Happy Friday! Well, another month is almost over. 2019 seems to be going by as quickly as 2018!
As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get started!
I runfess that I’m putting more of an emphasis on strength training
I love strength training but this year I am hoping to take it to the next level. I know that doing classes at Orange Theory Fitness will help with that, but the studio won’t be open for another month or so. Until then, I’m really enjoying all of the strength classes on the Peloton app. They even have the classes broken out by categoey – legs and glutes, core, arms and shoulder, chest and back, full body, toning and bodyweight. Also because most of the classes are short (10-15 mins), I can easily add one or two classes after a run.
I runfess I’m trying to limit my screen time
Although I don’t watch too much TV, I spend a lot of time on laptops. I work on one all day at work and then I also use my laptop for blogging. Besides the laptop, I am usually on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram daily. It’s just too much time looking at screens. I’ve been trying to “unplug” by 8pm each night. So far my success rate with that is about 50/50 but I’m glad that I’m at least aware of it now.
I runfess that I’m looking forward to my first race of the year
My first race of the year will be the Hot Chocolate 15K in Philly on April 6th. I can’t believe that I haven’t done any races this year! I’m looking forward to going to Philly (it’s one of my favorite cities) and meeting up with a few running buddies there.
I runfess that dating in 2019 is exhausting
Nothing to do with running, but I’m so over dating. You would think it would be easier now with all of the online apps and websites, but I think that makes it harder. Combine that with guys that have the maturity level of a 5 year old and it can get to be super frustrating. I posted the below on my Instagram stories earlier this week and I stand by it, lol.
I runfess that I’m looking forward to trying my new Turtle Gloves!
As a BibRave PRO I get the opportunity to try out different products. I just received the Turtle Gloves in the mail yesterday and can’t wait to try them out on my outdoor runs over the next few weeks. These are mid-weight fleece gloves that convert easily from mittens to fingerless gloves. I have a feeling these will be perfect for me because sometimes my hands overheat when I wear gloves too long but having the fingerless option will be helpful.
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
I’m also linking up for Friday Five 2.0 with Lacey and Meranda from Fairytales and Fitness.
Do you have anything you want to runfess for February?
