Research shows that there is a strong correlation between higher geographic altitudes and higher food consumption. Actually, I don't know if there is any research regarding this, but I wanted an excuse for the ridiculous amount of food I've been eating... apart from a lack of self control
My appetite could also be more rationally explained by the fact that I ran this morning and was able to get a bit of hill work and high elevation training in...
I ran with Brooke and we did a trail run. It was so beautiful!
I left my phone in her car so I wasn't able to take any pictures along the route (I know that's like a blogger "no-no"... sorry
). But it was nice to just take in the scenery and simply enjoy it without getting caught up in capturing a "Kodak moment". I also ran without music/podcasts/audiobooks, which was also really really nice.
The morning started out a bit overcast...
...and despite getting sunny shortly after we started, my fingers were still freezing at the end of the 5 miles.
My splits from this morning...
I was a lot slower during miles 4 & 5 because they were uphill...and at the end of my run...and I was really tired.
Today was another great conference day filled with great lectures. I love when the speakers reference work produced by people I've had the honor of working with...
On a completely separate note... Today I had a "pet peeve" moment. I don't have a lot of pet peeves (just a low tolerance for stupid stuff)
; but one pet peeve that I do have is blanket statements
I'm not a big fan of blanket statements or statements about what "all" people should (or should not)
do without acknowledging context. I'll be the first to admit that I probably have made blanket statements myself at some point in the past; however I try not to because it completely annoys me when I hear/read them...
What are your pet peeves?
Do you take pictures of the scenery along your running routes?
Do you eat more or less when you travel?
