Yeah, I missed a day of blogging. Since I turned in my second directed study and then hosted a party last night, I don't feel too bad about it. Also it's hard to feel like your work outs are that important after what happened in CT yesterday. Here's yesterday and today's Gym Christmas updates.
Gym Christmas Day 12!
Work out: 2k swim.
I did basically the same work out I tend to do, except there were no pull buoys, so I made an adjustment:
- 400m freestyle warm up
- 6 X 200ms, alternating swimming and kicking (no pulling).
- 400m free cool down.
Finals week is a great time to swim or do anything at the gym really. I think swimming once a week has been really good for my brainz.
GYMGO: I checked off a Get Wet box that didn't really advance my GYMGO chances.
Then, John and I had some UWO friends over to decorate "Gender Non-Specific Gingerbread Persons," as Matthew likes to call them. I used a recipe from America's Test Kitchen's Family Cookbook, and cookie cutters that my Aunt Becky gave me two summers ago - including a couple of turkeys and menorahs.
Let's count gingerbread cookies and dough as the thing I ate.
The one menorah was turned into a martini glass, about 6 o'clock in this picture.
And one person made this very attractive Ginger Pope.
Gym Christmas Day 13!
Work out: 3-ish mile run with John around the neighborhood. Based on my perceived level of effort, I'd say we did more like 3.2 or so, since it was more like a tempo run. But we didn't map the route before or after, we just ran around for 32 minutes.
GYMGO: Socialcize, aka, GYMGO #2! Woo hoo!
Thing I ate today: definitely no more gingerbreads. I sent the leftovers home with our friends. But I did a healthy portion of the greek olive hummus I got at the store this week. Mmmm olives in hummus.
