Well, my vacation week is coming to an end. Time to face reality tomorrow. Wahhhh!!! I really really really really really don't want to go to work tomorrow. Sigh.
While I was off, one of the things that I did was clean out a closet, a desk, and one of the kitchen cabinets. Husband cleaned out several more kitchen cabinets. I can't say that we're quite done as there are things that need to go somewhere still, but I am happy with the results. However, I did have to envoke a new rule in the house - no more starting to clean out something until all of the stuff from the last cleaned out something have been dispositioned.
Another thing that I did, as mentioned in my last post, was run a 5K on Thanksgiving. I just now looked at the results. I was 5th of 10 in my age group. Sure, I was close to the back of the pack for the whole event, but I was dead smack in the middle for my age group. I kinda' like like that.
Black Friday was more like White Friday here. We actually got a little bit of snow, but it's gone now.
Ran/walked 7 miles easy today. I took water with me, rather than my usual Accelerade in the hydration belt. We'll pretend it was an experiment, rather than an oversight. Won't do that experiment again anytime soon, I hope. Accelerade wins over water.
Punpkin pie is evil. I'm afraid to weigh myself tomorrow. EDITED: The scale was kind to me. Amazingly, it returned a slightly smaller number once again. I am now -2.5 of my goal of -8.0.
I just officially signed up Husband & I to run the Jingle Bell 10K on Dec8th. Its a run for the Arthritis Foundation - very special to us.
Assuming I am able to complete that event, it will bring my 2007 race totals to 2 5Ks, 2 10Ks, 2 sprint tris, 2 oly tris, 2 half-marys, and one oddball - Tammy's run on Jan 1 in over a foot of snow (shortened to an 8K). I also had 2 DNS and one race registration forwarded to next year's event. Overall, I'm quite pleased.
It might not seem like much to most of you, but I need to put this in perspective.
In 2006 I finished six 5Ks and one sprint triathlon. In 2005, I finished one and only one 5K (my first!) and I learned to swim. For 40 yrs prior to that, I basically did nothing.
It's all relative. I'm planning to chalk up 2007 as a GREAT year. :)
