It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
I cannot believe that it is Fall. Where did the summer go??
1. I runfess…
I signed up for a series of 8 fall virtual 5k races. I don’t normally wear a watch but you have to post your times in order for it to count.
Instead of my Garmin, I used my Apple watch.
The problem is that I am so out of shape, that I stop and catch my breath every 30-45 sec (no exaggeration).
A bigger problem is that my watch may be on auto-pause. (actually sometimes it stops when I stop and then sometimes it does not. I never manually pause it.)
You get my drift?
2. I runfess…
I also signed up for another virtual 5k and 10k.
And I actually won my age group in each.
At least this time, the faster runners did not run the race so I don’t feel as guilty about my awards.
I intended to run last Saturday but three of my friends had decided to walk instead of run. I gladly joined them
Who am I? Choosing to walk rather than run??
4. I runfess…
I am very comfortable running intervals at 13-14 min pace.
Though I know that if I raced, this would make me very unhappy. But it doesn’t bother me enough to run alone and try to regain some of of former speed.
I’m an amateur biker… so amateur I’m not even sure that I use the gears correctly and….. I don’t have a helmet (I know, I know, I will get one soon!!)
Don’t worry. You won’t ever see me and Big Red in a duathlon.
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? So glad to get mine out in the open? Can you identify with any of them? Please share.
