Would You Rather Running Style Survey

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.

  1. I loved that post too and I think we answered a lot of the questions the same. Too bad we don’t live closer so we could run together though a snowstorm while we breathe through our mouths!…even if it’s around the same block multiple times (which I have done!) just to avoid the treadmill.
    Love the pic of you as a snow woman/runner. Feels so good to be home on those days!

  2. I followed the link on the 14 in 2014 facebook page to your blog :) I usually prefer outside running to inside but I’m not sure how I’d feel about the same block over and over! In that case, I might choose the treadmill as long as I had a tv show to keep me company.

  3. I love this!! Yes I’m with you on squats and running outside in the snow…Almost every summer I get stuck in a thunderstorm and I’m convinced that I am going to get struck my lightening! Last year I was with a running group in Boston and we were literally running away from a thunderstorm!!! I kept thinking, “OMG Adam(my husband) is going to kill me if I get struck by lightening!” It’s no wonder where my daughter gets her love of sweets from…on Christmas my youngest literally ate all my dinner…not to worry, I ate my dinner of desserts! Now to work them off!!
