Busy Busy

I have as usual been so busy lately.  I keep meaning to blog but keep forgetting because I am just all over the place.  I had a couple days off from work and I was in paradise.  But I have been running an extreme amount, or at least for me ha.

I have been trying to run 4 miles every day or more.  Well 2 days ago I decided to go running after work.  I hadn't really eaten all day and after work grabbed a salad and ate, then waited like 3 hours then headed out.  Well the salad didn't sit well and I threw up about a mile and a half into the run.  I thought nothing of it so kept running.  Literally .2 miles later I threw up again.  I was like okay this is not normal so I guess I will just walk home and call it quits.  I got home and passed out, well not like black out, but like was so sick and so tired I just went to bed and passed out.

The next day I was a little nervous about running, but I was supposed to meet with a friend to go running that night.  I decided to run a short run just to see how I was feeling and if I would be good to go later on that night.  I did a 2 mile run and felt fine, so decided to just keep running later.  My friend and I went to Cherokee Park which is a huge park that I was afraid we would get lost.  We wanted to do 2 miles, so since I had my handy Nike watch, I said we could just run 1 mile then turn around and go back.  Well he ended up realizing the loop and it was exactly 2 miles!  So convenient.

After a hard run where we sprinted the hills we got some yummy Qudoba, more mexican food yum, and then went to of course Fro-Yo.  A new place opened right by my house called Choices and it was soooo good.  I wasn't that hungry but of course I made room for some frozen yogurt.

I really need to start remembering to take pictures,  This is basically what I ate, minus the chicken and of course some hot sauce!

So pumped for 4th of July though, my fav holiday.  I just have to get through 5 straight days of working, but it's worth it for some good food and crazy cool fireworks!
