I know, I know!

So I know I had November #Goals. I actually worked on them and did pretty well with most. I stopped tracking near the end of the month.

I didn't do well on stretching. I did 1 or 2 major (10 min long) stretching days. I did do a few shorter stretching days after runs, etc. but I wasn't including those in my tally. But I did do better than previous months. (Let's not talk about December).

I got in my 80 oz of water most days. I always seemed to miss about 2 days out of the week. Weekends are hard for me and so are my weight watchers days (since I weigh in in the afternoon and I don't drink a ton those mornings). But I still consider this a win. (Trying to keep up my water intake in December).

Strength training was a bust in November. I think I did maybe 2 or 3 actual workouts that I found on my own. An improvement, yet. But not up to my goal. I did just get classes again at The Dailey Method for barre classes and went to my first one in a long time this week. My abs and triceps are still sore 2 days later. I'm hoping to make this a 2 day thing but right now, I can only go once a week.

I was in a minor car accident the Thursday before Christmas. Thankfully no injuries (that I know of) and it was the other persons fault, but it's still a pain in the rear and I am still working on getting a rental. The holidays really screwed me up on this one.

Right now, I'm just training for the F^3 Half Marathon in Chicago at the end of January. I'm hoping the weather that day will be unseasonably warm! I can always hope, right?

Big things are in the works for 2017! I'll let you know what that might be very soon!

Hope you all had a nice Christmas and have a great New Year!

  2. Glad your car was the only thing injured although that sucks to deal with :(

    1. Totally sucks to deal with it but yes, definitely thankful I'm not injured at all.
