Holiday Routine Buster

I do have to say, the last 10 days has completely kicked my behind. My schedule has been all out of whack with the holiday hustle and bustle...running has been a hit and miss event while I grasp for any activity at, DVDs, anything to keep me active. Now that Christmas is over...the routine hits hard and heavy. I'm spending this next week with heavy indoor strength and stretching before I hit the pavement hard on the 5th for the first "official" training run. The past 6 weeks or so have been gearing me up for the heavy training.

Training Update

Running in 40 degree weather is definitely not my forte. I am not fond of running in multiple layers nor having to carry tissue to wipe my nose while running. One thing I am finding...the colder weather is helping my time. I think I know I have to keep moving to stay warm and since I want to get back inside, my pace is quicker. Hopefully, I can get back to 5 days a week and my long runs soon. Yet for now, I'm taking the time I can get and any running is better than the couple of weeks I took off around Thanksgiving.

Training Update

Weeks 5 and 6 have not gone as planned. Thanksgiving, cold weather and the impending anniversary of my stepbrother's death has really thrown me for a loop. I'm taking some time off, just a few days, really. Hoping by Sunday, I can get my head swiveled back on straight to make it for at least a long jog.
