Not a whole lot of sweating going on over here! It’s so weird not having a schedule to follow. There is no core work I have to do, no runs I need to fit in. I am having a hard time adjusting to be honest! I am a super scheduled person and having time the option to do whatever I want almost causes anxiety!
Saturday I went for my first run post marathon. My knees are acting up and are super swollen still. The run felt nice to sweat and move but even though I only did an easy 30 minutes my knees still hurt by the last little bit. I am hoping that continuing to ice and rest will help.
What have I been doing in my free time? This weekend I had an afternoon brew with J because….well, just because I can!
I am also loving all the Christmas lights in my neighborhood. This particular house probably has every lawn ornament known to man. Seriously
I have also been catching up with family and friends. Since I was so strict to my schedule while training, it’s nice to be a little more laid back and enjoy the down time. Last night J and I went to his parents for chicken pot pie, one of my favorite dinners his mom makes! Yum!
And finally, I thought it would be fun to share how romantic J is. This is a card I received from him before I headed out west. That boy and his charm
Tonight I am teaching a WOD and hopefully will find the motivation to get some weight training in myself. But…since I am taking this month relaxed and unstructured I will try not to be too hard on myself if I decide to take a rest day for the 1232th day in a row
