New year, hello. Good to see you.
I did not get out for a run yesterday. I should have. Slacker. I do intend to run after track practice today. I’ll go out a slog my way through a slow and probably uncomfortable 5k run.
I need to show my Garmin 310XT that it is loved and appreciate, that the last year and a half of training and racing were well worth it. It has never steered me wrong and made me more in tune with my body, better understand what kind of athlete I am. It’ll only see a few more workouts as I have a shiny new toy showing up on Tuesday. New toy *swoon*
Another way I have kicked off my new year is to finally buck up and register for my first race of 2015. I opted for the SMP River Duathlon as part of the Flower City Challenge in Rochester NY. I’ve actually never done a du, but thanks to the Rat Snake I have in fact done a multisport race that has the run before the bike leg.
In other news, I have spent the majority of my winter break sick, maybe. I’m not sure. I haven’t been able to breath in ten days. The first few days included lots of aching and lots of headaches. Thanks to this I did not work out as much as I had wanted to this break. I spent more time curled up on my couch blowing my nose instead. It also means my house did not get as clean as I had hoped it would. Oops.
Some exciting news otherwise from me that I haven’t shared yet- A few months ago I get accepted to FitFluential. It’s been really slow going for me to kind of figure it out, but I’m really excited to be part of a wide spread and incredible fitness promotion company.
I also got accepted as part of the Nuun ambassador team for 2015. I drink a lot of Nuun, so this is very exciting. So much yumminess!
And in not fitness related news, since Husbandface and I have been both under the weather this winter break, we bought a puzzle to keep us entertained. I freaking love puzzles and can usually chew through them, but this is the most difficult and slightly frustrating puzzle ever.
I will send a tube of Nuun in your choice of flavor to anyone who can successfully complete this puzzle in under six total hours. I kid you not, this is super hard.
And backing up back to thinking about the new year, I know everyone made some resolutions, goals you’d like to reach in 2015. If your goals include racing in any capacity, I still have a couple of coaching openings for the upcoming season. Check out my coaching options here if you’re thinking about coaching for this season. I can answer any questions you might have =)
What’s one goal you have for 2015?
What did you do celebrate and ring in the new year?
