Then, I know I was not the only one who spent the majority of my day plopped in front of the TV with playoff games on. All I wanted was to see the Baltimore Ravens lose. And better yet, the game was in Denver (close to me!) and people would be celebrating all around me. I trusted Peyton Manning to be able to do it.
After hours of sitting around waiting for the Broncos to pull through, I needed to vent. I was going to go do 3 quick treadmill miles. But then I thought outside would be more refreshing, so I packed on the layers (if anyone really was watching the game you could see how freakin' cold it was in Denver).
I went out for 3 easy miles. Headlamp, reflective gear, layers and layers on and I was ready to go. It was certainly refreshing and exactly what I needed! Even though the wind chill was in the negatives, I kept the pace slow enough to not push it but fast enough to stay warm. It felt great, until my stomach started to rebel from the large burger and sweet potato fries topped with goodness I had during the second quarter (hence the need for easy miles). But even if the Broncos did not, I survived and felt great.
Question: How long is long enough after a big, heavy, filling meal to run?
I usually prefer to run before a major meal, but today was just one of those days that it did not happen. I was actually proud of myself for not letting the heavy food in my stomach stop me from getting 3 miles in.
Anyone else into football? Picks or Hopes for the Super Bowl?
