Just nailed my first accounting interview! Looking all profesh. I even got to talk about the Tough Mudder in the interview! Should be hearing about whether I made it to the second round or not next week
How do you spend your rest days? After the Tough Mudder Sunday Angad and I both agreed we need to properly recover for a few days. The bruises we have are unreal! We also decided that our training and running was so sporadic that this time around we are going to follow Hal Higdons half plan to keep up running for our next race! So far we are looking at a half in April at Rutgers and the Hawai’i Half in may when we visit.
Anyways, yesterday I had only one class and it was about 75* outside! So crazy for November its usually so cold! My cousin surprised me and came up to Rutgers so I took her for a walk on the trail that runs along side the river that I usually run on! It was so nice and she loved it! Later on in the day a friend texted me to run but given my current bruised state I convinced him to explore this nature preserve on campus with me! It was really pretty, basically just a few trails in the woods that have information about the plants and trees and animals. It was great to get out into the woods twice in one day!
So I ask you how do you spend your rest days?
Vegan Burger Round Up (all from Zsu’z Vegan Pantry)
Ready to take on the tough mudder with this babe. @akd93
Tough mudder is 2 days away!!! Spent the day yesterday volunteering so we can run for less. It was really cool to get a different perspective while setting up the course. The layout is totally different so that’s something I am excited about! It was realllly cold out yesterday so that’s something I’m not too excited about. I remember last year being so cold and numb at the end I had to go to the medical tent and get one of those foil blankets. So what I am getting at is that although I’m excited I am also really anxious! We have been training for so long but I feel underprepared in a way. Also I have a huge math exam where the average is a 40/100 the next morning. So it’s basically a long and exciting but stressful weekend ahead between studying tough mudder running and prepping and working! Happy Friday ya spaklie cupcakes! Enjoy the weekend !!
So this came today! So excited !
WE’RE BACK! Time for another yoga party because we are kicking off with our yoga challenge for October #posebypose.
Vegan Hearty Soup Round Up
In my short few years of not eating meat, I would say I get asked the top 3 questions at least once a day, and all the others scattered variously throughout time. There are much weirder ones than these, and I have never understood people’s obsession with people that don’t eat the same thing as…
Saturdays are for adventuring! (At least this one since I’m off from work) Angad was so silly and thought he worked the 11-7 shift today but really he’s doing the 7:00 night shift. So he came home and surprised me! we never both have off!!! It’s 82 degrees today which is like 30 more than it has been so we decided to spend the day adventuring! We drove about an hour to get to my favorite vegan restaurant at the beach. I was pleasantly surprised to find out on Saturdays they have a different brunch menu. Who doesn’t love brunch. That’s right no one. We split a green cold press kale juice and I had pumpkin sprouted French toast with tofu scramble. Omgggggg. It had candied pecans on it and cashew butter. Angad had one of my favorites on the menu which is a sunflower meet burger with onions and coconut “bacon” and it was served with marinated kale. It was lovely we took it to go and sat out sandy booties on the beach and enjoyed the sun. We had some time after lunch so we decided to visit the coolest people ever aka my grandparents who live pretty close! I wanted to cheer my grandma up because she just had surgery and is recovering from breast cancer so her spirits are not that high. I picked up the happiest flowers I could find and brought them over to her! Anything that brings another human happiness is a solid investment. Especially when that human is my saint of a grandmother! I would bring her all the sunflowers in the world to see her smile!!! I hope you fabulous people all had a wonderful Saturday!
16 days till Tough Mudder
Damn. Typing that our scares me. I feel so less prepared than last year. I hate how I let myself lose so much hard work and progress,granted my knee injury set me back an entire season.. It’s embarrassing how far I have come being. This time last year I was so healthy at school. A lot had to do with a recent break up with Chris the summer before junior year, using running and lifting as a way to stay happy. But at the same time I felt I was more dedicated to my fitness. I am getting to that point again but it’s so much harder here at Rutgers. I have so much school work and applying for internships I already feel like I am falling behind in school work and in my workout schedule. How do you guys manage while in college? Anyways, struggle rant over.. Today I squeezed in a five mile run right before work. I don’t have much to say about this run it was really ordinary except for my breathing. I stopped taking my asthma medicine about a year ago and am really starting to feel it with the change of seasons. Also the air quality at Rutgers sucks. I am going to try to follow up with my pulminologist as soon as I can. I have no idea how to spell that but. Sorry not sorry
