Wow! Who knew storming walls could be so much fun? Here’s a little recap for you all…

Mode of transportation; prerace. I don’t have photos of our beginning, because we checked in at different places! But our swimmer done fairly well I think, and our sprinter was fast.

(I’m the one in green black and brown)

I had to do 9 laps of that little greenway thing, it was about 3k. After my 9laps, our long distance runner took to the stage, and met us at the wall!

Can you spot us? I’m at the top, pulling up our team mate.

Getting our last person over the wall! Woo! So much fun.

We came third all in all, so it was pretty fun. We’ll see if our time is fast enough to get us into the semi finals. 😀

Afterwards I was crazy I did a 14k run with my friend. 😛 I’m pooped, I’m probably gonna go to bed soon (and STUDY HARDCORE tomorrow for a quiz I have…)

Coconut Oatmeal

I just can’t get enough!

Or rather, I have some coconut milk to get rid of or it’ll just go bad…

So this morning he was the star of my oatmeal:

Almond butter is a little resentful…

He needs to get over it!

Into the Pot:
-1/4c coconut milk
-1/3c water
-1/4c oatmeal mixture
-1/2-1med frozen banana
– heaping TBSP raisins

Heat, stir, put into the bowl with a tbsp almond butter…

Exercise

I have been so lazy lately. Well, just compared to normal. I’ve been taking a few extra rest days. I used to feel so guilty if I took extra days off. I’m trying to feel fine with being a little bit lazy; being a student can really suck the energy out of you, and sometimes somethings gotta give.

But I do have an exciting new sports event just around the corner…

STORM THE WALL

This is the biggest intramural sport in North America. Basically it’s a super mini triathlon done relay style with every team member getting over the wall at the end. I missed out on this last year, so it’ll be my first time. I’m super excited!

The events are:
– 200m swim
– sprint run
-“long run” (like 1km)
-bike ride (like 5km)

I’ll either be biking or swimming, since I can do those decently and most people struggle with those events. Have I mentioned I’m EXCITED? So that’s this weekend, so I won’t be doing my scheduled long run, I’ll have to figure something out! Maybe do a shorter run at race pace…

Alright I’ve got some resumes to print out and distribute today, so I’m signing off.

What sort of interesting oatmeal combos have you all been trying lately?
