I haven’t run since Sunday.
Actually, I haven’t done anything since Sunday. I’ve showered once or twice, only because Brian side-eyed me every time I threw a new handful of baby powder on my greasy head. He doesn’t understand that no sweat = no shower = no water = saved $$. HELLO. This is why I’m the financial planner in this household.
(the not working out part, the showerless $ saving plan is up in the air I guess)
I’m enjoying my time off and extra hours of laziness. With nothing immediately pressing on the race schedule, I feel no pressure to lace back up in a hurry. And that’s nice. I’ll get back to running on MY terms, not because I “have to”.
I DID drag my butt out of bed early Tuesday AM to go to the track, though, despite my running hiatus. Grabbed my coffee and some shoes that don’t tie (to avoid any impulse urges to jump in on some sprints), and took the OUaL film crew to TPT to document Margot’s newest challenge.
800s, ladders, and fartleks be damned. The newest workout to sweep the endurance world?
THE NUUN MILE.
4 bottles, 4 laps. Try not to puke.
Who’s going to be the first to challenge Margot’s time??
And then who’s going to try the Nuun Mile and the Beer Mile and report back on which one is harder? I’m giving a slight favor towards my beer-chugging skills (thanks, college) over my electrolyte-chugging.
Good luck to everyone racing, long running, or nuun/beer mile’ing this weekend!

I’m not sure if this needs to be disclaimed or not, but this “challenge” was not endorsed, prompted, or even technically approved by Nuun. Their only affiliation is our obsession with the product and desire to find new ways to consume it in mass quantities. So, Nuun, sorry if this is somehow defacing to your brand. Can re-name the Muun Mile if your copyright lawyers get their panties twisted about it.
… give them Margot’s number.
