I love love love being on vacation! Time to be lazy and enjoy life.
I seem to be a little addicted to NCIS right now. Just finished Season 1 and immediately began Season 2. I was headed to the big city today but there is a giant snowstorm so I turned around. My husband will be so proud that I made a sensible decision.
This is a road I only get on when I go 10 or more....

This morning when I finally got a 10 MILE RUN in there was rain and snow. For awhile it was snowing heavily and I had to be careful where I put my feet. When I got home I was SOAKED! The 10 miles were slow but fine. It is so nice to be able to get a long run in in the middle of the week! I have a race on the weekend so didn't want to do it then.
I went swimming yesterday morning and tried some of my new swimming toys. I don't think I used the swim buoy right but I gave it a shot. It was nice to have the time and not worry about being done to get to school on time. I kind of question the time I am putting into this sprint tri already with lots more to come but really I am loving the swimming and would like to be a better swimmer no matter what. I don't see me not swimming on a regular basis even without a tri to train for.
I am also thinking about picking out a half to two. How do I train for a half and a tri? In the past I was running 5 or 6 days a week but now it is 4. Is that enough? If I am following a training plan that calls for 5 days of running do I just pick the one day I think can be left out and call it good?
Jax came back! Two days after Christmas it is my husband's birthday so Jameson and Jax came back for a birthday supper. I made stuffed manicotti and homemade rolls and it was delicious. We have so many desserts around from Christmas that I didn't do anything new. Of course the cats were thrilled Jax was back. They have completely different personalities around him. The "brave" one hides and the "timid" one - pictured above - stands his ground and hisses.
Before Emily left on Monday we went to my gym and worked out. I actually had a very good run and it was nice to be there with Em. It was as PACKED as if it was Jan. 1! I couldn't even use "my" treadmill.
We are getting our first real snowstorm. My husband measured awhile ago (it is still snowing) and we are up to 12 inches. It is beautiful. I am thankful today is not the day Em is driving back to Washington. That makes me nervous enough without adding a snowstorm into the mix.
I was going to do a "quick" 4 miles in the morning but I guess I'll have to find my Yak Trax first!
