Other times, you just have to choose what jar to eat your oatmeal out of. Today was one of those days:
This might seem like a petty decision to you, but it's going to set the tone for the rest of my day, you know? So did I go with the rich, creamy peanut butter? Or the sweet chocolaty nutella?
And there you have it. PB won. I have to confess, the real reason I made that choice was that there was a giant spoonful of Pb left in the bottom of the jar. How could I waste that? Yum!
Yesterday's workouts were certainly not noteworthy. I had to postpone my long run because my back was (and still is) pretty achey. I ended up doing 40 minutes of yoga (2 20-minute videos from yogadownload.com) and taking an easy 3 mile walk instead. I'm sure that was the best thing to do, but my body feels off. It knows it needs to run! Hopefully today I'm feeling up for my long run. I'll keep it easy and call it quits if my back is still giving me any trouble.
Ok, I have a confession for you guys. I told my husband and he couldn't believe I held it back from the blog. It's just too good. On Sunday night I ran a tempo run. It was the fastest, by far, that I had ever run more than a mile or so. It was also on the treadmill after a whole lot of kale for lunch. Near the end, let's say I was... feeling some intestinal disturbances. I wanted to tough it out because I had to see if I could make it all 5 miles. Eventually though, I had to let one go. Immediately I felt better and relaxed. Thirty seconds later, I hear 2 boys arguing on the treadmills behind me. I knew what was coming.
"No way dude, that was totally you!"
"Whatever, it was you!"
I admit, I felt a little guilty. Not guilty enough to speak up and admit it was me, but guilty enough to run with my head down for a couple of minutes.
Your turn. Please make me feel better by sharing your embarrassing gym/running stories.
Ultimate decision: Peanut butter or nutella?
Even though I love nutella, I eat way more PB. I honestly couldn't survive without the stuff. If we're being really specific, ALWAYS crunchy over smooth.
