Seriously, I feel like I’ve forgotten what it’s like to run 5 or 6 days a week. Now it seems like I’m running 5 or 6 miles a month. Sigh.
Runfession #1: I think I ran fewer than 50 miles in June – 30 of those miles were at Ragnar. That’s right – more than 75% of my miles were run in one 36 hour period.
Runfession #2: I was lucky in that my foot did not hurt when I ran at Ragnar, but I must runfess that I would have run my miles anyways. Thankfully, an amazing friend set me up with a pain preventing protocol (seriously, I’ve never spent so much time icing, massaging, rubbing essential oils, foam rolling, etc after a run in my life) and I was able to keep the pain to a dull roar when walking and it didn’t hurt to run.
Runfession #3: I have a half marathon this weekend. I haven’t run since Ragnar. I’m sure the race will go great. (Or not, but whatever.)
Runfession #4: It’s killing me to have two months in a row where I did not run 100 miles. But to be honest, I haven’t even tracked my miles since mid May. I need to use my Garmin and at least get those miles in or I will be really sad in December when I miss 1000 for the year by just a few miles.
Runfession #5: I really really miss running. I have to get this problem resolved. Thanks to Faster Way to Fat Loss workouts and watching what I eat, I’m managing to stay in a good place physically. But man, my family is ready to give me away. Not running makes me not the awesomest person to be around.
