It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
1. I runfess…
I almost went to a race without registering first. I always run the Silks and Satins 5K so I guess I thought I did register. I am not a last minute person so I would have registered a while ago.
So a few days before the race, I went to the website to see which of my friends were running it and I did NOT see my name.
Oops. Senior brain!
I registered that day. Phew.
Anyone else ever show up to a race without registering first?
2. I runfess…
I did not travel at all in July.
So it was a challenge to keep running interesting. I get bored easily and don’t like to run in the same places.
So I don’t. See below:
Rail Trail … Washington Park … UAlbany
Zim Smith Trail … Corning Bike Path … Nisky Bike Path
Anyone else try to vary where you run or do you run in the same places?
I ordered a new pair of Mizunos. Why??
My right foot all of sudden started having that annoying bunion pain that I had years ago. It’s fine until after 5-6 miles which is what I’ll be doing every weekend until Nov 3!!
I’m pretty sure it is not from running but job-related – ugh those dress shoes and standing for hours in them. (They are comfortable until the end of the day… and then they’re not.)
The benefit of a blog is that I could look up when my foot stopped hurting. It seems to be the fall of 2015 when I bought my Nike Vomero running shoes. I recently stopped wearing them because I wanted to run in a stability shoe instead after a calf injury.
The Mizunos were super comfortable for THREE half marathons and now this pain…
Hmmm? Do I go back? To my Nikes?
Can I be happy again in my Mizunos?
So recently I ran the first 3 miles of my long run in my Nikes and the last 5 miles in my new Mizunos (but I forgot to put in the expensive insoles).
The Nikes felt more comfortable.
I’m not giving up on you yet.
Anyone else have the running shoe dilemma?
4. I runfess…
31 Days of Skirt was pretty exhausting. I do take a lot of pictures and post to Instagram often but not everyday and not following certain clues.
Still it was fun to participate in this annual challenge but glad it’s ALMOST over LOL.
Did you participate in 31 days of skirt or any other similar challenge?
I was pretty proud that I had a training schedule for my first marathon. I actually planned to follow it.
But all I do is cross things out and re-write things.
That’s why, I rarely use a plan.
Anyone else have problem following a training plan?
