Been a long time since I ate a bug!

Sunday, June 06, 2010

It's been so long since I spent a lot of time running outdoors that I completely forgot about the first rule of summer running in the South: You can breathe through your mouth...but keep your front teeth together. Ottherwise, at some point you are bound to suck in a bug.

Tonight, I remembered.

And I won't be forgetting again any time soon.

So in other news, yesterday I ran 5.7 miles on the treadmill. With 4 weeks to the Peachtree (10K), I believe this was a reasonable length run. Of course, it was in the cool of my air-conditioned basement....while tonight's 3 mile bug-eating extravaganza was outdoors. But I'm feeling better about the race than I did last week, when I pooped out at the 5 mile mark.

    I think you were just running so fast that the bug couldn't outrun you! Way to go on your run, it sounds like you are ramping up perfectly.

    Wonder how many calories it had...

    And hey, they have protein!

    Woohoo on the distance! You'll do great.

    The bug should add protein to your daily count.
    Congratulations on such great progress!

    I have the same problem along the river trails I ride on - you have to cover your mouth or you get an unwanted protein lunch!

    Bugs are mostly protein.

    You did well on getting out there and running!
