I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We've been playing a lot of Mah Jong as a family, which is a tradition at our house for this time of year. But I would have to say that my most cherished Christmas memory from this year would have to be when my 13yr old daughter said grace before the Christmas meal. It was a beautiful, heartfelt blessing that almost brought a tear to my eye. Even though the teen years can be 'trying', I am really enjoying watching my kids develop into the distinct individuals that they are becoming.
Santa brought me a Garmin 205; I can already tell that I am going to have fun with this new gadget. If anyone can suggest some training analysis software that is better than what it comes with, please let me know.
I started feeling motivated to get moving again after being mostly lazy last week. I ran 4.8 miles on Christmas afternoon with my husband while the turkey was cooking. Yesterday I did some core and strength work in the morning and went on a 12.4 mile bike ride in the afternoon. This morning I was in the pool at 6am for 1750.
Plans through Friday: Repeating the 4.8 mile loop later this afternoon (and compare to Christmas day run... oooh...ahhh...data...*drool*). Spinervals and more core/strength work on Thursday. 2250 swim and 6mi run Friday.
Oh, and apparently I have created a substance potentially harder than diamonds which is now stuck to the bottom of our 5qt stock pot. Cool, huh?
