Two more days left in 2019!!
Drove to gym today ...... despite the constant light snow all day..... and from yesterday. At least a foot but the snow drifts were around 3 ft. and it's still snowing!!
Finished 8.2 miles!! woohoo!! 10 min elliptical. Then alternating on TM and short track as usual, straight running this time. Then about 20 min TRX and 20 min weights, with some stretching in the end. Good workout. Gosh, it gets sooooo dark by 5 pm here!! Decided against a couple of stops in town ....and went straight home instead.
I just don't like driving in the dark anymore especially in winter conditions.
Today: It was a wonderful surprise to receive a package from DD (from AZ) for our anniversary, New Year's Day. A bottle of amazing wine, and all the goodies to enjoy it. We made it our 'dinner' ..... the goodies were amazingly delicious, not cheap that's for sure! LOVED IT!!
It snowed lightly all day ....... much to DH's dismay. But he's such a good guy, he cleared our neighbor's driveway last night in addition to ours. My only contribution was shoveling the walkway from driveway to front door, WHEW!! Seriously, it was a workout, at night, temps in the teens, and still snowing!
So I didn't make it to the Sunday's snowshoe hike ........ due to the snowfall, didn't want to drive in that weather.
I'll try for New Year's Day.
And, I'm still 'considering' the Freeze Yer Gizzard Blizzard' run in International Falls, MN, January 18th.
DH says he'll be my driver but that means we have to leave EARLY Saturday morning, 10K is at 10 am. UNLESS I decide to run both the 5K (at 9 AM) and 10K (10 AM). It'll be worth the trip......and I'm just thinking of running it, not 'racing. It's about 2.5 hrs drive from our house. There is same day registration .......so if we make it by 8:30 am, I might run both.
My thinking: if I travel that far, might as well run the longest distance ........if I think I've trained for it. 3.1 miles (5K) + 6.2 miles (10K) = 9.3 miles ......... I know I can do the distance.
Gonna stalk the weather channel........
It's all about bragging rights, LOL!! ...... but the weather conditions, holy moly!! I'm just shivering thinking about it. But then, if I don't run it, it might end up being the 'warmest' race day .................... just my luck, LOL!!
Like the saying goes, "it's not bad weather, it's bad clothing!"
Question: what are your New Year's Eve plans? Any resolutions?
Mine: We are staying home. We use to attend a ballroom dance event with dinner here but it's not the same anymore (from what we read). Besides, DH barely stayed awake the last time we attended. But I prefer to stay home. I usually stay up late......enjoy watching the NYE's celebrations from around the world. I normally don't drink on NYE but if we are staying home, bottoms up!! LOL!!
Resolutions: none....... I use to make them (years ago) but then I make modifications throughout the year so I gave up on them.
