So I’ve been hibernating since my last post…just kidding! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I have been busy celebrating with my family and my in-laws and now I’m back at my parents’ house. I had a great Christmas and am glad the weather cooperated for all of our driving- hopefully it stays that way for my husband’s last leg of the trip back to St. Louis next weekend.
My parents don’t have wireless internet (gasp!), so blogging is a little more difficult from their desktop. Pictures will have to wait until Zach gets wireless hooked up for them this week 🙂
I’m going to do a quick re-cap of my workouts during this holiday week. Considering that I am not at my home, started a new job on Monday, and had various Christmas festivities during the week, I think I did pretty well! I don’t have a gym membership here yet, but luckily my parents have a treadmill in their basement in front of a TV. This is lucky because it was very cold and icy here in Omaha early last week, so outdoor activity was out of the question!
Sunday 12/21- ran 4.5 miles on TM (incl. warm-up and cool-down), stretched 15 min.; watched Extreme Home Makeover– this was a good treadmill show because I had to keep going to see the end result
Monday 12/22- no workout. Delivered gifts from church with my dad in approx. 0 degree weather. Ate soup and hid under a blanket afterwards.
Tuesday 12/23- no workout. Worked late (well, later than planned), husband got into town, went to dinner with a good friend in town from San Francisco
Wednesday 12/24- ran 5.5 miles on TM, 15 min. weights, 15 min. stretching; watched Love Actually on DVD
Thursday 12/25- Merry Christmas! ran 3.5 miles on TM before we headed to north of Kansas City to see the in-laws; watched A Christmas Story on TBS– I love that movie, wish I’d had time to watch more!!
Friday 12/26 – finally had a warm day!! It was almost 60*, so Zach and I went for a walk on the country roads near his parents house. I thought this would be boring, but it was actually very peaceful. The fresh air felt amazing, we walked for about an hour, which I am guesstimating to be about 3 miles. Saw several cows and horses.
Saturday 12/27- drove back to Omaha. ran 6.5 miles on TM (walked about a mile between warm-up, cool-down and a break for a cramp), stretched 15 min.; watched (can’t believe I’m admitting this) Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen on Disney. It’s always nice to see Lindsay Lohan pre-fall-from-grace.
I usually like to mix it up more than just running, but since that was my only option this week, I’m glad I got in what I could.
I’m off to spend some quality time catching up on all your lovely blogs! My Google Reader is full- I’ve missed you guys!
