It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
Time flies in a pandemic. This is my 4th pandemic Runfession post.
1. I runfess…
I have a high tolerance for pain. I’ve raced with a stress fracture and a broken foot.
No surprise that that I waited several weeks before I went back to the podiatrist for my neuroma.
Next up maybe laser therapy…
Do you seek medical attention right away or procrastinate? Have you gotten laser therapy for pain?
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 (for walking)
- Back to Mizuno Inspires (for short runs)
And now I am trying Topos!!
Did you try different shoes or stick with one brand?
I thought I would continue with some virtual races. For good reasons. Support the racing organization, charity, add to my swag collection or just to motivate myself to run faster.
Nope, I’m done!
At least paying money to run them. And who needs another glass or medal??
If they are free, maybe??
Are you still signing up for virtual races?
4. I runfess…
We’re pretty good in Upstate NY with Covd-19 though there are still new cases. I am considering running a race, any race.
Anyone else have run a real race or considering doing so?
I upped my goal in the NYS Challenge from 500k to 1000K because I would be done too early in the summer.
Then my foot started bothering me so I thought I should probably cut back on the walking, hiking running and maybe get my bike out.
Biking miles don’t count!!
And I am stubborn. So back to walking, running and hiking until I am done with 1000k.
Would you bike even if it did not count? Do you like biking?
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.
