I haven’t had too many runfessions lately, but I think it’s time to join up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice and give it a go.
It’s been a hot hot hot summer, and it’s shown up in the slowness of my miles. My runfession is that the slowdown hasn’t really bothered me as much as I thought it would. After all, I can close the books on August with about 94 miles for the month and 699 for the year so far. That’s nothing to be ashamed of, and I actually feel like I have been enjoying my runs much more than in the past.
I am really glad to have a new gym in our neighborhood. I runfess that I have only been one time since it opened, but my runfession is that I have been a super slacker with my cross training. I don’t know how much it’s negatively affected my performance, but I need to be better about not neglecting the other parts of my body to focus on running.
I was thunder and lightning-ed out of a run the other day so I sucked it up and got on a treadmill. Usually, I despise the treadmill, but for some reason, this one was ok. I didn’t have any pain or discomfort in my hips at all (usually, I get some kind of jangling feeling that last with me for a few days), and even with the hill interval setting and a few extra miles, I was able to run straight through without my Galloway intervals. I’ll try it again.
I’ve struggled with blogging lately. I love this blog and I love writing but I have been spread very thin and sometimes it’s just so hard to sit down and make it happen, especially when I’m writing and doing social media on contract. I commit to be better and to manage my time properly so I can continue my writing here.
What would you runfess?
