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 am impulsive. Well, you knew that, right?
I upped my NYS Challenge distance from 500k to 1000K.
That means it’s 6 miles a day rather than 3!!
SIX miles… I only run 3 and not every day. I walk a lot but once boating season gets in full swing, that’s ZERO miles when on a boat all day.
What was I thinking?
It’ll be a challenge.
This challenge will be good for me, I hope.
Are you impulsive or do you think things through before you act?
2. I runfess…
I really miss racing.
Once my September Half Marathon (Saratoga Palio) was cancelled, I got depressed. My last half was in February (and I was injured). Remember I was hoping to run 12 half marathons (one each month) this year.
And I am sick of virtual races. I ran THREE virtual half marathons already.
So when I got an email announcing that the Adirondack Half Marathon was on (but with changes)…
Well, you know what happened.
I decided to take a refund for Palio and then signed up for Adirondack Half.
Are you running any races this year?
In the beginning, I whined and complained about being stuck in the house 8 to 4 – tied to my computer.
But as the weeks went on, I realized that I NEVER want to go back to my office.
I can wear running clothes ALL day. That means I get quickly sneak out for a run at lunch and be out the door in no time to run after work.
I am in no way running more miles (as you can see above) but what I am doing to getting in more steps because I am moving THREE times a day – before work, at lunch and after work. I will either walk or hike if I do not run.
Does working from home help or hinder your running?
4. I runfess…
The downside for me regarding work during this pandemic is that I do not get to travel.
I miss running in different locations. I miss my hotel points (to use for race-cations).
What do you miss if you are working from home?
I am enjoying my trails. I wish I enjoyed my weekday runs that much. I keep thinking that I should start running on the trails.
There’s a few problems. First I am clumsy. Secondly the nearby ones are not long enough. The longer ones I would have to drive to and it would be after work.
I think that I am just making excuses lol.
Anyone else prefer to walk rather than run on trails?
