GIVEAWAY

Speed Day Monday: I love doing my speed day on Monday because my legs are screaming for a run after a rest day:) It was hard peeling myself out of bed though...wouldn't that be awesome if there was a magic pill that made getting up in the morning feel good and super easy?  My dad is an inventor...I will tell him to get working on making that asap.

Today I did 13.1 miles, 1% incline  in 1:29:21.....that is 3 minutes faster than last week and I feel pretty good about it.  I guess speed training and hill workouts are helping!

photo-12.jpgphoto-13.jpg

I did mile repeats throughout the first hour of the run (anywhere between 6:10-6:45) with 800's at a slower pace (anywhere between 7:00-7:24). For the last part I ran at a 7:01 pace....I do need to work on some negative splits though.

Call me a weirdo but I love the end of a workout where I feel like I am going to puke.  I know that I pushed myself past what I thought possible.  What should my goal be for my 1/2 marathon in 19 days?

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

Basically, I am obsessed with you guys and I want to give you a lil sometin sometin but we are poor so I can't give you a treadmill or a kitchenaid.....fast forward 4 years until Billy is done with law school and my giveaways will be off the hook.

Boys, I am sorry it is super girly but you can always enter and give it to your wife/mom/gf/sister/random person on the street if you win.

Giveaway includes 2 bottles of delicious lotion and lip gloss from Bath and Body Works, Swedish Fish, a reusable plastic hot chocolate thingee (I use mine 14 times a day, obsessed),  sunglasses (I have a twinner pair), CHOCOLATES, and a signed picture of Billy and I!

To Enter:

1.  You have to be a follower (my mom looks at how many followers I have every day and I want her to think I am really cool).

2.  Tell me your most favoritest distance to run or your favorite workout ever.  If you don't like working out tell me your favorite candy?

3.  Extra entry: link it on your blog and let me know in a separate comment.

My favorite workout ever is when I get to go spinning with my sister. We went a few times this summer in NYC, and I loved working out with her. I also love swimming!

im a follower. i need lotion bad. this winter is making me all dry haha.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:34 PM , Blogger Spencer Family said...

Favorite distance is the half marathon. Though I've only run it twice. I love that it's hard but yet totally doable and you don't feel wiped out after. Oh and candy? Reeses PB Cups. Though I ate almost an entire box of Mike & Ikes today. I was channeling my inner HRG--now I just need to put in some serious miles on the treadmill. :)

I was so close to being the first comment! Is Swede fish candy? i thought it was actually fish? Now I am confused!

Fav workout-hills. I love hills because you feel like a ROCKSTAR when you overcome it.

Will you send me something if I win? i live kinda far away....

Aim for 1.24-1.26! You can do it!!

Speed Demon!

My favorite mileage so far I think is 5-6 I love my longer runs, because I can now get to Interlaken and some really gorgeous roads to run along from my place!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:37 PM , Blogger Rose said...

My favorite distance is 5 miles, which sounds odd, but it's the length of this amazing trail loop by my office, with a wicked hill (I call it the Death Hill) right in the middle, and amazing scenery, and oh man, it's a loop that makes me want to take running back to middle school and get it pregnant.

My favourite workout is long runs, not always while I am doing them but it feels so good after! Especially the sense of accomplishment! I am training for my 3rd half marathon and it is definitely my favourite distance.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK!!!

My favorite distance so far has been 10.9 :D

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:38 PM , Blogger Geneviève said...

I follow you!! My favourite distance to run is 10km - long enough so you don't feel the need to sprint and feel like you're dying, but short enough to feel great and can be done even when pressed for time! :)

my favorite distance to run is probably seven miles, it can easily be run in an hour, so it fits nicely into a busy schedule

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:43 PM , Blogger middleagedrunner said...

My favorite distance.
2 answers.
1: ANY distance that I can run right now after having a scary bad back.
2: On a normal day? 8 miles. Perrrrrfect.

I think it is more fun to tell you my favourite candy: NIBS! (Are Nibs Canadian?! I am not sure, so they little licorice bits cut into chunks and they are delicious).

I follow you
and my favorite distance is 4 miles.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:44 PM , Blogger SMACK said...

I'm a follower through Google Reader! My favorite runs are the mid- to longish distance ones, right in the 12-16 mile range. I've been running for years, but it still usually takes a few miles for me to get in the groove. Once everything clicks, though, there is nothing better than settling in and just letting myself move.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:45 PM , Blogger Elly said...

My favorite distance right now is the half marathon! I just ran another one on Saturday and it is very motivating!!

I am following you! My favorite distance is 26.2! Second favorite is 5k though--totally opposite I know, but they each have their own pros/cons!

My favorite workout is definitely anything speedwork related--I love going FAST....

Despise hill workouts though!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:46 PM , Blogger Kate said...

I think we have mental telepathy or something. I was just sitting here reading everyone's comments on my blogs from my marathon and was getting all emotional at how sweet everyone out there is (including you of course). I was thinking, hmm, I should put together some sort of giveaway, on me, to show my readers how much I love and appreciate them! Then I popped onto your blog and saw this. Great minds think alike, Janae!

You know I follow!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:46 PM , Blogger The Jogger Blogger said...

Right now I don't have a favorite distance and I am a pretty new runner....

I can't get enough of Peanut Butter Cups, though. Or really anything with sugar, for that matter! :)

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:46 PM , Blogger Kate said...

Considering the high I am still on from yesterday's race, I'll have to say the marathon, although the 10k is a fun, fast distance too!

My favorite distance is 8 miles and favorite candy, M&Ms.

At February 7, 2011 at 4:47 PM , Blogger Kate said...

My favorite candy, tropical skittles, dark chocolate, airheads, tootsie pops (but they aren't vegan so I don't 'em anymore), starburst, and the list goes on and on. :)

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:48 PM , Blogger Kristin @NyceLife said...

I follow you already! Right now I am loving running a mile or mile and a half on the TM before and after a hard spin class (so 2-3 miles total)- feels like I really worked without the pain my old knees get if I do over 5 miles. I also LOVE summer runs when your skin is burning hot and you don't think you have any more sweat to give, ah I love summer!! Will post this to my blog too :)

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:48 PM , Anonymous Laura Mooney said...

I follow you:) I REALLy love to spin and it gives me the best exercise high. I took two spin classes back to back on Saturday and I think that might be my favorite workout ever.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:48 PM , Anonymous Kelley said...

I love half marathons. Just enough of a challenge to make me work for it, but I don't feel dead at the end.

I'm obsessed with Spin Classes. I'm am also equally obsessed with Reese's peanut butter cups, particularly the holiday ones with an increased peanut butter to chocolate ratio.

Awesome work on your run!!! Since I'm preggo with baby #3 right now my fab distance is 5 miles. After that I am peeing myself unless I ca find a place to use the bathroom:). When not knocked up I like an 8 mile run. Just the right distance because I can get it done in an hour and that doesn't take too much time away from the fam. I am a follower of course, love your blog!!!!

You are the sweetest thing ever. If I win you can hand deliver the goods to me when you finally come back to Cali :)

My fav is the Half - I've always thought I'd love the 15K distance but I've never done it :( Maybe that should be my next life goal.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:50 PM , Blogger Meghan said...

I already follow you :)

I like running about 8 miles - it feels longer than normal and so I really feel like I accomplished something, but then it also doesn't take as much time as 11 or 12. Maybe one day my 11 or 12 will feel like 8!!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 4:50 PM , Blogger Jen said...

It's hard to fathom running that fast ever. You are a machine!
My favorite distance is probably a half marathon. It still feels like it's hard and an accomplishment, but it doesn't take so long to recover from. (At least for me!)
And I am a follower!

my favorite is a weird one - I once ran an 8k and it was perfect! I used to love averaging 12-13k once a week or so... and I'm working on getting back up to that!

my favorite workout - tennis! skiing! step!

my favorite candy is anything peanut butter + chocolate, and anything gummi!

My favorite distance is the long run. Call me crazy, but I like the anticipation, the preparation and the feeling afterwards. I really like the long miles too. My favorite distance to race is the marathon. :)

You rocked this workout Janae. You beat my PR by almost 2 minutes. If I was a jealous person then I'd be jealous but instead I'm just happy for you and your awesomeness. I am a follower. My favorite distance is 13.1 probably. Not sure I really know yet though.

This is awesome! I think personal giveaways are so meaningful and fun! (I have a chocolate giveaway tomorrow!) I ran 8 miles today and felt like a million bucks. I think 8-10 is a great distance for me which is amazing considering it used to seem really far to run just 3!

I love running a 10k distance. I always find the first few miles of any race brutal so 5k's just feel like a struggle the whole time. There's something about hitting mile 4 that feels great and then smooth sailing in past mile 6! I also loooove gummy peaches, skittles, and tootsie rolls after working out!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:05 PM , Blogger Julia said...

my favorite distance is 10 mile to a half marathon. I seriously love distance...I feel so good after and it feels good to know that I have worked hard enough to be able to run that far...I get in some serious me time and just time away from everything else to push myself to the limit but feel good and relaxed after. Plus...I can tell I am getting better because I am able to run these distances faster and faster. My favorite workout is when I push myself throughout but still have the energy to have my fastest miles at the end of a run...leaves me feeling confident and strong and just itching for my next run :)

I like to run around 8 miles when I'm looking to go for a nice run. I like running a half marathon competitively, and as for candy I love heath bars, but really anything with sugar works...I should try to run while eating heath bars. That could be delicious.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Blogger Angela said...

I follow you :-D YAY!

I have only run 1 half. In my training runs I seem to hit my groove after 6 miles or so, so maybe the 10k is my favorite.

I love sour patch kids.

I want to win this, because having a signed picture of you would be fun! HAHA (and stalkerish) but I could say you are my celeb friend :-D

Happy birthday week! I like running about 10 miles. There aren't many 10 mile races so I just do a couple of those on my own each week. thanks for offering the giveaway!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Blogger Kimberly said...

My fave distance to run is, well, any. Ha! Nah - I think I'll go with 8 miles. It's far enough that I feel like I've done something but I can get it in before work.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Blogger Meg said...

I've fallen in love with two things: running five miles and doing bricks. I love biking first and then running to push my body. Technically it's to prepare for triathlons, but it's also just such a crazy test. The first time I did it I thought I might die, and now I can push harder and run faster and it's so cool to see how the body adjusts over time. And running five miles has become a new obsession. I have a five mile race in March and I've been trying to improve my time. It started with getting my body to run five miles without stopping, and now it's a test to see how fast I can do it. Really, my favorite workout is anytime I'm preparing for a race. I love it.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Blogger winstead family said...

WOW 1:29...insane! ok, your goal in 19 days should be to take 3 more minutes off. is that even possible? i mean, you ran it 3 minutes faster today that you did a week ago...so you'd have 19 days to take off 3 more mins. my race is sunday and i'm hoping for a 2:00. :)

favorite distance? a nice SLOW long run...about 10-11 miles. my brain starts beating me up when i have to speed up. working on that mental stuff though. LOVE the giveaway! so cute!

I love to run the half marathon distance, but the marathon rocked as well (except the last few miles which were hell).
Perfect daily runs when I'm busy should be between 6-8 to make me feel like I've really done something.

My favorite distance is probably 13.1. Long enough to be a challenge but short enough to not cause major damage :) That being said, I love marathons too.

I LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs at Easter. They are hard shelled milk chocolate. So good. Easter candy is my worst nemesis.

I'm a follower now! I found you blog about 2 weeks ago and have been secretly stalking you ever since. =)

I don't run. But I love to do anything on the Wii that makes you burn calories. Zumba, Biggest Loser, & Just Dance 2! It works for me!

I'd just like to add that my favorite candy is dark chocolate candy! YUM! =)

Hi Hungry Runner Girl's mom! I follow your daughter because she is awesome and encourages me to go run 26 miles on a treadmill after eating Swedish fish and a bag of Skittles. Only to follow said run with a salad eaten out of the spinach container from Costco. Plus, I can now do my makeup in 3 minutes thanks to her awesome video! I like to pick a distance to run then go out and double it. HRG style.

my favorite run of all time is one on a trail by my house in Colorado. it turns out to be about 8 miles i think and it's seriously SO gorgeous that you don't even realize how far you've gone. i could run it over and over!!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:31 PM , Blogger kldennison said...

Ok, your goal for the 13.1 coming up? 1:27.43. Yep. I believe in YOU! You can do! How I have no clue, your like amazing and now that I know your dad is an inventor I'm pretty sure he invented some sort of Run Fast Pill and gave it to you as a small child. You're a science project!!!!! All the more reason to totally want the autographed photo! (Don't think I'm crazy or a stalker or anything....I'm a nice stalker. Honest.)

At February 7, 2011 at 5:37 PM , Blogger 5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Oh yeah, my favorite workout is not 1 mile repeats, although I think I will give it a try soon.

My favorite workout is 8x400yd hill repeats. There is this scenic drive called 5 Mile Drive in Tacoma, WA and I found a beautiful hill that was 1/4 mile long with a view of the Puget Sound and trees and just God's handy work all around. There was no way to be miserable running hill repeats there. I would sprint up and jog down as many times as I could before my bootie would fall off. I miss it there. I would give anything to be able to go there tomorrow, even in the pouring rain, to run hill repeats. Sigh.

I'm a follower. And a huge fan. In case you didn't know, this weekend I gave you an official awesome award on my blog. Seriously. I'm licensed to do these things. :)

So far, my favorite distance to run is a half marathon. I have never been so speedy or grinning so hard than at my last half (Niagara Falls in October). When I'm not running, my other favorite workout is p90x (is that cheating, because it's a whole set of videos? If I had to pick just one of the series I'd be forced to say ab ripper). My favorite candy is fuzzy peaches, but chocolate is really my favorite thing in life. I'm eating ovations (dark chocolate mint sticks) right now :)

You're so awesome to provide your followers with a giveaway! Thanks!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:43 PM , Blogger Pam said...

My favorite training run is a 5.25-mile route around my house. But my favorite race distance is 13.1. 5Ks are fun, but it takes longer to drive to one than it actually takes to run one! I've never run a 10K. And marathons? No more for me thanks! One and done!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:43 PM , Blogger Kassie said...

Hi, my name is Sheanna, and I'm a loyal stalker...Errr...Follower.

My favorite workout is the core workout in the P90X line of workouts with the cardio in the morning. THe core makes my guts feel like they're secure if that makes sense.

If I HAD a blog, I would link back to yours, but I don't because I sucked at blogging (great writer, bad at keeping up with it and taking pics).

Been waiting for this giveaway all day!!!!

I would also tell you my favorite candy, but I just can't pick!!

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:45 PM , Blogger XLMIC said...

I follow you like a shadow on a sunny day ;-)

My favorite workout ever was a rowing workout… 3x20 minutes@ anaerobic threshold w/ 5 min super easy in between. Favorite running workout… 4x1/2-mile hill repeats in the hilly park near my house (that or the 1 hour stadium extravaganza). I can't do any of that now! :P

And your readership is off the charts! Wow!

Favorite candy: for super bowl sunday one of my friends brought these chocolate covered acai berries from costco. If it were physically possible to marry a candy, this would be the one. Or swedish fish - they are also very handsome, so I haven't entirely decided =)

Favorite distance to race: 5k. I love that it's short enough basically sprint the whole thing.

Favorite workout: mile repeats! And sprint work - they hurt so good!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:50 PM , Blogger BigHappyFamily said...

My favorite workout totally varies. I feel like I know what I need to get to the happy place, and I do it. Right now I am doing the long runs on Saturday with a training group (to prepare for the second race of my life) ... never done that, really liking it. I love the solitude of running alone after a busy day of interacting. I love to swim, but only when the lap lane is empty, and the running fitness really translates well to the water for me. I like some cardio kickbox when I am feeling fiesty. And I love me some clubbin cardio dance class when I am feeling lazy, and I know at a minimum I will get a good core workout laughing at myself in the mirror.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:50 PM , Blogger Allyssa said...

I'm hoping my favorite distance will be a half marathon but my first one is still a couple weeks away. There's always going to be a part of me that loves aerobics though. I used to teach aerobics in college and now that I'm poor from my school loans I miss belonging to a gym where I can do it.

 
At February 7, 2011 at 5:51 PM , Blogger JenniferB said...

2. My most favorite distance to run is the 1/2. I've only done one so far. I have 2 more coming up in the next few months. To me it's the perfect length. I wish I had your pace!

I love running many 1/2s throughout the year so that I am constantly training for something. So far this year i am registered for 5. San Diego Safari Park, Pediactric Cancer support run in Irvine, Disneyland (my fave), Long Beach and Big Sur!

BTW...my fave 2 candies are...airheads sour belts (the multi colored striped ones they have at the movies) and fun dip!

My favorite distance to run is def 13.1. There's something about giving it your all for the whole race is more thrilling to me than doing 20 miles. I also like it because its completely more bad ass than 10miles. Annnnd my favorite kind of candy are sour patch kid watermelons and chocolate covered raisins!

And for kicks and giggles, my favorite candy is sour patch watermelons. But I also adore organic sunny bears (but they're too expensive at $10.00/lb to grow too attached).
