Run Legs Run & Potato Chip Recipe!

I'm finished chapter 3 in ChiRunning and I've now started adding sticky tabs to the pages of interest. One area that really intrigued me was the subject of breathing through your noise, not your mouth. Uh...what? I didn't even know that was possible. The author mentioned that if you have to breathe through your mouth, you're working too hard. Somewhere, your body is using too much energy from tension. The key is to locate the area of your body that needs to relax and change it. Whether it is readjusting your form or taking a deep breath and releasing it.

On my run, I put forth the effort to breathe through my noise. It was simple for the first 2.5 miles. Once I started adding incline, I didn't last. Even when I reduced the incline, it was difficult for me to return to nose breathing. At that point, I decided to solely focus on running with my center and letting gravity pull me forward.

One thing that the author did recommend was taping yourself while running to understand what your running form looks like, seeing if there needs to be improvements.

Sorry about blinding you with my super white legs.

The only thing I could see were my legs. I didn't realize I had such long legs! I also don't think I'm leaning forward as he indicates, but I'll learn more in this next chapter.

Anyway, shortly after my run, I decided to do some major multitasking.

Weight lifting AND baked potato chips?! I had plenty of time between cutting and baking that fitting in a weight & ab workout was nothing!

The recipe is really quick and super easy if you wanna try it for yourself.

  • Potatoes (feel free to use a sweet potato!)
  • Olive Oil
  • Seasoning of Choice (I used Old Bay!)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using a mandolin or a knife, cut potato into slices about 1/8 inch thick.
  3. Lay potatoes on parchment paper and drizzle olive oil on top. Add seasoning.
  4.  Bake in oven for 10 minutes, flip, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Chips should be slightly browned and delicious!

I was pleased that they turned out. I also need to try and get rid of my potatoes before they go bad! This was a perfect way to rid myself of 3!

Do you breathe through your nose when you run? Have you ever tried?

Have you ever watched yourself run? How do you think you look?

What is your favorite recipe using potatoes?
