January sure has been busy around here. This month seems to be flying by and it’s already time for the January Runfessions. A fun way to share any running and fitness related thoughts you just need to get off of your mind. Thanks Marcia for hosting the linkup.
Although it’s been quite cold and on some days, gray and dreary, I still would rather get outside and get fresh air than hibernate indoors. The cold air doesn’t bother me when running and I feel like I warm up pretty quickly. I did have an issue the other day with the balaclava. I am not used to wearing them and I was finding it hard to breathe under there. I felt like I was breathing back in my own air and could not seem to regulate my breathing correctly. Ended up having to take a few walk breaks. Any thoughts on that?
I don’t normally do challenges because my workouts are kind of set but I am currently in the Peloton January challenge and a RunBet Challenge. The Peloton January challenge requires you to do one Peloton class per day every day of the month. On days that I run, I am adding in a stretch or yoga class from Peloton. I almost forgot a few times and ended up doing a restorative yoga for 10 min right before bed which I am enjoying. The hubs thinks it’s kind of weird when he walks in the bedroom and I am just lying there “all namaste”. I will be doing a full recap of the RunBet soon but it’s keeping me on my toes for sure.
I am excited for my first race of 2019 a 10K next weekend. Valentine’s Day themed -yes it’s almost February! It will be hilly and it will be cold but we will have lots of fun. Speaking of February, next Friday/Saturday is the February Ultimate Coffee Date link up. Coco and I look forward to catching up with you over coffee.
