There is also a possibility that my happiness is based on the fact that I was lucky enough to have met three special people in my first three weeks at Syracuse University and have realized how rare and amazing it is to have quality friends such as these upon chance. I fully intend to stay in touch with each one of them forever and always. For now though, I am thoroughly enjoying nostalgically looking back at freshman year photos of us and laughing/"aw"ing :).
Anywho! Let's discuss yesterday, shall we? Following an afternoon of good news, I went running. I ran hard, not particular fast, but hard, and it felt good. I've finally reached a level of strength and endurance that has allowed me to thoroughly CTFO while I'm running. By the way, I have not yet mentioned how I run yet... To ease myself back into it, I used the Galloway method: beginning with 1 minute walking and 1 minute running for 30 minutes and building myself to 30 minutes of straight running. It works for me. I don't know how far I've gone, I don't know how fast I've run and I have no desire for such logistics. A half an hour allows me to simply enjoy it and all of it's benefits (mentally and physically). Yoga and running, a match made in heaven. Who knew?
Also, since I've become such an advanced runner ;) I've noticed an increase in my appetite. I ran home yesterday to a semi-formal dinner in honor of the senior class of Alpha Chi Omega (another group of girls that I'm lucky to know). I showered first, of course, and then ran down to the meal that became my feast. We started with a small salad. It was gone in seconds.
Then, for the main course we had three options: steak, chicken, or lobster. I obviously had the latter, (it was delectable,) alongside fresh green beans and a sweet potato. I don't think words can explain how ridiculously fast I inhaled this. I think it tasted yummy.
And finally, we were greeted with the wonderful choices of blueberry, pecan, raspberry walnut, or peanut butter chocolate cheesecake. Which one would you prefer? I, again, had the last one, Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake... otherwise known as absolute heaven. I heard the others were pretty delectable too. I don't have dessert often, so when I do, it better be worth it :).
Moving on through present and future, let's take a look at the weekend...
- Friday: MAYFEST & the Senior Fashion Show
- Saturday: the Mountain Goat Run & a 22nd birthday dinner to drinks celebration
- Sunday: schoolwork-ing/studying (yay!) & AXO events
I'll try to stop in at some point. Either way, have a fabulous Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!
