Happy Jersey Shore Finale! Today’s Three Thing Thursday is quite random..
- I set a new personal distance record today..11 miles! I decided to switch my long run to today so I didn’t have to worry about getting up early on Saturday or watching what I eat/drink Friday night. 11 miles is freaking LONG..it felt so much longer then 10. Splits ranged from 8:14-9:22 and average was 8:57.
Took this one for my sister Peace, Love and 11 miles Lexy
And I am trying to be AWESOME
2. Speaking of running..I keep getting terribly cold and start shivering uncontrollable after these long runs. Its worse when it’s really cold out but today it was 35 and Sunny, not warm by any means, but I’ve run in worse, and I still was so cold. It lasts forever after I get done running, normally gets better after I take a shower, change my clothes, and wrap myself in a blanket. I did a lot of google-ing and saw answers from dehydration to electrolyte imbalances. Does this happen to anyone else? How do I make it stop?? My dad said I was perfectly fine and it was nothing to worry about but I took my temp after like an hour and it was 95.2, I feel like that is way too low.
3. And in the spirit of making 3 thing Thursday completely random, lets talk about Chicken!
I am quite terrible at cooking chicken normally but the other day I decide to try cooking it in a crock pot. It was so yummy! I put three chicken breasts in the crock pot with a can of chicken broth and let it sit for 4.5 hours. It was perfectly tender and shredded apart so deliciously. I made a BBQ ranch chicken pizza thingy on Tuesday night and then tonight Sean cooked up some pasta (I was too busy trying to avoid death by shivers).
And now I am hoping I can stay warm long enough to go get some fro-yo. I promised myself my whole run I would go get some if I finished it (not that I need to run to get fro-yo, I am just trying not to spend money on buying food right now since my credit card bill is purely from Subway, Argo Tea, and Starbucks right now).
Have you ever run 11 miles? Did you fuel during it?
-This was the first time I tried to eat or drink anything. I stashed a water bottle on my route and probably drank 1/2 of it and then I ate 2 power bites. Not exactly proper fueling but better than nothing!
Do you get cold after you run? Do you know why this happens?
Do you think food on blue plates is unappetizing looking?
-Apparently that’s true..or maybe my pizza just doesn’t look pretty but I sweat its yummy!
