A real interesting night in this neck of the woods.
At least I rotated my sweatshirt of the week…. the other one started smelling like the gym.
My night consisted of packing everything I own (I am trying to impress all of my internet friends in Vegas) and eating a baked potato (the same size as my size 10 running shoes) with all of the fixings (cheese and broccoli).
FYI sleeves make a great hot pad for a baked potato.
This was a close one….being the super nutritionally balanced girl that I am;) I almost forgot to show you where my healthy fats for the evening came in the form of:
Peanut butter is good for you no matter what it is wrapped in. Billy and I are still rocking our nightly goal to drink a glass of milk while watching our mandatory television show and seeing who can be the least productive for the longest amount of time.
I always like knowing what people do when they are running a race to get themselves to keep going when they start getting really tired. I talked a little about this HERE but here are a few more:
1. When my legs get really tired I pump my arms harder (I know, it is a waste of energy but my legs can’t slow down when my arms are pumping fast).
2. Turn the music up on my ipod and tell myself I just have to go fast during the chorus of the song.
3. “The faster I go, the sooner I am done.”
4. I love thinking about elite athletes and how they push through to the end and give it their all.
5. I try and remember that the mental fatigue sets in long before the physiological component of fatigue sets in. It’s all in your head….kind of.
6. “Unless you puke, faint or die, keep going. ” Love, Jillian Michaels.
What size shoe do you wear?

What do you do when you start getting tired during a race or hard workout?
