Just wondering - all of you hard core runners - do you have habits that you justify or rationalize because you run so eff'ing far each week? As in -
Yep, I drink a bottle of wine every night, but I run 10 miles a day, so lay off!
Sure, I ate that whole row of oreos but I did 39 miles this week, so f%$@ off!
No shit, I slept until noon and had 5 pancakes, 4 links of sausage and 3 cinnamon rolls but I did a half marathon the day before, so screw you!
I have to be honest here - I do find myself justifying my bad habits because I run so much. I mean, even if I eat like a pig or drink like a sailor, I run long distances regularly so it's all cool, right? Everyone close to me knows I'm a runner. They might think I'm all healthy and in shape cause I run. I feel like I have this secret world of bad habits. Like if they all just knew...well, certainly they wouldn't think I was all that healthy.
Just wondering if I'm the only one who is healthy and not healthy all at the same time???
