We are headed home from vacation today. It’s always a sad day, but it also feels good to get home. Today is a rest day, so instead enjoy another Would You Rather Running Style Survey from Cori over at Olive to Run. If you missed it, HERE is her post. This was number 4 in her survey series. I also completed survey #3. Without further ado, here is survey #4!
Definitely hill repeats. Tempo runs are so tough for me, but practically every run I do loosely involves hill repeats.
I prefer to hydrate with water while on the run, and hydrate after my run with a watered down sports drink (such as Powerade).
I’d take sneezing over itching any day! Maybe if I ran backwards while sneezing it would propel me forwards more quickly?
Compete in the Olympics as a runner or in another sport? (What sport?)At this point in my life, I’d definitely say as a runner. If you had asked me when I was a kid, my answer would have definitely been in swimming.
I’m training for a marathon, not a 5K. What do you think? Funny enough, when I played soccer my coach gave me the nickname “energizer bunny” because I never got tired or stopped running.
I have only ever done speed work on a track. Although the track intimidates the heck out of me, I think I prefer doing my speed work there. There’s just some kind of reward in finishing each lap that I don’t think I’d get on the treadmill. Plus I’m afraid I’d be intimidated by the speed of the belt and end up flying off the back of the treadmill.
I’m with Stephanie on this one- I’d like to stretch and then do core work. In truth the only core work I do is when I do a 30 day shred workout, and I only stretch when I’m sore. I know, I know…
If you don’t have toe nails you don’t have anything to paint. You can at least paint black toe nails. Or you can walk around in flip flops with your black toe nails proudly on display, so that when people ask you about them you can tell them all about your running!
People who wear army packs while running always look so hard core! I used to see the cadets at tech running around with all of their gear. They’re tough stuff. Since I want to be tough stuff, too, my answer is army pack.
I’ll take once a day seven days a week over twice a day three times per week, as long as I won’t get injured. I’d much rather get to run once a day every day.

This is the face of a runner at mile 26 who has had leg cramps since mile 19. You don’t smile at the finish line after that.
Luckily I always smile enough for the both of us.
