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 did not run at all on my birthday. I usually run miles or kms to commemorate my new age but this was how I dressed that day:
Do you usually celebrate your birthday with a run?
2. I runfess…
Once I experienced foot pain back in November, I ditched my favorite Mizunos and bought:
- Altras (and returned them)
- Brooks (and returned them)
- Hokas (and returned them)
- Another style of Hokas (would return them but FF is closed)
and then ordered the same Mizuno Wave Inspires as I had originally. (15s on the left and 16s on the right)
Did you try different shoes only to return to your originals?
I pay attention to matching my clothes but otherwise I’m pretty lax about things. I have even worn new items in a race.
During my April Virtual Half Marathon, I got blisters on my feet. I wore good socks but then I remembered the
Karrimor Anti Blister socks (bought on sale at EMS) that I have been wearing for long races even during my full marathon.
And so I started wearing them again. My feet still ached but NO blisters. D’uh.
Did you pay close attention to comfort or fashion when racing?
4. I runfess…
I lost a pair of my favorite compression calf sleeves 😦
I tracked them down to having worn them last August (the advantage of having a blog and posting lots of running pics.)
I wear them a lot in the summer because most of skirts have pink in them…grrrr
Maybe they’ll turn up. Stay tuned.
Do you lose or misplace running clothes items?
I’ve been running a lot of virtual races. What else is there?
I only wear wear a watch when I run an actual race. And since I don’t really consider them races and don’t actually “race” virtual ones, I haven’t been wearing a watch. To calculate distance I either run where I already know the distance or I start my Apple watch and run half the distance and turn it off at that point.
The problem is many of the companies that offer virtual races want you to post your finish time.
So what do I do?
I make up my time. Since I do feel a little guilty, I post a very slow one (which actually may be accurate for the way I am running these days.)
Anyone else do this? Don’t report me to the racing Gods!
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.
