Many thanks to Jared for taking the time out of his hectic life & running schedule to answer two of our questions.
Are you enjoying the marathon training itself?
Answer: I am enjoying some of the training, lol. I actually like the runs up until about 12 miles or so. The longer runs I have done past 12 miles are tough. My legs feel like lead pipes from that point forward. The weather makes a huge difference as well…this summer has been brutally hot in the midwest where I live and has made the training more challenging because of it.
What are your pre and post marathon eating plans….do they include Subway???
Answer: I tend to eat Subway a couple of days a week. The night before a long run (anything more than 12 miles or so) I tend to eat more carbs, like pasta and lots and lots of water to hydrate properly for the next day. I usually eat Subway after the runs when I have a chance…and I usually eat a footlong because I need the nutrition!
*cue musical interlude as I commence awkward segue with common thread of Subway’s Commit to Fit*
We’ve talked a lot up in herre about goal setting, goal achieving & the importance of (waitforit) goals.
What we’ve not yammered about as of late are the various & sundry ways we reward ourselves as we make our way to our bigbigultimategoal (living a healthy, vibrant life).
Im renown for my rewards.
Im the first to treat myself (hello new!book!on!Kindle!) for a job even semi-well done.
Over the top or not I find the promise of treats spurs me on to additional success.
Im all about chasing that new book carrot on on the end of the proverbial stick.
Today, thanks to Subway and their Commit to Fit program, I have a reward to bestow upon you & you can be entered to win for the lowlow cost of a comment below.
Are you like I am and ALWAYS sure to reward a goal nailed no matter how seemingly small?
Or do you, like so many of us women, barely acknowledge your small steps along the way & focus too much on cheering for/encouraging those around you?
(and yeah. as a woman who has never SEEN an article of lululemon clothing let alone worn any Id have to say Subway ROCKS for sending this treat our way.)
Please to hit me up, with your reward of choice BIG or small, in the comments.
Winner announced 10.11.10
FTC: Rumor has it I, too, will receive said giftcard, green bag & yoga mat (!). Please to know Im scampering to the mailbox daily in anticipation of it.
