing volleyball like crazy and I think it would be a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Tryouts begin a week from Wednesday!

I have been working at the Bulls a decent amount the past few weeks. It is sad that some of the people have left to go back to school, but there are still a few that will be there till the end of the season since they go to school in the area.

I took care of the horses for a few days while Renee, Marty and William were at the beach. I also got to pug sit Frisco! She was so adorable! 14

Let’s see… What else is there to share… I went to Fall Fest last night and got information on club volleyball and FLO Foods. I saw a few people I knew so that was nice to talk to familiar faces and not be a loner! I wanted information on the club equestrian team, but their booth was already packed up. Today I drove over to Chapel Hill and found my parking area. I park off campus and use the Park and Ride system. The bus wasn’t awful. I got to where I needed to be. I bought my books and went to find where my first two classes are located. I have four classes tomorrow: organic chemistry, beginning jogging, intro to rock music and calculus. It is going to be a long day of class followed by a night of work at the Bulls!

A few of my eats from the last few days:1
