Bloggy Update

I'm still alive. I just have been crazy busy eating, drinking, and doing school work. It's amazing how much of my time marathon training took up. I have been playing catch up in school and mid terms are this week. Blah, blah, blah, still hate it, but I picked a demanding major so I can't complain. I also am done in December so I have senor-itis which means I don't give a shit anymore. Ok, I do give a shit, but my discipline has seriously declined. I have some goals brewing for 2010, but I have midterms this week so I don't have time to discuss until Thursday. Quick recap - Took my hubby to a hockey game for his b-day which isn't until next month, but he'll be gone:(. It was fun. If I grew up in an area where hockey was big, I would have loved it since I love all things aggressive. It would have been the perfect sport for me I swear. My hubby grew up on E coast and played his whole adolescence and a little in college. It was a good time.
Workout news: I gained five pounds. Sweet. It all came in the form of wine and ice cream bars so really - it was worth it. I went for a run on Saturday for the first time (30 min only) and it was pretty awesome. I also went for a 4 hour mtb ride yesterday. It was an easy ride, but my quads were feeling in towards the end. Good muddy fun!! Need to work on technical skills, but only fell a few times. Unclipped one foot alot though. Use it or loose it.

after I cleaned her off a little. Lots of big puddles :) Good times.

She took care of me even though I haven't been taking care of her.

Also swam this morning. YAY. I heart swimming. I haven't been in the pool in ages and the last time I swam was.... August? This will be my regular thing.

One more thing before I go. Remember that post I did about jogger vs. runner when somebody called me a jogger and I cringed, yet didn't say anything because I didn't want to sound like a douche-bag. Well I was taking to a girl the other day about massages and I called the person who administers massages a masseuse and she actually corrected me by saying, "it's massage therapist." It was funny, she sounded like a pretentious bitch.

5 lbs off of wine and ice cream is totally worth it. Hands down.

When I got my degree - I was actually able to WALK at May graduation even though I still had one more freaking summer class to take. Talk about not giving a sh*t! I can toatlly realate!

Hockey is the best sport ever. It is the best to watch - so fast moving. Fights. And hockey players seem to always be so hot!

Ps - I had to type in the word verification in like three times. whoops.

Wine and Ice Cream = totally worth it! You make me laugh!

Sounds like you had an AWESOME MTB ride - I really want to get in to MTBing and trail running this winter.

Good luck with your last few months of school - Dec will be here before you know it and you will be a grad!! YAY!

"It was funny, she sounded like a pretentious bitch." Ha! I always ask myself that before I say something. "Will this make me sound like a pretentious bitch?"

Glad to see you back!!! I was at Lowe's the other day and some guy asked what was wrong with my foot, I said stress fracture. He said, from jogging? I said, no RUNNING. My husband thought it was very funny I got so defensive.

KAT said...

I love hockey too! Are you guys Caps fans, by any chance? They're so damn sexy..
And mountain biking for 4 hours? Thats so fierce- I would probably fall down the mountain..

Hey, good to see you back. I always gain some weight (don't know how much, I rarely weigh myself) after marathons - I think it is the taper, plus decrease in workout time for the weeks post race. I go back to my usual self in a month or so. No worries. I am also excited about LOTS of biking and swimming! Have FUN!

Meg Runs said...

Great way to gain weight, my favorite treats! Good girl! Ha on the masseuse thing...spare me!! Missed you, hope your mid-terms go well!

Amanda said...

Gotta love wine weight, I definitely carry around a few alcohol lbs. Good luck with midterms this week!

jeff said...

are those the seattle thunderbirds?!? my wife used to get promo tickets and suite tickets all the time from her work. what a great way to spend the evening.

woodsy said...

What kind of mtn bike do you have? It looks similar to mine.

Missy said...

Yes, because a masseuse is the one that gives the happy ending, a massage therapist just rubs it out. Baaahahahaah, sorry, couldn't resist.

I love some hockey.

joyRuN said...

Mmmmm... wine & ice cream weight is the BEST. Completely worth it!

I'm loving swimming too, even if my hair's about to freeze off as soon as I step outside.

Tara said...

Soooooo jealous of your mountain bike ride girl! I was just thinking yesterday how much I
would love to be on my bike.

Love the pic of you throwing back a brew!!

Tara said...

hockey is a great sport, I've gained about 5 lbs too :-/, and I'm convince they'd prefer to be called massage therapists rather than a masseuse is becasue masseuse has a dirty connotations ;) lol

good luck with all your midterms!

Amy said...

LOL about the massuse. :) I've gained at least 5lbs too. ugh. Loved the pics and love that you have a truck where you can hook up your bike. I love those!!!!

Molly said...

The hockey game looked like a great time, I love hockey too. We signed my five year old up for it this year, need an new indoor activity since it's probably going to snow next week. : )

Teamarcia said...

I think it's post marathon weight gain--I can feel myself blowing up already. How cool you love swimming--sure wish I did. Good luck on those midterms!

Alisa said...

Holy moly 4 hours on a MTB! Whoa!

Sad your hubby is going to be gone again but does that mean you're going to come to Ptown?!?!

Good luck with the midterms I don't envy those.

LOL to the massage therapist comment.
