So far, so good in the new year

I have been keeping on track with my workouts so far this year and feeling good about that.  I had a productive weekend - I did one hour fitness test on my bike (on the trainer) Friday and it was really tough.  I ran 6.25 miles yesterday and did 45 min on the endurance setting on the elliptical tonight.  I find I do best when I mix it up and cross train.  I have also had success with Weight Watchers since the plan changed.  I was at goal/lifetime member, but I have dropped a few more pounds on the new plan and feel like that is helping me run a little faster.  So now I need to focus on staying on track and not letting the crazy cold, snowy weather here in New England get me down.

Marathon weekend

No I am not there, unfortunately, but my husband is.  He is doing the Goofy challenge and I can't wait to hear all about it.  I am excited to use the runner tracking tool to see how he is doing.  I am home with my 3 yr old, 6 yr old and a snow storm.  I got 4 miles in yesterday on the treadmill during the 3 yr olds nap, but no luck today.  Early dismissal for my older one and then I was going to still work out during nap time, but she woke her brother up a short while after he fell asleep by being overly loud.  Looks like a later night workout after their bedtime tonight.  Snow through tomorrow afternoon here, so I think we will spend plenty of time outside palying tomorrow, and that should be good exercise:)  I hope everyone who is at marathon weekend achieves your goals and has a great time doing that!
