Wisdom is doing something and going, “Oh, dangit, now I know!” Workout-wise, the past few days were…interesting.
As a result of you having a nice relaxing day, have a HUGE breakfast. Lots of fiber. Grilled peanut butter and apple sandwich. With two apples. Oh yeaaah. This is the kind of breakfast you’d like to sleep off on the beach.
Ten minutes before you leave,make a snap decision! You’re running! And it’s going to be a long run. Oh boy.
Make sure your Garmin’s not charged! Hasn’t been charged in a while? EVEN BETTER.
Throw everything you think you need into your backpack.Make sure you forget your headband so your hair flops crazily all through the run! It’s the latest fashion, you know.
While you’re at it, leave your Body Glide at home, too.
Arrive at the beach at approximately 11 am. Decide to start your run at the hottest part of the day.Luckily, you HAVE packed sunscreen.
Run your four miles! =D
Did I learn, though?NAH! The day after, I ran two miles in the rain (24:52), effectively destroying my phone.
Bad move on my part. Darn rain. Now I know–next time, my phone’s going in a plastic baggie. The run was peaceful and fun, though, so at least that was good. =DIn other news, the lovely Paola over at Sol de Luna tagged me for the Amazing Blogger Award! Thanks, Paola! Her blog is absolutely awesome, definitely check it out! 1) Favorite cartoon character?
(I love Stitch. “O’hana means family,” is a sucker line for me every time. Lilo & Stitch remains one of my favorite movies.) 2) Favorite thing to photograph?
3) Favorite thing to cook?
I do love breakfast. I rarely photograph it, because it’s similar. I love egg with salsa over brown rice, or a grilled pb sandwich with an apple. YUM.
4) Favorite way to exercise?
Running, swimming, and biking! I love all three! =D They each teach me a new appreciation for what my body can do.
5) Favorite movies:
After Lilo & Stitch, I love Catch Me If You Can. The musical is just as awesome.
6) Favorite clothing:
Sunflowers and carnations. They tied.
8) Favorite breakfast?
Scrambled egg with cheddar inside two waffles. *swoon*
Really, I could eat breakfast food all day long. I love almost all kinds of breakfast food, it’s hard to pick!
I love many, but lately I’m loving Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz. Stop making me cry, Hannah!!
10) What is your least favorite food?
Peas. I like sugar snap peas, but regular peas…ick. I try to be an equal opportunity vegetable lover, but peas are a skip every time for me. Who knows why….
11) What would your dream job be?
I want to be an event planner for Walt Disney World. I admire their gold standard of customer service, and I love the area of hospitality.
12) What is your favorite salad topper?
That’s easy! Black beans!
13) Do you have a running mantra?
Yes! Mine is: “Keep moving forward.” No matter how slow I’m going, as long as I keep going, every step is a success. As long as I continue my exercise ventures and try new things, I’ll discover things about myself and the world around me I never would have if I had sprawled on my couch.
It’s a shortened version of this quote, because the short version is easier to chant:
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards very long, we keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Have you had a bad workout recently? Did you learn anything from it?
Because I’m about to go on vacation…what was one of your favorite places to visit on vacation?
