Whew! Busy busy week!! But I’m sure a lot of people are crazy busy the week before Christmas! Luke and I have been running around and getting a bunch of last minute stuff done and we’re going to be leaving Kansas super early on Monday morning to drive to Illinois to be with some family in Christmas. This time of year tends to be pretty hectic, but it’s also a lot of fun!! 😊
- 1 mile
Another busy day, another miles squeezed in for the streak!!
I’ve still been doing and enjoying short, speedy (for me 😉) runs! It’s been hard, but fun. I’m not sure if streaking is making me a better runner or not, but I sure like to think it is! 😊
- 3 miles
- 20 minutes of yoga
My legs were feeling kinda tired on Tuesday. So I took some time to really focus on recovery. Did a little bit of yoga with some foam rolling thrown in. Then that evening I wore my compression socks, kept my feet elevated, and just really relaxed. 😌
- 2 miles
- Mini strength routine
Made some money on my run on Wednesday!! 12.5 cents per mile! Sweet! This running thing is obviously starting to pay off! 😉😂 Anyway, after my paid run I did a teeny tiny little strength routine. It consisted of some plank work, donkey kicks, clam shells, a wall sit, and 5 whole push ups. Nothing too crazy or fancy, but some strength work definitely beats no strength work! 😁
- rest day
My streak officially ended on Thursday. I was CRAZY tired and just not feeling it. So I knew it was time. I made it 28 days. Streaking is fun, but a long streak is just not for me hahaha.
- rest day
I was pretty busy on Friday! Luke and I are going to be driving to Illinois super early on Monday morning, so we’ve been getting ready for that and all of the Christmas festivities. One thing on the agenda was taking Dean to the vet to get his shots. Haha poor Dean. He hates the vet. He did very well though. 😊
- rest day
Yup! Yet another day of no running! Honestly though it’s felt really good not to be running after 28 straight days of it. 😂
Anyway, Saturday was a super exciting day! Two of my hens laid an egg for the very first time!!! How freakin awesome is that?!?! Oh man, I’m so stoked! Luke and I had bacon and egg sandwiches for dinner that night. 🐓🥚😋
I probably could have squeezed in a run this morning if I’d have woken up earlier. But I drank a little too much wine last night to really want to do that. 😂 I spent the day doing last minute prep work on everything before we leave for Illinois. Got all of the small animals settled in and ready for us to be gone for two days, wrapped some presents, packed our bags, and got the house into order, among other things.
Oh and I got another egg this morning!!!
Anyway, at this point I think we’re pretty much ready to go!! The plan is to be up at 2 am, pack the truck, and be on the road as quickly as possible. Luke’s dad is currently working Midnights, so we want to get to his house around 7-8 am so Luke can see him for a little bit after he gets off of work and before he goes to bed. Haha that should be a fun adventure. Getting up at 2 am is always my favorite! 🙄😉
But alrighty! That’s all for now!
Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas Adam (or Christmas Eve Eve if that’s your thing. I prefer Christmas Adam though 😉).
