Running · Survey

This or That Tuesday

Hey friends!

Monday’s workout was less than stellar. I got maybe 4.5 hours of quality sleep on Sunday night, so waking up at 5AM was right up there with gum surgery on my list of “wants.”

Yesterday I saw this on one of my favorite blogger’s page so I thought I’d join in! Thanks Christina!

this or that

1. This or that: 5K or a half marathon?
Half marathon!! Typically the first few miles of my runs are the worst. And well, 5K’s are only 3.1 miles…do the math.

2. This or that: flat race in the heat or hilly race in the cold?
Hilly and cold! I just hate running in the heat. Hills aren’t my buddy either, but I think we’re closer than the heat.

3. This or that: new running shoes or a new running outfit?
New running shoes for sure! I can totally run around in an ugly outfit, looking like I picked my clothes out while drunk and in the dark. But running in old shoes can cause injury!

4. This or that: run a half marathon without headphones or Garmin?
Headphones! I’ve ran a couple half marathons without headphones. It really isn’t bad (to me) because I train without headphones for such occasions. Running without a watch? Might as well run naked cause that’s how I’ll feel! #dramaticmuch

5. This or that: race because of the convenience (location, price, travel) or the swag?
Convenience. Races are just so expensive and I love having a conveniently located race. It makes the stress decrease by a billion.

6. This or that: PR but result in an injury or finish strong and missing a PR?
Finish strong. Ugh no way would I want an injury!

7. This or that: 100 squats or 100 push ups? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
Squatsssss all the way. I’m horrible at push ups and I hate them. I have bad shoulders too.

8. This or that: run without socks or without sports bra?
OMG pahaha. What a horrible question! Blisters are horrible so I’d say run without a tata tamer. I’d just run holding them up like a weirdo.

9. This or that: treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
Same street block. I don’t think I’d last on a treadmill for that long. I would run for 30 min on the block in one direction, and then I would switch and run the opposite direction for 30 min.

10. This or that: Ragnar Relay or Marathon Relay team?
I’ve never done either! Can I say both?? 🙂 I guess Marathon Relay since it’s less distance. Then after successfully completing that, I’d try Ragnar 😉

11. This or that: Naked run or naked yoga?
Okay who is the weirdo that came up with this?? A firm neither! Not even going to come up with a creative solution like #8.

12. This or that: Come in 4th in the Olympics or 1st in NYC marathon?
1st in NYC 😉 Although it would be awesome to call yourself an Olympic athlete, coming in 4th in the Olympics would just be heartbreaking.

13. This or that: give up running for 3 years to get a BQ or never BQ but run as much as you want?
Oh man. Super hard question. I’d say give up running for 3 years to get a BQ because assuming that I got that BQ, that means I’m still in amazing running shape and could continue to run after I get that BQ 😉

Your turn! Link back to me if you decide to do this too! I want to read yo answers 🙂

  1. HAHAHA some of these are hilarious!! Naked run or naked yoga!? WTF!?
    I will definitely be doing this later in the week and then linking back up to you, but I totally agree on the shoe thing. And the looking like you got dressed in the dark thing. That’s pretty much the story of my life.

  2. Hahahahah! This is hilarious. I don’t know if I could handle running without a bra. Could you tape them down? Is that against the rules?!

  3. Haha so I’ve had gum surgery, and I think that might be more pleasant than waking up at 5am after only a few hours of sleep. go you!

    Fun questions!! I think all of my answers are the same as yours…except I would definitely suffer blisters WITH a sports bra

  4. I’ve loved seeing this float around the blogosphere!

    I keep reading the PR vs finish strong question and wonder what kind of crazy person would pick the injury! Probably someone who hasnt been injured before!

    1. LOL I know right! I’ve even had to jog across the parking lot in a regular bra and I still held the girls up 😉 Oh lol, my bad. I didn’t actually have gum surgery (I just meant that was on my list of things I don’t want to do) LOL but thank you 😉

  5. Ok I was getting super duper freaked out because I agreed with each and EVERY one of your answers verbatim until I read the last one haha.
    I’d rather run happy forever and ever than not run for 3 years and BQ!

  6. Looks like a nice little incline you’re running there.
    Haha, good stuff! To answer the naked question. I don’t think naked yoga would be too attractive to participate in…but to watch……..
    Ha, truth – there is a nudist colony west of the metroplex here that has a 5k. It just passed. I had seriously considered running it and blogging about it, but didnt get involved in time. Maybe next year!

    1. Haha that little incline gave me shin splints from doing too many hills too quickly. *palm in face*

      LOL power to ya if you decide to do it! I have nothing against people doing that (legally) but I could never do it myself! Way too awkward!

  7. I did ‘This and That’ today (Thursday). It was a fun survey, and I really had to think about some of my answers. Except for the whole running (or doing anything in public) naked question. That was an automatic ‘No’…haha. Thanks for posting this!
