The good news is I got some things done.
As I mentioned, I took down the tree and put away all the ornaments and decorations.
Putting Christmas stuff away isn't quite as fun as getting it all out...
Clyde lounged while I did all the work. Lucky dog.
After we got that done, I decided it was time to get some exercise.
First I wanted a snck and decided to try out my new apple contraption.
My apple was a little uneven and I ran into a little trouble...
But I made it work...
I had it with some PB for protein.
It was kind of a cold day, but I bundled up and took Clyde for a long walk.
This is my "I would rather be running" face.
I was determined to get my legs moving in some way, even if I had to hold back on running.
Clyde was good company and pretty much sprinted the whole way.
Being the running dork I am, I still strapped on the Garmin and kept track of our time and distance. We did 3.43 miles in 1 hour and 3 minutes. I'll take it. I felt great to be out there even if I wasn't doing my 8 mile run.
I had a late lunch of nachos. Exciting, I know.
And later I had this for a snack.
Banana, raspberry softserve with dark chocolate chunks and some chocolate syrup on top. MMMM :)
I had this while watching Inception.
It was a weird movie, but good.
Dinner was pasta with veggie crumble "meat" sauce.
And a Magic Hat brew.
Greg and I Skyped for a while, and then I called it a night.
Today was pretty uneventful as well. I did an ab workout in the morning, made a calendar on Snapfish (I had a Groupon to use), went to the grocery store, and watched some movies. I'd planned on meeting a friend in the afternoon, but she had to cancel :(
I watched Spirit of A Marathon, after hearing about it on many other blogs.
It was really, really good. I loved that the movie follows marathoners that are all so different. Some of the elites, first timers, and people trying to qualify for Boston. It was inspiring, yet sort of frightening. I definitely cringed as one guy had to drop out of running the marathon when he got a knee injury. Luckily my injury doesn't seem to be a deal breaker and I believe that the rest is helping. I was excited, but I also questioned my training and wondered if my endurance has been compromised. Have I done enough??
I guess I won't know til next weekend.
Congrats to all my friends who ran in the Disney half and full marathon this weekend! You guys are an inspiration :)
