It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
Well, it’s finally spring although it often still feels like winter.
1. I runfess…
I so wanted it to be spring for the United NYC Half that I dressed like it…and I froze. 30s with wind and I wore a skirt, baseball cap and short sleeves. Everyone else was wearing tights, beanie and jacket. Obviously they are smarter than I am.
Would you rather be cold or warm when you run?
2. I runfess…
After my previous half, I walked around a garden for several hours and then on the beach. I wound up with a strained calf muscle.
So you would think that I’d learn my lesson.
Do you relax after you run a half marathon?
3. I runfess…
Once again I signed up for the Freihofer Training Challenge group. It meets on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Not sure why… FOMO??
I often to my long runs on the weekend (in preparation for my big races) so neither of these days are convenient.
I’ll do my best to attend some of them…but seriously what was I thinking?
Do you belong to a running group?
4. I runfess…
I’ve always been a naysayer about massages, foam rollers and chiropractors.
That was before my recent injury.
Those ART sessions may or may not have made it possible for me to run the NYC Half pain-free.
I told my chiro that I may continue to come see her as maintenance before each of my big races. Hey, the visits are covered by insurance..
I even made a foam roller out of 2 tennis balls.
Do you regularly visit a chiropractor or get sports massages?
5. I runfess…
I was worrying about all my upcoming races that I had (impulsively) signed up for when I was injured. I even skipped one of the my favorite races.
Now I’m back in racing mode.
And I signed up for this one on Sunday.
Do you get FOMO and sign up for a lot of races?
It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month? Please share.
