I linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions and since the Friday Five theme is of my choice this week, I also am linking up with Courtney at Eat Pray Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What, and Mar at Mar on the Run. I have been so busy all summer my blogging took a back seat, so I am glad to be linking up and connecting with you all.
I runfess….I was loving marathon training in the summer (as compared to the dead of winter). Being light out makes it so much easier to get up and out. However, taking a 2 week vacation in a hot country really threw things off. Physically and mentally it has been hard to find my rhythm since mid August. This threw things off :
I runfess…many times I have thought I must be crazy to have signed up for a second marathon in a year.
I runfess….despite points 1 and 2 above, I realize I do love the structure of a training plan. It gives me that little extra nudge to get out the door and run more regularly that I normally would.
I runfess…. I indulged on vacation. Since I have been back I have really been cleaning up my diet and I feel great. (I tried many typical Greek dishes while there)
I runfess ….I am really looking forward to school starting for my girls next week. The school year adds structure to our week that I like. Having the down time over the summer has been great but it is time.
What do you have to runfess this month ?
Are you faithfully following your training plan this summer ?
