It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
I STILL can’t seem to motivate myself to run in the morning before work. It’s not that I sleep in but I am lazy. I sit around watching the Today show, eating breakfast and reading email/blogs. Then all of a sudden, it’s time to go to work.
When I am busy after work and I need to run, I have to run at lunch. It’s ok now because it is still cool out. That will change when it gets warm and I will be too sweaty to go back to work.
How do you early morning runners do it?
Last month, I couldn’t go to yoga or the gym because I had tennis elbow. Good excuse, right?
Now, my elbow feel fine…but I still haven’t gone… no time, no ambition, too lazy.
I need an intervention!!
I din’t taper for my last half marathon.
I usually run 8 miles the weekend before but I ran 11 miles on Sunday.
Then I ran 4 miles on Monday, 5 miles on Wednesday, 2 miles on Thursday….
I ran my second fastest half so I guess it was okay and if it weren’t so f##in hilly, I might have PRed.
I also did not recover after my last half marathon.
I ran 3 miles the next day and also on Wed & Thurs. Plus I have 10k on Saturday and a 5k on Sunday.
I still have my Starbucks addiction. I stop on the way to the park. And I walk to the park everyday at lunch. (Darn, I wish they would close that store!!!)
However, I have discovered their Chocolate Banana Smoothie. Tell me it’s healthier than a frappuccino!
I don’t like hills. I walk rather than run up them. And I don’t train on hills.
So why do I sign up for hilly races?
Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month?
