Last week Cori posted a fun Would You Rather survey. I love stuff like that so I had to do it. Plus, it’s just another excuse to chat about running, right?
#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
During a hot summer day, definitely thunderstorm. But if it’s March, 40 degrees and raining, just give me a snowstorm. When you are soaked and cold, it’s miserable. Or if it’s a marathon, 30ish degrees, windy and buckets of rain are being dumped on you – give me a snowstorm. So I guess I’m saying I’d rather have a snowstorm. Or when it’s 5 degrees perhaps?
#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
I’d choose a combo. But if I was only allowed one, mouth. Breathing only through my nose while running feels weird.
#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
Squats for days. Just not one legged squats. Those are the serious burners.
#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
Baked good. I’ll have a brownie please.
#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
Same block. I’d make a game out of it to run each lap faster than the last.
#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
Side stitch. Running with a headache sucks. It feels like your head is going to explode and you want to throw up all at the same time. Done it. Not fun.
#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
My rest days are usually Friday, which are a work day.
#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
Volunteer. Being a director would just be too stressful.
#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Shoes! I can run without any of the other gadgets. Although, technically I could run without shoes but that would be really, really painful in the winter.
#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
Distance of a triathlon. Give me distance any day.
Now it’s your turn! Answer any or all of the questions in the comments.
