5 Things Friday and Happy Holidays!

1. Right now I'm on the up in the air training plan and I don't know what I want to do next week? I will be traveling to Ohio on Tues. to go see my family and I know I will be packing my running shoes and my swim suit, but I'm not sure how often I will get either one in. But the plan is to run 3 times next week and swim at least 2 times. The pool I plan to swim at opens at 5am (yikes I have never swam this early) but I think it will be a good time to go because my family will not even know I'm gone since they will be all warm still in their beds. Jealous.
2. I talked to my sister and said I might also bring my bike and bike trainer home and she laughed at me and thought it was a ridiculous idea. She had a better idea and said that if I'm going to the rec center to swim, that I can just spin on a bike there. Very true, but I still want kindof want to bring my bike even though I have barely been using my trainer. As of matter of fact, I need to come up with some good trainer workouts so I don't die of boredom on the thing. At the very least I am somewhat getting used to riding in the aero position even though I know it won't be so easy to ride outside.
3. I can't wait to eat some Christmas cookies! I actually have not eaten any yet this holiday season which is so sad.
4. I wanted to make up the 12 days of a tri - mas. I thought it would be so cute, however I'm not very creative and couldn't come up with anything witty.
5. Why I am at work today? I want my break to begin now :) 
Happy Holidays Everyone :) I hope you have a great one!


  1. I hope you have a good trip! I'll be here...working.

  2. I actually thought about driving to Detroit rather than flying just so that I could bring my bike/trainer. But then reasoned that I'd only be gone 3 full days anyway.

  3. I was reading a review on some spin podcasts that are supposed to be pretty good and keep you from getting bored. There is a series called sufferfest and then another is spinervals. Haven't done either but planning on checking them out. Have a great Christmas!

  4. I totally brought my bike and cold weather gear. I can't let a long weekend go to waste! Merry Christmas!

  5. I have been eating enough Christmas cookies for the both of us! Even though it probably won't start until after Christmas I have been thinking about doing some kind of twelve days of running or tri or something
