Just a heads up that this post is a whole lot of random. But that’s the way most of my posts are, so I’m sure you’re not surprised. I am nicknaming today my “triple 3” day. Why’s that? Because it is day three of week 3 of marathon training, and I had 3 miles on the schedule today. I decided to go run around town, since I am getting bored of doing all of my weekday runs on the roads around our house. It went well and I enjoyed the change in scenery. The scenery itself wasn’t too bad, either.
Let’s talk about bathroom breaks for a minute. I think I have had to stop for at least one bathroom break on every single run I’ve done since July 1. I don’t know what is going on. I haven’t changed my diet, so I don’t think that’s the culprit. The only thing I can figure is the recent increase in temperature.
I finally made a decision on my treadmill. On Monday I put in my order for a NordicTrack C900!!!
When it came down to it, I chose this one over the ProForm because of the extra cushioning it has. No shin splints for me!
Now the question is this: When my beloved new treadmill (never thought I’d use ‘beloved’ and ‘treadmill’ in the same sentence…) arrives, should I name it? My personal car is named “Hey Car” and my work car is named “Willis”, so I’m thinking my treadmill is also going to need a name.
In case you missed it: Jordan Hasay ran 31:46 in the 10,000 meters (a 20 second PR!), meeting the B standard, and will be heading to Moscow for the World Championships.
She was only 1.42 seconds off of the A standard. The World Championships are in August and this will be Hasay’s first time competing in them!
What should I name my treadmill?
Do you have a name for your car? What is it?
Has anyone else noticed a correlation in bathroom breaks and the increase in temperature?
