"Let your BRIGHT shine" definitely was the theme of the final days of 2020.
At least in my world, it was. Maybe it was because Christmas had come and gone (and I was a bit burnt out on red and green). Perhaps it was to bring a touch of zing to the white backdrop of snow. Or, most likely, it was just me being the art geek/color freak that I am.
Whatever the case, it was a fun week of fitness. The bright colors that I brought to it were merely just a bonus. You can decide...
Before I tell you all about it, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 1:00 (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
Anywho, here's what went down on this week:
|Cycling with Renee, Marcia, Coco, Michelle, and Kim left me eager for a repeat!|
So, the final week of 2020 was a fun one, and it kept me active. Running saw nine miles (with possibly a few more happening Sunday afternoon). Walking had eight miles (there may be more of those happening on Sunday if the run doesn't happen). Biking was the dominant means of fitness this week, with four rides and 43 miles logged. Also, there were two elliptical workouts (nine total "miles"), one upper-body strength session and a couple ab/core workouts.
In other news:
A lot of people, myself included, designate a significant word, mantra, or theme for the year. I talked about this briefly in my Coffee post, but my focus for 2021 is Blissful Persistence. I'll be elaborating more on this in Tuesday's post, but the gist of it is to work hard and enjoy the journey....and to keep smiling along the way.
Lastly, but my no means least, with the arrival of 2021, a few of us felt the need to CeLeBrAtE on the first day of the new year! We made it through 2020 and have a brand new year ahead of us. I say we embrace the possibilities that lie ahead!

So, there you go. Another week all wrapped up and tied with a colorful bow.
How was your final week of 2020? Any celebrating? Did you pick a work or a theme for 2021?
