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 have finally graduated from PT and doctor appointments.(Perfect timing considering what is happening right now.)
So I have extra $$ for racing. LOL (if there were any happening…)
But I am slacking off on any of those exercises that I should be dong to strengthen my hips, calves, glutes, quads, etc.
Do you continue your PT prescribed exercises once you are healthy?
2. I runfess…
I broke up with my chiropractor. (and that was before she closed her practice…)
I started going for ART when I strained my calf and then I was going monthly for tune-ups but once my foot started hurting in November, I stopped. And now she is pregnant.
Do you regularly go to a chiropractor?
I have now registered for SEVEN half marathons for the year…. (if they were cancelled, I ran them virtually)
Now that my foot no longer hurts, I’m thinking about #8. Crazy, right?
Update: My April Half has been postponed until August 29 so this one won’t have to happen. Since I am running all my races (virtually), I am sticking with one half per month. 3 down…9 to go. LOL
4. I runfess…
I almost registered for the Cherry Blossom 10 MiIer.
I have always wanted to run this race. I didn’t enter the lottery but I found out that so many runners offer bib transfers. Flights were cheap. It was tempting but I only worked two days at the Bar Exam instead of three. That meant I lost my extra $$$ plus Bermuda was expensive.
(Turns out it didn’t matter because the race was cancelled.)
I did not register for the 2020 NYC Marathon because at the time I was still experiencing foot pain. I wasn’t sure if it would ever go away. I did not want to run 26.2 miles like that. It was hard enough without foot pain.
But when only 2% of those who entered the lottery got in, I felt guilty that I had a timed entry (from Helderberg to Hudson Half 2019) and I did not register.
The race was cancelled after Hurricane Sandy so technically 2021 is the 50th running of the race.
So maybe next year… (If that foot pain stays away and I can get back to running at a decent pace or I get in by the lottery.)
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.
