I went shopping over the weekend and bought my dog a new Santa Claus loofa dog. She loves it! I'm sure she will have the legs chewed off in a couple of days.
Friday, I received my January issue of Runner’s World in the mail. This is always a special treat; I love pulling the stack of mail out of the mail box and seeing a brand new issue nestled among all of the bills and junk mail. Friday, there was a new Runner’s World AND a new People magazine in there. All in the same day!!! I was so excited!
This should tell you how pathetic my social life is.
There were a lot of good articles in there. I also found a list of Runner’s Rules, which was from the book “The Runner’s Rule Book” by Mark Remy. I thought that I would post them because a lot of them pertain to me.
1.) If you see a porta potty with no line, use it. Even if you don’t need to.
2.) If you have to ask yourself, does this driver see me? The answer is no.
3.) If you have to ask yourself, are these shorts too short? The answer is yes.
4.) 1 glazed doughnut = 2 miles
5.) You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip.
6.) Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is.
7.) Nobody has ever watched Chariots of Fire from beginning to end. Not even the people who made it.
8.) You can never have too many safety pins on your gym bag.
9.) Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day.
10.) If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you’re a runner.
Good stuff to know. I always adhere to rule number one. Katie-pay particular attention to rule number two. Everyone else-pay particular attention to rule number five.
Saturday I got in an easy 4 mile run in out in the freezing cold. I swear even my brain was frozen by the time I got home. I wasn’t thinking very straight, so it had to be a block of ice. Sunday, I tackled the 1 hour stability ball routine. The routine included a lot of core and arm work and I am sore! I did however; manage to stay on the ball this time. I had some issues with falling off the ball while doing ab work last week. It wasn’t a pretty sight.
Hope everyone has a great week of training!
