Since I apparently don't loooove writing about what I do, I've come up with the idea to share it with you by posting pictures of it instead and maybe once a week write about the things that I've done.
So.. Last week. I went to school as usual and then practice after it. I started running again last week (!!!) after about 3 weeks of being out. It still hurts a little bit when I run and I can still not do sprints since it puts too much pressure on my thigh, but I'm happy to be back. At the moment, I do mostly long runs, all from 3 to 5 miles (5-8km) to get back at it. I have to run slowly though, but hey, I'm running!!
Friday was, as per usual, game day. We played against a school from Tennessee who had traveled 5 hours to be able to play against us. The game wasn't the best to watch though, since we were superior from the start. I stopped watching it after the first quarter and started talking more with my friends instead. The other exchange students from Gadsten came to watch our game instead since their team isn't the best, and just to hang out, so it was a lot of fun. For some reason, it's easier to talk to them than Americans, probably because we're going through the same thing and because we're more similar since the most of us come from Europe.
Saturday started like always, with a race. Our team wasn't supposed to compete, but one of our coaches took four of us to Arab City Park, about one hour from Southside. This, because we had either been injured or away too much and missed too many races. We have to have 3 races done before regionals to be able to run it it, so we just put an extra one in there. It went fine, my time was nowhere near the first race I ran, but it was still okay.
I came home to the package I told you about earlier and therefore ate some candy and hung out with Kaylee for the rest of the afternoon. We ate what was left from one of the Marabou's my mom sent me and she is, like me, obsessed with it. We ended the day with going to Mid-South around 6. Our school band were competing and we had nothing else to do, so we went to Gadsten and watched them. They did great and it was nice to get out of the house and do something, even though I was dead tired after the football game and the race.
Sunday I ran, again. What a surprise!! This time alone around the neighborhood. It's was so hot outside even though it's fall here know (still don't understand how they can call this fall). It's starting to cool down though, but it's nowhere near the fall weather I'm used to.
The day continued with a memorial for one of my host family's relative and ended with a trip to the gym.
Thought that this would be a short post, but I write whenever I get bored so it became a long one haha. Have a great week y'all and take care!
