Currently…

Hey friends!

I’m headed off to my aunts today for some R&R by the pool! Can’t wait!

I wanted to talk about some current things and remembered a fun post that Julie did not too long ago called “Currently”.

Current Book(s)

I’m usually a book person for like three months out of the year. I go through this phase where I just have to read, read, read!

I went to Barnes&Noble on Monday and browsed for books. There were a ton I want to go back to get but I had to get this book because Julie said it was so hilarious!

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Current Music

I don’t listen to a lot of music but I love the song Summertime On My Mind by Kelley James and Amazing by Inna. Those two songs just remind me of summer. I remember the songs from the workout videos from Tone It Up. I have also been loving the song Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley…you know the Rick Roll song?

Current Nail Color

French manicure ❤

Current Drink

I always drink water and coffee but Zevia is where it’s at! Love this stuff so much!

Current Food

I am obsessed with making homemade clean and healthy pizzas on Flat Out Wraps!!!

Current TV Show

Motive! I don’t usually like watching TV but this show is brand new and I love it. It’s pretty decent too, which is a plus. It’s about:

A feisty Vancouver homicide detective tracks down the most cunning of killers by trying to figure out the motive to the crime.

Sounds kind of plain but its really interesting to watch Kristin Lehman figure out why the killer did what they did. She’s hilarious

Womens Nike LunarGlide+ 5 Running Shoe

Speaking of Nike Lunar Glide 5’s….

Marathon training starts today!

I will try to blog everything I do in case any one wants to follow along. I’m not following a plan. I roughly know what to do and I also have my dad, who knows a good bit about what a first time marathoner should train like. I think it will be interesting!

What I’m hoping:

  • To run 5-6 times a week
  • Have 1 big long run at the end of the week
  • Incorporate 2-3 strength training workouts a week
  • My HIIT will be on the track.
  • Rainy days will be for indoor HIIT and strength training
  • Incorporate bleachers and stairs for strong legs
  • Incorporate functional exercises for strength
  • Start 5 minute plank workouts again from Lori and Michelle (and get my parents to join in on the fun!)
  • Eat a super clean diet. I have been going 95% this week and it’s really not that hard. I think that with a little more doing, it will be an easy habit to keep up.
  • Don’t eat too much after long runs. (This is just a big mistake!)
  • Run a 5k, 10k, and 1/2 marathon before the marathon! Not hard since they are all spaced out!

 

Shoes I would like try to during this training:

 

LET THE FUN BEGIN!

Questions:

  • What races do you have planned for the rest of the year?
  • Have you ran a marathon before?
  • What is your favorite running shoe?

Hey, I’m 18.

So…I have been a little MIA, unless you follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I think I’ve gotten on my laptop maybe three times this past week… :/

School work was pushing it. (I still took pictures though)

What’s been up?

  • Monday I was on a “fieldtrip” to go take my practice AP Lit. test which was 3 HOURS LONG of writing. Ew. Sad smile
  • We dissected cats on Tuesday…And it did not smell pretty.
  • I was given a 15 PAGE study guide for our humongous Anatomy Lab test next Tuesday AHHHH
  • I finished up a big math test Wednesday, which I studied hard for and made a 96…not too shabby.
  • I’ve been planning what I’m gonna do for my birthday
  • And I’ve been running everyday this week which always takes up about 2 hours of my life.

Foods from the week:

Head on over to Lori and Michelle’s blog for the recipe

**Birthday Celebration April 5

Got my presents! Macarons and new Lunar Glide 4’s which you’ll see those in a minute!!!

So prom was April 6, on my birthday…so we decided to do something Friday night, April 5. We had plans to go to Brio’s Tuscan Grille but the reservations were full from another school’s prom. I was really sad because I’ve been wanting to go there FOR FOREVERRR. So maybe we should have went out to eat April 4…..

So it took us about 30 more minutes to finally decide somewhere else to eat. We knew we had to go somewhere where there wasn’t prom people.

We chose Outback Steakhouse because I’ve never been. It was actually a really good choice. They had Mahi Mahi and OMG I had to get it.

Started off with some bread…wasn’t really that great though.DSC00678

Then we had an appetizer…the blooming onion. Australian thing apparently.

It was pretty good…but the whole time, I was like “will probably never ever eat this again”.

All I could think of was clogged arteries.

I chose fish and vegetables and rice for my entrée. It was called Heart Of Gold MahiDSC00683

Then we hopped on over to O’Henry’s Coffee…the best coffee place in the world. It’s top notch. Way better than Starbucks any day!

I got the Chai Latte and it was superb Smile

**Actual Birthday April 6

I am crazy and woke up at 5 AM to go run 11 miles with my dad with BTC. Who does that? Me.

Last year I skipped school and woke up early to run 6 miles of trails. Me and running are kinda bff’s.

Got a little fuel in me before we headed out

11.4 miles in 1:43 with a 9:04 average pace. My dad could have finished that with an 8 min pace or faster for sure, but he ran with me! Such a nice guy. I love you, Dad! ❤

Those are my new LUNAR GLIDE 4’s

And we stopped to get a cup of O’Henry’s coffee. They were brewing up some cool flavors. I got something called the Private Estate…it was regular. Just letting you coffee people know.

Post Run Smoothie! With beets!

Then I got ready for something I’ve never been to before…a car race. OMG.

My brother got us free tickets to the Barber Motorsports event and it was a perfect day for it! It was 70ish degrees, hardly any clouds in the sky, and a perfect breeze!

I’ve never been to one of these and I’ve always wanted to go to one. Here’s some pictures:

DSC00688DSC00713DSC00690DSC00693

We walked around a lot and watched these cars go in laps like a million times…which got boring in about 30 minutes…but that’s because I just don’t know much about it all…If I knew more, I’d probably have more fun. But it was awesome…

There were a few wrecks and spins which is interesting to see. I don’t think anyone got hurt though. Which was great!

CAR #10 won…but I really could care less. Lol.

Well, I’m 18 now! Yay!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a Clean Turkey Chili recipe and then Tuesday will be a quick leg workout that I’ve been wanting to share!

XOXO Audrey
