Calling my name.

Mr. Treadmill stared at me all morning long.  Taunting me saying, "Think of how much fun we could have together running the hills of Boston while watching the Biggest Loser."

I knew better and reminded myself the importance of RECOVERY DAYS.  No use doing a killer workout and then not letting your muscles rebuild themselves.   Recovery is just as important as our workouts.  I know my body needs one rest day a week...remember, everyone is different.

It's all about compromise people.  So instead of running I foam rolled like a demon and then spent some quality time on the treadmill by working on my running journal and inspiration board while watching Biggest Loser on Hulu.

This is how to make a relationship work.  I also finished off my chocolate milk straight from the jug while I worked.

FYI Christmas Pj's, a birds nest for hair and a jacket that you have worn 574 times and yet to wash, is the cool thing to do.  That is how you score a hot husband......um, how did I get him?Oh yeah, I have a sweet spirit.

Lunch was protein and nutrient packed.  Day 2 of upping my protein is right on track.  Billy is watching his words because he knows I could take him now with all this body building protein.

Tuna galore, spinach, guac, cheese, red onions, black beans and corn.  It was a fiesta plus I added half a bottle of salsa on afterwards.  I may have stolen it from my mom's food storage, don't tell her k.  Yes, that is a family sized serving bowl.  It's normal.

IMG_4180.JPG

We are off to church followed by family dinner at the sister's house.  I am craving children time.  Weird, I know, but I haven't been around kids for a while and I feel like we think a lot alike....(ie candy, movies like Tangled, hide and go seek in the dark, trampoline love and no desire to brush my hair).  Why do I have to be 25?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you haven't told me your birthday on a post that I did a few months ago asking for your birthdate and you want to do so I can do a shout out for you because birthday's are the bomb then tell me what your bday is in the comments?

What are your childlike characteristics?

I want to do an ask me anything series so if you have any questions ask away in the comments........

I love that you spent quality time with your treadmill today. You are the cutest, Janae!

Hmm, my child like characteristics would be my love for Disney and my complete lack of patience. I can't stand to wait for anything! Including my birthday, which is 11/14.

Good job on taking your rest day. I always struggle with wanting to run on my scheduled rest days and not wanting to run on my scheduled days. Maybe I'm just contrary.

my bday is august 22! my childlike characteristics would definitely include my love for all disney movies (did I mention i worked at the disney store for a year while I was in college?), my un-quench-able hunger for pb & j sandwiches, and love of high-heels (remember the plastic ones you could use with your dress up clothes?).

good job on resting! I did and easy-peasy run today for 20 minutes just to loosen my muscles up, I did 12 yesterday (and it went great!) but I'm sore. I need to get a foam roller. NEED!

I love that you are "working" on the treadmill. Classic,Janae.

My birthday is May 24 :)

Honestly, my childlike characteristics come out when I tell stories because I tend to get WAY to excited about really dumb things!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:23 PM , Anonymous Carin said...

i am childlike in that i have no sense of moderation...if a little is good (of anything), more must be better! needless to say, i definitely have had to learn the value of rest days.

How do you motivate yourself to run so much? =D

My birthday is April 20th!

Also, my daughter came up and asked me if that picture of you was me.. never mind that we don't even own a treadmill.

I like to throw temper tantrums if I don't get my way and I freakishly love all things Disney. Movies.. the parks.. the races. If I could live in Disney I would.

Hah, glad to see you got non-running bonding time in with your treadmill. I love being around kids, and I work as a summer camp counselor. I can't believe I get paid to play and run around with kids all day, then have campfires and eat s'mores with them!

I'd like to know: What are your long-term running goals for the next few years?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:26 PM , Anonymous SueM said...

you eat so many vegetables and fruit - don't you ever have any "issues" (as in - bathroom issues?)
sorry if it's TMI - but you said to ask questions :-)

I like to color. :)

U have the best hait. What products do u use??

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:30 PM , Blogger XLMIC said...

I love how you're just hanging out on the treadmill…hilarious! It must be love :)

Childlike? Moi? Why do you think I married a guy w/ 6 kids and then had 4 more? Lol. I would much rather goof around all day than do housework or take a shower. And pancakes for lunch…right this moment. Also, I just don't get why people are mean. I don't get racism or bigotry. And I always fight bedtime.

At February 20, 2011 at 3:39 PM , Blogger kldennison said...

Childlike characteristics- I pout, have tantrums, when I need to eat I need to do it right then, and I fight naps and sleep. Bday is July 31. My question is when you taper before a race, how do you keep from going nuts?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:41 PM , Blogger Mary (How To Not Be...) said...

My birthday is Sept. 21!

I think my most childlike characteristic is my voice. I have to make a point to lower my voice when I'm on the phone so I sound like I'm over 12 years old.

Also, I am interested to learn a little more about your running history. I know you've been running since you were young, but were you always significantly faster than the average rec. runner? Were you ever on any teams/run competitively?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:45 PM , Blogger Zaneta said...

I can't remember if i told you my birthday or not... but its July 14th! :)

The salad bowl creation looks/sounds delicious--I'm going to have to try and recreate that!

I often catch myself wearing the same clothes over and over again on my blog--oops!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 3:54 PM , OpenID teachprayrun said...

You are too hilarious ! I love the fact that you hang out on the treadmill even if you're not running on it . Too freaking cute!
I'm pretty much like a kid all the time- when you teach second graders and have one in your home- well, no choice. I listen to teeny bopper music which makes my hubby just roll his eyes, but I know my daughter loves it! I also love watching some of the Disney shows, like Phineaus and Ferb- if you haven't caught it= hil-ar-ous!!! My daughter and I just giggle all the time at it:)
What kind of running shoes do you wear? Do you recommend any particular kind? And do wear a GPS watch to run with (outdoors)? I'm aging the idea of getting one, but I may need to take out a loan from the bank for one- any recs on those?

Childlike: still love to color.
Still like kraft Mac n cheese!!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:01 PM , Anonymous Bess@Bess Be Fit said...

hmmm...childlike characteristics...I still stomp my foot sometimes (temper tantrum alert!) and I also get grouchy when I am hungry or need a nap like a little baby.

I'm so proud that you listen to your body and take days off when you need them! I had to do that today...I was exhausted from this week so I am definitely relaxing today! I'm sure your treadmill didn't feel too neglected since you still hung out with it :)

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:01 PM , Blogger Mary (How To Not Be...) said...

oh yea I just remembered another ? I had... what's the current status of your Vibrams? Do you still run in them?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:02 PM , Anonymous Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) said...

Aww Janae you are SO ADORABLE!! And write it down now and commit it to memory: Sept 2nd. Most important day of the year after Dec 25th (and Feb 13th of course! :P)

I AM a child mentally. The word balls cracks me up. Apparently I'm an 8 year old boy. And trust me, not only did I not brush my hair this morning, but I also wore my PJ's to church. Yes.

Question: Were you always a speed demon? How did you get to Speedyville? What are you post-Boston running plans? Intrigued:)

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:04 PM , Blogger Rachelle Wardle said...

My Birthday is March 17th, St. Patricks Day. woot woot!! So sad to leave the 19-24 racing age group. :(

I am a total child. I literally am giddy when I visit my sisters 1st grade class and I can only come in small doses because I wind the 6 year olds up to much.

I want to know if you will run with me and teach me to be as fast as you? And also what your future running goals are?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:07 PM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

I think my childlike characteristic is that when I get really excited I like to dance around and sing about it. It freaks Mike out, but that makes it way more fun!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:14 PM , Anonymous Corey @ the runners cookie said...

You are adorable sitting on your treadmill :) Good for you for knowing when you need a rest day. Hanging out with kids is SO much fun - it makes me sad that my cousins live so far away and I can't see them often. Have a great family dinner!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:17 PM , Anonymous Nicole @ Of Cookies and Carrots said...

I'm just as obsessed with disney movies as most 5 year olds... And I love cookies. Actually I prefer baking them to eating them (I know, what's wrong with me) but still. :)

My bday is October 19th!!! :)

also, i went to the mall yesterday and the only two things I bought were my favorite oatmeal and preordered tangled at the disney store. pretty much me in a nutshell ;)

Props to you for denying the treadmill--you told him that you had a date planned for tomorrow anyway right?! :) My b'day is 11/23 :)

?'s: Do you warm-up prior to running? if so, what is your routine? And, what key phrase do you tell yourself on hill days and on speed days?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:23 PM , Blogger Ashton + Brian said...

Haha and you are still gorgeous. Billy is a lucky man! My bday is Sept 10! And be honest...do you ever sleep on that treadmill? And do you have any big event you will be focused on AFTER Boston? Those are my question for you!

My b-day is April 6th =)

And I want a pig pillow pet for my birthday. Pretty sure that makes me seven years old =)

Questions: I LOVE to run - but when I trained hard I kept getting injured. What did you do while you were coming back from your knee injury, and what sorts of things do you do NOW to prevent injuries from your level of milage?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:43 PM , Anonymous Paula @ Eat: Watch: Run said...

Me, Prince, and Anna Kournikova are June 7! :-)

What fuel do you bring on your outside runs...like the one a few days ago when Billy dropped you off 15 miles from home?

I still can't find the right fuel for me.

 
At February 20, 2011 at 4:43 PM , Blogger Cari said...

I know you already did a post about Vibrams, but I would love a more in depth post about how often you train with them and if you think they are beneficial to running form.

I also want to know what you do for your warm up and please please please tell us your super secret and obviously VERY successful mantras. I need something besides "I hate hills"!!!

July 7th.

Question: what distances other than the marathon can you see yourself running competitively?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 5:01 PM , Blogger Alyssa said...

I love how you missed your treadmill so much you sat on it. You are hilarious. Great job with the run and with your protein! I am trying to force myself to take a second rest day tomorrow because I raced today and I KNOW my body needs it - why is resting so hard? My birthday is June 19th, I'll be 28 but feels more like 7. I get super excited and jump up and down over the tiniest thing, like my friend bringing really yummy Wawa mints to lunch. I'm trying to think of a question for ya!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 5:03 PM , Blogger Nicole said...

My birthday is October 26.
How are you so crazy fast? Have you always been pretty fast or have you gotten considerably faster since you started running?
And do you still wear your Vibrams and how often?

 
At February 20, 2011 at 5:04 PM , Blogger Tara said...

My birthday is July 23rd.

I still get giggly like a kid and I love it. The more exicted I am about something the more high pitched I get. I get grouchy and not very productive when I'm tired/hungry.

What do you eat in the mornings before you run? I'm always afraid that I'll get sick because I've eaten too much or get light headed because I haven't eaten enough. It's been a huge factor in me NOT running in the mornings and I wish I could!

 
At February 20, 2011 at 5:13 PM , Anonymous kate said...

rest days are the bomb cuz they make your next run even better!! thats like exactly my ideal salad that I make most days during the week, salsa and avocado= heaven!
my question: do you ever slip back into the feelings of needing to lose weight or exercising to get rid of food guilt? or on another note do you ever get self conscious of being thin?
have a fabulous night with your fam!!!

At February 20, 2011 at 5:18 PM , Blogger Lauren said...

I love your blog! I have started training for a half marathon and I was wondering what you eat before a long run ( yours are 18 miles, mine are more like 9-12) that does not give you cramps right in the middle and make you wish you were crawling instead of running...

 
At February 20, 2011 at 5:20 PM , Blogger Caitlin said...

Good job on the rest day and the protein! And perfect choice on the chocolate milk =). My b-day's not until July 29th but I'm still excited... it'll be 20 woo hoo!! My question is how do I get to be just like you? Also, what kind of fuel do you use when your on your long runs? Can you talk a little pre/during/post long run nutrition?
Thanks!

Wanted to tell you that I thought about you today...that sounds weird...right?! But I did the Myrtle Beach Half Marathon this weekend and there was a marathon too. For the first time since they have had the race (14 years) a woman won the marathon!!! She did it in under 3 hours...I can't remember her exact time...she beat the man by like 3 minutes!! I thought of you because you will run Boston in under 3 hours! And one day you will win a Marathon and beat the boys too! :)

My birthday is August 31 and very excited for the birthday shout out :)

I act like a child with my ice cream toppings, movie/tv watching and the books I read. I love reading children's books!

A question I have is: Do you have any days you don't want to run? and if so how do you get the motivation to do it?

My birthday just passed-January 26.

It might be said that I became an elementary school teacher just so I could burst into cheesy songs at all hours and blame it on doing it "for the kids!"

My Childlike quality is the love of singing my regular sentences to my hubby. He is amused.

My Bday is oct. 29th.

Have you thought about a running coach and sponsor? I know this costs money.
I am proud of what you have accomplished on your own.

Janae-

I'm a first-time commenter and just want to tell you how much I LOVE your blog! You are adorable :)

You talk a lot about food and nutrition but I'm wondering about your fluid intake and need tips on how to increase my fluid intake. This is my struggle. I don't know why this is so hard for me?! Also, do you ever plan to run an ultra?

i wear my sweatshirt jackets waaay too much before washing them. thats what a clean tshirt underneath is for, right?!

lately i've been taking naps every day i dont work. love them! i also burst into song. and sometimes tears. human!

hopefully this isnt too person, and if so, disregard...do you have any fear foods? do you ever have food or exercise guilt, and if so, what do you say to yourself to get through? i've come a long way w/ all this, just like you (although i'm nowhere close to your athleticism!), but was just a little curious; i still have my days...
fun one...whats your favorite frosting flavor?

March 28!

And I'm still childlike in that I still like kids movies and Fairly Odd Parents! And I hate brushing my teeth, I'll sit around for the longest time just trying to get the motivation to brush them.

Questions:
What kind of camera do you use? (I'm still tossing around ideas of buying a new one, since my canon powershot decided to kick the bucket so I'm using a crappy kodak easyshare)
Do you listen to music while you run? If so, what do you listen to?

The weather has been nice here so my poor treadmill has turned into a clothes rack for all the laundry to hang dry on....

Good for you for sticking to your rest day!! Recovery IS just as important as our workouts! It has maybe taken me awhile to learn that but I'm really at peace on my rest days now! Perhaps because I'm too busy to actually rest....ha!

Childlike characteristics......Umm I end up in torrents of laughter during church if one of the hymns mentions the word breast or ass (believe it or not there are A LOT of hymns that include these words)-my mom seriously still gives me the death glare down the pew and I'm 35....

I will enjoy this "ask anything" segment! I have often thought of things I would like to ask you. I will have to write them down when they pop into my head again as I'm having a total mental block right now!

Have a great night with the kiddos:)

I so agree with you on recovery days. Although I'm not a marathon runner like you, I do rest one day per week to give the muscles time to rebuild themselves. Otherwise one will be prone to injury.

That salad looks incredible, and I love your love of rest days! Mine is tomorrow and I cannot WAIT! Getting a massage and taking myself out on a breakfast date.. woohoo! :D

Childlike traits...oh boy.
- Peanut butter, Nutella, and sprinkles on EVERYTHING.
- Love of swing-sets, sandpits, and trampolines.
- Disney movies/music pretty much non-stop.
- Drinking milk out of the carton... especially if it's strawberry, banana or chocolate.
- An alarming disregard for personal hygiene... I practically have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the shower some days.
- All the gross stuff... biting my nails, using my sleeve as a tissue, picking scabs...

At February 21, 2011 at 6:47 AM , OpenID legallybalanced said...

Rest days may be dull but just think about how great your run will be tomorrow. My runs are always best after a rest day. As far as my childlike tendencies go there are too many to list. I force people around me to watch Disney movies, eat with my hands, can't sit still, and sing constantly. I actually try to be more "childlike" when I work out. Think about it, when kids run do they care about calories burned or how their thighs look?? Nope, they run cause it is fun! So now when I'm stressing over my runs or getting bored I make airplane wings with my hands (I get some strange looks at the gym). Sounds silly but it totally works.

I love being with kids, too! I love kids movies and will always act like a complete dork with my cousins. We sing, dance, jump on the trampoline, make yummy food together, eat candy, pretty much anything you could think of. Disney is one of my favorite places so I think that can make me as childlike as well!
My question for you is how did you come to LOVE running so much? I run because it is good for me and I love going to fun races. I don't actually like running though, the feeling of accomplishment afterward yes but not the actual act of running no. You are such an inspiration, I think of you sometimes when I'm running and thinking negatively. I think Janae runs marathons on treadmills for fun!

Hi there girly! My birthday is 10/28.

My biggest childlike characteristic is my sense of humor. I laugh at anything. It could be as corny or cheesy as possible!

I have a couple questions for you I've been wanting to ask.

As I'm uping my miles, I notice I have had more calf cramps during the end of long runs. I've read this can be dehydration or electrolyte embalance. Do you ever get these during your long runs? What do you do for them? Does glutamine help you with this?

How is the glutamine working?

What do you think about the chocolate milk as "recovery" drink? I tried it for the first time last week. Not sure if it made a huge difference but it sure tasted good!

With all the training you do, do you ever get burnt out?

I love birthdays too! I am a kid at heart because my birthday isn't till May 7th and I am already reminding people about it! Oh, and the fact that I love to color and I laugh uncontrollably when someone farts!
