Cori posted a great “Would You Rather …” running survey on her blog, and it has been making the rounds around the internet ever since. After reading Angela‘s and Debbie’s answers, I decided to take the survey myself.
Would You Rather?
#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
I’m afraid of getting struck by lightning, so I would definitely rather run in a snowstorm. Plus, we don’t get that much snow where I live, so whenever we do I always want to go out and play!
#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
All breathing is good! I definitely breathe through my mouth when I run. Otherwise, I usually breathe through my nose.
#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
I like doing squats better than crunches, so I will pick squats, but I’m sure 100 will burn! (But hard is where it happens, right?)
#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
I’ll take a Starbucks double chocolate brownie, please.
#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
I don’t mind the treadmill that much, especially if I can watch t.v. while I plod along.
#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
As long as it’s not a migraine, I think I’d rather have a headache, because I probably could run through it and then take a nap to get rid of it.
#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
I usually take Sunday as my rest day, so I guess that’s my answer (day off). I need the endorphins to get through a day of work, and I need the exercise to balance all the desk-sitting I do at the office.
#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
A volunteer. Being a race director would be so stressful!
#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Um, I need both! I don’t need the latest gadgets though, as long as I can track my pace and distance and listen to some music, I’m set. On the other hand, I do need new running shoes every few months.
#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
I think it would be fun to be part of a relay team.
Have you taken this survey? (If so, leave a link to your post in the comments and link-up on Cori’s blog!)
Squats or crunches?
