And we have snow

On the first day of 2012, my in-laws came to visit me and brought loads of cookies and bread - talk about carb overload.  This is all that is left after I ate more than my share of cookies and took even more into work with me.

One the second day of 2012, I had to go back to work when most people still had off - I enjoyed the less crowded roads as I drove home.

One the third day of 2012, it snowed! And the temperatures dropped to freezing levels so I went to the gym and battled for a treadmill to run a few tempo miles.  I really hope I can limit my time on the treadmill this winter because today was just not fun.


This year has started off pretty well and I hope it continues.  I didn't make any resolutions last year - I just wanted to train smart and stay injury free. Well that almost worked and so for 2012 I am going to try again.

I want to stay injury free for 2012. 

And I hope I am on the right track because I am feeling better and stronger thanks to ART and my cross training at the gym.  I can now do lunges properly and I can ever run 10 miles again.  It seems like everything is coming together for another great year!

Now all I have to do is plan out my race schedule for the year...I think I'll focus on spring first and then work from there.

5 degrees... yuck! I was complaining about the 25 degrees here. Last winter I was training for my first marathon and the COLD outside winter runs was so not fun!

I finally just had to throw the end of the sweets out. Couldn't take it anymore! I love them too much!
I had to work on Monday too! Boo...
Snow...none of that here yet. In fact, we had an oddly warm 54*. I'm sure Mr. Winter is lurking around the corner.

Ooo, it's getting chilly and snowy there! Still no lasting snow here!

My coach had me do a treadmill speed/incline workout on Monday. I was miserable. I need to run outdoors too ;)

Here's to another injury free year!

We're in a cold snap here... I'm sick and can't run, but even if I could I don't think I could brave those temps. Brrr!

Here's hoping for an injury free 2012! Can't wait to see what you decide to do.
