Yesterday, I made two fantastic decisions.

1. I didn’t run. I meant to. I wanted to. I forgot my orthotics at home. So instead I got on the elliptical for 45 minutes and was nice to the foot.

2. I registered for the Hyannis Half Marathon.  Committed. Love it.

#2 is overdue.

and I made tempeh tacos.

with ingredients I already had, because I refuse to go grocery shopping. 🙂

Were they good? yes.

Fantastic? Eh, I don’t know if I’d go that far.


What’s my game plan for today?

1. run outside at lunch

2. some kind of lasagna for dinner

3. clean my apt

4. make hummus

Friday, I ran for the first time in weeks.

Today, I took a look at my 2012 race plan (since I haven’t actually registered for any of them yet).

The next big race I want to do is the Hyannis Half & I’ll need to train properly if I want to PR. Taking a few weeks off certainly didn’t make me any faster. I started looking into training plans and realized that the race is 12 weeks away. Which means I need to start training THIS WEEK. Crazy how that snuck up on me. The end of Feb is only 12 weeks away?! Yup.

I’m going to follow the Hal Higdon Novice 2 program, plus yoga & strength training.

20111205-212024.jpgTonight, I ran 3 miles, a little bit faster than last time, though not as fast as I would like. Step in the right direction at least!

20111205-212038.jpgSaturday, I went to the Worcester Sharks game with JT & his friends. I still don’t fully understand hockey, but I’m getting there.

Afterwards, we went to Ducali to meet up with Christina & Adam.

20111205-212057.jpgI got the Around the World flight. 20111205-212045.jpgpizza & beer. love it.

how was everyone’s weekend?

what’s next on the race calendar?
