Weekend recap/weekly goals Dec 23-29

Good morning folks!!  Merry Christmas Eve eve!!

Mother Nature decided that we needed a winter storm to usher in winter this past weekend. We had an ice storm. It was not as bad as the 2 previous ice storms that hubs and I have encountered as we didn't loose power. I was scheduled to run 10 miles Saturday but I still wasn't feeling well and it was cold/rainy. I opted to stayed home and cross train instead. We also got all of the Christmas presents wrapped so that was a bonus!!

It was cold but dry yesterday so I decided to get the miles done! We drove to Tulsa. Hubs dropped me off at 21st street. I ran north to SW Blvd, then turned around and ran south as far as I could. I back tracked a couple of times to get 10 miles, but my watch ended up with 9.3 I guess I must have forgotten to restart it at some point. Sweet hubs waited for me in the car. He moved from 21st street to 41st then went on to 56th so that I had my own pace car, sag wagon, and moral support/water stop!!  Kudos to him for being such a good sport!! It was a difficult run for me, but I'm glad I got it done!

After my run, we ate lunch then we did some last minute Christmas shopping! Everyone needs new pj's for Christmas, so I splurged on some new pajama pants for me and could not wait to get home to put them on!!  I had received my Dailymile Secret Santa gift so I wore the new Brooks socks with my new pj pants.
Here's what my coach has my scheduled for this week:
Monday: Yoga for runners
Tuesday: 1:15 endurance run
Wednesday: Run if I want to/Rest/Crosstrain
Thursday: 1:15 endurance run
Friday: Runner's stretching routine
Saturday: Run for the Ranch Half Marathon
Sunday: Rest
Ok, folks. That's all I've got for now, Monday out!
Be awesome today!

    1. I'm excited! I hope our paths cross since they didn't a couple of weeks ago in STL :)

  2. Training plans for the week are taking it pretty easy, but include house cleaning for Christmas eve party at my house, and strength training. Great week for you!

    1. My coach built in a couple of rest days for me and I sure could use them! Merry Christmas!!
