Friday Five 2.0: Runfessions October 

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 October Runfessions

  1. I runfess…

I skipped my long run last weekend in favor of a girls weekend away.

hiking in Central NYS – lots of steps and lots of laughs!!

I am thinking of skipping one tomorrow because I’m too damned tired.

It wouldn’t matter if I weren’t training for a half in TWO WEEKS.

Obviously it’s not a goal race.

Anyone else skip 11 and 12 mile runs?

2. I Runfess..

I recently stayed in a hotel in NYC where there was exercise equipment in my room. And when you turned on the TV, there was exercises videos.

EVEN Hotel

So I never turned on the TV again and spent minimal time in the room.

That how I avoided feeling guilty about not exercising.

What would you have done?

3. I runfess…

I recently asked a speedy running friend on how to get faster. He replied that the only way is to lift weights.

Ugh! I thought about it.    For a second.

What do you think?

4. I runfess…

The best and maybe the only good about spending five days working in Queens, NY is the running routes available in Manhattan.

I was worried that it would be dark when I got out of work.

But it didn’t matter. There are lights and loads of runners.

I hit the trifecta. I ran 3 times. Along the East River, along the Hudson River and in Central Park.

Anyone else run in NYC at night?

5. I runfess…

I love reading blogs but I don’t have time to comment or read new blogs.  Mea culpa.

I don’t bring a computer when I travel and don’t time when I don’t.

I hope this doesn’t affect those who read this blog.

Please forgive me and continue to comment here.

Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month?

  1. Well of course I would have exercised (but probably wouldn’t have had the tv on much).

    I’m not sure lifting weights would really help you get faster. But it’s beneficial on so many levels, and not just for runners.

    I’m willing to bet that there are lots & lots of people out running in NYC when it’s dark out!


  2. That hotel room, LOL. I mean, it’s great that the equipment is SO available, but yeah, no thanks. As for blogging/commenting, I almost only comment when I’m using my desktop, so even though I can read blogs on my iPad, I rarely comment – too challenging with it. My desktop remembers me. Anyway, I get it. 🙂
