So just a quick update here...
1. Celebrated my first Christmas here in the U.S. and I was so happy to have spent it with my parents. The last time was 8 years ago! We got home at around 4:30am since we started eating at around midnight for Noche Buena.
Most of the gifts I got were PINK and I got two running/sports-related gift. A Lululemon All Sports Bra and something I will reveal next month. :p
With my dad, step-mom and siblings and "some" of the food we had. =)
Me and my not-so babygirl and me opening presents at 4:30am!
2. I think Ice Skating can be considered as cross-training, right? Got shin splits though. Only coz I'm not Kristi Yamaguchi! I've done this several times before but it's not like riding a bike again, that's for sure! Mike and I hung on to those corners for dear life! It was actually Mike's first time and I loved that he was so determined to learn how to skate that he went back in the rink several times. Mikah, on the other hand, was the expert.
I finished early coz I remembered I'm scheduled to do my long run the next morning! AND... I fell on my butt once. No shame in that! LOL! Mikah even caught it on video but I. AM. NOT. SHARING. IT. :p
Forgive the sucky iPhone photos. 0_0
3. Ran 14 miles last Monday at 12noon! The sun was out and I think I ran a little slower than usual because of this. Every time I would feel warm, I would just think about the crazy heat back home in the Philippines and that seemed to work. Felt good, no pain in the knees but the calves felt sore after. That's something new. At least was able to burn off all the Christmas lbs.
*What's sports/running-related gift did you receive this Christmas?
*Tried any winter sport lately? Which one?
*What did you do to burn of all the food you ate this Christmas?
