January Runfessions

Happy Friday!

It’s the last Friday of the month so, of course that means it’s time to share some runfessions! Thanks to Marcia for this always entertaining linkup!


Runfession: I have just a few days left in this month’s Winter Challenge, and I runfess that I’m ready to be done. I have so enjoyed the camaraderie of the other women on the BGR team, but I’m just not a streaker.

Runfession:  I’ve been a little…shall we say cranky since my slip on the oil slick. With the strength work I’ve been doing I was feeling pretty strong, and so this setback feels a little deflating.

Runfession: On the brighter side, spending more time in the gym cross training means I’ve been witness to a whole new group of gym characters! I confess it is pure entertainment and does make the time go by – though I wish I could unsee the older gentleman  who insists on wearing sheer tank tops (just no!)…and can someone please explain to me why 20-something guys think jeans are workout wear?

Runfession: It’s only January and I already may have to alter my race calendar. Family schedules are conspiring against me, and short of cloning myself I may end up having to take a pass on next week’s 5 miler. Luckily I had procrastinated registering so I won’t be out any money.

Runfession: I have fallen hard off the early morning workout wagon. It’s just been way too easy to just hit the snooze …ok 3 times…and then there’s no time to workout before the getting the kids to school, work, etc. But I dislike the feeling of trying to jam a workout in late in the day, so it’s time to chase down that wagon and climb back on.

  1. For a non-streaker you’ve done a great job! I runfess that I have failed to keep up with my daily yoga challenge and I’m a little nervous about increasing my interval run this weekend.

  2. Ack. There are some things you just can’t un-see no matter how much you want to! I hope you’ve recovered from that fall. I’m afraid to sign up for more races because work things may come up, but I need to just do it and deal with it later if I haveto.

  3. Oh yes, my retinas are damaged by some of the stuff I’ve seen at the gym. Let’s not even talk about the old guys at the pool and in the hot tub. I have a tri in May and a race in June that I’m holding my breath about. Those months are crazy busy.

  4. It’s easy to fall off the early morning workout wagon! I always have good intentions to get up and run and then I end up turning off my alarm!

  5. Haha, I like that meme “I jumped” off the wagon!
    I can SO relate to the characters at the gym. That could be an entire blog post on its own! Oooh, there’s a new idea for ya!

  6. January is tough seriously the fact that we can all hang on is admirable in my book! Just keep moving forward

  7. Hahaha! Old guys in sheer tanks! This cracks me up! I managed a gym for a couple of years and trust me …I’ve seen it all!! I even witnessed a guy lift his shirt and “strum” his abs like a guitar while admiring himself in the mirror! lol Gym people are interesting folks!

  8. I don’t go to a gym, but if I did I’d probably spend too much time people-gauking (and rolling my eyes) and not get anything constructive accomplished. I didn’t runfess this…but I have been getting into a nasty routine of waking up early, then simply “lounging” in bed for much longer than necessary….

  9. I’m sorry that fall threw you off your mojo. Hopefully you’ll get back in the groove soon! The streak sounded really cool but I’m with you…I’m not really into streaks….I was doing one with City Fit Girls and then I realized it was more work than I wanted to do, lol.

  10. I used to be a diligent early morning runner. Now I wait until about 10 am to get a run in. I kinda like it better. 🙂
