MONDAY and TUESDAY: I used these 2 days to finish up Christmas shopping. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Remind me next year to never do this again. It was a jungle out there. I felt like I went 12 rounds with Mike Tyson when I was finished.
WEDNESDAY: CHRISTMAS EVE: Since I was off work I decided to run 5 miles in the morning. I ran 2.5 miles to a nearby track then back. When I got to the track I sat down for a bit and had a moment to myself. I thought back on the year 2014, and started to look toward 2015. 2014 wasn't my best year, but wasn't my worst. I made huge strides on improving my technique and form. I am really looking forward to 2015.
THURSDAY: CHRISTMAS: I knew I wouldn't be running or doing anything this day except probably putting on a few pounds from how much I ate. You can read my last post to see all the running related items I got for Christmas. My favorite was my Brooks PureFlow 3 shoes.
FRIDAY: I think I was one of the only people in America that had to work this day. The day was so long and so boring, by the time I got home I was beat and didn't feel like doing anything.
SATURDAY: When I woke up and checked the weather, I thought there is no way I am passing up a nice day like this. I laced up my new Brooks and took them for a nice very slow 6 mile run. I didn't want to go fast and get blisters since they weren't broken in yet. After a mile of running I couldn't believe how great the shoes felt. I always loved my Pure Flow 2's and I can see these are just as good. When I finished running I felt great and my shoes gave me zero problems. This week I will actually use them on my normal runs at normal pace.
Saturday night I went to the Improv to see Bill Crawford. Every year he does a few shows around this time. My friends and I try to go every year, and every year Crawford puts on a great show. This year was no different.
SUNDAY: Today I am just using my new roller and massaging my legs. Like I said one more week of taking it easy then full steam ahead.
Until next time stay safe runners.
