Merry Christmas weekend! I don’t know about you but Christmas really snuck up on me this year. it’s exciting but sad at the same time, it will be gone so quickly. One thing I am NOT sad to see go is my super long run schedule for Goofy in January. I love to run, but I do NOT love to run double digit runs every single weekend. Oy. I will gladly take a break and run some 5k’s this spring!
Yesterday after our run
Ok, so this past week in review. We ran an 18 miler last weekend, and after going to the chiropractor all week and adjusting to the newness of that, we decided to take it easy this week (also to help make sure we don’t get injured so close to the race!) This is what the week looked like:
Tuesday: 30 minutes stationary bike, upper body weights
Wednesday: 20 minutes stationary bike, upper body weights
Friday: 2 miles on the treadmill
Saturday: 7 miles outside
Today we are running about 12 miles, attempting to simulate some back to back long runs to prepare for Goofy in just three short weeks! We will be celebrating Christmas with family until Wednesday, so I’m sure workouts this week will be a bit wonky too, but that’s ok, it’s Christmas! Have a great Sunday everyone, I am going to sit by the fire!

QOTD: What is your favorite Christmas EVE tradition?
My favorite Christmas Eve tradition is watching Muppet Christmas Carol. I love Kermit’s song “One More Sleep Till Christmas” and on Christmas Eve, that’s especially true.
I’m feeling the same way. Training for Goofys becoming more of a chore instead of fun (the cold weather doesn’t help either)…but it’ll be worth it! This is the first year I’m away from family for Christmas, so were going to be starting new traditions. Christmas Eve were planning on making a bunch of new and different appetizers to try

Wow. I am always so impressed by the Goofy runners who have to train with two long runs in a row. I imagine my body would adjust, but sometimes just the thought of it makes my knees ache! 🙂

Great job on the back-to-backs! I’m running the Disney Half so my long runs aren’t quite so intimidating (8 miles today). I’m so impressed with those running Goofy–takes a lot of commitment. I can’t believe we’re only three weeks out!!!
My fave Christmas Eve tradition is our pre-party at my house. We have an appetizer/dessert menu and keep it casual and small. We also open one gift each as a taste of what’s to come Christmas morning.

still can’t believe you are doing goofy, you are amazing. You look so stinking cute in that outfit too!! skirts look awesome on you
I can’t believe I am doing it either, what did I get myself into!?!?

Seems like interesting training. What exactly is goofy? Good that you have something to train for during this time of the year. Seems like most people are just killing time before spring race season.
Goofy is where you run the half marathon saturday and the full marathon sunday!
