Happy Friday! Did you have a good week? Another month has come to a close. May I ask how we are already almost halfway through the year? Craziness!
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 actually purchased something based on a Facebook Ad
I know this sounds crazy, but allow me to explain. I normally scroll right by those ads but this one caught my eye. We eat a lot of melon in the summer (literally daily) – watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, etc. When I went on Amazon and saw that I could purchase this for under $10 bucks, I was sold! I welcomed this new Watermelon Slicer to my kitchen gadget family last week.
I runfess that I’m pumped about Peloton’s new Marathon training program
Peloton has done it again! Now they offer a 26.2 training program. This program features numerous runs (long run, tempo, etc) from 3 of the run instructors that have a lot of experience with the marathon distance. During the outdoor classes, you listen to the instructor talk you through the run via your headphones. Peloton even offers an 18 week training program where they map out the runs and strength/cross training classes you can take each week. Since I wasn’t planning on using a coach for my upcoming marathon training, this will be perfect for me. Of course I won’t be following it exactly (since I’ll have to add in OTF classes), but it will be a great guide.
I runfess that I’m a little nervous about starting marathon training
Although I still have a few weeks before this starts, I’m a little nervous about embarking on this yet again. This isn’t my first time at the marathon rodeo, but I haven’t trained for one in over a year (last marathon was Shamrock in March 2018). I’m trying to go into training with a positive attitude. I already know that training in the summer is going to suck so I just need to accept that and move on.
I runfess that I don’t have any race cations planned for the next few months
It feels weird, but besides a 5K race this weekend, I don’t have any races planned until October. I feel like this will probably change (I’m looking at adding a race in another new state in September), plus I would like to use a few races as long runs. It seems like all of the races that I want to do this year fall in October, and most on the same weekend, lol. Go figure! If you know of any good half marathon in September (besides RnR Philly and Surftown), please let me know!
I runfess that I’ve done a few Netflix binges recently
I’ve binge watched a few shows on Netflix over the past few weeks but I think my favorite was ‘Dead to Me’. I love Christina Applegate so I had a feeling the series would be good – and it was! It’s considered a dark comedy which is the perfect way to describe it. I can’t wait until season 2! You can watch the trailer here.
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 May?
