It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
I have more time than ever but I have to force myself to blog. I am running and racing. I just don’t feel like going on my computer at home.
I used to be on the computer all day at work. Whenever I got to work early or stayed late or even during a break, I would blog. I’ve blogged almost everyday for 8 years.
I still read your blogs on my iPad so I’m not ignoring you. And maybe soon I’ll get my blogging mojo back.
Speaking of having more time. I always said if I didn’t work, I would have time to workout or go to the gym.
Nope, haven’t been once. Haven’t planked nor done yoga nor done push-ups.
I’m an exercise slacker.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been home watching TV (or cleaning my house or even cooking).
I’ve been busy all day.
Tennis at least once a day, sometimes twice. Errands, catching up with friends, running, racing, walking, hiking.
For the first time since I got my FitBit (in Sept), I had over 10,000 steps for 7 days in a row.
For the first time since I started running, I am playing tennis as often as I run. Yup, 4 times a week. But I am sure that I am putting more time into tennis than running. I play doubles for at least 1 1/2 hours. My week day runs are only 3-4 miles. Definitely not running for 1 1/2 hours. And last weekend, I ran two 5k races. Less than one hour total for 2 days.
Sorry running. I am cheating on you.
Because tennis is scheduled at a certain time. Unless, I run with someone else, I can procrastinate and go whenever or not go at all. Plus, running is HARDER!!!!!!!!!! Especially in the summer when it is hot and humid.
I used to wear suits everyday for the job I had for 8 years before my last job. Now that I hoping to be going on interviews, I thought I might wear one.
In 10 years, my body has failed me. The pants and skirts are too tight and the jackets are too big.
Does your weight move around? Or did they always fit like that?
Maybe I should put that battery in my scale (or go to the gym)?
And no, I don’t want to buy new boring clothes. (Odd that I never complain about having to buy new running clothes…)
They say things happen in threes.
So I lost my job. I lost my car key.
Now the ZOOMA Cape Cod half marathon that I signed up for 7 months ago has been cancelled.
They never got a permit for the race so they decided to change it to a yoga weekend with a non-timed fun 5k or 10k group race.
For $100 race fee plus $300 for the hotel and 3 1/2 hours travel time & gas — I don’t think so. (They are giving refunds, Thank God.)
I actually wasn’t that disappointed though I’d love to run a race on Cape Cod someday.
Instead I have several possibilities where I can run 13.1 miles and sleep in my own bad.
There’s a hilly one on August 15 along Lake George, another on Sept. 18 in Saratoga and I already signed up for a new one in Adams, MA on Oct 9.
Happy Running! Anything to runfess? Ever have a big race cancelled? Ever lose your running or blogging mojo?
