This is why I don’t streak. I took/had to take a four day hiatus in the middle of #neonrunstreak. Mr. Neon texted me Wednesday afternoon and said he felt like garbage. He’s not a big complainer when he’s sick, unlike most men. Man cold? He took Thursday off work and went to the doctor. Poor guy had strep. Yuck. He gets it easily. I think he’s had it 3 or 4 times in his 12 years of teaching. Thankfully, I don’t get it easily and have only had it once in my lifetime. Watch out…I probably just jinxed myself. I was dealing with other issues and just needed some time off. We got most of our Christmas shopping done over the weekend, so that was a big plus.
I’m back on the #neonfitstreak. I did 3 easy treadmill miles yesterday and 30 minutes on the bike trainer this morning. I am officially averaging 15mph on the bike trainer now! Big accomplishment. 2016 was definitely not the year I thought it would be in my fitness life. It has turned into the year of the bike. I’ve made some big gains on the bike. But more than that…I look forward to bike mornings.
I’m starting to get excited about Christmas. We have so many little traditions with the boys. I really worried that last year was our last year of Santa magic, but Runner Boy is still holding on to his beliefs. I think I discovered “the truth” in 3rd grade, so he’s lasted a year longer than I did.
I’m still working on the 2017 goals post. I’ll probably wait until after Christmas to post it. Between Christmas and New Years is when I get all excited about next year’s race plans.
