How can it be the end of September already?! Luckily I have until next weekend to get ready to host the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up again–please mark your calendars and plain to join Deborah and me as we catch up over coffee. Today it’s time to share our monthly Runfessions. Make sure you give an extra-special shout out to our host Marcia for her great Berlin Marathon last weekend!
I runfess that I was not inspired by this motivational poster in the Marriott hotel gym.
Is jogging really what we aspire to?
I runfess that I washed my HyrdaQuiver and Nathan for the first time ever last weekend–and I’ve had both for years.
I’ve always air-dried them between uses ….
I runfess that while I do think spending long hours standing in dress shoes is more to blame for my PF than running, I have not been stretching my tight calves or foam rolling like I should. Now that the injury is undeniable, I’ve broken out all the recovery tools in an effort to nip this in the bud.
Do you have this particular
torture recovery device?
I runfess that after missing OTF for two weeks, I wasn’t really looking forward to getting up at 4:15 to make my 5 am class. When my PF felt much better after my treatment Monday (stim on my calves and cupping on my foot) but reemerged towards the end of the day Tuesday, I decided to play it smart and cancel my class. I runfess that I wasn’t too sad about turning this first alarm off!
As if 4:40 is that much more civilized …
I runfess that I am nervous about the century ride we are doing on Sunday. Even at a 15 mph pace, 100 miles will take almost 7 hours! Of course, we will be stopping at all the rest stops, so the whole ride probably will take us at least 8 hours. I’ve enjoyed hearing about how Holly and Teresa made it through a #holottamiles last weekend!
What better way to spend your anniversary?
How frequently do you wash your hydration pack?
