Happy Friday Everyone!! I’m so happy it’s Friday. It’s also the last Friday of June, which I’m bummed about because the summer goes by too fast. But, since it’s the last Friday, that means that it’s time for my runfessions for June. I’m linking up with Marcia today from Marcia’s Healthy Slice. Please stop by and join in with your own Runfessions!
I runfess that I have been a big baby this month and have skipped out on runs if I don’t go out in time to beat the heat. It has been super hot and humid. That mixed with my already upset stomach was not a good combination. So, I have missed a few runs due to oversleeping and being a big wimp. But, if I missed one, I did try to make it up with an Insanity workout!
I runfess that for the first time EVER, I somehow let all of my running clothes get dirty. This baffles me, because I have a ton, and we do laundry every day. I have no idea how it happened. I went to get dressed one day and there was nothing on my shelf!
I runfess that when we went shopping this week the only thing I could even find to buy was running clothes. I am getting really bad about this! We shopped all day long, and I couldn’t find hardly anything that I liked other than running clothes. I tried hard to stay out of that section in each store, but I always found myself there. I bought a bunch of tanks that can be worn for running or for normal wear. So I guess that is a step in the right direction. My running clothes (and shoes) are taking over my closet!
I runfess that I don’t think I have eaten a single banana this entire month. I don’t really know why because they are so helpful with my running. I guess maybe because I’ve been so obsessed with pineapples lately. I keep buying them, and they just keep going bad. Oops!
I runfess that I did not meet one training goal that I had for myself this month. My goal was to run our local race course and get faster on it. It is the hardest course with the most hills that I have ever run and I hate it! However, in my defense, (or my excuse) I have been working through stomach issues so just getting my runs in has been an accomplishment each day. I will go soon and start training on that course. I may try next week so I can be somewhat ready for the 4th of July race (if I decide to do it). I’m still on the fence about this race. When I race, I want it be one that I enjoy. It’s not that it’s a challenge for me, it’s just that it is completely unbearable! The 5k course is a loop and you have to go around it twice. It is full of very steep hills, and I have never been able to break 30 minutes on this course, and it never takes me longer than 28-29 minutes to run a 5K. The 10k course is just as hard. The entire course is uphill, and at one point it has hill that goes straight up for three quarters of a mile. The slogan for this race is “One Hill of a Race.” It’s very fitting. I’ll talk more about this on Tuesday in my Tuesday’s on the run post.
