Talk about how the time is absolutely flying by! I cannot believe it is Wednesday all ready! All I have to say is the weekend and this work week have kept me insanely busy!
Quick Running Recap since Friday (oh my the last time I posted! sorry family 😉
Friday ~ Nice and easy 55 minutes outside
Saturday ~ Nice and easy 50 minutes outside (45 minutes + 6×30 second striders)
Sunday ~ Awesome 13 miles group run (and to be honest it was a slower run and to be even more honest it has been much needed)
Monday ~ One hour regular run (52 minutes + 8 minutes with my pup – he loves to run so I ran back to get him for the remaining time)
Tuesday ~ Speed Workout on the treadmill (5 minutes at 7.2, 5 minutes at 7.5, 10X1 minute hard (6:00 – 5:53 minute/mile with 7:53 minute jog), regular pace until I hit 5 miles (7:47), then from mile 5 – 6 I ran 6:55 minute mile, and finished with my cool down at 7.9 to total 7.05 miles in 51 minutes. To be honest stopping the treadmill at 51 minutes was extremely tough, I was tempted to go until 55, but I wanted to get home to see my puppy.
Yoga yoga yoga
Last week I got to yoga twice (I know a lot less than the week before), but I still made it there and it is till helpful. So far this week I haven’t made it at all. My plan was to go today but something came up I need to help with and I even had to get someone to cover my first desk shift.
I am going to try and go to a new class tomorrow night. It starts at 7:35 which is late for me considering I like to be in bed by 8:30 (ha I know pathetic lol). I am definitely going to the Friday and Saturday class so I know I will get in two sessions this week.
Other Fun Stuff
Saturday was the ugly sweater party and it was a ton of fun! I made funfetti “healthy” dip with animal crackers on the side. The hosts love this dip and so I figured it would be the perfect thing to make especially since they have Christmas FunFetti mix and Stop and Shop carries Christmas sprinkles. SCORE!
I normally don’t do selfie pictures because well for some reason I just feel strange taking them; however, I had to show my family my lovely Ugly Sweater Outfit and of course I had to have a picture of it to tease the bf with later (I also made sure to find the worst picture I could…I know I’m so sweet)!
This week has been hectic at work and I don’t think I have even had a lot of opportunities to read my favorite blogs. I am looking forward to Winter Vacation so I can catch up on blogs, relax, run, see friends I haven’t seen in forever, and just enjoy my time away from the “real” world!
…Oh and I will also be starting my four weeks of different gyms for free. I think my first week will be the hot yoga studio!
Have you been to any holiday parties yet?
What are you most looking forward to this “winter” break?
