Do you crave salty or sweet foods as treats?  Or is it all good?

Post the usual this morning.  Workout - running or otherwise.  Non running related goodness or vents.  And food discussions are always welcome.

QOTD of the day was inspired by my midnight snack of salty caramel fudge.  I adore caramel, but this salty caramel fad?  I am not a fan. Just plain caramel thank you very much.  I am definitely a sweet person - food cravings, that is.  I"m sure DH would have something else to say about me being called sweet. :blush:  I do like salty stuff.  I certainly can't eat just a few chips, peanuts, etc.  I've got to eat the whole bag, whatever size that bag may be.  But I could most definitely give up salty stuff before sweet.

Workout was a hard TM run.  It didn't go very well, but I did manage to stay upright and got in 11 miles for the morning.  I wish I could get used to this new mill.  I've never had such trouble adjusting to one before.  Finished with a 60 min podcast using a new instructor for me.  I liked him and his style in general, but in places he moved way too fast for my taste.  I had to check that I didn't have it on 1.5x speed. And it is hard to get the same zen doing yoga in a gym full of people vs a yoga studio class.  But, I did alright.  At this point, I don't care a whole lot what people think...

Not much on tap except I"m going to "help" DS2 purge some clothes.  He did his pants, but none of his shirts.  We got him 2 sets of cubbie shelves a couple of years ago.  I don't think he's worn anything in those cubbies in 2 years.  At least he can get rid of his size small stuff.  He's 6-1/170lb.  He's not a small anymore.. We may also venture to GSO to go to the Cheesecake factory and possibly an arcade.

You stayed upright! :grin:  Much better than me in my race.
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:11 PM
Oh no!!! I hope you're ok. I ran there once in the rain - the 30K. Me and soft surfaces don't get along. It was pretty, but bad for my ATs

I don't overdo it with salt.  I'll have potato chips now & then, wheat thins are more my go to snack.  I don't salt any food except corn.  When I was a teenager I put so much salt on pizza that it looked like it had snowed on the slice! :shocker!:  Not anymore!  I'm a sucker for a sweet snack about an hour after dinner.  Cookies, cake or whatever we have in the house.

SDO for me.  Made a trip to Goodwill with some stuff this morning.  Clearing out space in one of the spare bedrooms and will eventually add a crib (from S-I-L's sister) in there to have for when we care for our granddaughter after our DD goes back to work.

Need to plan next week's spin classes.

I guess we were all dumb teens once! If the worst you did was overdo the salt on pizza, you did well! :grin:
Parent - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-05 5:02 PM
Salt on pizza, never heard that one. I had a friend when I was a teen who carried a salt shaker in her purse, she would put it on everything, I must ask her if she ever salted pizza!
- - By The Beard (is wearing Arm Panties) [us] Date 2019-01-05 9:49 AM
Salty, I guess. Not a strong opinion one way or the other.

5.3 sunny and unseasonably warm miles for me this morning. :cool:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:13 PM
Glad you have some good weather to enjoy :cool:

Sugar. There is no substitute. :meh:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:13 PM
Absolutely!
- - By Mookiethedog Date 2019-01-05 12:10 PM
9km ….two other humans and one other dog.

I guess I like salty....as in really good potato chips which I try not to eat.....but salty stuff is awesome after a long run:hug:
Parent - - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:14 PM
Yes, yes it is. My go to after a marathon was McDonald's large fries and chocolate shake. Guess it was a mix of both
Parent - By Mookiethedog Date 2019-01-05 5:22 PM
After my bigger tris it was McDonalds large fries and Sprite:hug:

10 miles on a picture perfect morning :hug: I ran 6 miles with a buddy then added on the last 4. It's been a long time since I did double digits so it was a good day.

I like both. I guess if I had to pick, I'd go with sweet. I am one of those crazy peeps that loves salted caramel. I got some delicious salted chocolate caramels around Christmas. :hug:

Took all the Christmas stuff down today. Boo hoo :cry:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:15 PM
Awesome run! And I'd say you must be normal, because it seems to be very popular now.
Parent - By brneydrnnr (barney cougar) [us] Date 2019-01-07 10:28 AM
we took ours down yesterday, the house looks so sad :sad:
- - By triplejake (The Vampire Lestat) [us] Date 2019-01-05 1:23 PM
I eat a shitload of potato chips so salty except I also eat a fair bit of sweets.  :cry:

5 miles for me today.
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:15 PM
You sound like me in reverse :laugh:

Celebrated an aunt's 90th birthday today :hug:  Salty or sweet, I'll eat whatever she's having.

5.5 miles today.  It was beautiful out there, but I had no energy.  Waking up and getting up at 3am might have had something to do with it. :meh:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:16 PM
Happy birthday to your aunt!! 

3am - blah. Hopefully, tonight will be better
- - By old turtle Date 2019-01-05 4:10 PM
15.5 miles around Salem Lake. Conditions were better than I expected but there were some muddy areas and areas where they had dumped chunky rocks  to help with puddles. My time was not quite what I hoped but OK. I fell around mile 10. No idea whether I tripped or slid on the mud. Whatever, I had skinned knees (not a problem) and a broken bone in my hand (this is a problem). Did I mention that typing with one hand sucks?
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-05 4:18 PM
Oh no!:cry::cry: I am so sorry. Definitely not the race you wanted. :cry::cry:
Parent - - By Schantzie [us] Date 2019-01-05 4:28 PM
:shocker!:  Broken bones HURT !! :cry:  Congratulations on getting yourself through to the finish.  You're on the all-Madden team now :cool::hug:
Parent - By old turtle Date 2019-01-06 7:55 AM
Sweet! I made the team! :laugh:
Parent - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-05 4:57 PM
So sorry about the hand. :sad:

I hope you recover quickly!:hug:
Parent - - By tahoeblue (spamkiller) Date 2019-01-06 12:14 AM
Ack!  Sorry about the hand.  It's a bummer when your break a bone in your hand.  I've fallen so many times I've managed to break or rebreak by right hand 4 or 5 times now.  Fortunately, it doesn't impede any activities, but it does hurt now and then - and one break tends to pull apart if I try to lift too much weight with that hand.
Parent - By old turtle Date 2019-01-06 7:54 AM
Dang it Tahoe! That is awful! Fortunately it is not my dominate hand. I just have to learn a new way of doing things for a while.

I am a sugar addict, no doubt about it.  I "need" a certain amount each day, and once it's achieved, I'm OK.  If I'm lacking, I'll be out looking for it in some form or another. 

Today, January 5, is my first run of the year :shocker!:   5 miles.  Tuesday I flew to Denver.  Wednesday, I hiked with my sister and two of her dogs, but I didn't run.  Thursday we loaded up a minivan (a Pacifica, which was an excellent vehicle) and my nephew's Camry then drove to Evanstan, Wyo to spend a short night, then we drove straight through to Columbia City, arriving maybe 9 pm last night. It was approx 1400 miles in two days.  I am so burned out on caffeine, sunflower seeds and popcorn.  My sis and her son are returning the van and looking at some apartments.  I was going to go but then realized if I did, I would miss another day of running.  Also I had a wave of fatigue wash over me once I started unpacking, so I begged out of the drive into Portland.  I have mentioned before that my nephew has  Asperbergers, so he is usually very undemonstrative.  He is excited in his own muted way, and it makes the extra effort much more satisfying :hug:
Parent - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-05 4:59 PM
Aw, your nephew.:hug:

Congrats on your first run of the year! FWIW, I haven't run yet at all.
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-06 8:27 AM
I"m glad you made it back in one piece without any major drama.  That is awesome about your nephew.  Lots of luck to him in his new job. :hug:
- - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-05 4:48 PM
I'll crave either, at different times. After a bigger meal or an evening I'll crave sweets. If I'm doing work at the computer and have a craving, it will likely be something crunchy and salty, like popcorn. I don't care for chips, but if they're around I'll eat them mindlessly.:blush: And I do like how the British call chips "crisps."

It's 5:30 pm and I'm determined to take a 6pm spin class. If I don't work out in the morning, it usually doesn't happen, but I didn't do anything on Wednesday or Thursday, so I'll be an evening person today.:meh: But I heard the funniest screen name while spinning the other day, someone on Peloton goes by "Matzoh Baller!":laugh::laugh: There are some names that are so clever. One doctor goes by "GYNomite.":laugh::laugh: I put Isabella on a plane to Savannah this afternoon.:sad: But she was bored out of her mind here, so I'll be glad to see her back in her routine. Other blather: I'm going for a test run tomorrow morning. After a bit of research on my foot problem, I got a pair of highly cushioned Hoka Bondis. I doctored my orthotics with a metatarsal gel pad, and with them, the Bondis feel heavenly. Other runners with my problem suggested them, and have run low mileage with them while recovering. Eh, worth a try. I suspect I'll be heading to a specialist in a week or two anyway, so why not?:roll:
Parent - - By Schantzie [us] Date 2019-01-05 5:16 PM
:hug::hug: about sending your DD back to where she belongs.  The first time I took my daughter to Boston, my heart just sank.  I could tell she loved it there :meh: and still does. 

If you must run again so soon, Hokas are the way to go.  They are super cushy.  Good luck.
Parent - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-06 5:19 AM
Thanks!
Parent - - By old turtle Date 2019-01-05 6:21 PM
The orthopedist I have seen in the past likes hokas so much he arranged a discount for his patients at a local running store.
Parent - - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2019-01-06 5:21 AM
:cool:

My running club gets a discount at the LRS but they never have the style I want.:sad:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-06 8:20 AM
They should be able to order them for you?  That's what ours does since they never have any in my size.
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-06 8:24 AM
I get it.  DS1 doesn't go to Scotland until the 21st, but he's been home since Mid Dec.  He's leaving today to go back to school and stay there for a week, since those kids are back.  I don't blame him.  There's nothing for him here at all.  At least the last 2 weeks, DS2 ad DH were home on break, but they go back tomorrow. 

And FWIW with the Hokas.  While they did not work for me AT ALL, the LRS said that Hokas will take them back no matter what.  They took mine and I had cut them and put duct tape on them trying to get them to work.  They wore holes on the tops of my feet, and when I ran the bottoms of my feet always felt like they were on fire.  I wanted them to work, but they just didn't.  But I thought it was great that Hoka took them back and returned my $$$.

A 10k step walk this morning and a 6 mile run this afternoon. 

It's snowing out (sort of) so most running these days is on the treadmill.  Too much ice on the roads to go out - as afraid of slipping as I am of a car just sliding into me.

I haven't been swimming yet this year and will have to pull the cover off the pool and take a dip soon.  Need to get back into that groove.

QOTD:  Salty for sure.  I can pretty easily pass on the sweets, but it's hard to stop eating those salty things.
Parent - - By PoopedColt Date 2019-01-06 8:19 AM
I assume that pool is heated?!

A 10K walk is pretty long, no? 90ish min?  plus a 6 mile run  - nice work :cool:
Parent - By tahoeblue (spamkiller) Date 2019-01-06 12:34 PM
Yes - the pool is out on my deck and is heated.  It's insulated enough that the snow will stay on the cover.

10k walk is somewhere between 90 and 120 minutes, depending on motivation (so usually closer to 120) :roll:
- By brneydrnnr (barney cougar) [us] Date 2019-01-07 10:32 AM
I love both - Lay's potato chips are just perfectly salty and crisp. yum. but I'll never turn down a brownie either (unless it has nuts, then no thanks)

benji and I ran 4.25 around 9am - it was chilly but pretty and I was glad to get back out there. Benji too no doubt. :happy:
