Hi guys. I was tagged by the fabulous Tutus and Tennies and I haven’t done something like this in a while so I figured why not. I always find it fun to read people’s answers to these things in order to see what we have in common and which of their answers are different than mine.
2.) Time of day: Morning, Noon or Evening?
Morning – I prefer morning runs; however, I only get those in on weekends. On weekdays I leave my house at 6:30 for work and I just cannot force myself to wake up at 4:something so I would have time to run, shower, and have breakfast before work. On workdays afternoon/night time is where it is at.
3.) Weather: Sunshine, Mild or Hot?
Mild – I would rather it be overcast if it means it is mild instead of being sunshining and burning hot. It is almost May in the South so we are hitting that hot and humid point all ready.
4.) Fuel: Before, After and sometimes during?
Fuel – On short runs there is no before/during fueling. However, for my long runs I have a GF waffle with PB before, Nuun and Honey Stingers Chews (I can’t do the consistency of gels) during my run, and then lunch/brunch after.
5.) Accessories: Music, Watch or more?
Depends – I usually use both my little iPod Shuffle and my Garmin on my runs (see photo below), but sometimes I leave the Garmin at home and run “naked” so I won’t worry about time and anytime I am running with a friend I ditch the music.
6.) Rewards: Food, wine or ?????
Food – I prefer to eat my calories. Dear heavens I love food. I usually day dream about it while running.
7.) Type of run: Long, tempo, intervals, hill repeats, progression, or recovery/easy?
Long – My Saturday morning long runs are my happy time. I cannot even think of what I would do with myself if I didn’t run long on Saturday.
I am supposed to tag 7 people to answer these questions about their running favorites.
However, I am a bit of a rebel so I say any of you who want to do this, and haven’t already, go for it.
What would your answers be?
Do we have any in common? Which ones are different?
