Yep, the lunch bag is on the counter so now it's definitely real.
I'm sure going to miss spending the day with this crazy gal. <3

Today we had our first real blast of winter with snow, ice pellets and then rain. This made for super slick road conditions and I debated going out for my run several times. After checking out the roads, I decided against insanity and wimped out. But sometimes, it's okay to be a wimp. ;)
I did a serious upper body workout with some core exercises and then hit up the treadmill for a super duper long 7 mile run. The first two miles were certainly the most challenging for me mentally so then I made it a game, sort of. I did each mile faster than the previous and it actually worked to keep me engaged. 7 miles certainly does not meet the standard of a long run in marathon training I know, but this week was a scale down week that only asked for a 8 mile long run, which I did yesterday in fear of the storm today. So basically I switched Saturday and Sunday's runs. :)

But no worries, I'll be babbling on about this from now on in...........
That's right, only 105 days!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you have a lovely evening and didn't get pounded too badly with snow today. Thanks for checking in on GGR.
Do you get sad when you take down Christmas?
How did you enjoy your break?
