January 2018 Runfessions

Every time I come to write these Runfession posts, I’m blown away that the month is wrapping up and a new one is starting. I still feel like it’s early January and I’ve lost a week’s worth of time!

Runfessions are shared on the last Friday of the month and is hosted by Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice! You can check out her blog and read about lots of other blogger’s Runfessions in her link up!

January Runfessions

Runfession #1 – I haven’t run in along time and haven’t felt the desire to run! Eeek! That felt good to get off my chest. I mean, I’ve wanted to get a run in all week but the desire to actually go for a run is non existent…until last night. Well if I am really runfessing….I only ran last night because I have physio today and I wanted to see how my hip/glutes would react. I’m happy riding my bike on the trainer, skiing with my kids and taking a few extra rest days in a row to just relax! Running motivation is low.

Runfession #2 – I want to get a road bike! Good lord, what have I done by writing that down on my blog! Though I love my trail bike that I have and it’s probably all I need, I’m tempted to start riding on the road more come spring/summer. Honestly, I have no sweet clue if I’ll actually get a road bike but I want one, ha!

Runfession #3 – I love running outdoors in the winter – specifically on the trails with Carmacks – but I’m 110% unmotivated to run outside in the winter at night time this last month. It’s not the cold or even the ice under foot, I just have zero motivation to do it. Maybe it’s because I’m not training for anything or really running all that much….or that I have a treadmill in my warm basement. I dunno!

Runfession #4 – Being a runner, you usually have a few races in mind or have at least registered for a race in the coming year. Though I have once race on my plan, I haven’t registered or even looked at other races. I just really want to sort out my hip/glutes and oblique problems before I fork over money that might go to waste.

Runfession #5 – I would like more snow! I know, some of you aren’t a fan of me now but we like to play in it, ski in it, snowshoe in it and well……….there is only a slight dusting down. If it could just snow 5cm each night for a week, we’d get enough accumulation to play in the snow yet still have school on and safe roads. Just sayin’!

I also runfess that I’m not making any 2018 goals for the year…just not feeling it. However, I’m going to continue to make monthly goals. I’ll blog about it at some point. Happy Friday folks!

Can you believe it’s the end of January already?

Have any runfessions you want to share?

Love or hate snow?
