It’s that time of the month…
Yes with the summer temps, I am still having lots of ice cream!!
I’d tell you that life has gotten in the way of my runs. I could complain about the heat but that’s not it. I have chosen tennis and social outings and just plain skipped my weekday runs.
Anyone else take a running sabbatical (when you are healthy)??
I’d tell you that because I did not have time to run, I missed that big heat wave. I was in NYC and the heat index was over 100 three days in a row. I didn’t worry about the temps or even consider running on a dreadful treadmill.
But just walking in NYC (and waiting for subways) had me sweating, I still managed to get in a lot of steps. 0 miles running but 17.1 miles walking in 3 days.
Do walking miles count as training?
I’d tell you that I am the worst solo runner. I do not have any motivation. I stop and walk, take photos, access FB & IG. Yup, the runs may be in the 14 min. pace range and I don’t care. (I don’t even wear a watch.)
I think that’s why I used to just run races all the time. When I am in a race, I get that adrenaline.
I’d tell you that that I was really looking forward to racing in Paris because I would be running the race with @fit_in_france
But unfortunately, she has to DNS because she needs to go to the US to visit family. We are in the process of planning a run together for after I arrive in Paris and before I leave for Bordeaux. Fingers crossed!
Anyone else ever run a race in Paris? Any advice?
I’d tell you that I complained that I may have lost my racing mojo. I had skipped many weekend races in favor of just running with friends.
My solution has been to run a race during the week. So I ran the Hump Day 5k on a Wednesday and I may run the Sefcu 5k on Monday.
Ever run weekday races?
Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here!
