Today my dad and lil sis left today 😦 We went grocery shopping and I bought some things I don’t normally buy such as buttermilk pancake mix and avocados (not to be used together.) I then went to Pacific Home and Garden and bought some plants: got some marigolds and some daisies, a tomato plant, some basil, and some strawberries for decorative purposes. I wish I had a flower box at my window so that I had an easier time growing plants that need full sun.
I also went on a good run today… I rolled my ankle pretty badly a couple days ago so I took a little bit to warm up but I did 6 400m repeats with 2 minutes rest. It was great. I think tomorrow I’ll go on a bike ride to Avila to lay off the ankle a bit.
I feel very strong right now. My dad said he was impressed by my strength after we went on a bike ride together on Easter. That meant a lot coming from him… If I just took a swimming class over the summer I think I’d be a great triathlete. What’s better cross-training for running? Pilates or swimming? I think pilates is more complementary to running, but swimming is great cardio. Hm…
I’m going to Santa Barbara tomorrow to visit my best friend Lauren. I’m very excittted! I love visiting her, although I can’t do it as much as I’d like. This will be my spring break: I’m going to run on the beach and lay in the sun. I also might partake in some leisurely reading, might buy a Vanity Fair, it’ll be crazy. Pictures to come, xoxo
