Happy Friday! Another month in quarantine complete. It’s crazy that this year has seemed super long and we’re not even half-way done with it yet. 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 thought I would save money during this “Stay at Home” time
When this first started in March, I was convinced that I would save so much money. While this is partially true – I haven’t spent money on clothes, gas for my car or Orangetheory since March – I have spent so much more money on Amazon and at the grocery stores. I’m also convinced that the the grocery stores have increased their prices on certain items. They definitely don’t have as many sales either. Hopefully things will even out in a few months. I think we’ll start to see normal prices once the aisles are stocked with toilet paper and paper towels again.
I runfess that I’m feeling a little uninspired to blog lately
I haven’t really felt like blogging lately because honestly I don’t have much to say. Besides the Weekly Run Down and my Tuesday Topics posts, I don’t feel like I have much to contribute. I’m sure part of it has to come from being inside most days. Maybe I’ll feel more inspired once I’m able to get out of the house more? Anyone else feeling the same way?
I runfess that I won’t be running back to OTF as soon as they open
While I don’t have the official opening date, gyms are allowed to open in CT on June 20th, so I assume OTF will open on that day or a few days after. As much as I miss it, I’m not going to rush back the day they open. Realistically, I’ll probably go back sometime in July. I know a few studios in other states have already opened back up and some of the changes include shorter classes (45 minutes instead of 60 minutes), temperature checks before class, maximum class size of 15 and wearing masks while working out. I appreciate that it seems like they are doing everything necessary to keep us safe, but I’m still a little anxious about group fitness classes right now.
I runfess that I get super annoyed when people don’t follow the rules in regards to social distancing
I know it probably shouldn’t bother me so much, but it infuriates me when I see people ignoring the social distancing recommendations. The photos from all the beaches on Monday just made me shake my head. I completely understand that people want to go out and get back to normal, but just because you’re tired of the virus doesn’t mean is miraculously went away. People behaving irresponsibility will result in another serious wave of cases/deaths in the Fall. Then there’s the people that bitch and moan about having to wear a mask in a store. Is it seriously that much of an issue? Imagine how those in the medical field feel wearing a N-95 mask for hours at a time (it literally leaves marks and bruises on their faces because it’s so tight). But you can’t wear a mask for 45 minutes at Costco? I’m always amazed at people that feel inconvenienced from the smallest thing – like seriously, grow up!
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?
