So my 1st Runfession would be that I missed the Friday post of Runfession-haha! So here we are on Saturday. I really can’t believe it is time for another purging of Runfessions….2015 is almost over-can you believe that there are 61 days until 2016! Wowsers!
Linking up with Marcia for Runfessions.
Feel free to share your runfessions and also check out what others are runfessing!
I runfess, that I may be being too over confident for my last half in December. I did a very lax training for Ragnar and RnR Brooklyn and did very well in both and so feeling like I will be able to knock out my last half with no much training. I know that is not the case so i am getting things in order for this week coming to get more focused and prepared. I have just over a month (34 days to be exact)…i need to get my -ish together!
I runfess, that a few weeks ago at my track workout, there was a new girl who I was not nice to (that is so not me). She came in with a bit of a competitive edge (which I totally respect) but she went about it the wrong way. On of the things that I like about the track sessions is that the atmosphere if one of support and running for you. There is no competition (per se) and everything we do is at YOUR best effort. We always use each other to push ourselves harder but never in a way to taunt or tease. Well she being new didn’t know that and as we were running a few of our sprint, she kept saying to me that she was going to ‘draft’ me. Not the way of using me to block wind as often done in biking but meaning she was going to pass me. Uggh this got under my skin and for the rest of the work out, I crushed her! I felt good at the time to shut her up but felt badly that I let her get to me and change the spirit of the track workout atmosphere for me.
I runfess, that I have decided instead of not running any half marathons per the dr.) next year, I will run at least one and maybe 2. I have really falling in love with the half distance and am finding it really hard not to participate in something that I enjoy.
I runfess, that since my track workout on Wednesday, I have had a funny twing feeling in my ankle and Achilles that I am going to ignore. I am using positive energy and thoughts to will the pain away. Ok..ok, if it is still hurting by Monday, I will talk to the dr.
I runfess, that I had total race envy and guilt last weekend with the Marine Corps Marathon. I totally should have signed up for the 10k…..and should have been there to see and support so many of my friends running in both races. Next year!
Ahhhhh, I feel better now! Thanks for allowing me to get that out!
Do you have any Runfession? I would love to hear them?
