Yesterday was the Clarendon 5K & 10 K race. It was a lot of fun! 😆 We were a group of 7 people, 4 of us did 10 K and 3 others did 5K for the first time, including Star. I had the target to break 50 min to improve from my last 10K. It did not happen and I had hard time to even finish it! 👿 What happened? A combination of poor training, over confidence after the 1/2 M and the VERY HOT weather. I’m bad running under the sun and the 10K started at 9AM when the sun was furiously hot! The course wasn’t pretty either, 80% was on the highway. Every mile was hard… specially the last two. I almost wanted to stop and walk but I kept telling me: “you’re strong! It’s time to prove it AGAIN!” So I kept going but I was suffering. 😦 Star and two other friends did the 5K for the first time. Star finished in 31 min, followed by other two by 31’30” and 38 min. They did it slowly indeed, but I was really happy for them to join the “club”. We had a lot of fun chatting, cheering each other. 😀 Although this time I didn’t enjoy the run so much and I didn’t reach my target, it was okay. Not every run needs to be fun nor easy. It’s part of the journey. It just makes things more exciting and challenging 🙂
I got some fun packages last friday.
Iphone 4 😆
a sample package of all-bran
Skin MD Natural for review
and books: some leisure reading and some to help dissertation writting
and some random eats that I’ve been enjoying last week.
half warm salad made with stir-fry for greens, chopped tomatoes and plain tofu (yes, you read it right, plain tofu! 😯 I must show you the packaging of this tofu… because I love its flavor!!! )
roasted squash filled with greek yogurt, figs and coconut butter
Saturday night to fuel for the race I had sweet potato gnocchi mixed with some spaghetti squash, tomato sauce and parmesan
Star had noodles with bok choy and eggs. Simple but filling 🙂
Star is catching a flight to China. He’ll be there for a week 😦 so I’m by my own today. I need to work on my presentation next week. Not fun 😦 But after that… I’m going to NYC for a concert and to play with my dearest friend. 😆
Q: How do you keep your finance? I’m a mess with $$. I don’t keep any record of how much I spend. I need tips!!!
