I couldn’t figure out which sweaty picture was worse, so I posted both of them for your viewing entertainment. Hopefully, you aren’t reading this while you are eating.
You guessed it…..One mile PAIN FREE. Score. I keep reminding myself that one mile pain free does not mean I can jump into things again quickly and increase my mileage too fast.
Don’t worry all of that sweat isn’t from running one mile, I took an hour long spin class before. I do have to say a MILE is a LONG WAY!!! It is crazy how messed up our perception gets when we are training for long races and thinking that an 8-miler is a easy or recovery run.
Remember. ONE MILE is awesome. No matter where you are in your fitness level, how many miles you are running a week, a mile is a huge accomplishment!
I promise you that I will never post a sweaty picture of me again unless I am wearing black and you cannot see my heart shaped sweat lines.
I am really loving my Saucony Riders 3!! I will talk more later about how I don’t think minimal shoes are for me. I am going to stick with what worked in the past for me which would be using normal trainers and racing in racing flats!
Can I tell you a secret. I did not eat one vegetable yesterday. I made up for it today. Please note the tupperware container is the size of my computer.
Layer one: lettuce, carrots, broccoli, celery.
Layer two: cottage cheese, turkey and more broccoli.
Layer three: lettuce, raspberries, more cottage cheese, deviled egg, and apple.
Covered in the most deliciousness thing in a bottle ever.
The rest of the afternoon will be spent next to the trash. Why do cherries have to be so delicious yet require so much effort to eat. Yes, I realize that I could just spit the seeds out in a bowl while sitting at the table, but I choose to do things differently.
Don’t pretend like you would never change out of your gym clothes if you didn’t have to go anywhere all day.
When you are training for a longer distance race does your perception of what a ‘short’ or ‘long’ run get a little crazy?
-During taper before a marathon I realize how crazy I am for thinking a 12 miler on a weekend is going to be easy compared to the usual long runs!
How old were you when you went on your very first run (not for PE etc)?
-I talked about it more HERE but I was 12 years old.
What shoes are you currently using for working out?
