I’m actually afraid to say it out loud, but I think Spring has finally sprung here in the Midwest! What a winter we have had. Lots of gray and gloomy skies, but at least we haven’t dealt with what many on the coastal states have endured. March seemed to drag on, but here we are on the last Friday of the month, and that means it’s time once again to enter the runfessional! I’m linking up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice for another Runfessions session!
I have to runfess, March was not a good month for running or working out for me. I wimped out on the days I had time to run because it was just too. damned. cold. It was a busy month for me in terms of work and other obligations, and I simply didn’t get much done.
As I mentioned previously, at the end of February I signed up for a year of unlimited online yoga. I have to runfess, so far I’ve done one session. And that was probably three or four weeks ago. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. Maybe if I set some reminders for myself, I will make it more of a routine.
I runfess that I have a half marathon coming up in just over three weeks and, well, see Runfessions number one and two. The problem with me of course, is that I really don’t care about time. I just like doing these races and finishing them. It’s actually nice going into these races with such low expectations!
I must runfess, I felt bad the day of the Chicago Shamrock Shuffle for not running it. For God’s sake, my 70-year old next-door neighbor did it! If nothing else, we could have carpooled! I seriously considered it, even the week leading up to the race, but with the temperature predicted to be in the upper 20s/low 30s, yeah…see Runfession number one.
Last, I runfess that as of this year, we are officially Chreasters in our house. You know…the people who only attend mass on Christmas and Easter? With the kids out of the house and no one around to
call us out on it set a good example for, well, we have been slacking in a major way. And this year I have to work on Easter Sunday, so does that mean I’m only a Chr?
How has your month been? Do you have anything good to runfess? What does your Spring race calendar look like?
