My Running Accessories

Monday, February 27, 2012

Tonight, I am kinda down.

Sometimes when I am down, I buy. Today, I brought a fuel pack.

Sometimes when I am down, I like to be creative. I present the photo below. Find the fuel pack. Those are my running accessories.



I definitely am feeling like an endurance runner these days with these kind of accessories!

  Hi Savannah........
When I look at the picture of your tools, I think of them as little visual motivators. When you look at them, you KNOW that your races are definitely a reality to get ready for.
I'm proud of your accomplishments.

    It's amazing how the "peripherals" can help you feel like you're "really doing it." When I have to do overtime from home, I put on pumps (no matter what else I'm wearing) just so I "feel" like a professional. A pair of really high heels was my first purchase when I got my current job, in the spirit of "fake it 'til you make it" and it's amazing how effective they were at making me feel like a real grownup/heavy-hitter/real boy. Still are.

Here's to the power of a great kit!

EIGHT miles today! Woot!

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Besides testing my physical and mental limitations, my first marathon will test my self confidence. That will be MY biggest test.

Already I started to doubt my nutrition. That was yesterday, if you missed it. But, the lesson is that I can trust my body. I know what's best for ME and I need to follow that. So, I put the nutrition books away, out of sight.

Besides the nutrition books out of sight, I think the scale is next. Many different friends have encouraged me to not weigh myself during marathon training. Honestly, I am not sure if I can do that. (It scares me to admit that.) But, for Lent, I am giving up the scale. I've gotten obsessed about it and that scares me. I know I am dangerously close to an eating disorder. Not cool.

But, you know what IS cool?

Me running EIGHT miles today! That is right! I got it done today. I have a half marathon on St. Patrick's Day and before today my longest run was 6 miles. I was seriously getting nervous and not in a good way. I have two weeks to finish up training and than 1 week to taper.

Here is a photo when I was half way done with my run today.


During my run, I decided I need to get myself a fuel belt.. my jacket has alot of nice pockets but I do not plan on wearing it in June. So, if you have a favorite fuel belt, I am taking suggestions!

    Congrats and good on you.....you'll find that the adrenaline alone at the race will help you add 3-4 miles to your longest run to date, so you're well on your way.

I really like the Camelback Lobo for marathon training.....it was a little heavy with 100 oz of water, but I would drink the whole thing on a long 18-20 mile run

I am curious as to how to fuel up for a half. Is it necessary? I will be having family come to the half way point and have water bottle refills. I found out yesterday that 1 bottle will not be enough for me.

Marathon Training: Most Overwhelming Aspect

Friday, February 24, 2012

Do you know what's the most overwhelming aspect in all this marathon training?

Nutrition.

What to eat. What not to eat. What days to eat. Getting the right ratios of carbs, protein, or fat. All these rules are enough to make anyone run for the hills.

Right now, I am sitting here thinking how I should eat something. Ideally, a pasta meal would be a good idea because tomorrow is a planned 8 mile run. But, I don't feel like eating pasta. I could to have mac-n-cheese or this other pasta meal which doesn't fill me up.

Or I should say carbs do not fill me up. Period. I really noticed that this morning. I wasn't feeling like my oatmeal so I had trail mix, greek yogurt, and a banana. I ate at 8:30 and was just getting hungry at noon. When I eat oatmeal, I am hungry a hour later. So annoying.

When I get to choose what levels to eat, leave me to my higher protein levels. Being educated, I realize this diet is not ideal for my body during endurance training.

*sigh*

Well, I will end up eating mac-n-cheese. It's easy, convenient, fast and cheap! I'll appreciate it tomorrow morning when my legs aren't dead.

    I am training for my first marathon and I am not stressed about my nutrition. I eat semi healthy and really no different than when I wasn't in training. I am in my 9th of 18 weeks and have a 15 mile run today and 7 mile run tomorrow. I had about 1700 calories yesterday distributed in a wide variety of carbs, protein and fats. I think like everything in life, you should do what works for you. There is advice and contrary advice about the same thing. Give yourself options and don't stress about it. I like chocolate so on my longer runs 12+ miles, I eat a few M & M's for an energy boost and drink a little water with Mio added. You might like something totally different.
Eating or drinking at the wrong times is much more critical for me than what I eat. Go with what works for you. Runners World magazine(runnersworld.com)has elite runners and sports nutritionists with good advice too.

CINERICIA 2/25/2012 8:11AM

    Argh. The numbers are enough to drive you crazy! My best advice is to focus on how you feel. If your endurance has been fine and you don't feel like your runs are suffering from more protein and less carbs--well, go with that.

Otherwise...I go with peanut butter and blueberries in my oatmeal. And butternut squash mac and cheese. (There's a recipe floating around Spark recipes.)

Who was it that said we are all an experiment of one? Do what works for you.

Luck and best wishes on your training.

    I was in the same situation until I started reducing my carbs and increasing both my protein (a little) and my fat intake (a lot). Your body is clearly telling you this already. Low-carb is working extremely well for me. It takes a few weeks to get used to but my energy level has already increased since I've lowered my carbs a little (to 100 grams/day 3 weeks ago) and then a lot more (to 50-70 grams/day 8 days ago) . If you'd like to know more take a look at my blog or read this blog:

There are also low-carb groups with lots of info on spark.

  Hi Savannah.......
Is there an actual recommended diet for runners? I seem to remember something about up to 50% of your diet being carbs before a long run and it had to be a certain number of hours before the race. Does this sound right? A protein combined with mac and cheese sounds like a good idea.
I am sure you will figure it all out.
Have a great weekend.

    Hmmmm....proteins help me stay satisfied, but you already know that one. Sometimes (maybe this sounds gross! Sorry if it does), but I add a soft boiled egg to my oatmeal. I'm an oatmeal eater from way back too. I use the steel cut oats. The rolled oats have the same affect on me as you . . . makes me hungry an hr. or two later.

Good luck! You can tackle this.

I do not stand for ANY discrimination!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

If you are judgmental, I have a problem with you. I do not stand for any type of discrimination.

Tonight a guy, N, friend of mine tried giving plasma. Another friend, H, which was there asked to talk to a staff member privately. After H talked to them, N could not donate because was bisexual.

I have a major issue with for many reasons.

He has never had sex with any other guy. Even if he did, it wouldn't matter. Did you know that more heterosexual individuals contract AIDS than homosexual? It's a statistic, making it a fact.

Besides I feel she think any orientation besides heterosexual is wrong. She is strong believer in God and Jesus. That is great. But, also, I feel she thinks she can judge people. No, you cannot. That is God's job.

If I was to put all that aside, she broke MY confidence and trust. I told her that my friend was bisexual months ago in confidence.

When N texted me about this tonight, my stomach sank. Sometimes you don't need to be there to know. You just know. I am sick to my stomach. I feel so bad for N. He doesn't deserve this treatment when all he has been nice to her.

So, let's repeat it. I do NOT stand for any kind of discrimination and nor should YOU. People that are open about their orientation deal with this crap everyday. It's crap! It's crap that right now many loving couples have to fight to get married.

Some debate that it says in the Bible it's wrong. Where? I'd love someone to show where it says in the Bible that we are to judge others. No, God will come one day and judge the heavens and hells. I, honestly, believe that God wants us to be decent and good people. Isn't that is what it is about?

Some of my good friends have a different orientation than me. I cannot imagine not having them in my life just because I was so ignorant and could not accept other people's difference.

Thank God I am not like that. Thank God my parents taught me better. Tonight I talked to my mom about it and I like how she put it best. It is like someone saying they can't be friends with me because I have blue eyes. How would YOU feel?

And, if you are still reading this and disagree with me. Fine. Do ME a favor. Unfriend me. Because I don't want to be YOUR friend. And, hit that red X in the upper corner.

    I so admire your support of your friend! The one thing I would very respectfully suggest is that you reconsider unfriending people who don't agree with you on this topic, but that really is up to you.

Tolerance has to come from both sides, or we end up divided, no middle. I pray your friend finds peace :).

I'm a devout Catholic, and practice my faith. If I unfriended everyone who opposes (and in many cases despises) my faith...I'd be a lonely girl. I choose to focus on what unites us, not what divides us.

My hot topic is abortion (don't worry, I won't go there!!!)...but I have many pro-choice friends. There are so many other things we can focus on and talk about.

    Judgemental is fine (ChrissyCurry is right. YOU are being judgmental with this post). However, what you DO with that judgement is where right and wrong come in. The fact that a friend betrayed a trust, that is WRONG.

A very good friend of mine is very religious. I am not gay, but I have friends and family members who are. I avoid discussing their lives so as not to make my friend uncomfortable, because of how I ASSUME she feels. Imagine my surprise when she rejoices to me that she has been invited to play piano at another gay friend's marriage. I tell her I'm so surprised she feels that way because of her religion, she says "There's too much love in the world. If its wrong, then its up to God to sort it out in the hereafter."

Amen.

    Through Christianity, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23). When Moses and the Israelites left Egypt, they became disobedient to God (with Godís conditional covenant) -- the people continually murmured, grumbled, and complained . . . this too, is sinful behavior. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone (John 8:7). There are many passages like Isaiah 59 that teach that sin -- any sin -- separates us from God.

The biggest command Christians should live for is to love our Lord God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and love our neighbor as ourselves. (Matt 22:37-39) God doesnít make mistakes and I believe there is a place for all of us to work together to share in the good news and salvation he offers.

I would feel I failed my friend terribly if something I said in error or confidence were to cause damage to their quality of life. I hope the day will come when we can live without hate for any of Godís children, whether we be straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered. Ė A Catalyst for Inclusive Community.

It really is totally sad that there are those out there who feel superior (at least that how I see being judgmental ... you feel superior) to others.

Hope the rest of your day was better. If it's any consolation today was definitely not a good one for me either. But this isn't about me.

    John 7:24 - these are Jesus's words: "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."
Also read 1 Corinthians 5 & 6, the entire chapters.

Yes, the Bible does say that we aren't to judge others but it also makes exceptions. We are to judge based on righteous judgment. Matter of fact, the Bible tells us not to associate with a "so-called brother" in Christ if he is living an immoral life, even to go so far as to kick him out of the church. See 1 Corinthians 5, the whole chapter

We all make judgments every day, about who we associate with, what to wear, what to eat, who we date, the list goes on and on.
Not to be rude or anything, but don't you think you are doing the same thing with this girl, H, that she is doing with your friend N? Can you see that?? You are saying that she's judgmental but YOU are judging HER as well. I'm not saying what she did was right. If you told her something in confidence, then she has no business repeating it. But it's HER RIGHT to feel how she feels, just like it's YOUR RIGHT to feel how you feel. Why judge her for HER feelings??

I am a believer in Jesus, a Christian. I do not "discriminate" against other people. However, the Bible does teach that certain things are wrong. And yes I know Jesus Himself hung out with immoral people but it was to CHANGE them, SAVE them, to bring them from darkness to the light. He didn't become one of them, He didn't excuse their behavior. He even told the woman who was accused of adultery to go and sin no more!!

There's so much more than what I can post here. I'm definitely not going to get into a debate of homosexuality versus heterosexuality and all that. I just wanted to say that each person is entitled to his/her opinion, just like you are. Not every person is going to agree with your viewpoints 100% of the time, and if you don't want to be "friends" with someone just because they don't share your point of view, that is your right and I won't judge you for it. So I did what you asked by "unfriending" you but felt like I needed to respond. You are free to unfriend me as well.

    Have you seen the commercial with people wearing t-shirts that say "I will not stand for ______________" and fill in the blank with words like discrimination, bigotry, insensitivity, you get the idea and at the end of the commercial they all sit down.
I totally agree with you the H had no reason to say anything about N because all blood donations are routinely screened now for all sorts of things. I can't donate because I lived in Europe in the 80's and there might be a chance that I came in contact with mad cow disease. I am sorry you were hurt by a friend betraying your confidence.

even with all the progress we've made in that area.

But ALL medical donations of ANY kind from ANYONE
should be screened. First because not everyone even knows if they have a disease, because they don't get tested ...because they are afraid to find out. And second, because people lie.

New Trainer, Day 1

Monday, February 20, 2012

In case you were wondering...

My new trainer is pretty awesome! She gave me lots of praise and no insults. In fact, there was a part that I could tell I wasn't doing it quite right. When she gave me feedback and I was able to do it better, she smiled. Which, in turn, made me feel good about me. emoticon

My last trainer was in favor of 20 reps. When I lift, I tend to stick to 3 set of 12. My new trainer had me do sets of 12.

I even have achievable homework assignment.

I really like the feedback she gave me about my posture. My back has been hurting lastly and not sure why. Kinda suspected posture issues but it's not like I can walk next to a mirror and figure it out myself.

I have a good feeling about this.. sometimes you just know that this is just way better.

..so now you know about my new trainer.
