I had no desire to be cold this morning. I did what we runners do best when we aren’t really feeling like going outside for a run quite yet…. procrastinate (and in my case I procrastinated for 5 hours because I wouldn’t step foot outside until it was the warmest it was going to get for the day… aka 50 degrees ((I am a disgrace to my Utah friends and family)).
Things I did to procrastinate running:
Make dinner (in the crockpot), clean (I never do that), eat breakfast, eat every snack in the house, read Brooke every book that she owns, emails, take creepy pictures of myself to show you that I wore every color of the rainbow for my run today, pluck my eyebrows, read every blog known to man and organize our food cupboards.
Let’s take a second to talk about shoes before I talk about my run. I had someone ask me the other day how I rotate my shoes. I used to be obsessed with rotating my shoes and wearing a specific shoe for each run. I probably had 3 different types of shoes and brands of shoes that I would switch off between throughout the week. HERE is post that I did a while ago about all of the different shoes I was using at the time.
Now I wear the exact same shoe for easy runs, speed work, long runs, hill work and even trail running (I am really wanting to get some trail specific shoes though). I think it is because I found my shoe and so I have no desire to wear anything else. My shoes are light, comfortable and fit my foot perfectly (Brooks PureFlow 2s).
I am glad I took 2 paragraphs to answer a simple answer…. I don’t rotate shoes anymore.
We finally made it out at 12 ish for a slow, easy 8 miles on the bike trail. If you ever come visit me I am taking you on this bike trail… you never have to stop, there are other runners/bikers everywhere along the path, it is super smooth (no bumps=less likely for me to trip) and the scenery is gorgeous.
My legs feel like led after yesterdays speed workout so I took it really easy
To continue on with my snacking day, I am about to eat beef jerky and my strawberry banana juice. My love for this juice is getting out of hand.
My car is currently not working so I guess that means I am forced to stay home the rest of the day and watch The Biggest Loser.
Are you a runner procrastinator? What sort of things do you do to procrastinate a run?
Do you rotate running shoes? Have you found YOUR shoe?
Are you more of a snacker all day or a 3 meals a day kind of person?
Have you had any car problems lately?
