Heeeelllllloooooo everyone! Happy Monday and Happy Christmas week. Are you all ready?!?
This is my favorite time of year. I love decorating, I love celebrating and I love that we end the year on such a high note. In a time where everyone is constantly rushing, stressing, etc it is so NEEDED to just stop and wrap up the year in a positive way. It’s the best! Looooooove it.
The past week has been kind of a whirl wind tying up loose ends in the office. I have been working very long hours and as a result my running has been lacking a bit. My hubs and kids brought me coffee last Friday and it made my day. Loved getting that distraction in the midst of chaos! Right now we are in the middle of Relative Performance Reviews (RPRs) and I want my team’s hard work to be recognized. That’s just how I roll. Taking it to the mattresses baby.
Sooooo last week’s workouts ended up looking like this:
Monday: 8 miles
Tuesday: 6.3 miles
Weds: Vegas- nada
Thursday: 1 mile, 20 min spin, 1.15 miles, weights
Sat: 4.4 miles that were AWFUL. Just plan bad.
20.85 total miles. Eeeek. I guess it’s better than nothin. How did I make up for it?
Sun: Walked a zillion miles at…DISNEYLAND!
There is nothing like taking a break from the crazy and just enjoying Christmas at Disneyland.
My husband proposed to me in front of this castle. In front of everyone. Talk about feeling like a real life princess. I know, you are barfing a little right now. That’s ok, I’ll take the pukey moment. Needless to say this is my favorite spot in the whole park!
H-man was super irritated that I wanted to take ANOTHER picture when all he wanted to do was go on the Buzz Lightyear ride. How dare I waste one more second on a photo? DUH.
One person who didn’t mind photos?
Little Cinderella lets me take pictures all day long. She is practicing for when she is famous. Or a beauty queen. OR both.
So now you have an idea of where I have been and what I have been up to! I am so looking forward to this last week of hard work to get a few days off to enjoy time with the fam.
Running wise I took a rest day today but I really need to get back at it with Carlsbad being about 5 weeks away. I have pretty much decided that I am going back to training on the Run Less Run Faster plan for the next couple of months. With my schedule it will still help me get in the quality runs while avoiding injury. We all know how my PF loves to try to make a come back.
Anyone have any exciting plans this week? New Years? Races?
IF you haven’t signed up to participate in an event that will get you active in 2012 what are you waiting for?!? If I can drag my sorry butt out of bed at 4:15 in the morning you can too. No, it’s not always fun but it’s worth it! Come on peeps: 2012 IS YOUR YEAR TO COMMIT TO GET FIT!
