December 30, 2011

Wow.  I can't believe this year is almost over!

We had a great xmas - probably should post some pics.  I haven't even downloaded them to my computer yet.  I'll put that on my list.  But until then, I do have a picture of my oh-so-fabulous new running shirt that I got from my hubby for xmas:

Isn't it bad-a$$!?!?  I'm in love with it!  Ok - this isn't the one he actually got me, and I actually like the one he picked better, but I needed a different size and a different design... different design due to bellybutton issues that have haunted me since having 3 kids.  (sigh)  But I can't wait to wear this for my next cold weather run!!

I wish I would blog as much as I **think** about blogging.  I get so many great ideas to blog... things I want to say... how I want to say it... and then by the time I sit down - or actually remember that I STARTED a blog - I've lost it.

And when do I get the majority of my thoughts?  Running of course.

Today's run was awesome!  3.8 miles in the freakin' wind!  I'd rather run in the rain then wind gusts.  Talk about resistance training.  Oh, and if you're wondering, sniffing and taking a gasp for air AT the same time = massive choking <-------- that's what happened to me today.  On a lighter side, while I was running, I caught a glimpse of my fists in front of me and giggled - think gopher in Caddyshack - that's about how much my arm swing is.  Need to work on that.

So I padded my training by a week because with my crazy life, something will get in the way between now and April 28th and I will have to revise my days.  Well, today, I was looking and counting the weeks again, and I think I padded it TWO weeks.  Ugh.  See?  I can't even start when I'm supposed to.  So, I've emailed Jason (running coach) to see what (two) weeks I should repeat.  So now I made my training 19 weeks.  Nice job Andrea.  Oh - and with that padding, I scheduled my first EVER long run on Sunday - New Year's DAY.  But if history repeats itself over the past few years, we'll be in bed way before the ball drops.
