It’s that time of the month again – time to confess all of our running/fitness sins with Marcia over at Marcia’s Healthy Slice. I must runfess that I have been meaning to write more than twice a month for a while now, but I’m finding that I’m definitely suffering from pandemic brain. I only have so much focus in any given day and I’m pretty much done by the time I actually have time to write a post…
I must runfess that I ran both a 50K and a marathon this month and still only barely managed to break 100 miles. I was horribly undertrained, so “ran” might be an exaggeration. I will post an actual recap soon, but let’s just say I’m happy to be done and hella surprised that I was not sore after either race. I did, however, manage to end up with 3 black toenails.
I must also runfess that despite running all the miles for Marine Corps, I have not actually found my love of the long virtual race. I have one more half marathon that I’ve signed up for and then I think I’m going to spend the rest of the fall trying to pick up my pace.
I must also runfess that I’m still having high hamstring issues. Running isn’t the cause – sitting on my dining room chairs seems to be the issue. I’ve started sitting on the couch to work, but that comes with another set of difficulties. Thankfully, I purchased one of those percussion guns (affiliate link) and if I use it regularly, it really makes a difference. Now if my kid could just go to college so I could use the desk in the “office” (AKA my fitness room), I’m sure I could finally get healed.
