Friday Five 2.0: Runfessions September

It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice

and it’s also Friday so, I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostesses and visit some other bloggers.

My topic for today is: Five September Runfessions

  1. 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?

Abbotts is near the Bushnell’s Basin entry to the Erie Canal trail. Whereas Schoen Place has a great gelato spot.

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?

difficult race but fun weekend in NYC

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.

the competitive me in 2010

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?

  1. 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.


  2. 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 🙂
