Happy New Year!

Good evening!  The first 2 days of the new year have been really great!  Yesterday was spent sleeping in, watching the Corner Gas marathon, and dinner and Trivial Pursuit with the in-laws.  Today was a spa day (gift from the hubby for Christmas!) and we’re going to go see Up In the Air later tonight.

The holiday decorations are 1/2 put away, we decided to take the tree down earlier this week and there is a huge hole in our living room where it was!

Yesterday I tried out another Christmas gift, a Garmin Forerunner 305 that I got from my parents-in-law.  It was very cool to see exactly how far we walked, our pace, and my heartrate the entire walk.  the only problem was that the maps on the Garmin software aren’t great, so I see a yellow loop through a blank map.  Maybe I need to upgrade my software?

I set up my half-marathon training schedule into my calendar yesterday, holy overwhelming!  I am so excited to run the Toronto Women’s 1/2 Marathon on May 30th, but boy is it scary to see all those appointments!  I’m going to follow a run-walk schedule for the next 7-8 weeks to build myself up to a steady run, and then the 2:15-2:30 finish training plan on the TO Women’s 1/2 website.

Stay tuned for New Year’s Resolutions!
