FFF: The First Runfessions of 2023

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 this year!!

1.  I runfess…

Running Is My Therapy Drawing by Faiz Nawaz - Pixels

With all the stuff going on in my job, my poor running friends have become my therapists.  Luckily they are great listeners and don’t complain.

2.  I runfess…

12 Things You'll Only Hear Runners Say | ACTIVE

When you don’t know when you have to work and where, how can you schedule your runs?

3.  I runfess… 

I may have volunteered to work a week in NYC because I love to run in Central Park and would get to hang out with Cari.

4.  I runfess…

I am enjoying racing without a watch and running 1:1 intervals.

Ok, they are free races (and the fast local runners are there so no AG award would happen anyway.)

However, I like getting my long training runs done the day before rather than adding on miles before or after the race (as done in previous years).

Plus it’s rewarding to be able to help out a friend (who’s returning to running after an injury.)

5. I runfess…

I keep toying with the idea of joining a gym… maybe Planet Fitness..

I had planned to check it out first…

A month has gone by and I have yet to do so…

  1. Well, maybe we can run the half together- I was kind of imagining you leaving me in the dust while I take my walk breaks. Of course the biggest factor will be the weather- this morning it was 58 degrees (yes please!) but earlier this week it was 85 (noooooooo!) In spite of your crazy schedule, you always seem to get your runs in. I’m looking forward to seeing you!

    • I have to get my runs done. No matter what. Lol.

      I don’t do intervals in a race but I do do plenty of walking.

      Yes for 48 at the race. 85 on previous days.


  2. You crack me up with your gym situation 😉 I am not a gym-goer either (except for my PT sessions), and am completely happy working-out at home with my hand weights and other things. Have you considered getting a few sets of light/medium dumbbells or resistance bands? You can get in a great strength workout with minimal equipment, so don’t feel bad to not have a gym in your fitness arsenal.

  3. I would volunteer to work for a week in NYC too — especially if Cari was part of the deal.

    OMG, not knowing my schedule would drive me CRAZY. You know how I like to plan.

    It sounds like you don’t need a gym — why force it!

  4. Have you considered retirement? I know I am and I’m younger than you, lol! I have moments where I’m thinking I can keep going and then there’s that one patient who comes at the end of the day on Friday and yeah, you get me…

    Lol on the gym and I’m not even going there…

  5. Okay, giving this a go. I am just now getting back into blogging after years off. I almost forgot how to do it, but I’m not shy so figured I’d just start saying hello.

    I am not quite sure how this Fit Friday Five works, but making a goal to join in next week and start connecting with other blogs again,

    This post was super relatable because I’m constantly asking myself where I’m going to find the time for everything….

    Also ironic, I started my blog only to be injured half the year. Currently recovering from ankle surgery. One more week until my cast comes off and I can post about all things running again. Anyhooo, hello and trying to figure this out.


    • Not that often. It was a fluke on working in NYC.

      Yes. I don’t know what I’d do if I had to run alone all the time. My hubby would have to listen to me lol.
