Someone’s Excited

Things my boyfriend said to me last night:

Him: “Can we get late night pizza Sat?”
Me: “haha sure”

Him: “Can we pretend we just met at the bar and have a drunken one night stand?”
Me: “hahaha sure”

Him: “Epiiiiiic. I’m gonna defriend you tonight so I can send you and awkward friend request Sunday.”
Me: “Lame”

Haha, someone is a little excited to pretend like he’s in college on Saturday.  I think my sister is a little happy about it also.

I’m pretty excited myself, I just hope I can remember that I can’t party like a 21 year-old anymore without feeling extremely sick the next day.  Hopefully I can control myself.  Oh, and go Dukes!

Last night I hit the treadmill for a speed workout, 3 x 1 mile repeats at 8:20 pace.  8:20 pace is definitely a tad faster than is comfortable for me, so it felt good to push myself for those three miles.  Here’s how it looked.

  • 1 mile warm-up 10 min/mile
  • 1 mile 8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 1 mile @8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 1 mile @8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 4.75 miles total

I ran into my friend Chris as I was leaving the gym, and invited him over to watch the Phillies game later.  Chris is actually my oldest friend in the area. We met in the 4th grade, although we didn’t really become friends until I lost the  glasses and braces in 8th grade and was cool enough to talk to :).  He was my first serious boyfriend in high school, and we dated for about a year and a half.

This is us in June 2000, probably about two months after we started dating, I’m 14 and he’s 15.

Then this is us last summer celebrating Chris’s 25th birthday.  So even at 24 and 25, I think we look exactly the same as we did at 14 and 15, haha.  It was fun to have someone to watch the Phillies with, and I wore my Brad Lidge shirt which I’m pretty sure helped them win ;).  Also, Chris wants to run the Philadelphia Marathon next month, but forgot to sign up and now it’s sold out.  He’s been raising money for Alzheimer’s awareness for the race, so if anyone knows of someone looking to unload a bib, please let me know!

It’s Friday, hooray! I don’t plan on doing anything at all tonight except sitting on my butt resting for tomorrow mornings 10 mile run and day of drinking at Villanova.  I can’t believe yesterday marked the 1 month count down until the half marathon, it’s going to be here before I know it!  Anyone else up to anything good this weekend?! Happy Friday!


Yesterday was relatively uneventful for a Monday, a few co-workers and I headed out for Michelle’s birthday lunch, and then we had cupcakes.  Well, they had cupcakes, I was stuffed from my lunch of chicken fingers and fries and watched them eat cupcakes.  I recently changed my hours from 7:30-4:00 to 7:00-3:30 and getting out that extra 30 minutes earlier is really awesome.  I had a whole hour to relax when I got home before I had to head out to physical therapy.

PT was alright, for some reason my knee and hip were both unusually sore yesterday which makes me sad.  This is week 3, and I was hoping to notice some improvement, and I’m not, at all.  I do have a bruise on the side of my leg where they massage though, so don’t know if it’s from that or some drunken injury from Saturday, haha.  I didn’t ask about the 1/2 marry last night, I want to wait until Thursday to ask my other trainer (I trust him more) and see what he says.

Dinner was my leftover chicken and fries from lunch, and lots and lots of water.  I only peed twice yesterday, once when I got up in the morning and once when I got home from work, so I thought my body would appreciate some hydration.

Over the weekend there was a riot at the college I graduated from.  Every spring traditionally there is a huge block party, and alumni return for an unofficial “alumni weekend”.  Apparently this year it became out of control the cops had to be called in, the crowd was tear gassed, people were arrested, and there was tons of destruction.  The kids were throwing beer bottles at the police, who were dressed in riot gear, it was a disaster.  This really makes me sad because when I was in school there, it was always just a great weekend to hang out and party outside enjoying one of the last weekends of school.  Here is how I remember it.

And here’s what happened on Saturday.

That’s all I’ve got for today, I hope everyone enjoys their Tuesday!
