Happy Friday! 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 this party started!
I runfess that I’m starting to go a little stir crazy
I’m an introvert by nature, so staying home really doesn’t bother me…but staying home since March is starting to get to me. I’m still really only leaving the house to go grocery shopping and to OTF (when I go back next week). I kind of miss strolling the aisles of Target and spending money on things I never intended on buying, lol. Same goes for browsing the aisles at Marshalls. I also miss traveling – not that I was traveling the world or anything – but I’d love to visit another state. I also wanted to go to a Yankees game this year. Anyways, these are all first world problems and not important at all in the grand scheme of things. I’m happy that I’m healthy and that my family is healthy too so I’ll keep focusing on that!
I runfess that I’m ready for Fall weather
Is it just me or has it been an exceptionally hot and humid summer? We’re currently in the middle of a 2 week heatwave and it feels like it’s never going to end. I can almost deal with the heat but the humidity makes it feel like a swamp, even super early in the morning. August is typically the hottest month of the year so I’m trying to mentally prepare for that and praying that we get Fall temps starting in September!
I runfess that I’m taking another staycation at the end of August
So….basically my job wants to make sure that everyone is using their vacation time (even if technically no one is traveling anywhere, lol). They have asked us to try to use up 40% of our vacation time by the end of August. This makes sense to me since they 1) want to make sure employees do not get burnout and 2) don’t want everyone out at the same time over the holidays in December. This actually works out perfect for me since I never take time off in December anyway. Maybe I’ll venture out of the house for a day trip this time, lol.
I runfess that I would recommend the Peloton Power of Sleep Program
I’m almost done with the 2-week Power of Sleep program. Overall I would say it was good. I’ve noticed what types of meditations work best to help me go to sleep. In addition, I’ve noticed that I prefer meditations with two of the instructors – it’s just something about their voice and delivery. Moving forward I’ll make sure to utilize the sleeping meditation classes every night.
I runfess that I don’t think there will be any road races this year
I should probably clarify that I mean “larger” road races – like half marathons and marathons, just because they typically have many more people. My half marathon in October has been re-scheduled to next March, which totally makes since because it’s in Philly and would probably have a few thousand runners. I think there is still a chance for local, small races (like Turkey Trots) to take place but that’s probably about it. This is why I’m confused as to why the Rock n Roll Race series still has registration open on their website for races in September/October? Those races definitely aren’t happening so why have a registration link on the website? It just seems odd.
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 Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness from Fairytales and Fitness.
Do you have anything you want to runfess for July?
