In some ways December has been a very long month and in some ways it has just flown by. It’s time for one of my favorite monthly linkups posts, December Runfessions. The perfect time to get all of our running and fitness thoughts off of our minds.
I Runfess…I have not done much running at all this past week while away with my family in Aruba. I had decided that I would use this week to let a few little aches and pains heal so that I would be ready to start my running fresh in January. So other than my little beach sprint the other day, I have been walking a ton and using the elliptical everyday. I also Runfess that it has not been as bad as I thought it would be. (Updated last night-I can’t wait to run on Sunday when I get home)
I Runfess…I am not really sure which races that I want to sign up for yet in 2018. I know the Cherry Blossom 10 miler will be my priority the first quarter. I need to decide which tri races I would like to do. I am hoping to be strategic in my race planning this year.
I Runfess…I have not been swimming for over 3 months! I finally got into the pool in Aruba this week and realized that I am going to have a lot of catching up to do. I also remembered that I signed up for an indoor tri in 3 weeks. Thankfully it is a short 10 min indoor pool swim and very low key. January goals indeed!
I Runfess…I think I am still searching for the perfect running shoe. I have been liking the Mizuno Wave Rider 21 the past few months but not sure if it is the shoe for longer distances. I am hearing a lot about the Adidas Boost shoe. Maybe I should give that a go?
I Runfess…As much fun and relaxing as vacations are, I am looking forward to getting home and getting back on track with my eating and exercise program. I am signed up for Laura’s Fit & Fueled nutrition course starting next week and I am interested to soak up any bits of helpful wisdom she may have for me. I am also signed up for Amanda Tress’ program of intermittent fasting. Something I said I would never do. More on that to come!
Wow I sure did have a ton to get off of my chest today! Thanks for checking out my December Runfessions. Anyone tried the Adidas Boost shoe? Have you already figured out your 2018 race schedule?
