Last 2011 Hump Day!

I want to know how it's Wednesday already! I know I didn't work on Monday but still, this week is flying by!! Anyone else think so? Maybe it's b/c WSU is pretty much shut down and I'm still working. Yay for slavery Grad School!

Last night I was good and went to the gym. I was working on a project and hence didn't get out of work til 5:45 and the gym closes at 7 for Holiday hours. I managed to get 2.5 miles in. I warmed up with a mile @ 12:40 pace and then felt saucy and did some speed repeats. I did a 6.5mph or 9:13 pace for 90 sec and then cooled down until my heart rate was below 150. I did this 3 times and probly could have squeaked out #4 but I was tired and it was getting close to closing time. I enjoyed these speedy segments and felt like my form was better than at my regular slow pace.

I went home and was unsure what to make for dinner, so I scoured my pantry and fridge and came up with seafood salad, mac n cheese with green chilis and some yams. Yes, it was a very weird and all over the place dinner but it was quite tasty. I'm not sure why, but I love me some fake crab!

I sat down with my dinner and the BL Thanksgiving special came on. Of course, I got sucked into it for about 15mins and then put it on mute while I read Hunger Games. I missed my tv friends! I don't know if I'm going to make it until next week when the new season starts... I'm SOOO EXCITED!

Do you know of anywhere I can buy all of the BL seasons on dvd? I googled it with no luck and would like to relive some of the old seasons... even back when Caroline Rae was the host! Sheesh!

I'm excited to show you the project I was working on!

Today, I have also been looking into things to do/ see when I'm in San Diego for the last week of March for a Nerd Conference. I did a little searching and guess what's right outside my hotel?!

I also looked into the San Diego Zoo b/c I've always wanted to go, but it's $42!! Good Grief!! But I might have to go just b/c I'm there.

Does anyone have any San Diego Suggestions? I think I'm saying at the Holiday Inn on the Bay.

Before the week is over, I'll do a year since April recap and plans for 2012! :)

One thing I've already signed up for is Amanda's @ Run to the Finish 30 Day Food Journal Challenge, starting Jan. 1. You should sign up if you've never done anything like this before.



  1. Thanks! I will have to check out the food journal challenge.

    So what is all the hype about The Hunger Games. Looks like I know what I need to read. Have fun in San Diego. The weather has been awesome!

  2. I was excited to see your speed work is like mine! I always feel so slow when I run my 12:30 or 13 mile pace (since I'm a beginner) and so I like to mix in some speed work too to feel faster! :-) I like to do tenth of a mile sprints at 6.2 or 6.5 and then walk a tenth of a mile etc...I try to do this for at least a mile and then I feel really accomplished! I'm totally going to check out the food journal, thanks for the suggestion!!
