Would You Rather Revisit #3

It’s time for another round of Would You Rather!

You can check out the Original Here.

Never watch TV again or never run again? 

Watching TV is a luxury. While it is relaxing, I love running too much.

I’d be ditching the TV.

However, does that mean I would have to give up reading or knitting, or crocheting? If I could do those then giving up TV would be a breeze.

Run 100 miles per hour or Fly 10 miles per hour?

It’s strange how time can change your thinking. Last time I answered running at 100 miles an hour.

This time. I’m going to say fly at 10 miles an hour.

While 10 miles an hour isn’t all that fast, I see it as a more relaxing and meditative state. And in this day and age we definitely (or I do) need more of that.

Only be able to run and not walk or Only be able to walk and not run? 

This question is stupid.

Walking has its place in running.

In some training intervals, walking is encouraged because it allows you to recover far better.

There is also no trail runner I know that doesn’t walk/hike the hills.

Therefore I choose neither. I run, and if I need to walk, I will do so.

Have to give up running for a year with the promise that you will BQ (Boston qualify) once you resume, or Never be able to BQ but run as much as you want? 

There are plenty of people that running or even qualifying for Boston is on their bucket list.

Personally I wouldn’t care if I ever qualified for Boston.

Could I survive not running for a year? Yes, I would just choose something else, like hiking, or CrossFit, or become a gym rat, and I would be totally ok with that.

Be injury free and a slow runner, or a fast runner with constant injuries? 

What’s wrong with being slow? Nothing.

I’m at a point in my life where being a slow runner is my jam.

Also, some turtles and tortoises can move really fast.

Definitely channeling the turtle energy.

Be a barefoot runner or wear running shoes all the time (even in bed)?

My answer for this one is the same as last time. It depends.

At the end of the workday, I love taking my shoes off. I always say “free the feet”.

In summertime you can usually find me barefoot or with sandals on.

Being barefoot has its place in the world. It’s important to walk around barefoot and strengthen the muscles and tendon’s in your feet.

It’s important to walk on bare ground and feel the dirt, sand, and water on our feet and in between our toes.

There need to be more shoe companies that offer wider toe boxes in shoes, as I think the majority of our feet issues come down to the shoes we wear.

Hydrate during a run with mayonnaise or wasabi? 

No, just no. Also, why?

Neither, I’d rather be dehydrated.

Run with your eyes closed or run with your ankles tied together? 

Visually impaired runners exist, and I have seen many run with a guide in events.

Being blind, visually impaired, or even having my eyes closed, wouldn’t stop me from running. If anything it would make me more determined, and more aware of my own body.

running with my ankles tied together, wouldn’t that just be jumping?
