Week in Review

This has been a pretty good week.  Today was day 23 of my RW Holiday Running Streak and hubby and I headed out for a nice 6 mile run.  I have really been enjoying my runs since I made the decision to stick with shorter races in the coming year.  I am just going to focus on consistency and health.

I am also excited that  I managed to keep my streak even though I had to fly to Denver for a quick overnight trip on Thursday.

I also had a pretty fun week because I got new Sockwell Compression socks.  I don't know about you, but I love getting new running stuff.  Especially if they are cute.  And these felt great and were super cute.  I tested my new compression before heading out to Denver on Thursday with a hill run.  It went great I was much faster than I anticipated being.  I also got in two gym strength sessions and I squeezed in a quick strength session today with free weights, some planks, and push ups.  

I am going to do a little recovery run tomorrow and hit the gym after work.  I also discovered that visiting my Chiropractor before getting on my flight made a big difference.  My hip and legs did not feel nearly as tight as usual.  I will definitely try that in the future.  

Hubby and I both have two more weeks of work then two weeks off.  I always look forward to this time every year to recharge, but I must admit I am looking forward to it more this year.  

Yesterday we wrapped up the ATC season at the mile run.  Both hubby and I also collected our Bunny Awards for running every race in the Grand Prix season.  It was my second his fourth.  

I hope you had a good week and are finding a way to squeeze in exercise during the holiday season and some good nutrition among all the temptations.  

Today I am grateful that was my last trip of the year.  I am home with hubby and kitties for the rest of the year!!


  1. Great job on the streak! I'd actually been thinking of cancelling the gym membership due to lack of use but now that winter is just around the corner it might be nice to have some treadmill access. Enjoy your holiday time off!

  2. I just got some new compressions socks as a gift this weekend too. I love them! I would never thought I could be so excited about socks :)
