February Runfessions

February is flying by and it’s already the last Friday of the month, which means it’s time to come clean with some Runfessions! Be sure to check out what our host Marcia and others are confessing!

I’m trying my best to follow the chiro’s orders of no running this week, which has been extremely hard given Mother Nature’s sudden spring preview. I runfess that I have twice laced up my running shoes, but I held off. Whether I make it through this weekend is a tough call…

And speaking of the spring preview, I runfess that I’d be perfectly happy for this little weather trend to continue. While it has been a mild winter by New England standards, I have just had zero desire to deal with the cold this year. And now that we’ve had a taste of spring, I just can’t go back!

Trainer Stacy, who I’ve been working with for a while is taking a new job, and her new gym isn’t even remotely close. Without her to kick my butt…push me, I gymfess that I’m worried my gym time intensity will slack off.

Clearly my lack of running is not stopping me from buying new running gear. I runfess that I may have done a little shopping with Skirt Sports…I may need an intervention!

(By the way if you want to join me in my madness, use code 1SSCAPT20 to save 20 by 3/31 and save 20%)

So c’mon share…what do you runfess?

Hitting the Training Reset Button

It's time to hit the reset button... My little slip during a run last month did more than just tweak things. And, while I've been able to eek out some runs, it's been inconsistent at best...and with some significant pain at worst. No bueno. … [Continue reading]

Weekly Wrap – Embracing the mill

Happy Sunday! As I type this, the wind is picking up and the snow is falling. The second significant snow storm in just 4 days. School's already been cancelled for tomorrow, and I'm trying to re-configure my work day. But before I get to … [Continue reading]

Two steps forward, One step back

It's just been one of those weeks... Monday - More time with my new BFF, aka the Arc Trainer, but I did get outside for a brisk walk for the Winter Challenge. Oh, and day 9 of the 10 x 10 plank challenge. Tuesday - Work and family schedules … [Continue reading]

February Coffee Date

Wowza what a week it's been! I'm so happy to see the weekend and have a chance to exhale. It's a good time to sit back and catch up over coffee, so I'm joining Coco and Deborah for the Ultimate Coffee Date! If we were having coffee together, I’d … [Continue reading]

Monthly Rewind – January edition

Warning: Frustrated Runner Ahead

Let me just get this out there...this was not a pretty week from a training standpoint. My run in the rain on Tuesday included slipping on an oil slick in the road - while I didn't go down, I ended up gimpy.  A cranky left knee meant there was no … [Continue reading]
