Happy Friday! I hope that you all had an awesome week. Here in CT we have been dealing with total opposite ends of the weather spectrum. On Wednesday it was 73 degrees and yesterday it was cold, rainy and around 40 degrees. We’re also expected to get rain/sleet today. I give up on trying to understand Mother Nature, lol.
Can you believe that there are only a few days left in February? Kind of crazy how this month went by faster than January! But I’m happy that it’s the last Friday in February because that means it’s time for runfessions! Here’s some things I need to get off my chest this month.
I runfess that I’m ready for marathon training to be over
Even though this training cycle is only 12 weeks, I am very much looking forward to the taper, and ultimately running the race. I’ve packed a lot of runs and workouts into this training cycle so far. I could be feeling this way because I’m in the midst of another peak week this week and I’m tired, lol. But seriously, I really enjoy the taper time and I’m very excited about this race. Just looking at all that will be available for race weekend (the actual races, the expo, speakers, pre-race dinner, etc) makes me smile from ear to ear!
I runfess that I might be ready to break up with the gym
If you follow me on Instagram you know that as of Wednesday, I’m pretty fed up with my gym. To be honest, I’ve been a member of the gym for about 8 years and there have always been some issues, but they did get better. It kind of goes in waves – for a few months things are great and then they go downhill, and then the pattern continues. Lately it’s just been pissing me off more than usual, especially with all of the “New Year” gym members crowding the classes. Also the gym is like one big petri dish and with so many people sick with the Flu, I wipe down everything like crazy! To be honest, with the treadmill, Peloton bike and some free weights in the basement, I can really do my own workout at home. If I decide to cancel my membership, I might buy some more items (kettlebells, BOSU ball, more weights) to have a really awesome home gym.
I runfess that giving up chips for Lent was a super smart decision
I struggled on what to give up for Lent this year. Finally I decided on giving up chips. I have noticed that chips were becoming my “go-to” snack which is horrible! The craziest thing is that I would grab a handle of chips even when I wasn’t hungry. I was literally just eating them because they were there. Talk about mindless eating!
I runfess that I’m a little stressed out about my job
We’re going through a bit of a transition at my job. It’s pretty complicated so I can’t even really explain it properly, but there’s a chance I may be transferred over to another company. I will not know for sure until mid-March but it is causing me a bit of stress. The sad part is that my current team will be split up so I will definitely miss working with those team members. I know that there’s a 50% chance I’ll stay with my current company so I am hoping that happens!
I runfess that my girls trip last weekend was more necessary than I realized
Last week I flew to Cleveland to meet up with two of my best friends. We planned the trip a while ago and I was super excited to see them. Because we all live in different cities, we only get to see each other once or twice a year. We speak everyday but there’s still nothing like seeing them in person. I really miss them a lot since I don’t really hang out too much with anyone where I live. It was really nice to hang out with them and catch up and talk about tons of stuff.
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions.
