Hey All. I have a bit of good news and a bit of bad news.
The good news is I finally finished my Christmas shopping. It took me ‘til now to complete all the gift buying, paper wrapping, and card writing. I didn’t know how much of a procrastinator I am until tonight when I finished my shopping just as the guards were just about to lock up. (Truthfully, I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to spend a night in a department store…)
As for the bad news, I still haven’t found my R.L.F.S.T. Apparently Santa couldn’t ask his elves to built one for me in their workshop but I’d have to find one myself if I wanted to see one for Christmas this year. Sigh. I guess I’ll have to settle for something much more mundane for Santa to bring down the chimney this year.
In other news. I think I’m almost ready to get back to training. I’ve been getting the urge to hit the road even when the temps been in the single digits outside. I think that means my body’s fully recovered. I’m planning to do my first miles in three weeks this weekend and ease back to base training next week. But since I don’t plan on having good enough weather to run on most days of the week, and I don’t own a treadmill, I’ll have to sign up for a monthly membership at the gym just so I can use the running carousel from hell. Feels like such a waste to me, but I know motivation alone won’t be enough to get me to
Hmmm…gives me something to think about over Christmas. Meanwhile, I’m still holding out hope that my very own R.L.F.S.T. will magically appear in my room tomorrow morning so I won’t have to worry about the weather throwing a wrench into my marathon training. Here’s to hoping anyways.
Hoping everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday! Merry Christmas to all.
