Fitness Friday 1/17

For today's Fitness Friday, I thought it would be fun to link up with Cori from Olive to Run for a little Would You Rather.



#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? This might come as a surprise, but I'd definitely prefer a snowstorm over a thunderstorm. There is something so calm and peaceful about running in the snow. Now, if the snow didn't have to come with cold...

#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth? Nose. It just seems cleaner and healthier, though I do a lot of mouth breathing - especially when I run. Or have a cold.

#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)] 100 squats. I don't know why. I think they seem easier. Gotta work my core more!

#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree? Definitely a baked good. Or chocolate. Or anything sweet.

#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour? Treadmill. At least there I could zone out instead of having to dodge pedestrians that aren't paying attention.

#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch? Hmm. I think I'd go with headache.

#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off? On a day off, so I can make it an active rest day and do something fun OR do absolutely NOTHING at all.

#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer? Definitely volunteer. It's so fun! Plus, you don't get all the negativity that RDs can sometimes get.

#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes? Running shoes. They don't seem to last as long as the gadgets, and really they're all you need. :)

#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon? I ♥ relays!! So, I guess I'd prefer them.

As for my weekly recap, I didn't do the best this week. :(

My cold really kicked in earlier this week, so my workouts really petered off, plus work has been very stressful this week. Lots of changes and uncertainty. A few people were let go for some restructuring. Luckily not me, but some great, long-time employees. It was sad to see them go. :(

Now, if I can just kick this cold and refocus on my workouts and drinking water and BEING HAPPY!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Any exciting weekend plans? Jeff and I are hopefully going to the top of the Stratosphere this weekend. It's free for locals in January, so I'm really excited to go! Plus, we get to check off January's new thing from our 2014 goals.

  3. This is a fun list. I'm with you on the squats. Crunches are overrated anyway and not that great for you back. :) Hmmm, I'm still considering the treadmill vs running around the block....

    1. Treadmill vs running around the block. That's definitely a tough one.

    1. Normally, I'd agree, but the thoughts of running around in circles kind of makes me crazy, but how is that different from a TM??

  7. Fun! I love this would you rather! I'm with you on the squats, but I think I'd go around the block a few times instead on the treadmill.

    1. I'm thinking around the block wouldn't be so bad - depending on the size of the block. My block is actually huge, so it probably wouldn't even be that many laps. LOL. I really don't mind the TM that much, though.
