Christmas Vacation + winner winner chicken dinner!

I've been sleeping in until 8/8:30 everyday and getting like 8-10 hours of sleep! Getting in some good workouts and vegging out! It is too easy to eat all day long and eat crappy food that is around so I'll be happy once all the crappy food has gone and I'm back on a routine! But I love the extra sleep! I've surpassed my old record in going to the bathroom in the middle of the night - last night 5 times!!! Ahhh!! Sunday I had a great run with my sister at Valley Forge Park. Yesterday I lifted and crossed trained and today swam with my sister at my parents' Y. My legs are tired. My sister is much faster at swimming than me so I had a good workout trying to keep up! I went for a run later on around where my parents live and my legs were TIRED! I couldn't believe it was only 3.27 miles when it felt like I had run at least 7. I felt that way the other day too. It is nice to run outside though, I think it is much better for me because I'm running at the pace my body can handle instead of trying to push it on the treadmill. The only problem is the lack of a bathroom when I go out running. Hope everyone else is enjoying a slow week or some off time!

  2. I agree - I'm looking forward to that day off, too!

  3. WOO HOO!! I can't believe I won!!! I'll email you my address now. Man, this just made my night (doesn't take much, hunh?).

    AND...I can't believe you're pregnant and have that many points for the HBBC. I'm not carrying a baby, what's my excuse??

  4. Looks like you had a great week of workouts! Way to go!

  5. Enjoy those 8-10 hours of sleep now... ;)
    I can't believe you're still running 30 miles/week. That's amazing.

  6. How the hell do you do yoga with a baby inyer belly? You must be super flexible. It fall over and be unbalanced. I can barely balance just me. Again, you are super woman! And lifted weights too? Do you even get Braxton Hicks? I used to get them all the time when I'd try to workout with my belly.

  7. Awesome week! Happy New Year to you. :)

  8. Great job with the crazy mileage. Your gonna end 08 with a bang! You dont have much time before your little one arrives! :)

  9. Way to keep up with the great workouts! Enjoy all that sleeping. It's well-earned.

  10. Nice job with all the workouts. Enjoy all the extra sleep!

  11. You are totally kicking my butt in the HBBC challenge! Glad to read you are getting lots of rest. Happy New Year!

  12. awesome job on the workouts!!! i am very much enjoying my vacation from work too :)

  13. Great job on 30 miles this week! Sleeping in is the best and that extra rest is probably helping to make the workouts/recovery from workouts even better!

  14. I went running today!!!

    Wanna link up for a short one (3-4 miles) some afternoon next week?

    (I'm not sure why I'm posting this on your blog instead of emailing you...)

  15. Good job with the workouts and the sleep.
