“You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!”
— The Doctor, Season 2, Episode 2
I recently stumbled upon a blog talking about running, Doctor Who, and smoothies. I know, right? How could I not like it?
Unlike Sonya, My running epiphany didn’t happen during an episode of Doctor Who. It happened a bit earlier, but I did make the same correlation when it came to a perfect companion for the Doctor. Seriously though, why didn’t he hold timed running trials? Sure they had to have brains, but if they couldn’t outrun an impending Dalek/Cyberman/Weeping Angel dooms day attack, what’s the point?
I did like hearing that other people use the Couch to 5k program. That’s the program that got me moving like no gym coach in my life had ever been able to. Now that I’m rebooting it, I’ve gone right back to what I know works.
Then on top of that, she throws out a smoothie recipe that made my mouth water. Now that’s something I didn’t think of. Rewarding myself after the run. Now I’m not sure a rich and creamy smoothie might be the best reward, but heaven knows I’m not the one making all the best decisions. A smoothie can’t hurt, and will make damn sure I strap on those clods and head out the door.
In fact I think that post has inspired me to chronicle my own running regimen. Odin knows my cooking and recipes would be the last thing people would want to read, but my running… that could be interesting.
Well, interesting as long as I promise not to write about it everyday. Maybe just a segment. Once a week or so. Hmm.
Something to think about. Oh, and if Sonya reads this, I wonder if you could come up with a Doctor Who themed smoothie. I’d be happy to try it.
