Have you ever had a vacation and then came back and realized you need another vacation to recover? Well, that's me right now!
We had an awesome couple of weeks with the family, enjoying Christmas, Holy Family, New Years, and Epiphany. Lot's of good food and fun for everyone (even me) last week. Part of my diet last week was to eat about 2 dozen eggs and down about 10 scoops of protein powder. And last weeks training runs were just tiring! And through all the fun I lost 5 pounds over the holidays! The coach was kind to me - I could have easily been made to lose 10. I guess there is some kindness inside that Colorado Running Computer after all! The coach is an asset - I recommend one to everyone who wants to improve.
I don't make new years resolutions. I just make them when I make them. I think waiting for certain dates to start things is a little anti-awesome. And I wannabe awesome.
But what's in the cards for the next couple of weeks you ask? ... continue training, tuning, improving my fitness, running more 5ks, 10ks, maybe a few 10 milers, maybe even a half. So far I have a virtual 5k on Saturday, and I'm thinking about doing the refrigerator 8-miler in Waterloo on February 20, 2011 (guaranteed PR!).
Tomorrow I'll post a bit on my slippery ground running kit I'm trying out, plus some of my super favorite exercises for generating curses and swearing, and a scale that is being returned for a refund!
Thank you everyone for the awesome gifts, and wishes. I wish you all a awesome New Year of hard-fought victories and difficult challenges that make you drink the juice of life from every day!!!!
