Today I was going for an outside run and saw the package come in the mail from a company that piqued my interest - the only thing I really wanted was a Garmin this year so I did some research and knew Bill got me it - oops, such a party pooper! I tried it out today - the 405, and it's awesome! Too bad I was going so damn slow that I was getting mad seeing my pace, ugh! I am looking forward to using it and getting speedy again hopefully soon! What did you ask for this holiday season?
This week I finished out with only 14 miles. As hard as I am trying not to track my mileage or care, that seems so low! My body is tired from switching it up this week and I definitely felt it in my legs. After sprinting the 5 miler on Sunday and pushing myself, I went on to swim with the faster lane people this week all 3 days. I also did yoga and lifted so every muscle in my body just feels sore. I don't even feel like I worked it THAT hard but I guess all of the different muscle groups were woken up again!
Running so slowly today has got me nervous and wondering how I'll get some speed going come January. I hope to make the speed sessions with the running club weekly - what else can I do for speed?

The second Galloway video below- have you used this method? It just gets me excited to see Disney world in the background.
