It’s been a very relaxing Saturday! I didn’t have any homework to do and the snow has kept me bound indoors.
I was up around 8, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to run today. I knew outside was pretty much out of the question with 11 inches of snow on the ground and poor clean up in Columbia, but I had to run 4.5 miles and really didn’t want to do it on the treadmill.
My mom convinced me to do my run on the treadmill, so I ate a quick breakfast of peanut butter toast and headed to the Rec right when it opened at 10 a.m.
The Rec was pretty busy for 10 a.m. on a Saturday, but luckily most of the patrons wanted to use the ellipticals, so I didn’t feel bad for using my treadmill for longer than the allotted 30 minutes. I watched Barefoot Contessa and Giada at Home, alternating between 10:00 min/miles, 9:05 min/miles and a little time at 8:20 min/miles when I was getting sick of running indoors and wanted it to be over.
I struggled through my run and headed back to my room to stretch. Treadmills make my legs HURT. Sore knees and tight hips. After a good stretch, I took a FREEZING COLD shower. There is no hot water in our building right now. It is terrible and needs to be fixed ASAP or I will lose it.
I picked up Allen after drying my hair and we headed out for bagels! I went back to my traditional order:
Baked sweet potato:
We also made smoothies! Mine is in the fridge because I was seriously not hungry.
I sure will drink this smoothie later! Tonight we are watching Mizzou play Kentucky. Things are good so far!
