Week 5 was my first week of Christmas vacation and it was glorious not to have to get up before the sun to fit in my daily mile. It was also a week of (mostly) warmer weather so it was enjoyable to be outside.
Monday – 3 miles
Jonny and I also went for a skate on the outside rink at Eau Claire – the ice wasn’t great but they had hot chocolate, cookies and a cosy fire.
Tuesday – 1.5 miles
Patches and I went for a quick Christmas Eve run and then I spent the afternoon wrapping gifts.
Wednesday – 3.75 miles
My sister and I took Patches out for a post-Christmas run to test out all of our new gadgets. The river path was finally open so we ran the “usual loop” for the first time in forever.
Thursday – 4.75 miles
Patches came for the first bit and then I enjoyed a solo run. This was my longest run in a while so all I felt like doing for the rest of the afternoon was crashing on the couch with a book.
Friday – 1.5 miles
Jonny and I went swimming in the morning and then I snuck my run in between lunch and an afternoon movie (we saw Anchorman 2).
Saturday – 1.25 miles
We had a “flash freeze” and it was cold!
Sunday – 1.25 miles
Fit in our short run before swimming.
Weekly Total – 17 miles
Streak Total – 77 miles
