morning babble / Wednesday 10-30-23
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Happy Monday – talking about some goals on a Monday. Haven’t done this in awhile.
Setting ’em up / Knocking ’em down
I can say that I did this “I ran” / Here’s the bib that I wore (bib clip)
My goal was to set a set a PR (Personal Record) for a 5K run. I’ll get to the part about the PR later, but first, This is follow up what I did to prepare for this race
1. Game Plan
I ran hard every day last week AND on Friday – it was 10k. I pushed hard by a friend of mine too – felt great to have that happen. This past weekend – only ran on Sunday.
Arms hurt because of pull-ups / BJJ – coming for you (Will Ferrell clip)
2. Diet – Definitely Ate!
Last week, I did my own specialty diet for 5 Days – Black Coffee for Breakfast, Bone Broth for Lunch, Grilled Chicken breast for dinner / Snacking – 2 cups of Frozen Blueberries.
Did it because I wanted to lose some weight to go faster. Which did happen.
What I was trying to avoid which I experience during a 3-Day Fast is the slight cramping in the legs, a lethargic feeling, But – I got those AND headaches.
Losing weight – i will be shaving . . . just like a swimmer before a big race. Michael Phelps. (Phelps video)
3. Attire – Definitely Dressed!
Did you know that there are naked 5K runs? Next year – April 27th, 2024 – in Wildwood there’s the 26th Annual Skinnydipper Sun Run 5K. I’m not doing it. (Seinfeld clip) Don’t need that.
4. Breathing – it’s Important
Mouth Tape / Inhaler / Two quick breaths in, one long exhale – Breathing Technique
5. P.R. Set? / Nope!
Next up – 51st Annual Newark Turkey Trot 10k / 5k on November 18, 2023 Newark, DE
I’ve got some work ahead
