Honestly I think every Friday should end with a pub run! I’m so excited for some fun and beer tonight with adidas!
It’s kind of a crazy running day. Elya and I need 11 miles for our long run this weekend, but I’m running a 5K in the morning. So, we are meeting early before the pub run to get 4 miles in, then running 2 miles with the group to the pub(s), and then 2 miles back to the store. Add on the 3 I’m doing in the morning, and 3 she will run on her own/with a friend, and we will piece together 11 miles in less than 24 hours. Not the perfect training plan, but it’s better than nothing.
Normally I don’t condone pub running the night before a race, but it’s St. Paddy’s Day weekend, and I’m taking it easy pace wise for all of it. This weekend’s running is about having fun, sporting the outfit I put together, and kicking off the running season with Elya and Michelle! Plus, I don’t plan on drinking more than a few sips at each pub, so I won’t have any issues in the am. Smart fun is the best fun!
I found this the other day on FB and Love it!
It’s the #1 reason you don’t see me posting about dieting, watching what I eat etc on this blog. My personal truth is diets don’t work. It’s a temporary state of being that isn’t sustainable over a lifetime. I restate that is MY PERSONAL TRUTH. Some people find success with diets/eating plans and that is great for them.
I don’t. I would rather have a little bit of yummy than a lot of bland. Thankfully I don’t have a problem limiting my portions (using salad plates for dinner is great!), and while I don’t give in to every little craving I also don’t think deprivation is mentally healthy. Let’s say I’m craving a snickers I let it go for a few days, if after 2 or 3 days I still can’t stop thinking about it, then you know what I have the snickers bar and I don’t feel bad about it.
Everyone has to do what works for them, this works for me. The fact I’m maintaining my weight/clothing size for 5+ years, even though I’m getting closer and closer to 40, makes me think I have a pretty good handle on my eating and training!
Who’s running a St. P Day race this weekend?
What’s your favorite beer?
