Run a 5K or a marathon? I'm not sure. Is this a trick question? Obviously the 5k, but the marathon is considerably more work and rewarding.
Run without music or run without your GPS? Ugggh...probably without music. :*( I'm too much of a data nerd.
Run a flat race in the heat or a hilly race in the cold? Hilly in the cold. As long as it's not too hilly.
Run alone or run with a group for every run of an entire training cycle? Myself if it's every run.
Get a new pair of running shoes or a new running outfit for free? I love workout clothes, but I think I'm going to go with shoes here.
Train through winter for a spring race or through summer for a fall race? Definitely winter for a spring race (hello AZ winter). However, I'll be training through summer for a fall race (hello AZ summer). Go figure!
Run with a blister the whole time or a side cramp the whole time? Blister. Easy! You forget about blisters after a few minutes.
|^^ I didn't even feel this disaster going on in my shoe. Gross.|
Run on the treadmill for an hour or around the same city block for an hour? Same block! I like those landmarks.
Have a only post-race beer or post-race dessert? Dessert. I have never tasted beer.
If you could only run one race in a year, a big city race like Chicago or a small, local race? BIG race. And how about Chicago; it's on my bucketlist in fact.
Today was track and Chipotle Tuesday! It was 110 degrees when we met up at the track so our workout was 8x400 at a 5 out of 10 effort. Basically a very cautious pace. For some reason it didn't feel terribly hot once I got going, probably due to my awesome Hydroflask and ice cold water.
We were late so I only had time for a warm up and 7x400.
|^^A terrible picture of me working on loosening my hip flexors. I'm trying to be very proactive to avoid issues these next months.|
We are off to bed. Have a fantastic humpday.
