Friday Five

April runfessions

I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for some runfessions on this lovely Friday! I can’t believe that Monday is MAY (aka my b-day month!). I’m both excited for summer things and amazed that April has managed to speed by without notice!

And don’t forgetmy charity auction is LIVE. You can see the rules on bidding here and check out the goods again here!

  1.  In case you haven’t heard me shouting from the roof tops, I am on a mission to raise $2620 for Team For Kids. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will go directly to support Team For Kids and their effort to provide free or low cost health/running programs for school age children across the United States. I runfess that I’ve been feeling pretty discouraged about my progress with the charity auction…

2. I runfess that I’ve actually been enjoying running less and cycling more. And, with my recent decision to start more strength training, I’m excited to see some changes in my muscles. It’s fun to make progress in something…

3. I runfess that I’ve been pretty terrible at eating good meals lately. Yesterday I ate a big breakfast + filling lunch and was amazing at how un-hangry I felt all day. Who would have thought?! [insert eye roll here]

4. I runfess that I wish I could have a “do nothing” day where I sleep late, go for a long run, and eat delicious food all day long. I’ve found a great routine for going to the gym after work and then eat dinner and relaxing for the evening but I’m starting to feel a little burned out. It’s been over a year since my last real vacation (since moving kind of threw a kink in a relaxing Christmas break) and I am burning out…

5. I runfess that lately I’ve been enjoying more solo workouts. Typically the husband and I go to the gym together but I’ve really secretly liked that our schedules have been a little off so that I can have some zone out, dedicated “me time”…

What do you runfess?!

  1. I’ve been eating horribly and I’m realizing that I need to get out of this rut ASAP! I miss eating healthy and cooking whole meals…so that’s gonna turn around finally!

  2. I completely understand you enjoying cycling lately! I was forced to bike more and do other cross training workouts due to an injury and I actually grew to love the variety. Now that I’m training for a June half marathon, I’ve not had time for all of my other workouts besides running and I’ve been really missing it. I’ll get back to them as soon as this half is done.

    “Do nothing” days are the best!!
