three things thursday

1. Training and Tempo Runs - I started training for the NYC Half-Marathon this past Monday and so far so good. I'm really trying to incorporate strength and cross training into this training cycle and it's been much easier being here in Florida with nothing to do so we'll see how that goes once the semester kicks into gear again. I did a 5 mile tempo run today on the treadmill and it was awesome. I just had a great run and I'm pretty excited about it. I think The Pilot are going to go celebrate at Sonic in a bit. I saw a sign for a Red Velvet Cheesecake Blast and I think I have to have it. (Side note: I never eat fast food...unless it's Sonic...which they don't have in New York...so it's ok).

2. First Race of 2011 - I'm running my first ever 5k this weekend! Woohoo! I joined up with Lesley's Run for the Bling of It Challenge so I needed a race for the month of January and decided a local 5k here in Florida would be perfect! It may slightly defeat the purpose because I don't think many 5ks give out race bling but maybe I'll get lucky!

3. Dinner Recipes - I need everyone's help for dinner recipes! Starting in about 2 weeks my work day will end at 5 or 5:30 (depending on where I'm working that day) and class starts at 6:30 so I have an hour or an hour and a half given the day to get to class AND eat dinner. I spent a lot of money on quickie dinners which weren't exactly healthy or high in protein this past semester and I'm looking for some dinner recipes that I can carry to work with me and that either don't need to be heated up or that I can heat up before I leave work. So, share some websites, recipes, ideas, WHATEVER! It will be MUCH appreciated!

Happy Thursday!


  1. Great run! So funny I was just debating about signing up for the being challenge too! Still not sure...

  2. Finally I've found an interesting blog. Interesting because...1) I love achieving goals too. I'm working on 101 goals to do in 1001 days. 2) You are in graduate school and only 23. That is very admirable. I'm 25 and barely getting my Associate's this Fall. 3) I LOVE that you are from NYC. I love everything about the city. I've never been there but I plan on going someday. I also have a blog you might be interested in. It's all about NYC and Sex and the City. Check it out, www.citysex10.blogspot.com. Hopefully you like it. I look forward to reading your blog!

  3. ...are you doing the NYC half on March 20th? I'll be there....

  4. My mom makes this Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese. It's not particularly healthy but it's easy, cheap, and reheats well.

  5. What exactly is Three Things Thursday about?
