Which means no half marathon training or even any running today 😩
That’s two weekends in a row that I’ve missed my long run for training.
My last run was 10 miles, so I know I’ll be ok to jump back in once I feel better, but I was really hoping to get to the point of upping my pace a bit to beat my previous half marathon time. It’d be super sweet if I could do the half in under 2 hours, but my missed training isn’t making me hopeful.
Hey people who have had leopard lizards, is it normal it they are picky eaters? Mine only likes her crickets, she doesn’t touch any of her worms
There’s actually a leopard gecko wiki (leopardgeckowiki.com). I’m not entirely sure how valid it is, but it might be worth taking a look at. The friends I’ve had said that their leopard geckos were picky eaters, so that seems fairly normal.
I’ve seen a lot of posts lately about abs and felt the need to put some thoughts in. A lot of these posts are along the lines of anons asking naturally thin girls “if you don’t work out, then how do you have such toned abs.”
I think a lot of what’s hard to understand is that we all have muscles, whether we can see them or not. This is more than just abs, this is muscles all over our bodies. We have them whether we work out or not. How do you think you hold your head up or walk or raise your hand to ask a question? All because of muscles. If you didn’t have muscles, you wouldn’t be able to do those things.
This brings us to the “well if I have abs, why can’t I see them?” Most of what keeps us from being able to see our abs is our body fat. Fat is all around your muscles and organs. You need some of it to keep your body alive and when losing fat, everyone loses from different places at different rates. In a lot of cases, the reason you may not be able to see your abs is because your stomach might hold a higher amount of fat than other places on your body. The same goes with any other area on your body. I can go to classes and see other people lifting way less weight than I do and yet they appear more “toned” than I do. This could be because of a variety of things, but more than likely, I just have more body fat than they do in the “toned” areas that I’m noticing.
The main point is that all bodies are different. We can’t compare ourselves to others based on what we see. Just because someone has visible abs doesn’t make them any healthier than someone with less visible abs. Just because you can squat more weight than I do doesn’t make you any healthier or stronger than I am. As ego-centric as it sounds, we have to focus on ourselves. It may not be easy to not compare your body to someone else’s, but the reality is that your body is yours and you must love it for what it is. So you don’t have visible abs? That’s cool, but how do you feel? Do you feel strong and healthy? Are you happy with how you look? If you are, great! If you aren’t, then the issue isn’t necessarily about visible abs. It’s about loving the body you have and being amazed by the things it can do for you.
