Well friends….I did something that I said I was never going to do…I ran further than a ½ marathon!...well not by much – but it still totally counts! I decided to start 2014 off with a bang, and ran 14 miles on the treadmill – and thanks entirely to Netflix – all in all it was actually really good!
Not only was it my furthest run…but I also hit my goal of wanting to run a ½ this year in under 2:30! Now to be able to do this at an actual race…outside…without Netflix to distract me the whole time…
Now onto one of my favourite posts that Cori puts together a few times a year.
#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? Neither…ok I know I can’t pick that answer so….if we are having a snow storm then most likely that means it’s freezing out, and let’s be honest – I’m a winter cry baby and do everything I can to avoid the cold or having to spend time in it…so I’ll pick the thunderstorm in hope’s that means that it is nice and warm out
#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth? Um both…which I tend to do regularly…but again I’ll play nice and go with nose. I hate having my nose plugged vs having my mouth shut – so I’ll go with the lesser of two evils
#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
‘nouf said…moving on
#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree? Unless you are tempting me with a Red Velvet cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing…I’ll take extra of my favorite dish…pasta for all those wondering
#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour? I’m happy to have a date with Netflix anytime over running in circles…plus right now my treadmill is right beside a very large window that I always have open when I am running…so it’s almost like being outside amiright?
#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch? I’ll take a headache – that I can deal with…a side stitch SUCKS
#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off? Probably on a workday…’cause those days are jam packed with work, kids, extra curricular’s…some work days just don’t have enough hours
#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer? I wouldn’t want to put up with all the politics that I am sure go into being a race director, and I think that volunteering is just such a great way to give back to other’s enjoy a sport we love
#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes? Ummm – I am a girl – so what do you think?!?
#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon? I really, really, really want to do a Ragnar…anyone wanna be my friend and do one with me?!?! Please…and besides I prefer to do the Tri solo
Your turn – pick some to answer below…or you can just make me super happy and agree to run a Ragnar relay with me :)
