December Runfessions

I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  I can’t believe that December is pretty much in the books, let alone 2016!  I have a few things on my mind to Runfess…

  1. I have really enjoyed my runs during the marathon training cycle… but to tell you the truth, I am really looking forward to the taper.
  2. I am getting my sleep!  I have my jawbone up programed to remind me at 8:30 to start getting ready for bed, lately… I’ve been anxiously awaiting the reminder, and a couple times have actually found myself in bed before it went off. 
  3. After our cold snap in mid-December, I got a little concerned that I only had 4 pair of tights… I may have ordered a some more Spandits!tights (with a pair of shorts mixed in for good measure. 
  4. Of course since that cold snap, it’s been anything but cool here in Houston… I have to admit with marathon day looming, I have been stalking the 10 day forecast for a hint of what to expect, I know it doesn’t do any good, and it is longer than 10 days out… but I can’t help myself.
  5. Expecting the worse for weather (hot & humid)… I may or may not have placed another order for more Spandits! of the short variety… I think I have a problem…

What do you have to runfess?


I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup and with Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions.

    Hah! I always think I need more clothes for the new season since I’ve forgotten all I have. We’ve had a few cold days here. Good luck with the weather!

    You can never have too many clothes…especially tights! Of course, I’m in Iowa, so tights are kind of am on-going necessity this time of year. And, on occasion, I do pull out a favorite pair from the bottom of the stack and discover the elasticity has gone AWOL….so it’s best to have some extras ready and available. I also look forward to the taper (especially when there’s a 26.2 looming). Good luck!!

    I got some fleece running tights for Christmas and haven’t worn them on a cold run yet but i’m sure they’ll come in handy soon enough. Good luck at your upcoming race. Marathon training feels so good when it’s over!

      I was wanting to wear the mamba capris… but alas, I think the weather will be too warm, time for plan b (which I haven’t come up with yet). 🙂

    Ah your tights are SO CUTE!
    I’m with ‘ya on the sleep – I’m falling in bed around 9pm every night. I remember fighting my mom to avoid naptime as a toddler. Why??? Sleep is awesome!
