Tis the season for celebrations, and this past week came full circle.
Eager to get back to some "regular" mileage, but still in the thrones of marathon recovery, I cautiously eased back to a somewhat "maintenance" routine regarding my off-season. As most know, I have been doing the Runner's World winter streak, which commenced on Thanksgiving morning and will conclude on New Year's Day. I have been very conservative with my streaking mileage...most days running only the 1-mile minimum.
After running three easy miles last Sunday (on the treadmill, none the less), I decided it was time to start slowly adding mileage back to my runs. I do plan to end my streak on New Year's Day...and I look forward to having (and enjoying!) some non-running days back in my schedule.
That said, here's what went down this past week.
Monday's run was a 1-mile "quickie" after work. After a sub-ZERO weekend, the 20-degree temps felt tropical.
|Temps in the 20's? Yes, please!!|
|Yes to longer daylight!|
|Ahhh, no puffer vest required...|
|The moon was absolutely beautiful and so bright!|
|Myself, Barb, Rebecca, Jenn,Sarah|
|I love my Christmas red...but the green is legit, too|
|Yes, you can wear shorts in December in Iowa|
Nobody in my household is interested in helping decorate, so getting the ornaments on the main tree took a little longer than usual. I finally got all the finishing touches in place last weekend.
|I LOVE me some red!|
|Isn't he adorable?|
