Weekly Wrap...Dec 10

We are linking up with Holly and Tricia for their weekly wrap!

I should call this post Week #3 of Holiday Festivities!  It seems like every weekend we have something festive going on. I don't remember doing so many festive things last year at this time, so it's kind of nice.

If you missed it......
Week 1 we visited A Longwood Gardens Christmas
Week 2 we did Late Night Shoppers night and Holiday movie

And now this week......

On Sunday My Aunt and I went to the Lights of Love ceremony at our local hospital.

  I got an invitation to the event because I made a donation to the Hospice center in memory of my Grandmother (my Aunt's mom). At the end of the event we sang Silent Night as they lit up the memorial garden with Christmas lights. I'm not going to say this was a happy event, but it did feel good to participate and recognize the work of all the people who help care for our loved ones in their time of need.

The week days were spend gathering things we will need for an upcoming Christmas gathering and gift getting. I feel like I am pretty well set with my Christmas gifts but need to get a few more pieces to make some of them complete! -M


Because of all the running around I did this week to gather gifts and supplies, I only got in one treadmill run and my performance on race day reflected that...haha.

Here are Lacey's Workouts.

Monday I had to teach my spin class then had some clients to train in the afternoon. I met a friend for lunch after work. By the time we finished it was getting cold and dark out so I decided to do 5 miles on the treadmill.

On Tuesday after work I finished some Christmas shopping then I decided to go back to the gym and take a class which I usually don’t get to since I am always teaching them.  I took a CX Works class (which is a core class) and a Body Step class. Both of those classes I do not teach so it is always fun to take something different.  I also did a mile and half on the treadmill afterwards.

Wednesday I had another spin class. I didn’t think I was going to have time after work to run so I wanted to make sure that I got my run in before class. So I did 2 miles on the treadmill before teaching my spin class.  After work it turned out to be a nice day and I couldn’t miss an opportunity to get outside to run since I have been doing my runs on the treadmill lately. I ended up running 5 miles outside at a pretty good pace. It’s hard to believe how much faster your pace can be running outside rather than on the treadmill. I actually went back and did a Body Pump class that evening. I guess I was really feeling good this day.  Another reason I chose to go back and take that class was so I didn’t have to wake up in the morning to take it.

Since I didn’t have to teach class in the morning on Thursday, I caught up on some much needed sleep then I went for a 7 miles run outside.  I had to teach a HIIT class that evening and one of my co-workers took the class and he told me he was sore the next day. It made me feel like I was doing my job well!

Friday I work up with a sore throat. I thought I may be coming down with something but I had a full day with clients and my class so I was going to try my best to get through it. Luckily no one showed up for class so I was able to leave early and not have to teach.  I came home and slept all afternoon hoping that this would help. When I woke up I knew I had to get at least a mile on treadmill. I am trying to do the running streak. I almost didn’t want to share this with anyone in fear that I would not be able to complete the challenge and set myself up for failure. So far so good, but this had to be the hardest day so far since I wasn’t feeling well. I managed a run/walk for a mile and then I was done. 

Saturday morning I woke up still not feeling the greatest. It was a good thing I had a race that morning or I may have forgo my workout.  It was the Running with the Elves 5k. Even though my sister has run this race before, this was a new to me a race so I didn’t know what to expect. Other than it being pretty cold, I was happy how things turned out.  Recap to come. After the race I napped again all day. Later that evening I watched Christmas movies while wrapping Christmas gifts. -L
