Weeks 8 and 9 Training Update + Goals

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is ready for the new year! It's coming!

I had an eventful two weeks of quality time with the hubs and family. As we were traveling to join our families, Raisin Bread and I got into a road accident, which was probably the scariest thing I have ever experienced. I am thankful that my husband and I are okay. The car is another story.

As you can see below, my training regime is a little off right now due to the weather and the holidays, but I have been playing catch up.

Week 8
Tuesday - ran 3 miles
Thursday - ran 2.8 miles

Week 9
Thursday - ran 2.8 miles
Saturday - ran 4 miles

I received some welcome news last week. I got into the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in April! Yay! So excited to run this race.

In addition to lots of good food and company, I got a bunch of gear off my wish list from my awesome family members and in-laws:

A headlamp and pair of reflective armbands for night running.

Waterproof jacket from The North Face

Two running skirts. Guess which one is for my Princess Half outfit!

Not running gear but also items that will encourage my physical activity. Bike helmet and bike lock

I'm excited to take all of these gifts on a test drive
Finally as this year draws to a close, I started thinking about what I want to accomplish over the next year. I typically don't make new year's resolutions. I prefer the concept of goals instead. I also find it helpful to write  those goals down, so with that, my goals for the next 6 months are:

1. Finish my MBA
2. Finish my first 10 miler
3. Finish my first half marathon
4. Exercise three times a week
5. Participate in Meatless Mondays regularly - I have been doing this on and off for a while but would like to be more consistent.
6. Eat out less = save money
