Erika from MCM Mama Runs, Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice and Patty from No-Guilt Life.This week's topic is Runner's slang.
I do not consider myself cool (as I have often told by my siblings haha) but I do have a few slang words I use often and in non-running company, they cause confusion.
PR/PB: pretty standard but Personal Record/Personal Best. I am going for my best and have not have a had in a while :(
Speedwork: I mean repeat-usually 800s but I prefer to do 400s haha
Long run: I usually mean 5+ miles but sometimes it can just mean 4. For non-runners, that sounds like a lot!
see I told you I was boring! I don't use slang often :/
and because I am currently obsessed with Hamilton (for real, if you aren't listening and want to, let me know and I will email you my Dropbox link to the cast album), I often call a 10 dollar bill a HAM. In a sentence-My bill is 10 dollars and I have a HAM. and if I have a HAM I debate parting with it haha. jk jk
