March Runfessions



Happy Friday.  How did it get to be the last day of March already... it sure did fly by.  I'm ready to head into April, but first I have to come clean with my March Runfessions.

I RUNFESS...

I bought a new pair of running shoes.  Did I need them?  No.  When Amazon announced they were increasing donation % for Amazon Smile to 5% for a day, I had to think of something to purchase, shoes came to mind.  I got a pretty new pair of the Altra Torin (I got it a little bit below retail price).  On this one... I'm blaming the dogs (my charity is All Border Collie Rescue, the rescue organization that we got our pups from).

I took a week off running.  Do I feel guilty?  Nope.  After my last half marathon, Seabrook Lucky Trails, I was sore.  I don't know if it was due to a different running surface, my shoes, the awful humidity, hydration, or just not moving around enough afterwards.  So, the week after I took the week off from running, I survived.

I've been skimping on my required amount of sleep this month, and it's all because of March Madness.  Seriously, why do they schedule games so late on a "school night"? I'm pretty bummed out that my team lost in the elite eight match-up... but, I'll still be watching the rest of the games and cheering on UNC (Go Roy)!

I had wanted to switch up my running days so that I could have a weekend day off (i.e.; pajama day).  It's sort of working, but not really.  I like running four times a week, but fitting in 3 runs during the week plus a trip to yoga is pretty hard. I'm still in search of that elusive "day of leisure", and am thinking perhaps one a month would work great!



I'm not ready for summer.  Frankly, this winter has felt like "summer-lite" most of the time in H-town. While I do love the warmer temps, it is nice to get a little break from them, which we just haven't.  I'm a little scared at how hot it will be this summer.

What runfessions do you have?  Do you dream about a day to do absolutely nothing?  




I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup and with Marcia's Healthy Slice for Runfessions.

  1. I too would love a weekend pj day, but you're right they rarely ever happen. Shooting for one per month sounds like a good plan! No shame in resting up after your half!

  3. Ooooh love the new running shoes. Super fun colour. And I mean, it's for a good cause!
    I normally take a week off of running after a half marathon. My body & mind just seem to need the break. The most recent half I run a couple of weeks ago is the first half I didn't take a break after. Annnnnd then I took a break this week as I got horribly sick :/
    I like running 2-3 times a week as I like doing other forms of exercise almost as much as running. And I need 1 rest day a week for sure.
