Warning: This post is being written at 12AM because I had just got home from a loooooong day and I am experiencing a huge sugar crash. Readers beware haha.
Soooooooo clearly this week has been quite the mileage for me! Seriously. The dude has been gone for the week so I’ve been eating nothing but junk and working double the hours. I have honestly never been this exhausted for a while. I worked Monday to Saturday before spending all of Sunday turning Allison’s living room into our war room to brainstorm for Destination Outside. We spent hours there after filming a recipe in the morning.
I managed to squeeze 6K in on Tuesday. I knew I had a rough week ahead and I was worried about missing my runs. I had shot my coach a message letting her know that two weeks of a full load schedule means running might be pushed back. I would love to know how everyone does it! I seriously admire all you runners who work daily and get up at the crack of dawn to fit your runs in. I’ve been so tired after work that I’ve just been crashing after work.
Anyways, I definitely am feeling the junk food catch up to me. The 3K I did at Chase the Gear on Friday were a bit of a struggle! I’m not really sure I’m how my runs next week is going to go haha. To be fair, there were hills and we were chasing the Olympians!! Here’s some photos from the event:
Okay and now onto something a little personal. Dudes, if you don’t want to talk girly bits, nows the time to scroll down a bit…
Ladies, what birth control do you use? I’m currently on the pill and I’m debating about switching over to an IUD. I loved that being on the pill meant that none of my races would be affected as my pills starts Sundays so I’m always clear on race day. However, I hate having the spend $30 every month and remembering to take it every night (I’ve also dropped a pill every once in a while and have had to pay for a backup pill pack…so that’s $60 that month!). I understand that I may potentially have to deal with cramps once I make the switch but I don’t recalls my cramps being that bad that I couldn’t run. It’s been maybe 5 years now so I really can’t remember.
And before you say to go speak to a doctor, yes, I am planning to go in and have a chat but I’d love to know what my lady running friends are using! Please feel free to email me privately or DM me on social if you’d like!
So how was your week? Anything you’re training for? Tell me about your birth control!
