THIS is something i never have to do: I have to juggle around my running schedule this week, and I’m a little nervous about it? I have no chance to do a long run this weekend or even Friday due to jam-cram-crazy-packed fun sat/sun, so I’ll be doing it on Thursday(today). I’m a bit nervous because my last long run was only five days ago. I don’t know why I’m stressing..i love running long, I love running(duh), and overall, i shouldn’t be a big baby about it..but I am! I guess I just want to “do really well.” (when do I not? Who says “I want to have a crappy run today”?) #nicolejustshutupandrun
THIS is my favorite playlist right now:
YES, I know…I love Eric Church, and
I’m his biggest fan it borders on obsession. He is on all playlists I create because I heart him. And say what you will about T Swifty, but the girl writes a mean lyric and it has a terrific beat to run to!
THIS is the Biggest Lie Ever.
I LOVE kale, I do. I have it twice a day in my smoothies or with my dinner. I’ve even grilled it. I think it’s delicious, nutritious, and a super food.
But Kale will never be/replace/compete against bacon. NO, NO, NO. #lies
THIS is my very weird/random shoe dilemma that I would like and appreciate your perspective on: I am a Brooks shoe SNOB. That’s no secret.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been doing all my long runs and marathons in my Ghost’s. (Currently, I’m in the 7) But lately I’ve been doing 75% of all my runs in my Pureflows: I’m talking speed, tempos, easy runs, and my last 4 half marathons have also been in those bad boys. I’m debating doing my October Baystate in them—>even though they’re a lighter shoe and typically, I like the cushioning I get from the Ghost’s. So to get myself ready/test that out, I’m going to do a long run in them. Today actually. I’m doing that long run today in a lighter (6.3 ounces for the Pureflow, 7.8 for the Ghost) shoe and it makes me nervous..but you never know until you try right?? stay tuned for an update on the condition of my legs/feet post 20 mile shenanigans.
Question: What shoes do you do your marathons in? Cushioned vs lighter or racing flat???
