WOW! Another long layoff... The holidays certainly are glorious, but it makes it WAY too easy to lose track of training!
We are back, and hoping (planning, rather) on picking up the focus again. I hate to say it, but I kind of expected to drop off my training around Christmas. We had our annual Christmas Eve party with the gang, a quiet holiday as a family, and then had my mom visit for a week between Christmas and New Years. Overall, a WONDERFUL time!
It also served as a good mental break going into training in 2010, and yesterday was an awesome restart. Good diet, good training...
-Breakfast: 2 nutri grain bars, 2 cups of coffee.
-Lunch: Can of chicken/sausage gumbo, goldfish crackers.
-Dinner: Hamburger and some Fritos.
-no snacks today (working off chocolate and beer from the break!).
-90 minutes on the bike, RPE 5, solid spinning effort, good cadence.
-30 minute treadmill run, 6.5mph.
-Lots of stretching!
Today is going to be an OUTDOOR RUN! I am excited, as it seems Seattle has dried out for about 24 hours... This afternoon we'll bundle up the munchkin and get some fresh air in the jogging stroller. It will also give me a chance to try out the new gift from SHW, a Garmin Forerunner 305!!
I lost my previous GPS unit in an unfortunate car accident (okay, I left it on the roof of my Jeep when I was driving to a bike ride and it got smashed in the street). This one has more features, is more user friendly, and is SMALL! I am stoked... And kudos again to SHW for being awesome. :-)
Here's hoping you all gave/got what you wanted to for the season, and are focused going into 2010!
