You will be happy to know that the Christmas tree is still standing!! Thanks for all of your funny comments! It will definitely be a story for the ages!!
As far as training goes, after missing my scheduled run on Wednesday because of Ryan's snow delay, I decided that God was sending me a message that I should indeed listen to my coach and take the rest of December off of running and heal. Once I made that decision, I felt a great sense of peace about it. I went to the chiropractor again on Thursday for another excruciating Graston session, and I am committed to stretching, foam rollering and icing, so I can kick this Achilles issue once and for all!!
Of course, once I had made the decision to take off, my friend, Ben, emailed me to see if I wanted to go out next weekend to run a 20 miler. The subject of the email was, "Let's do something stupid together." I was sorely tempted. I will not be running with him next weekend, but I reserve the right to do something stupid in 2011!!!
This was also an exciting week in the Trakkers world because the 2011 Team Trakkers was announced. There was a flurry of emails and tweets of introductions of the new team members. It is shaping up to be a really great group of people (again)...but, of course, that doesn't surprise me a bit.
Anywho, here are the numbers for the week:
Swim: 3h 30m 9600 yds
Bike: 2h 25m 8s 15.00 mi
Total: 6h 55m 8s
Coach Mary has me swimming 5 (FIVE) times this coming week!! Wowza!!
Have a wonderful week and happy training! Be sure to check back this week for two more Trimommy Stocking Stuffer Giveaways!!
