So Stinkin Busy!

Hey y’all! Happy Hump Day!! I can’t believe it’s just Wednesday… I have done so much this week. Unfortunately my weeks just keep getting busier and busier until after my BIG drug test at the beginning of September. It’s a comprehensive test over about 100+ drugs! And we have to pass this to start clinical on September 13! Talk about stressful! And on top of trying to study for that, we are taking a full load of classes (one of which is ridiculous with the amount of work we have to do…) So I will be one busy girl for another month or so! Phew, makes me tired and stressed just thinking about it.

Onto more fun topics… I received a free coupon for some Buitoni Riserva Pasta from the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program! We love pasta at our house so hubby and I were really looking forward to trying these!


We decided to try the Quattro Formaggi Agnolotti! These little pasta shells were stuffed with 4 different kind of cheeses and garlic! Fabulous I tell ya!!


I loved how big and full these were!


Topped with our favorite Marinara sauce! Yummy! These come highly recommended by me!!


Let’s move on to my favorite topic… RUNNING!! I’ve had some really great runs the past couple days!! On Monday, running group was cancelled due to an excessive heat warning. Believe me people, when it “feels like 123 degrees” no one should be out running! This heat is getting a bit ridiculous!! So I opted for a treadmill run and did my favorite Fartleck 5-4-3-2-1 for a total of 3 miles. It was good, not too hard, not too easy.

This morning I had a fabulous 4 miler!! My times are slowly getting closer to my normal pace. I’m still a little slower than I was back in the winter and early spring. I’m blaming it on the heat :) Here’s my stats:


Mile 1: 10:39

Mile 2: 10:14

Mile 3: 10:17

Mile 4: 9:53

Avg. Pace: 10:16

Not too shabby! Even though I headed out around 6:30am for this run, it was already hot and super humid! When I finished I was drenched! I don’t think there was a dry spot on my shirt! Gross, I know!!

Tomorrow I have a BRICK workout on the schedule since I have another TRI in less than 2 weeks! I can’t wait, I am totally loving TRI’s!! Well friends, that’s all for now. Gotta go get dinner started!
