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 was raced obsessed again this month. Three races but TWO races in ONE week!
- August 14, a 5k in Brooklyn
- August 17, a local 5k
(I came to my senses and DNSed a one mile race on Aug 19. Good thing, I was in NYC working on Aug 21 so I couldn’t run another 5k.)
Anyone else ever run more than one race in a week?
2. I runfess…
I am still confused on the shoe/foot issue.
One day the pain is gone. One day for no reason, it is back.
I’ve gone back to wearing my neutral Nikes for short distances. Sometimes they are fine. Sometimes not.
Then I added my insoles to my new Mizunos for long runs and they felt better…sorta.
Anyone wear different shoes for different distances?
Last month I bought a new Garmin, a 230 but I have yet to try it. Still doing my weekly runs naked and my races with my Garmin 205.
Anyone else hesitate to make technology changes or when you buy a new watch, do you use it right away?
Every year, my tennis friends and I go to NYC to see a Broadway show.
I do the organizing so I picked this show:
and got group tix for October 5.
Yup, this 10k race is why I chose Oct. 5.
Do plan races when you visit another city? Anyone else running Grete’s Great Gallop?
I used to play tennis almost everyday and on numerous teams. Then running came into the picture and tennis no longer seemed to fit.
I thought I didn’t miss it but I watched tennis at the Aurora Games and last weekend, I hung out with my tennis friends. And now the US Open is on TV.
Yup, I do miss it.
Has running replaced any other activity in your life? Do you think that you will ever stop running?
It’s Friday so I’m linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 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.
