Runfession ONE: I hate tempo runs. I can't quite put my finger on it. It's not that we run amazingly fast, certainly it's not a sprint. It's a pace where talking in long sentences is hard and I breath very heavily. I'm pissed though because I'm ALWAYS behind the group. Not far behind, but not on their heals. What.the.hell??!?
Runfession TWO: I'm HANGRY all.the.time! Not only a little. A LOT! And, I eat horrible food. My drug of choice yesterday was a package of Swiss Miss Ho Ho's! Seriously Gina? Are you kidding me? My friends say, " welcome to marathon training." Problem is: I'm not craving good food. I want to swim in chocolate, stuff my face with lay's potato chips and drink soda! Yeah. So there's that. It's a proud moment for sure. Writing this post I'm eating a cliff bar - dreaming of what unhealthy food I can have at lunch.
Runfession THREE: I kinda like strength training. Ssshhh! Don't tell anyone. I'm developing muscles and I occasionally stand in front of the mirror and flex. OK. OK. FINE - so I do it every morning. Can't help it. I feel like Olaf in Frozen when he's so excited about his carrot nose. " It's like a little baby unicorn." Make sure you insert his crazy voice when saying it. :) I feel like my little baby muscles are there and they are finally peaking through! Yahoo!!
Runfession FOUR: I took my kids to an indoor playland on Sunday so I could blog uninterrupted. I feel guilty about this. I have so little time with them because I work full time and then I make them play by themselves? They had a blast! So did it! :) Peace and quiet to write my thoughts.
Funfession FIVE: So a few days ago, I tried to post a suprised and exhausted picture on Instagram to talk about how my trainer killed me during my workout. It was hard, but very rewarding. Today, she actually said that " noone has cried yet. " I love you Susan. You are amazing.
Anyhoo, I took the picture and then my husband reminded me how horrible it looked all day long. He was kidding of course, but it made me self conscious. Certainly it wasn't a flattering picture - but real life nonetheless. Sweat dripping from my nose, no make up and utter exhaustion.
To make light of it, we had some fun with this picture last night. I laughed so hard I cried and the sound of my laugh wouldn't even come out! So, hopefully you'll get a kick out of it too!
I just love this linkup. Make sure to visit other blogs as I will be doing the same! OH.WAIT! ONE.MORE.THING. Go to my post here to enter my Giveaway. Tiux compression socks are graciously giving one of my readers their very own pair. Hurry, it ends Sunday!!
