Wednesday, Outside: 10 miles - 1:43:25 5.8m/h(10:20ish pace??)
I woke up this morning and did my own little planking / squating / push-up'ing (??) routine at home.
After yesterday's snowy -20 something weather, I checked today and saw that it was -15. You know you're Canadian when you get excited that it "warmed up" to -15.
Out the door I went for 10miles!
1.) Because of the snow yesterday, SO much of the sidewalks were not cleaned. It was teeerrible running conditions. The first 4.7 miles was slushy, snowy, slippery & slow.
My shoes at the end of the run. ick:
2.) Miles 5-10 , I did NOT listen to any music. This simply has never happened before. And look, I survived!!
3.) My leg-recovery time has seriously improved. I used to really feel the soreness after a long run, but everything snaps right back to normal now and I feel like I could run another 10 tomorrow!
What do you consume/eat for fueling?
What running distance do you always fuel at?? (Example if it's 13+ total miles you plan on running etc..)
WHEN do you fuel?? At what mile of your total run?
I have NEVER done any type of fueling. I've never eaten anything during a run. My stomach is pretty sensitive so I always worry that it'll just sit really badly.
The half marathons I run, or any run basically, the only thing I've ever consumed would be water and gatorade (at races).
At the end of the day, I know everyone is different and I'm just going to have to experiment to find something for me. I just have nooo idea where to start so any recommendations is appreciated! If I can find something chocolatey and that agrees with me, I will be goooooood.
I finally saw Silver Linings Playbook last night!
Who's seen this?? Did you like it?
*Clears throat for my budding movie reviewing career*
When doing all my studies for this Pharmacist career thingy that I chose, I've always been very intrigued and interested in mental health - things like bipolar, schizophrenia, depression etc. The medication/treatments and mechanisms always interested me.
I thought it was a pretty good movie. I seriously enjoyed it during the movie..but after it was over and I thought about it, I wasn't sure if it was REALLY as good as it was hyped up to be?? Maybe a bit anti-climatic?? There were some things I was a bit confused about towards the end as well.
I thought the acting was great though. I think Bradley Cooper did a wonderful job in this. Highly impressed. I really enjoyed the relationship/scenes between Cooper and his mom and dad. Very real. I thought the general dialogue and interactions between Cooper and J.Lawrence was very realistic as well.
I'd definitely recommend it!
