The last few days since Thanksgiving have been busy - I am back at school and started classes today : ( It is hard to get back into the mind frame of having to study and do homework when I am so used to having my nights and weekends free!
Today is the first official day of Track practice! I am slightly nervous since all the cross country girls will be there and I hope I can still run fast and be on the relay after a lazy week off. I didn't run Friday, Saturday or Sunday to allow my muscles to heal. The doctors visit went well - all my blood tests came back ok and all my vitamin levels are good so I am assuming that it must have been the stress of a job plus trying to be a college athlete!
Saturday I joined B-rabbit and his family as they went and picked out a Christmas tree. It was quite a nice time - I especially like hanging out with his sister as she always makes me laugh! Sunday I put up the tree at my parents house with B-rabbit. We had a nice time and took several Christmas pictures which turned out very nice! Last night we wrapped presents too - I just love wrapping - I am so excited for Christmas!!
I finally tried on my tech shirt from the race and guess what it actually fits - it fits really well!! The sleeves are perfect with the shoulder seams hitting right on my shoulder as well as the shirt hitting well below where my shorts start! I love it - its a nice blue color and I cannot wait to run in it! Finally a t-shirt that fits me correctly!! Maybe it is because I actually ordered a Women's medium shirt - last year I got a Men's small I think and it was huge! The t-shirt is that Nike FIT dry and it is super comfy!
Since it is now December, looking back at November my mileage decreased A LOT!
November total = 60.68 miles
I wasn't able to get in any long runs over about 6.5 miles which is mainly to blame in the drop off. This month should be about the same if not a little less as I have my first track meet December 12th!!
Anyway thats all for me now - I feel so disorientated sitting in classes and actually having to pay attention for more than 10 minutes at a time! And not having constant access to Google reader as well as my email! Happy December!
