In any case, I am pleased to say that I pretty much have all my holiday shopping done (which is totally early or me...yay). I ordered most of my stuff online on Cyber Monday so not everything has arrived yet. The only gifts I need to buy are for the grandparents and those are usually the hardest!
Oh, and regardless of what I wrote in this post last week, I am not a scrooge and I DO actually decorate for Christmas. I ordered a few pieces of Holiday decor last week and this is one piece that arrived this weekend.
After my two races the first weekend in November, I decided to just take the month off and relax. That was actually harder to do than I thought because the weather was still so great last month that I didn't want to miss out on some warm runs since I knew winter was coming soon. I think I did maybe three runs but I didn't go to the gym at all.
I'm starting December out strong though, I've already started back at the gym and I got the bike out and did two 5 mile rides already. I plan to get in a run this afternoon as well. I don't like running in the winter, so this coming season is all about just doing enough to maintain my fitness and keep from being injured. #SettingTheBarLow
We both have a race coming up this coming weekend. I didn't really forget about it, but I didn't actually realize it was THIS weekend! WOW, talk about how time flies! What do you have on tap for December? -M
