Christmas morning was full with getting up early with the kiddos to open stockings and gifts, then off to mass, back home to clean up and prep for family coming over, then serving a big ham lunch, opening more gifts and everyone playing with everything. Three o'clock came pretty quickly and I didn't want the daylight getting away from me so I snuck out for a run.
Our weather continues to be beautiful and sunny (so odd since our winters tend to be pretty gray). The wind was slightly cooler, but the temps were slightly warmer (46°) so it was perfect to walk/jog with no hat, gloves or jacket - just my new running shirt (thanks Santa) and my capris (Santa brought me some Under Armor tights I got on sale too, but really didn't need them today). Santa wasn't flush enough with cash to drop a Garmin in my stocking, but maybe if I'm a super good girl, my husband and kids can swing one for Mother's Day.
According to May My Ride, it was 3.54 miles and I did it in 47:23 for an average pace of 13:23 min miles - pretty good (for me). Helps me feel a lot better about the big lunch I scarfed down! We'll see what MMNW brings. I should sleep solid tonight as I did not get a lot of rest last night.
Almost all of my gifts this year were fitness related. I bought myself (from Santa), a long sleeve running shirt, tights, cycling tights (padded), and a long sleeve jersey (compression). My stocking had pink Yankz, Body Glide, and lights for my bike. I got a cool workout towel from my Secret Santa (in Jill's exchange) that said "Sweat is Sexy" (picture to come). My husband and kids bought me a dozen red roses as well. I got a little money from my inlaws. We had already agreed to use whatever money we got towards our Y membership so that is basically spoken for.
