It’s the last Friday of the month already so I’m going to give RUNfessions a try!
I set a goal to run 1000 miles for 2017 and I RUNfess I am seeing that goal slipping through my fingers.. or toes lol. I ran 62 miles in January and so far for the month of February… 50 miles. Aaah!! A week ago I came down with a bad case of strep throat so I had to take off a few days which also cost me some mileage. Yes, I RUNfess I just want to run and get plenty of sleep. I feel like I’m still catching up on all the sleep I lost while my son was sick. He has been sick off and on since before Christmas! Is Kindergarten over yet?
I also RUNfess, I’ve been cheating on running with walking. I must say going to Jeff Galloway’s running school last month was the best thing I ever did. I’ve been walking and running the whole month of February and my fatigue is getting so much better! I finished a half marathon this month using his run/walk method. I ran/walked the entire race running 2 minutes and walking 30 seconds. Sure, my time was slower, but it was so hot y’all. I was so happy to finish in 2:28:57. Jeff Galloway said I would pass so many people using the walk breaks. I RUNfess I wasn’t quite sold on his method, but it is actually working for me! I can run in the cold and the HEAT and feel great! It truly is a miracle how much better I feel! I RUNfess, I smiled during this whole half marathon, the Mississippi River Half in Greenville. It will go down as one of my favorite half marathons. I also RUNfess, I thought this was Half Marathon number 16… nope, it was number 15. Oops. My face is red, but I’m feeling great here at mile 9! Thank you Jeff Galloway!
I RUNfess I think I’m ready to sign up for my second marathon. It’s been 2 years and I have the desire, but have not seemed to be able to hit the resister button. I signed up for the Destin Marathon and had to drop half a year ago. I signed up for the Dopey Challenge and couldn’t go. I didn’t get all the training done I needed plus I got sick before it was time to go. I RUNfess, I am afraid something else will happen if I commit again. I don’t want to drop the distance or not be able to go which seems to happen a lot in this season of my life.
What do you have to RUNfess for this month? Has February been good to you? It’s been great and not so great, but March madness is coming. Eeeek!! I’m linking up with Marcia for this month’s RUNfessions! Happy Friday friends!
