Subway hooked us up for dinner last night at Parent/Teacher conference. You are welcome for the blurry picture. It was kind of tough asking my student and their parent to hold the convo for a minute so that I could take a picture of my food to show all of my best internet friends.
I don’t know if I will ever be able to eat fruit without fruit dip again in my entire life.
After I ate that, all I could think of was having one of these….King sized only, I was not going to even think about messing around with a single serving bar.
Turns out 7-11 and Walmart DO NOT deliver. I called many times, I received the same answer each and every time. Then it was time to go home, and it was already past my bedtime.
Was I hungry when I came home? No siree.
Did I faceplant into a mug(S) of cereal right after I changed into PJ’s? What do you think……….stress/tired/annoyed eating at its finest:)
As I am increasing my mileage I really want to be just a little smarter than my normal…let’s see how many miles I can run in a week before I can make my bones crack mentality. I ran on Wednesday and GASP….I won’t be running again until SATURDAY, heaven forbid:)
I found an AWESOME article at Runningtimes.com (my obsession) by Peter Pftzinger about OPTIMIZING your mileage. It is an awesome article and when I came across this section I knew it was written just for me:
Another way to improve your aerobic base, with less risk of injury, is by aerobic crosstraining. Any form of aerobic training causes “central” adaptations that improve your cardiovascular system (e.g., ability of your heart to pump more blood per contraction), and “peripheral” adaptations within the working muscles. Therefore, all aerobic training is beneficial, but the closer the activity simulates running, the more transferable the adaptations in the muscles will be. The types of crosstraining with the greatest cross-over to running include: deep-water running, elliptical training, stair climbing, cross-country skiing (classic technique) and, to a somewhat lesser extent, cycling. Crosstraining is particularly important if you have a propensity toward injury, or if you live where winter or summer weather interferes with your training.
Ellipctical/bike/stair climber…….I look forward to our early morning dates together for the next rest of my life when I am not with my first love, running.
DON’T forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!!!
Randomest question of the day….What show are YOU looking forward to most this fall?
What do you think? Does cross-training help to prevent injuries? Experience with this?
Current FAVORITE form of cross-training (I have asked this before but I think it is something that changes for most people over time, especailly me)?
What food is an automatic GONER in your kitchen when you get home from a stressful/tiring/long day?
-Cereal but it had never tasted so good.
