I rang in the New Year with my sister and some friends in the Twin Cities area. We actually spent New Years Eve at a low key house party but had fun playing games and having a few drinks.
Friday night a few of us went out to the Local, which is one of my favorite places to go in downtown MPLS. I tried the Big Ginger, which is what they are known for and fell head over heals in love. mmm... so tasty and refreshing! (two shots of Jameson whiskey, ginger ale, ice, and lemon and lime wedges in a 16 oz. glass)
The last couple of days I didn't have access to a gym and only had the option of the treadmill at my sister's house, but my knees were screaming "no". So, this morning, my plan was to head to the downtown Y and bike for about 45 minutes and then swim 20 minutes. It's been weeks since I last got into the pool.
Once I got there, I noticed how crappy the bikes were and didn't want to ride anymore. I really didn't want to run since my last couple of runs weren't the prettiest - leaving my knee feeling a bit tight. However, I ran/walked a couple miles, stretched a lot and then swam 1000M.
Is it bad that I am already re-thinking my goals/races for 2010?
My goal for January is to really get back into bodypump class, as well as trying some yoga and pilates classes. I am also going to begin doing my tripower routine. I will keep running, biking, and swimming, but nothing too crazy. My focus needs to be strengthening and stretching this month.
I won't be making any decisions in regards to any long distance races or challenges until February.
How is the New Year treating you?
