I STRENGTH TRAINED TWICE THIS WEEK!!!!!!
I know. The world can go back to revolving on its axis now.
Monday: 6 miles hills, 8:29 pace. 372 foot gain. Butt was sufficiently kicked. I need to put more effort into my hill running because I'm getting soft these days. I even had to walk at the top of the biggest hill.
Tuesday: 7.5 miles, 8:15 pace. There's a big hill at the beginning of this run(400 foot gain) and, yet again, I ended up walking after I got to the top so I could catch my breath. What's my deal? It has also been really foggy this week and it seems like it's harder to breathe- or am I just making up excuses?
Thursday: Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown DVD. I'm so weak. That's all.
Friday: 10 miles, 8:02 pace. Ran 50 laps on the indoor track. It felt so easy! I ran with Mindy, but I threw in a number of sub 7 miles to mix things up. It was really fun and I honestly never got bored. (Which is surprising considering I ran in circles for an hour and twenty minutes. I think the track is so much easier because A) It's actually flat, and B) there is no wind resistance. It's also nice to have a bathroom and a drinking fountain every 2 tenths of a mile.
Saturday AM: Christmas Eve Virtual 5K! 3.1 miles in 20:25, 6:36 average pace. So hard. So awesome. Pretty stoked to have a PR in the 20's!

Last week's goal: Strength train twice a week. Done!!!!
This week's goal: Run 20 miles. It's Tuesday and I have yet to run yet this week. I'm tempted to take the entire week off to chill with the family, but I know I'll regret it, so I'm setting a 20 mile goal- not a ton of miles, but enough to make me feel like I did something.
Christmas was great this year, but SECOND Christmas was a billion times better! I'll do another post about it after I get all of my pictures loaded. Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
