As I was looking through some of my blog stats a few weeks ago to write my 3 year blogiversary post, I was very amused by some of the random search terms that have brought people to my blog. I thought I would share some of them today, and think out loud about what these people were thinking!
“wine running gear” Is “wine running” a thing? or did they mean running gear with a wine theme? Either way, my interest is piqued.
“tight glutes running” I’m wondering if this person is trying to get tight glutes, or if they are complaining that their glutes feel tight from running?
“keep negative thoughts out” Not sure if my blog was able to help this person with whatever negative thoughts they are dealing with, but it would be great if it did!
“can you run while on whole 30” There have been lots of variations of this question. I guess it makes sense why people wouldn’t be sure but it’s interesting to me because I felt like I was fueling just as well when I did the Whole30, and if anything my foods were more nutritious during that time.
“marathon boredom” Do you think this person is bored running marathons or watching marathons?
“i don’t like cold” I’m always interested when people type stuff like this into google because what exactly are they looking to find? Yes, many of us don’t like the cold, but if you typed that in and found my blog I highly doubt they were given any information that would help them to either start liking the cold or be able to avoid the cold.
“weak glutes plantar fasciitis” Weak glutes are linked to everything, right?
“what does being 31 mean for me” So many people want to know what it means to turn 31. It makes me wonder if people question other ages as well. You would think more significant milestones like 30, 40, 50, etc would get more questions than 31.
“wine and cold weather” Wine is good in all types of weather, in my opinion.
“red wine after running” Also, always a good idea. Red wine before running=not such a good idea.
“running 3 miles while fasting” Umm how long are you fasting for? I can wake up and run 3 miles without eating but if I hadn’t eating in a day or longer I don’t think I would be able to run or workout at all.
“loren cordain is fat” How did this lead someone to my blog? I may have mentioned Loren Cordain when I read The Paleo Diet for Athletes, but I never said he was fat. I may have written about eating more fat. Google sure knows how to confuse things.
“what is the term for running out of wine” Ummmm….”running out of wine”? Is there another term I don’t know about?
“the wedding anniversary it was half past ten at night and janice was” Sounds interesting…what do you think janice was doing?! Does google know that I never stay up past 9pm?
“weak back from body pump” I don’t think you’re doing it right if your back is getting weaker…
“what does it feel like to run with glutes” Good question. Something I am always working on.
“can i comment in marvellous in fb to a married friend?” I don’t know what this means AT ALL.
“running race with wine” Are you fueling with wine? That’s something I would like to hear about. Please comment or E-mail me and tell me how that went.
“what is worst humidity for runners” Any humidity is bad, but wouldn’t 100% be the worst?
“whole 30 running out of money” Yep, the Whole30 was definitely expensive.
“board of directors in spain linkedin @ gmail.com” When did I ever write any of those words on my blog?? (Other than maybe @gmail.com)
“i hate being sick staying at home doing nothing twitter” Do you think this person was writing a note to Twitter? If so, they must have been really bored.
“i am running out with negwtive thoughts what to do.com” Are you running out of something? That’s a lot of information to type to not be more specific about what their negative thoughts are related to.
“discount copper compression stockings for foot size 14” Hmmm. I know I write about compression socks quite a bit, but copper compression stockings? That’s new. And I’m like a size 7.5.
“lean and green spaghetti squash” Last time I checked, spaghetti squash was not green. Maybe they are adding spinach to this meal?
“running out of wine in an ancient wedding” Running out of wine at any wedding would be pretty awful.
“are runners good with maths?” We could be the best mathematicians in the world but still miscalculate our goal pace for that last mile of a race.
“how many times a week is ok to have pizza fitness” Just eat the pizza, and don’t ask google about it. You will be much happier that way.
“1)you are totally exhausted! are you training for the marathon? 2) i”m the best runner in the school.” Oh, multiple choice! What do you think the question was? I’m more likely to go with #1 I think.
“i am the worst packer im going away for two months” Just pack everything?
“do you regret getting a pink fitbit zip” I don’t have a pink fitbit zip, so sorry I couldn’t be of any help here!
“one speed pizza + labor day” What in the world is one speed pizza?
“what christmas feels like foggy morning” If it’s Christmas 2015, its 70 degrees and perfect running weather.
“reasons why wine is running out” Because I drank it all.
