August Runfessions

I’ve missed the past couple of Runfession Fridays, but I’m happy to be linking up with Marcia today! Time to cleanse my sweaty soul. Who’s in?


Runfession #1 – My running is stressing me out! While I am thrilled to be running again, both my progress and my pace are slow and I’m feeling like the calendar is my enemy – 63 days til RnR Philly.

Runfession #2 —  The recent killer humidity (like 97%) has pushed me off the early morning run bandwagon and back into the gym. Everyone has their breaking point and 97% by 6 a.m. is mine!

Runfession #3 — The gym has been uber-quite lately and I must admit I miss the gym crazies.

Runfession #4 — I mentioned the other day how much I’m enjoying my new FitBit, but I have to say I’m a little horrified at my low step count on non-running days. With my hectic work schedule of late, I am clearly sitting in front of my computer far too much.  Nothing like those little glowing numbers staring you in the face for some extra motivation – must.move.more.

OK – now it’s your turn. What are your runfessions?



  1. I too have beelined to the mill on days that were just too humid. No shame! I’ve been wearing a HRM instead of targeting a pace. In the heat especially, my heart is working SO much harder for such little output pacewise, it really makes running a LOT more enjoyable, Thanks so much for linking up!

  2. The humidity is still pretty rough but I think we only have a few more weeks to go before it gets better.

  3. Oh, my step count on non-running days is scary. I am trying to get up more, but by the afternoon I get into “sit here until I get this work done” mode.

  5. My Fitbit numbers are very low on non-running days. Friday? Mine was a pathetic 3000. But, we’ve got to rest, right? Where I live, the humidity is a way of life for about 6 months. I’m so over it at this point!!!

  6. There is no shame in hitting the gym when the weather gets too rough!! I’m the same with my steps…I’m finally moving to my office job and I’m worried I won’t stay active enough!

  7. After a week break from the humidity, it’s back and nasty again! Ugh! I’ve had my Fitbit since June and I’m equally addicted. I love how on running days I hit 10,000 steps before 6;30 AM! 🙂 But those other days…

  8. I don’t blame you on retreating to the gym. The humidity has been awful here too!

  1. […] that last one is the key. I admitted in my runfessions that my running is stressing me out. And, when I stopped to think about that, it is insane to me […]
