Mid-December and I'm still wearing shorts to run in…amazing.
The weather has been really mild lately here in Southwestern Ontario and I've been taking advantage of it…I ran outside in my shorts on Sunday and again on Monday. This past weekend was a bit easier as there wasn't really a long run on the schedule, just a 10-miler on Saturday and again on Sunday. I have one more long run of 16 miles on the Hansons plan this coming weekend and then it is time to ease back a bit and head towards taper time.
I've been run-streaking lately too, currently sitting on 24 straight days of 10K or more and 36 of 37 days as well…pretty much since we got back from Disney the beginning of Novemeber. The legs have handled it well and seem to bounce back for every run…very few runs have started out on tired legs, which I'm finding amazing. My pace hasn't suffered at all either, so maybe I really am getting stronger. This plan has been working wonders for me, but it sure is a big time commitment.
I took yesterday off work as I had one last vacation day I had to use up…Michelle was off as well so we tried to get as much of our Christmas shopping done as possible. We crossed almost everything off our list so overall I think it was a success. Nice to feel like things are coming together for Christmas!
How's your Christmas shopping going?
