may runfessions: keep on running

It’s time for our May Runfessions, and my theme is just to “keep on running,” There is so much insanity in our world, and I feel like I have to keep pushing forward in order to see my way clear.

Let’s join up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice and talk it out in our May Runfessions.

I was stunned that the Boston Marathon announced it was going virtual in 2020 (they are also offering refunds to participants, as well as some other options). Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand the decision, and I know it wasn’t an easy one, but it just seemed like we were seeing light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. Obviously, this could still be the case, but there are so many logistics in play that the mayor of Boston clearly felt it wouldn’t be safe to hold this as an in-person event. My heart goes out to all the athletes who will not be able to run these 26.2 miles in 2020.

Having a puppy is no joke. Luna is a good girl, and is really doing great with her sleeping and potty training, but holy moly, does she has some energy. She is into EVERYTHING, she’s crazy smart, and I always have to keep an eye on her. I’m not complaining: puppies are freaking amazing, but it has been a super long time and I am out of practice. It’s all worth it, for sure, but I am tired!

I’m glad the school year is over. Little man did great work, and his teachers and school were on point with the crisis/distance learning, but it was stressful and truly not how the year should have been. Of course, I can also runfess that these first days of summer have been challenging: even little man said “we had so much more to do when I was younger.” Sure, because he still loved crafts and activities that I put together. Now, he has his own idea of how he wants to spend his time, and I assure you, it’s not on the cute projects I unearth on Pinterest.

Couch To 5K has been so good for me. Every time I look ahead on the program, and tell myself I can’t do the next session, I get out there and surprise myself. While there is zero reason that I couldn’t have just gone with my Galloway intervals, I would love to see what I can do, with this opportunity of restarting my training from scratch. Even on the worst days, I’m really just so proud of how far I’ve come.

In spite of the previous runfession, I’m a little disappointed to still have a limp as the day wears on. I don’t want to say I’m in daily pain, exactly, but I am stiff and uncomfortable quite often. People have said that it takes over a year to get back to “normal” and I hope that I will feel that normal one day soon. It’s discouraging to not be able to do certain things, and to think I might never do certain things again. I am hopeful that I can just keep moving forward and one day things will be a little easier. Fingers crossed.

Even with my above disappointment, I am super, absurdly excited for the Best Damn Race Florida Challenge! My team is the QuaranTeam Queens and my friend L and I will start logging our 1000K on June 15. I wish we could start sooner, but the race director wants to give the solo runners/walkers and cyclists a few extra days. Do you want to join me?
