Look who came with me to the track yesterday!It’s always motivating to have a buddy cheer you on. Especially when you are dying for breath after your eighth 800m dash.It was tough, but I met my goal time of 3:20-3:25 for each one. AND the rain held out until my workout was done — nice to have Mother Nature on my side for once! (Remember when she snowed on me during a recent track trial?)
Anthony even remembered to take the obligatory track +shoe photo.What’s on the minutes per mile menu today, you ask? TACOS!My mom whipped out another crazy kitchen creation the other night — these baked taco bowls. You just throw a tortilla in ’em and bake away! Then you get the cutest little tortilla crater.Though the taco bowls were pretty cool, the highlight of the night was a Chip Off.The Better Chip was thick and salty, the Tostitos Cantinas were light and greasy. Winner = Tostitos. But we ate both for good measure.
Last night we held another throw down in the form of ice cream sandwiches. Mayfield vs. Purity.The winner: Purity. It was super close, but Purity tasted a bit more pure! (And we’re keen on them because they sponsored my 10k last week).
I know this post has already given you all the information you wanted and ever needed to know, but I’ve been meaning to share some answers to three questions I get asked a lot:
1. What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon D500 or a Panasonic Lumix when I’m not running, and a Sony DSC-TX10 or my iPhone 4s when I’m running. I carry my phone/iPhone in my hand when I run (or throw it in a jacket pocket during the winter)
2. Do you run every day?
No. I usually run 4-6 days a week depending on what I”m training for.
3. I’m running my first full/half marathon. What should I do?
If your goal is just to finish, I always say Hal Higdon’s novice 1 programs are a tried-and-true approach! If your goal is to finish fast, I say do one track workout a week.
If you ever have questions or recommendations for a post, let me know! If not, I’ll just keep holding junk food competitions and sharing the results.
See you tomorrow!
