Wow it’s the end of June already and this month has been a doozy! (that’s the PG version fo the word I would use to describe this month). I am jumping in on the monthly June Runfessions link up to spill all that is on my mind in my running world.
I Runfess…I hate summer running
It’s no secret around here that I’ve been having a tough time running in this heat the past few weeks. I was ready to just throw the towel in last week and bail on summer running all together. You may have seen my 5 stages of summer running post that describes many of the emotions I’ve been having. Sounds like I am not the only one having a tough time of late. I am going to keep moving forward and will try to stop complaining about it.
I Runfess…I am thinking about bailing on my next tri race
I was planning on doing another sprint tri in 2 weeks. For some reason, I have not yet signed up for said tri race yet. I am loving my swim training and my long bike rides. The heat does not bother me as much on my bike and I love cycling for cross training. I am really just not enjoying the brick days and I kind of dread them each week. This sounds a little childish but here it goes: I don’t want to do the race if I am going to hate it. This may be the heat exhaustion talking here so I am going to wait another week before I decide.
I Runfess…I am embracing all the other fun summer activities
I do love summer- just not summer running. I have planned a few fun non running activities over the next week. I’ve got a kayaking date for Tuesday and a few of us signed up to do an SUP class that apparently coordinates with a live band on the shore. Should be interesting!
Thanks for listening to my June Runfessions. Other than that, all is good! What non running summer activities do you like? What do you have to Runfess this month?
