Three Things Thursday

1. This week isn't going to be so great in the workout department. Monday already ended up being a rest day, and today is going to be a rest day. Ahhh I was doing so well. Next week shouldn't be quite as busy I hope!! Working sure gets in the way of exercise! The good news is that I get to see one of my dearest friends from California. Can't wait to visit with her, her hubby and another (local) friend.
2. Tomorrow is the RESOLUTION RUN!! Our weather is not cooperating for my 5K PR goals (snow, ice, -20C temps) so I am not going to beat myself up over it.
Tonight I will be picking up my race package- I hope I get a good number!! Look at this sweet jacket am I going to get!! Will have no problem being seen now!

It should be a good run even if the weather isn't on our side- hopefully I can meet up with some bloggers!

3. Hills- 7...errrr 5 repeats. Hubby and I set out to start the hill workout a bit earlier than the rest of the group as we had dinner plans at our family friends' place that we just helped move. I didn't want to miss the workout completely, but I also know how tough the hills are and I need all the moral support I can get!! It was cold, windy, and snowy last night when we started. A lot of the sidewalks were completely covered in snow, therefore it was difficult to even get TO the hill! I was smart this time and wore my long johns so my legs didn't freeze like they have been lately.

CoCo Stats:
Warm Up- 1.55k 7:28 AP
Hill 1- 0.81k 7:39 AP
Hill 2- 0.79k 7:45 AP
Hill 3- 0.80k 7:36 AP
Hill 4- 0.81k 7:44 AP
Hill 5- 0.78k 7:41 AP
Hill 6- :(- ran out of time
Hill 7- :( - ran out of time
Cool-down- 1.61k 6:33 AP -can you tell I was going down home :)
Total Distance- 7.15K
Total Time- 52:49 min
Average Pace- 7:23 min/km

Oy that was a slow and hard workout!!! I could have knocked out 2 more repeats but we were already late as it was getting to our friends' place that it seemed wise to stop. Just as we were finishing up our last hill the rest of the group showed up. I was starting to wonder if they were going to bail!!

HBBC Update
12/29- 4.5 M run, Fruits & Veggies= 5.5 points
Points so far this week= 21.5


  1. I have to admit that I'm kind of disappointed with the forecast. I'm going to walk part of the course beforehand, and I'm hoping it won't actually be too icy.

    I'm going to be by the playground before the race (there's an indoor playground at Eau Claire by the food court) since it will keep my kids entertained. I'll post a blog post later today suggesting at a meeting place. :)

  2. I love how they say, "Jacket may not appear exactly as shown". Like, duh. Clothing always looks better on a real person. My big concern about buying over the internet is textiles. You can't feel the material through the web, and clothing feel is much more important than colour. Plus, no matter how carefully you measure, it's not the same as trying it on. Have fun during the resolution run! Looking forward to hearing about it. Ummmm, no, I wasn't planning to come out and cheer people on. Sorry.


I love reading your comments!
