It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
and the first one for 2021!!
1. I runfess…
I jumped on the FREE two month trial of Peleton. I have done some of the runs and the cycling classes.
Everyone seems to LOVE it.
Maybe I expected too much. I find it hard to search for classes. I want to be able to search by the type of music! I also want to listen to the music and not have it overshadowed by the instructor’s voice. I know they are trying to motivate you but …. And I also find the running classes too short. Most are 20 or 30 minutes (a few are 45 min.) I usually run 3 miles. So I have to start running early and then switch or run after to get my miles done. Lastly, I wish that I could download the class onto my phone so I could run outside without using up all my data and my battery life. (I do not have unlimited.) I’m pretty sure it’s my problem because my phone connects to my Apple watch which I use for distance and recording my steps (for Virgin Pulse $$). I think I just have to put both on airplane mode (haven’t had the time to experiment.)
Have you signed up for Peleton? Do you love it? Or do you have any complaints about it?
2. I runfess…
I am stubbornly continuing to run 10 miles every weekend. I admit. It is hard for me to run that many miles alone. With the weather and COVID-19, the size of my running crew has shrunk. I think this winter is going to be challenging.
Do you do your long runs solo or do you prefer to have company?
I still haven’t decided on my next half marathon. I reserved my hotel rooms, booked my flights, rented a car (and got time off from work) just in case I run this one:
I am DEFERRING this Melbourne race until 2022:
The Fort Lauderdale race would work out perfectly timing-wise. I have Lincoln’s birthday and Presidents’ Day off (Friday & Monday). I also have four friends who winter in Delray Beach (about 20 min away.)
But the virus and wearing masks…..
Anyone else running or have run any in-person races in Florida?
4. I runfess…
I had deferred last year’s April (re-scheduled to August) half marathon. Fortunately, our local racing organization (ARE) will be holding this race and a few others. We have until Feb. 1 to decide whether to run it in 2021 or defer again to a future year.
I so want to race that I signed up for this year. Reluctantly. It’s not on the original course but on the course that I ran on last November. (It will go back to the original course in 2022.)
Have you signed up for any in-person races yet? Do you plan to?
I signed up for three virtual races – a free 5k on January 1.
and a 15k on January 30.
I didn’t plan to race either one but I will have company for both.
One of my running friends who is in Florida will run the 15k with me virtually tomorrow as well Kim (and maybe some other bloggers.)
And then this one by March 15k:
Do you enjoy running virtual races with virtual running friends or do you run them alone?
So Join in!
And don’t forget to link back to your hostesses and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month? Please share.
