The Hungry Runner Girl: Where did I go?

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Where did I go?

Workout:

45 minutes taught spin

45 minutes elliptical (level 0, speed 0.1, reading a magazine and being a lazy bum)  Gotta love recovery days.

30 minutes weights.....wahoo, who am I?  I stuck with all upperbody because these quads are sore from the downhills yesterday.

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

I am a student again.  I am dedicating myself to learning every detail I can about running/racing/training/sports nutrition etc.

We spent the afternoon reading (Billy read about the science background of running and explained it to me at 5th grade level so I could understand it) at Borders and it was AWESOME. If I can't run 24/7 then I think I will just have to settle on learning about it all day.  Once again, you will notice how cheap I am.....bring my own hot chocolate ($4 for a drink, no thank you) and studying at the book store so that I don't have to buy the books and magazines.  PS JENN I LOVE THE SCARF....THANKS GIRL!!!

I gots me a little running notebook/journal and started taking extensive notes.

Fun Fact...I am a lefty but I play sports with my right hand!

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

What do you enjoy STUDYING or LEARNING ABOUT?

-Obviously running but also nutrition, the human MIND, anatomy and physiology.  Basically I find the body and what it can do absolutely FASCINATING.

Any other LEFTIES???

Time to get back to studying.....this time I will be studying a ginormous salad with my parents.  See you in the morning best friends!!!!

That's awesome! I so agree - the human body is so interesting. I loved my anatomy class even though it was hard. My favorite class this semester is advanced nutrition. Make sure you let us know about any fun running info you learned!

I read lots on running too!! Then all these stats and studies come out of my mouth when I met new runners and they look at me like I am crazy! But the best form of study is other runners experience.

Very cute scarf! It is a HOT day today here. I have a Nike Tempo short tanline

I LOVE reading books about film and film criticism. It is my second love.

After college I saved my pennies and took off (100% funded by me working and saving all my money) to Costa Rica for 3 months. The only book I brought with me was a giant philosophy book by my favorite philosopher (Philosophical Investigations by Wittgenstein). I read it twice while I was there (it's um, REALLY long) and took extensive notes with new thoughts each time. It was awesome.

My brain has gone mushy as I get older, so mostly I study the crazy on The Bachelor, and the rolls on The Biggest Loser.

You are adorable! I've been having to study for a human bio exam next week but I'm actually kind of enjoying the content (cancer, evolution, and even some nutrition!) I totally agree with you on the human body and nutrition and I also love learning through documentaries my favorite kind are political and environmental and I think religion is fascinating!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:01 PM , Anonymous Olivia said...

I absolutely LOVE studying anything and everything having to do with nutrition, the body and eating and staying healthy in general. I'm like you in that I also love learning about the human body and anatomy, and of course running and workout stuff too!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:07 PM , Blogger JenniferB said...

I'm a leftie too!!! AND I play sports with my right hand as well. Too funny! But I don't run as fast as you.

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:08 PM , Blogger Jessica Joy Daly said...

I love that you do that too! We always have a cheap date at Barnes and Nobles filling out minds with the newest information!

Really, I just LOVE learning. Anything that intrigues me, I like to read about and educate myself with. I love anything to do with our bodies, nutrition, and food.

Sorry, girl. No lefty here. I tried so hard when I was little cause I wanted to be cool, but I just couldn't do it.

I love learning about people and studying the way they act and live. Also, I am a lefty too! I do everything with my right hand except eat and write so I have learned to adapt to a right-handed world, lol!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:13 PM , Blogger Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

You A++ student you! And, you have a super smart tutor! :) You guys have totally inspired me to think outside the box for outings!!

So, basically, you are ambidextrous!! Spencer coached a pitcher (now with the Yankee's minor league system) that could pitch both right and left-handed. He had a special glove made. I think Billy might be interested in that fun fact!

I do the same thing at the book store! They have such a better collection of running books then at my library. sad yes.

Wait learning about nutrition/sports/social sciences is my favorite thing!! Let's go to Borders and read every book and magazine and drink hot chocolate, mmk?:)

Slash giiiirl I am NOT a lefty, but I am ambidextrous and can write with both hands! I guess that makes me double-handed?

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:44 PM , Blogger RunningOnCoffee said...

I love brain stuff. I volunteered for an fMRI study at the university where hubs is going to grad school because they promised me pictures of my brain. If I decide to go back to school, I would go back for a post-grad certificate in school neuropsychology. Don't think I can bring myself to commit to a PhD or PsyD...

Not a lefty here, my dad is though.

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:46 PM , Blogger danielle said...

I really just love to learn! Yes, there are subjects that are boring but I love to learn something about everything. The body and weightlifting are two of my favorites!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:50 PM , Blogger Alexis said...

Read Fast Track by Suzy Favor Hamilton!!!!!!!!!!!! Great book.

 
At February 19, 2011 at 8:56 PM , Anonymous Sabrina @ Radioactive Runner said...

I love learning about different cultures and languages! I also love learning about nutrition aswell and the specifics and benfits of certain fruits and veggies. loser? i know lol... and obviously anything to do with running.

I am a lefty aswell!! I write with my left but do a lot of things with my right hand..i'm glad i'm not alone on this.

Have you ever read "Born to Run"??

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:04 PM , Blogger Lucy said...

I am a righty but I tumble with my left...
So, best friend, since you are now an expert in running and all its wonderfulness, if you're ever looking for a coaching job I know someone in desperate need for one. Hint: me.

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:07 PM , Blogger winstead family said...

I AM A LEFTY!!! i do everything with my left hand except i shoot a rifle right-handed...do you draw or are you artistic? i am. i always poll lefty's and ask them that, because a lot of us are. :)

i hope you will post some of your journal entries about running!

i love that your husband studies your sport.. :)

i love studying the holocaust. it's weird i know but i find world war II so fascinating. it's so sad but hopeful too...restitution and preservation of the concentration camps... on that happy note, good night!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:10 PM , Blogger Cari said...

I recently found your blog and I'm obsessed. You're funny, and real, and inspiring!

I just finished Born To Run and it changed the way I thought about running forever. Get it from the library now! :)

Also, I'm a lefty, but play sports with right hand/foot too.

You are so stinkin' cute it kills me!! Your blog is my favorite!

I love learning about nutrition, weight loss, and exercise.

That scarf looks gorgeous on you! :) Even though I can't see your face...You're gorgeous so I'm sure the scarf still makes you look gorgeous! I LOVE LOVE to learn! This post speaks to my heart of hearts. I miss the days of going to a book store and just reading, taking notes and soaking in all the good stuff. Now I order to books and read here. I ahve so many running books and magazines scattered around my house. Please share things you learn. Please!!! Oh, btw, I know, stupid of me but I just now figured out how amazing your treadmill is... I mean I knew it was awesome and such a great gift but I didn't read closely enough to know all it can do until my friend tiffani who reads your blog told me all about it! Good grief...what a gem! :) I got some Udo's oil tonight...expensive but it is supposed to help with endurance and recovery...you should check it out. xo

AWWW Of course you look gorgeous in the scarf!! I almost bought me one too... should have!
Your the supermodel, not me!!
I LOVE that Billy reads and then interprets, Kev does the same thing. He loves researching!
What a fun day at the book store!!!
You and your hubbs are so cute!!
:) xoxo...
P.s. Can I come next time you and Megan go to lunch! I love you guys! :)

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:30 PM , Blogger Brandy said...

I'm a lefty and do everything else with my right too. I've always wondered why. Only thing I can think is when I was a kid I just saw everyone else batting right-handed and kicking with their right foot, etc, and so I copied and did the same! Or I'm just weird :-) The more likely scenario...

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:36 PM , Blogger XLMIC said...

Let's call you "economical" instead of "cheap" ;-) And nothing wrong with economizing... or being cheap, for that matter.

You do know what you are going to learn in sports nutrition, right? About the candy, right? And all the other sugary treats, right? Are you sure you want to learn that?

I love learning other languages. There were two years there where I was taking French, Italian, Spanish and German all at the same time. It was a blast!

 
At February 19, 2011 at 9:39 PM , Anonymous Bonnie said...

I love reading about the body, nutrition, fitness. (Biology degree~ whoohoo!!!) You are too funny and remind me of myself...If only I had another one like your Billster that would enjoy it as much as me! One day, one day;)

I may eventually start a blog. Sometimes I think about telling you bloggers that I stalk the random concoctions I put together based on your creative abilities and my taste at the moment b/c I know you would be the ONLY one who gets it! HA HA HA!

Anyway, the more I read, the more I feel like you are my friend all the way in Utah. I love it that you share your personality, honesty, struggles, laughs, and breakdowns all the same. YOU are a true inspiration. I can't wait to see the picture of you crossing the finish line in Boston sub 3! GIRL~ you got it in the bag...:) rest assured!

Can't wait for you to impart all the amazing wisdom you gathered during your studying sessions! EXciting!!! I need so desperately to get better and faster.

P.S. I want to BE YOU!!!!!!

I totally go to the bookstore to read/study their books so I don't have to buy them.... My boyfriend and I like to consider it a date (YAY cheap dates!). I'll study or read anything on cooking, baking, nutrition, running, or Jesus.

i love learning about nutrition, sports medicine, psychology and exerciseeee!!!!!! I AM A RIGHTIEEE woowooo

lefty! I learned how to use scissors right-handed (among other things) once I started school because the only left-handed scissors in my kindergarten class were all janky and rusty. and I obviously couldn't be bothered with that ;)

I hate spending tons of money on drinks at the book stores. So what a great idea of bringing your own, for some reason I thought that it wasn't allowed and I'm all about following the rules. :)

Working in a bookstore is like attending classes every day. So, since I've got 20 years of working at bookstores, I think by now I should have a few PhD's and a couple of Masters. What a great education!

I can barely pick my nose with my left hand! It's useless for anything but typing and displaying my gorgeous wedding rings.

I'm going to be looking to you for inspiration and cheap date ideas for a while. If you missed my post on it, we got slammed with a ginormous tax bill this year. Needless to say, we'll be pinching pennies for a while! Our date next weekend may be walking the Walmart parking lot looking for loose change. haha

I'm right handed, but left footed - all sports for me are better with my left foot doing the leading. My daughter is a lefty. I like learning about all sorts of things - so homeschooling is really fun for me because I can relearn/learn about all sorts of cool things!

My favourite thing to study is YOU. HA say hello to Creep Emma!! Nah kidding, but I LOVE studying running and food! I strap my running books onto the elliptical with a headband and study away! If only I could read and run at the same time! :P

By the way, I'm thinking of ordering the 'Run Faster' book, and I think I remember seeing you reading it on here...? Do you recommend it, or any other books on speed? Thanks gorgeous girlie:)

I am also a leftie who plays sports with my right. I also use scissors with my right but eat with both. If one hand gets tired I can move the fork to my other hand, haha!

I loved hearing the comments from other people who are the same. It's fun to hear I am not the only person like this!

I am completely fascinated by the human body as well. I could learn about it all day and never get bored. You and Billy are seriously the cutest couple ever. I know I say it like every other day, but it's TRUE! I love that he reads about running and explains it to you. So sweet.

I'm a lefty too! And play all kinds of sports (and hold the scissors) with the right hand too! :)
Love to learn everything about nutrition (I'm about to become a cert. nutritionist), dance, train, body, mind, how one can read another person (hello Lie to Me!! ;) ) and lots of other things too! :)
