Ahhhhhh….. Don’t you love the holidays? Cookies, cakes, chocolates, treats…. Everywhere!
I gotta admit that I’m struggling to stay on track, to fit my workouts in and to say no to all of the wonderful & delightful food. This time of the year is hard for me – I LOVE SUGAR! So this week I’ve put my focus on the positive – on what I can accomplish, and on doing my workouts.
Monday I did a 45min Nike Training Club iPhone app workout, followed by 20min on the dreadmill, Tuesday was a 5k run, and yesterday I only had a short period of time to workout so I did a 30 min Nike Training Club iPhone app workout. This week has been far better than last.
Oh! I almost forgot why I was writing this post! (Can you tell I’m tired?). On Tuesday, when I got home from work I found an awesome gift for me from my Daily Mile Secret Santa, @runnerskye. She sent me an awesome Van Island Runners for Cancer Calendar! The calendar was produced under the direction of Skye herself!
“Van Island Runners for Cancer Ã‚Â is a 2012 calendar featuring local runners at various locations around Vancouver Island. The goal is to feature real runners of all abilities, from those relatively new to the sport to elite athletes, to show that running is an all-inclusive sport. It doesn’t matter how much you run or how Ã…”athletic Ã‚Â you look; if you put on your shoes and head out the door, you’re a runner.
I love my new calendar! When I got to work yesterday I hung it up right next to my Chilly Half Marathon training plan:
