It’s the last Friday of the month, which means it’s time for Runfessions with Marcia’s Healthy Slice!
I don’t often get to participate in this link-up, but the stars aligned today, and here we are.
Runfession: I need to replace some shoes.
I have a really nice rotation of three pairs of shoes going right now, and I don’t want to I’ve any of them up, even for the purposes of replacement.
I am hoping that the Run Rock ‘n’ Roll themed Adrenalines will make it to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Half Marathon weekend, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that the Supernova STs will go all the way to the Space Coast Half Marathon after Thanksgiving. It’s ridiculous (and a little unwise) that I can’t bring myself to upgrade, but I am at such a sweet spot with them all and I hate messing with that.
Runfession: I have failed at cross-training this year.
I had a lot of goals in regards to cross-training and I have let them get away from me. I’m annoyed with myself, but I also need sleep. Mr PugRunner is working a lot of extra hours due to some evolution and development in his business and so I don’t have as much backup around the house. I am already waking up before 5AM three days a week to run; I can’t bear the thought of adding two more crazy early mornings for boot camp or similar. I need to get it figured out because I know it would improve my strength and stamina and be good for my body and mental health, but it’s just not working right now.
Runfession: I miss running blogging.
Adjusting to a new schedule where I balance, home, work, writing, PTA and Scouts means I have less time for my blogging. I try really hard to get out a weekly wrap post on the regular, but I am way behind on race reports, cute photos and the fun stuff that I love about blogging. I also miss the community and the interaction I have had in the past. Everything goes in cycles of course, but I feel like something is missing from my writing life and I need to get that back.
Runfession: I am pondering a new challenge.
Even though I am excited to try for a race in 50 states, I have my eye on the Run DONNA Booby Trap Challenge in February.
It’s kind of pricey, but the money goes to a great cause, so I am trying to see if I can justify it in the budget. The challenge requires a back-to-back 5K and 10K on Saturday, followed by the Half or Full Marathon on Sunday. I would obviously go for the half. Usually, by February, I am all done with the 13.1 distance, but my miles have been going well the last few months, and I think I could manage it, especially in the parameters of a race like DONNA and if I can wrangle a few friends into joining in the fun.
What do you have to runfess this month?
