Alright you guys, I’m really getting into this “runfessions” thing. What’s a runfession? Well, it’s like a confession except it’s on the run. 😉 So, prepare to hear some things you might not expect.
that I broke the cardinal rule of racing. *insert shocked face here* For my first race since surgery, the only things that were not new were my shoes, sports bra, and hat! I ran in a totally brand spanking new running skirt and tank and, while I had worn the compression socks once before, I’d only worn the compression socks ONCE BEFORE!
Luckily, even though it rained the ENTIRE. TIME., nothing chafed. Don’t worry, I won’t wear anything new for longer distances. 😉
that I skipped 3 runs last week so I could sleep.
Fine. Wine may have been involved on a night before one of those runs.
But seriously, I needed it. Literally could not drag myself out of bed.
that when I ran in the dark the other day, I scared this lady that was out walking when I came up behind her and said “good morning.” She jumped about 3 feet to her left and didn’t say a darn thing back to me. However, I was lit up like a darn Christmas tree, I saw her look my way when she turned the corner (BTW, it was dark and I still saw HER), AND I was breathing so how in the heck did she not know I was there?!?! Boo! lady. Hope you didn’t mess your drawers too badly.
Yes, I know that’s not nice. I’m sorry. But really, if you’re going to be out walking in the dark, you should probably be a little more aware. #justsaying
that I am not a fan of running or working out in short sleeves. Especially working out! I don’t know why. I’m definitely an all or nothing kind of girl – it’s either tanks or long sleeves. There’s really no in-between for me. That’s why they invented arm sleeves, right? So, the fact that I ran in short sleeves the other day and didn’t really feel too awful about it is ….. well, odd.
On that same note – I runfess….
that I don’t understand why races don’t make a tank option for their shirts. I mean, you would think it would cost less!!! There’s less material, right? I’ve received some long sleeve tech tees from races and I love those in the winter. But seriously, I hardly EVER wear my short sleeve race tees unless I’m out doing yard work and am trying to protect my shoulders from the sun. Uh, but, that still doesn’t mean I’m happy about wearing the sleeves!
that I really, really, really, really want to buy myself a new Garmin – looking at you, oh so beautiful Fenix 5s! – but I just can’t bring myself to spend that money. Plus, I just had to spend $750 to fix my truck (it’s paid for and I need to keep it as long as possible!) and $140 to fix a plate glass door in my house. *sigh* So, I’m back to wearing my Vivosmart HR on the daily and then, when I go run, I wear my old Garmin Forerunner as well because I’m anal like that. (Had a bad experience with the Vivosmart when I was first getting back into running. Did you know you can’t touch the screen to see pace when you’re running otherwise it shuts off? UGH!) Anyway, I should probably strap something on my right wrist so I’m balanced because my left wrist is carrying all the weight. haha!
Okay, that’s it for this month. Aaahhh….I feel better already. 🙂
Linking up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice for some sole(soul)-baring. 🙂
