Do you think Hal Higdon would accept a day of eating noodles drenched in peanut sauce, buffalo chicken dip, pizza and soon-to-be two cupcakes as cross training?
Maybe if I was trying to get this guy’s job.
But, for a marathon? I don’t think so.
Too bad. Hopefully, some of the walking at the mucky pumpkin patch will count toward the 50 minutes I was supposed to do today.
Tomorrow is 8 miles. Yes. EIGHT MILES. Dude. I have not purchased a fuel belt yet and I am regretting my food choices today. I don’t feel ready for eight. I’m worried about the aching feet and hips I get around six miles. Should I take Ibuprofin before? Should I put blister Band-Aids on? Anyone want to share some tips?
Oh man, seven seemed like a lot. Eight seems impossible. I guess I will find out tomorrow.
I hope the 8 miles went well! Forget Hal, Buffalo Chicken dip is one of the greatest inventions EVER!!
I did my 8, which turned out to be 7 once I looked it up on mapmyrun.com…I have a little catching up to do! Heather M.
glad to find you! I like almost all the same movies that you do and I am a runner!! Woo~Hoo!Stop by
By now I hope that you tackled 8 miles in style. I am not 100% sure if it is OK to do or not but I ALWAYS take a few Ibuprofen before I run.. You should not need bandaids if you have the right shoes and socks..Sooooo I live in Puyallup, but I work in Renton near Ikea. So I run on the Cedar and Greenriver trails.. I am only there on my lunch hour…are you ever there mid day?
Thanks [email protected] – I KNOW. I'd never had it before. It's so [email protected] M. – I'm glad you got to go! I thought I was going to have to go early this morning, so I didn't think we'd be able to go together, but I didn't leave till 10 [email protected] – Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to come visit. :)@Mel – It's my right foot that's having problems because it's a half-size smaller than my left. My left foot is great! I definitely need socks, though, and am hoping that will help. And, DUDE! I work in Renton near IKEA, too. Not sure I have enough time to run at lunch, though. I've tried running near work and barely make it back in time. I'll shoot you an e-mail!
One of the reasons I run is so I don't have to worry too much about my diet. A tip for eight – run on a soft surface if you can find one. It's much more enjoyable on trails instead of pounding the pavement.
Thanks, CoachTief! I ended up scheduling the second half of my run on trails, and it definitely was easier on my joints!
