My topic for today is: Five September Runfessions
- I runfess…
I ran a half marathon this month…two weeks before the half that I was training for. I planned to run it as a training run…but guess what? I raced it! It was hot and humid and it was painful. When will I learn???2. I runfess…
No surprise but I pick my running routes by the food options nearby…especially ice cream. Even when I work out of town, I do my research before I set out for a run. Any one else have this priority?3. I runfess…
I do not set goals. My running partner asked me what my goal was for the Wineglass Half Marathon this weekend. I replied that I had no idea!!
Should it be a PR? Or should it be faster than my last one? How about just finish and have a fun girls weekend?
Do you always have a goal for your big races?4. I runfess…
Again this month, I did not go to the GYM…not even once. I felt guilty last month but I didn’t give it a second thought this month. Anyone else slack off on going to the gym?
At least it was a free membership.
5. I runfess…
or should I say tennisfess.Tennis used to be such a big part of my life. I used to play everyday and it decreased once I started running. Then it used to be a few times a week and finally reduced to just once a week – Tuesdays.
I paid for a membership to a tennis facility because you can’t play unless you do and I signed up for my usual Tuesday contract. Even though I limited it to 2x a month, still my out-of-town work schedule has forced me to get subs and I am hardly available to play at all.
This may be my last year playing tennis. I’m not sure if I miss the sport or I miss my friends and our dinners out after tennis.
I refuse, however, to skip my Naples tennis vacation (even if I don’t play tennis anymore.)Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month?
Race goals…what is that?! LOL, I just want to finish and not feel like I’m going to die, usually.
Sorry to hear that work is interfering so much with tennis (notice I did not say running was – running never interferes with anything, right? I’m glad you’ll still go on your Naples trip…that’s too important to miss.
It is always hard when it is hot and humid for a race but you never regret doing them! Well, I never do lol even a slow one, I still love it 🙂
I guess tennis season is kind of over here?? maybe that means you need a trip to FL 🙂
I do need a trip to Florida but can’t afford one until March.
Have fun this weekend and good luck! And yes, the one goal I always set for my races is to finish, (so far, so good, lol) 😀
