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 wore brand new running shoes out of the box for my 20 miler.
It was during a 7 mile re-race run followed by a half marathon. And they were the same as shoes I had previously wore out — just a new pair. I was in pain but it was NOT because of the shoes LOL
Anyone else race in new shoes?
2. I runfess…
I skipped one of my long runs in favor of a 10K race.
It was supposed to be a 14 miler but I did walk 8 miles that day in addition to the Grete’s Great Gallop 10k race in NYC.
Anyone else not worry about getting in ALL their long runs?
I signed up for a race the day after my 20 mile training run.
I planned to walk it. I was in a lot of pain during the second half of the run (and after) but the next morning all the pain was gone. I was good, though and walked MOST of it. Check out that 5k finish time LOL.
Anyone else recover from a long run or big race with a race?
4. I runfess…
I also signed up for a 15K race the week after my first full marathon.
I was at a recent expo and there was a discount. Again, I can take it slow if I am still sore, right?
Anyone else race right after a full marathon ?
I also may run a 5k race (tomorrow the week before my full marathon and add on 5 miles before or after.)
It’s for a great cause and my running friends are busy this weekend. Why not race/run?
Anyone else like to race all the time?
