Happy Friday! Did you have a good month? I can’t believe that July 4th is next weekend, so crazy how time is flying by! June was a strange month for me, especially this week as I recovered from surgery. Thanks so much to everyone for all your kind words – I really appreciate it! I’m going to post a blog next week detailing my experience being a bone marrow donor in case anyone is interested. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, that’s for sure!
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 running and I have hit a rough patch in our relationship
My running motivation pretty much tanked toward the end of May. In fact, my longest run since then has been around 5 miles and I 32 ran miles in June. This is probably my lowest monthly mileage in months, maybe years. I’m okay with this because I was expecting it. After training for a Spring marathon and half marathon, it was inevitable that I would need a break from high mileage. Thankfully I don’t have a Fall marathon this year so I can run just to run this summer.
I runfess that I’m not looking forward to stepping on the scale this weekend
Although I’m still on Weight Watchers, I definitely fell off the wagon this week. I have still been tracking my meals, but not making the healthiest choices. I was doing very good this month but between my trip to NOLA and then recovering from the surgery, I have wanted more comfort foods. In my defense I needed to make sure I ate hearty meals to take my pain medicine, but next week I’ll get on track.
I runfess that I have no plans for the 4th of July, and I’m fine with that!
Similar to Memorial Day, I have no plans for the 4th of July, and I’m actually so happy about that. Considering the 4th of July falls on a Wednesday, it’s hard to travel anywhere when you have to be at work the next day. I’m looking forward to a relaxing day at home with some food from the grill and a nice drink.
I runfess that you should order a Pro Compression grab bag
These grab bags come around about once a year and it’s a great deal. You can get 3 pairs of Pro Compression marathon socks for $40 with code BAG. If you don’t care about the colors or a certain design, this is a great deal since these socks usually go for $50 a pair.
I runfess that I’m not prepared for our upcoming heatwave
To be honest, we’ve had a pretty mild summer and I couldn’t be happier about that (I hate the hot weather). Well all good things have to come to an end and we’re expecting our first “heatwave” starting tomorrow and lasting through the weekend. All I can say is thank god for air conditioning! After being in NOLA for a few days, I have no clue how runners in the South deal with that hot and humid weather – it’s horrible!
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
Do you have anything you want to runfess for June?
