And on the 7th day, God did an easy 3

Only my 3 was 13.. but who's counting? And it was actually a really easy week, since this was cut-back week. Next weeks LR will be back up to 18 miles. I really need to make a conscious effort this week to keep mileage down though, so I'll have to plan accordingly. Last week was 67, and I try to keep it at or around 55. Anything more than that, and I'm in my danger zone when it comes to injuries. I had a stress fracture back in November and had to take the whole month off - it drove me effing crazy! No need for that again. But to be honest with myself.. that funny feeling is starting to set back in right around my fibula by my ankle (where I had my sfx last time).. so as a precaution: (warning runners - avert your eyes)

Ugh that's never a sight you wanna see. ANYWAYS - its been a fun/busy weekend! We made the weekly costco trip and came back with the usuals: lots of fresh produce, and a bulk pack of Kashi Roll bars! My mom got salmon steaks and some other things too. I'm not sure if the produce sold at costco is genetically modified.. but it sure looks good, and you can't beat the price! Hahha Emma - this picture is just for you!
In the back is a big container of super big juicy plums (like 15 of them!), then a bag of 6 mixed color peppers, and a HUGE container of cherry (actually.. "splendido") tomatoes. Hahah I go through that tomato container in like 2 days though! So with this cornucopia of goodies, and the amazing weather we had yesterday - time to bust out the grill!!
We actually shovel a path out to the grill in the winter.. but today was a good grill day. Anyway, here's me (hot off a GORGEOUS 7 mile tempo with my dad biking along - 60 degrees!), scrubbing off anything that was burnt on last time =/ I only did the peppers because I was attempting to simultaneously write a paper.. so I didn't have tons time to spend prepping stuff. The picture makes the peppers look super greasy, but oh my goodness they were so good I don't care! At first I just ate the yellow pepper.. and then I realized - Who the heck am I saving the other one for!? Perfect accompaniment to a very good dinner!

The last thing to post (before this becomes a freaking novel!) is that yesterday I sent in my housing and tuition deposits, and did the little roommate matching and housing preferences for Northeastern. IT IS SOO OFFICIAL! Honestly.. I just can't stop thinking about it! There's a welcome weekend on the 12th but I wont be able to go since I flew out there in January=<

Well so long for now! I have to meet with my group for an arch project. Which means driving ALLL the way over to campus. In the rain. Yuck. I'm all about field trips.. but not in the rain.
