Even though it’s undeniably time that it be done . . . taking down the tree is always a bit of a sad day in the Jara household.
Thankfully, through some awesome teamwork out ornaments and lights were down within a half hour. Not too shabby. . . and now all we have to do is take the actual tree to the dump, and wash and store the tree skirt. Holiday’s 2013, you were pretty stellar 🙂 thanks for the memories.
Workout Of The Day: 5 miles speed work + weights
Today, for the first time in the January rush, I had to wait for a treadmill. Frustrating, with that said I am pretty impressed with how chill I was (AKA: I only glared and stalked the runners for a few minutes. . . ). I decided to take advantage of the time and squeeze in some weights
- 3 sets of 15 incline sit ups
- 3 sets of 15 chest press
- 3 sets of 15 leg press (40 lbs)
Just enough to get me warmed up and by the time I was finished, I only waited another minute or two. My run was actually pretty entertaining tonight:
- 800 @ easy pace
- 800 @ challenging pace
- 400 @ easy pace
- 400 sprint
- repeat the 400’s
- Repeat the entire cycle
- Finish with one easy mile
That ended up being a little under 43 minutes for my 5 miler. Not-too-shabby for this girl. I always LOVE getting my workout done in the AM, my PM workouts always seem to be a bit stronger. I need to work on trying to get a little fuel in before my AM workouts if I want to change this I think . . .
Now it’s time to relax and enjoy the BCS bowl game and dinner the hubby prepped for me! 🙂 If we’re lucky maybe I’ll have some good pics and a recipe for tomorrow of the meal. Tonight’s menu included a Mexican flare.
Question of the Night: When do you take down your holiday decorations?
