Enjoy the Journey

Saturday - December 14

Run
  • 59m
  • 4.50 miles
  • 13m 06s /Mi

We got about 6 inches of snow last night. I really wanted to run about 11 miles but could barely maintain a shuffling jog --- there's ice under the snow and roads are not all plowed. Enjoyed the run but could tell that an hour was going to be the limit today.

Sport
  • HIIT
  • 45m

Another HIIT workout from BodyRock. 30 sec cardio alternated with 30 seconds weight/resistance work.

Temps hit a balmy 36 this afternoon so I cut out of work early and went for a run. Felt like I was dressed about right. Last mile was my fastest, woot!

Wednesday - December 11

Strength
  • 05m

105 pulse squats

Sport
  • HIIT

Did this workout from Body Rock. This has everything --- weights, plyo, etc. For the part where she wants you to jog or jump rope in between, I ran up the basement stairs and back down.

Monday - December 9

Run
  • 24m
  • 2.00 miles
  • 12m /Mi

2 slogging miles on the mill and not a single step more

Strength
  • 10m

80 squats with 20# dumbells
10 burpees

Brrr, wind chills are going to take temps way down into single digits today. Plan to hit the treadmill at the Y on the way home.

We got quite a bit of Christmas shopping done yesterday. I'll go out at lunch again and hit the mall. Odd though, Steve and I both commented that the stores just did not seem too crazy crowded this weekend. Maybe it was our timing. We also did more online shopping this year.

Steve's daughter is due to have her second baby on the 17th. Her doctor says he'll let her go one week past her due date before inducing, which would mean the baby could be born on Christmas Eve. Katie really hopes the doctor will just go ahead and induce on the 23rd. Either way, with Steve's mom gone and a new baby, it's going to be a very different holiday.
