|I was taking pics of hubby after our freezing Thanksgiving Run and snapped this shadow shot of me|
Took a little break from blogging over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Just wanted to take a little break from technology actually. Decided a little time connecting with my real husband and getting out and about would be good for the soul. It has been and it has sparked my holiday plan.
I am actually not really training for anything, except of course a healthy life. No goal race, in fact hubby and I don't really have a race on the schedule until Heart and Sole 5K in February. I had been going back and forth about the Holiday Running Streak. I did the spring streak and the holiday streak last year. It is a good way to stay mindful during the holidays. Hard to overindulge if you know you have to get out there and run, not waddle, at least a mile.
As well as doing the streak I decided that though I love technology and I have gone on about how I love ISmooth Run, I have decided my streak will also be a running technology break. I won't be listening for my splits or pace or distance. Brace yourself, I am just going to run and listen to my body. I will run as fast or slow and as short or far as I feel like running. I will enjoy the Christmas lights that brighten my pre-dawn holiday runs and the good company of my husband. Mostly I will just run for fun and kind of end the year just enjoying running. Not getting in my head and wondering why today I was slower than yesterday or telling myself I have to get that extra 1/4 mile or I won't hit my weekly mileage.
I am officially on day four of my RW Holiday Technology Detox Running Streak. I look forward to getting to know once again the simple pleasure of running to run.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and celebrated with those closest to them.
