Christmas has ended and I’m back home and back at work. Unlike most of the city, if traffic is any indication.
For the first time in I don’t know how long, I did my best to stick to my workout plan while at my parents’ house. I got thwarted by weather a bit, as no one should run outside when it is in the 30’s and raining. 20’s and snowing, sure, but 30’s and raining is miserable.
It was somewhat a fitness Christmas as I got a great music player to wear in the pool. I have discovered that when I swim before work, all I do is think about work, so I’m hoping that being able to listen to some tunes will let me just zone out and focus on my form and not all of the things that I will need to do when I get to the office. It makes my swim quite stressful.
It was awesome to be home with the family. This was an odd Christmas, as neither of my uncles, nor their spouses came for Christmas this year and one cousin was missing. I can’t remember the last time they weren’t there. But they all have other family, so that’s what happens. It was low key, but lovely. My grandparents are both in their 90’s, and I know how lucky I am to still have them around.
It was also fun to hang out with the pack of giant dogs that lives at my parents’ house. They’re so much fun, but man, having dogs is exhausting. My cats are so nice and calm and easy going and unlikely to try to tackle me when I walk in the door. Though being greeted when I get home is nice.
I’m home for about a week, then I head to Florida for Disney races. This week, I need to get my eating straightened out and stick to my training plan. I don’t even want to know what the scale says right now. Ugh.
