Let's Talk About...

You know what they say about how often men think about sex... I have decided that applies to me, only it's how often I think about running.

It is crazy how often I think about running during my waking hours each day! Before I started running, I thought about working out at least a few times a day. I honestly can't remember going a day without at least fleetingly thinking about going to the gym, popping in a workout video, or doing some strength training while watching a little television.

I'm not sure you get it though. I literally think about what my workout will be or that I need to workout EVERY DAY, multiple times a day. The only time it let up even a little was when I taught yoga and other group fitness classes. Those days I just obsessed about the workout routine instead.

Now that "working out" means running, there is even more to think about. When, where, how long, how far, speedwork, tempo run, pace, when I should eat, what I should eat, what to wear, do I need new shoes, training for my next race, what is my next race, and on and on and on.

I can't imagine it, but I am sure there are people who go through entire days without thinking about doing any type of physical activity. Their next workout isn't a constant thought hovering at the back of their brain, waiting for its next attack on their random train of thought process.

  5. You're funny. I don't think about running THAT much, but I have certainly enjoyed it for a lot of years.

  6. It's so nice to see someone who thinks about running as much as I do. It is my life. I hesitate to say it is who I am because when I can't run I struggle with the loss of identity. It is my passion.

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
