First Friday

Posted by Anonymous

Good mooring all!  Happy first Friday of 2014!  I hope everyone is having a great week and is looking forward to the weekend!  

So January 1st came and I new I wanted to start the year off right and get a run in that day and for as many days as I can for this entire year. 


As you have read in some of our posts lately, we are heading off to Disney next week for the Disney Marathon Weekend.  I don't want to over do things before we go but I want to continue running as much as I can so I  have decided to run easy 5ks during the week and I will get in a couple 10ks this weekend.

January 1st, I took my run outside and it was not all that enjoyable.  The paths were very slippery and uneven but I got it done.  


My sister's and I have a New Year's Day tradition (5th year in a row now) to meet for dinner.  We met at Red Lobster and I enjoyed a Shrimp Feast (and maybe a few more things on the side)!!  Don't judge


January 2nd brought us -16C/-3F weather so I decided to take my run in-doors.  


I finished of my indoor workout with a little Boot Camp Countdown workout.  I don't even know where I found this but it was really good!  It took me just under 23 minutes to complete. 


Last night's dinner was just what I needed after so many fancy meals lately.


Again I say, don't judge!!  I will get back to eating healthier next week when I am back to work. 

There we have it, so far, 2 days into the year and I am 2 for 2 with my runs.


Today, I plan on on hitting the gym again as we are at a temp of -21C/-6F.  Brrrr, too cold for this gal to be outside!

Have a great day everyone!

What are your plans this weekend?

Anyone racing this weekend?

    The Disney run- are you doing the Dopey Challenge?!! Lol, not going to lie, kind of jealous of your mac and cheese. Sometimes you just gotta have the box stuff.

  5. So exciting that y'all are headed to Disney next week - should be much warmer there!

    And - I'm happy that you did that workout!!! (

    This weekend I'm planning to take down all of the Christmas decor but things keep popping up and it is pretty much 2 days of work so....

  6. I didn't realize what a good workout it was until a couple days later. I woke up very sore!!

  7. No, I am a wimp so I am just doing the 1 race on Saturday (Half Marathon).

  8. Was it you that I got it from? I love things like that and I am going to look for more!

  9. Nice work getting runs in! Definitely no judgement on the food, it all looks amazing! I am totally a sucker for mac and cheese btw.

    Brr is right. Can I come to Florida with the 3 of you?

  10. Yes, come with us Laura!'
