I feel like a cannon ball is really the best way to end a pool running session. 1 hour of running around in the deep end. I have decided that races really are my biggest motivators to work out… thinking about an upcoming race is what gets me up out of bed to work out but when I am not following a training plan for a race then I hit snooze 15 times.
Refuelage with roughage.
I am now a hat person. This hat has been on my head a lot lately. It is perfect for summer because it stays nice and cool since it is white, it is lightweight and it is made with moisture-wicking material . It actually fits my head (my sister and I have this thing where most hats do not actually fit our heads because we have big heads… you think I am being dramatic but I am 100% serious with this one. This hat adjusts to lots of different sizes).
Brooke picked a flower and brought it to me yesterday. It made my week.
I’ve been thinking A LOT about the races that I want to do in 2015 (totally normal since we are half-way through 2014:). So far I know that I want to run the Boston Marathon and a few of my favorite local races that I can’t possibly not run BUT I have been thinking a lot about doing more trail races because I absolutely love running on the trails (and my body feels best when I do). I love the variety and you can’t beat the scenery!
Maybe I’ll even do an ultra next year? Anyone want to do one with me?!? Any recommendations of some really beautiful ones?
And on another completely different note, I have been seeing this article floating around The Facebook (it is more fun to add The before saying Facebook).
A few of the foods on this list include—> artificial sweeteners, soda, candy, fried foods, processed meats, movie theater popcorn, commercial cereal and low fat food (pre-packed diet foods).
What do YOU think are some of the most unhealthy foods?
Ever done a trail race? Which one? Anyone have the desire to run an ultra soon?
One of your biggest motivations lately to work out?!
