Don't be that guy

I am cracking up this morning as Julie shared the below video with me on Facebook.


I am sure I am some random combo of all of these people! Reminds me of the picture that was floating around last week.   I will try my best tonight to not look like the above video when running tonight. The plan is 4 Mi w/ 2 @ 11:40 w/ 800 jogs. Those 2 miles are going to be tough but I am going to push through and get them done.

In other news, I think I need to work a mid week rest day in to my plan. By Thursday I am just exhausted. I need to figure something out to help keep my energy levels up through out the week.  Any suggestions? I am terrible at taking vitamins, I try and probably take them about 50% of the time.

How do you keep going through out the week?

  1. Have you had your iron tested at the doctor? I sometimes take a supplement, especially once a month, if you know what I mean.

    Julie sent me that video too, I had the same thoughts, knowing I've looked like each one of those dorks at one time or another!

  2. OK..at first I laughed and then I thought that I too probably look like one of these guys toward the end of my runs. Soooo, no more laughing and be proud to be out there doing some thing no matter how crazy you look!!!!

    I drank 2.5 cups of coffee this morning and my 3.33 miler felt full of energy. ;-) However, when I drank that much before a slow 8 miler I was dead by mile 6.

    Sleep and eating right are definite energy boosts for me but, I LOVE my sugar too...so don't listen to me! HA!

  3. LOL! I'm so thankful to live in an area with lots of runners so I'm reassured on a daily basis that there are plenty of runners out there who look at least as weird as I do :)

  5. That's pretty hilarious. Watching the black guy run, slamming his feet into the ground actually hurts my knees just watching it.

    I'm sure I run funny. Once in a gym class we had to run sprints and when I was running towards the side of the room with the mirror I was horrified. Now I just don't look.

  6. Love the video! Pretty sure I am at least one of these, especially by the end of my runs!
