It’s that time again (or a day late.) Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
For a short month, I have quite a few runfessions:
I keep looking at a photo from my last race wondering how I ran that fast. In my training runs, I struggle to run a 12 mm.
I just can’t motivate myself to run fast when it doesn’t count. Good thing I don’t have a coach? Or is it?
When I was sick, I walked more than ran during my runs. But I still counted them as running miles. Does anyone else count their walks?
I don’t pause my watch (when I wear one) when I stop and walk over ice either.
It’s movement, right?
And the race clock doesn’t stop when you walk during a race. It’s still 13.1 miles.
I’m not as bummed out as I thought I would be about my flu interrupted half marathon training.
I will finish the race even if I walk half of it. I’ve walked half a half marathon before and still finished in 2:45.
It is what it is.
At least I will be in Florida, visiting friends and I have tickets for a Mets spring training game (right after my half marathon). Woo Hoo!
That being said about not seriously running the race, I have still started weather stalking.
It can still change to 60 degrees, dry and no wind.
I am so sick of wearing my winter running clothes that I’ve already worn my new spring Skirt Sports skirt.
I mean it was 55 degrees.
Then the next day, I wore capris and I admit, my legs were a little cold.
I don’t like to wear headphones. So I just play music or podcasts off the speakers on my iphone or ipod.
Is that rude?
No runners have ever said anything when they run by me. But then again, they all seem to be wearing headphones so I am probably not bothering them.
Ok, when it’s free don’t you want to eat more and forget the calories?
When I work at the Bar Exam, they pay for breakfast and lunch. Normally I would eat yogurt & granola for lunch and a banana for a snack.
Since I wasn’t paying, I had a chocolate croissant from Starbucks with a venti Butterscotch latte and lasagna for lunch on Tuesday.
It wouldn’t have been so bad but I sat for 10 hours and didn’t even run after.
I worked there again on Thursday and Friday. And I didn’t eat any healthier. 😦
Happy Running! Anything to Runfess? Spill…
