#BESTFOOT - Are You One of "THOSE" People?!

I have officially become "one of THOSE people". Yep, it is true. I apologize in advance friends and family. But as 70.3 training progresses - early bedtimes, clean eats, and ridiculous training schedules are becoming the norm. And I have officially become one of those crazy training nuts.


Here are some of the tell-tale signs training is taking over your life, in case you have potentially become one of THOSE people too.


1. I now have a ton of obscure seeds, grains, and nuts filling my pantry.
2. Kelp Noodle salad actually sounds good to me .
3. I know what a Sprializer is, and that I need one.
4. 2-a-days are starting to become pretty standard, so is 4 cups of coffee/day.
5. 11pm is WAY past my bedtime, and I start to panic if I need to socialize like a normal human-being. I like to have my PJs on by 9:30 at the latest.
6. I have become a milk snob. "Do you have almond milk? Oh you only have soy. I have my coffee black then"
7. I will usually skip the wine at dinner, don't want it to affect my early morning run.
8. I will ask no less than 4 questions before I order off the menu, and there will almost always be some sort of modification.
9. My iPhone is full of more gym Selfies than anything else, and I am not ashamed to admit it.
10. I know what Kombucha is and $4 a bottle now seems perfectly reasonable.

I have definitely become one of those people. But I am okay with that! Are you one of those people?

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,

  1. Welcome to crazy training world. You'll probably share these too...
    1. Yoga isn't a workout it's active recovery/rest
    2. Your collection of muscle pain rubs outweighs your purse collection
    3. Date night isn't complete without a foot massage
    4. Heels just hurt now
    5. If you sleep in past 8am you feel like you are wasting sunlight.

  2. I don't skip my nightly wine...I look at it as reward for hard work done!

    Otherwise yes! I'm one of "those people"!

  3. Hahaha omg all of the above. Especially the almond milk one! I still haven't bought a spiralizer, but get a julienne peeler! Basically does the same thing and costs $2!

    1. hahaha totally did the SAME thing. I wanted a spiralizer but its kind of big and the one i was looking at was expensive. I think I will ask for it for my birthday though! I just love the pretty spirals!

  7. It's funny what changes once training happens, isn't it? I've definitely started going to bed earlier, wearing heels less (sad about that one!), and changing how I eat. Have you tried chia seeds? I added them in this training cycle.

    1. bahaha oh yes! Chia Seeds are among the obscure seeds, grains, and nuts I have in my pantry!

  8. Haha ohhh yes I am most definitely one of those people. Something else on my list though - I spend 99% of my time in spandex. Even at work. Throw on some fancy boots to cover the lulu logo and no one will ever know!

  9. I am one of those people in so many ways.
    Early to bed, early up, only own running clothes, everything planned around daily mileage... but I still suck at eating. I need to get better. I really do. I just gotta figure out why I keep sabotaging myself.

  10. This is spot on! I was complaining about our 9 pm bedtime on Saturday and Sunday but reality is John was asleep on the couch way before that. And that glass of wine totally messes with early morning anything!

  11. Yes! Bedtime is usually by 9:00pm for me too and I am already "stressed" about the "party" tonight to watch the lunar eclipse. My 6yo is beyond excited and one of her stepbrothers is coming over. The moon is not on my schedule but I am still hoping for clear skies and will know, I will be up late. And yes, less wine and doesn't everyone order off the menu??? I also have a few runnign skirts that look nice enough that I can wear to work to get my post work run started a few minutes earlier. Is that bad? Take care!

  12. Haha! I've definitely been there- usually in marathon training. I can't say I'm being super strict right now, but I do stress if I'm up too late because I know I'll pay for it the next day!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh yes yes yes! I'm a spiralizing junkie and agree with all of the above! Jammies are the first thing I like to do when I get home from work, foam rolling is as routine for me as brushing my teeth, bed time is usually 9pm (or earlier if I'm really lucky), and sometimes if time is limited, food > shower. I know, gross, but it's true. ;)

  14. Lol! I am not quite one of those, but I do ask a lot more questions when I go out to eat, and I don't feel ashamed!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, I'm pretty well one of those people too! I was out late last night for a dinner and when my alarm went off for my run this morning I was not a happy camper. 9:30 is my bedtime too!

  16. Some of these sound so familiar - I must sound like a loon to some of my friends and coworkers when we're out to eat!

    ReplyDelete
  17. haha! fun post, realistically, I would love to be in bed by 8.. I like sleep :)

  18. I'm not quite there yet but considering where I came from the fact that I have chia & flax seed in my pantry & I know the names of the Boston Marathon winners I'm certainly sort of "one of those people"!!
