Would You Rather? - Running


So, I didn't prepare to do the usual WIAW post this week so I thought I'd do a fun little Would You Rather Linkup instead to fill the void.

I'm back from being away at my parents over the New Year and its been a while since I posted. So, I'm linking up with Cori over at Olive to Run, for a Would You Rather post.

I think these types of things are always fun to do and what better when its fitness/running related?! So lets get to it shall we..

#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
Not such a difficult one. I would actually hate both.. but I would rather run in a Thunderstorm. I HATE the cold with a passion and I'm terrified of slipping on snow and breaking something.. Wimp!

#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
Mouth.  By far. I've heard its supposed to be WAY better to breathe through your nose(if someone knows if this is true, let me know). I've tried breathing through my nose.. and I struggle SO much.. I feel as though I'm not getting enough oxygen into my lungs. It's horrible.

#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
SQUATS! Core/Abs is my weakest and I don't enjoy doing any sort of exercises. I always end up being SO sore afterwards. But I'm working on it.. Maybe if my core wasn't so weak, I might enjoy crunches more than squats.. who knows?

#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
Baked goods/Dessert for sure. I actually normally skip having a starter when I'm at a restaurant, we normally have our main course and a dessert. I have a bit of a sweet tooth.. So Dessert > Starter.

#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
Round the same block for an hour. I hated the treadmill when I used to use it at the gym and I actually found it harder than running outside.. which everyone always says the opposite to.

#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
Headache. I still get side stitches occasionally on my run.. and they can be quite painful.. almost to the point where I have to stop running. I think a headache is much more manageable to run with.

#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
On a day off, of course. If I'm taking a day off work, I'd rather just have that whole day to just chill out and relax as that's the whole reason why I take the day off in the first place.

#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
I'd imagine that both of them would be pretty fun, but I think that it would be pretty darn cool to be able to actually run the event.

#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Tough One.. but I think I'm gonna have to say running shoes. They're a pretty important choice for running and I don't just want any old running shoe. I want good ones to support and help with my running.

#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
I've never done either. So I'm just gonna pick a Triathlon as they sound pretty fun.

Please, go on over and check out Cori's blog and the others that have linked up. :)

Until Next Time!
