It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
This month, it’s a mishmash…
1. I gymfess…
When I say I will do something, I follow through.
That means three mornings a week before work, I go to the gym … no matter what!
At first, I thought: “I can’t wait until my free trial at the YMCA is over on June 4!! Hanging out with sweaty old men at 6:30 am is not my thing…”
But now, I am used to the routine. And I like routines.
So I think I’m going to miss my gym time.
I did send an email about my FREE local gym. Here is their response:
Fitness Connect locations are currently closed to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. It is unknown when these locations will reopen. We do understand gyms in New York are able to start reopening on 8/24/2020. But because the Fitness Connect locations rely on the public to self-serve and maintain the sanitation of the equipment, there is no guarantee that the proper sanitation protocols and safety measures will be used. We appreciate your understanding that we are looking out for the health and safety of our community…
2. I runfess…
Until recently, I was running three times a week by myself. I could run anywhere and at any time.
Now I run with a group on Mondays (FTC) and Wednesdays (STEM). Soon there will also be trail runs on Thursdays…
Yes, it’s inconvenient often to run at 6 or 6:30 pm. I’m tired and hungry!!
But it’s so much more enjoyable to run with others and I run much better!
4. I racefess…

5. I workfess….
I love the freedom of working from home but I am looking forward (a little bit) to getting out of the house, dressing up and seeing real people. I will be teaching live starting May 25. Two-four days a week, every other week, I think. (No NYC travel yet, though.)
The remote trainings will continue from home… For how long? Who knows?
Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month? Do you like to run with a group? Have you been registering for a lot of races in 2022? Do you still work from home? Yay or Nay on the gym? Please share!
