Runfessions – January edition

It’s that time again…last Friday of the month so I’m joining Marcia again for another edition of Runfessions – a chance to cleanse your sweaty soul!



Runfession #1 — Cherry Blossom training was suppose to begin this week… but didn’t. I’m still in the run/walk, knee-watch phase…and right now 10 miles seems so far!

Runfession #2 — Thanks to Juno and more snow on the way today, I probably won’t be seeing too many outdoor runs in the near future. With no place to put the snow, the roads are very narrow and on some of my favorite routes, sidewalks are non-existent. The thought of treadmill-only running does not bode well for my training plans.

Runfession #3 — I have to admit I’m much happier on my strength training days vs. my run days – maybe because I feel like I’m seeing more progress.

Runfession #4 — Or maybe this should be labeled food-fession…Let’s just say I stepped on the scale recently and there are 6 pounds or so that need not be there. Time to lay off the comfort food! ‘Nuff said there.

Runfession #5 — Due to my work schedule I didn’t sign-up for the current 12-week session of my favorite Pilates barre class and I miss it terribly! I may have to break down and try the Pilates classes at my new gym just so I don’t go through complete withdrawal.

There…I feel better now! What’s your runfession?



  1. 10 miles seems SO far to me as well! And I’ve got a 10-mile race in early April I’m completely ignoring and focusing on RnRNashville instead. I agree I’m digging strength training more now too. Thanks for always linking up! : D

  2. Sometimes I like strength training days better, too!! And maybe that extra six pounds is muscle. You never know. 🙂

  3. We’ve had some of those huge snowstorms in the past and it really does make it all but impossible to find safe running space. I hope you get a week of warm temps/rain sometime soon to help it melt!

    Plenty of time to get to the needed mileage for CB. AND, it’s pancake flat, so that helps!

  4. You crack me up! Since I haven’t run in 2 weeks all of those race distances seem like they float farther and farther away. I know we will both get back there-eventually!

  5. The weather and the grey skies have left me with zero motivation to get outside for a run. I’ve been running a few miles at the gym and also lifting and I’ve forgotten how much I love weights. I hope that you’re knee is OK?

  6. I was just thinking about this…I have to do 4 before work tomorrow and I’m just so over the cold and snow!

  7. I say the extra weight is muscle! It’s what I’ve been telling myself anyway. 🙂 And, 10 miles is a lot but I’m sure you will get there!

  8. I even posted about switching things up to get serious about training, but didn’t actually do it. And today I’m spinning instead of running because it’s in the teens outside (although I WILL RUN TOMORROW <– yelling at myself).
