Ah well–I didn’t have time to go out running on Christmas eve and Christmas day, but we had a blast! I also received a headlamp (and finger lights!) as a gift. Hurrah!

So, tonight I went out running with my new headlamp and finger lights. I walked for 6 minutes; ran for 8.5 minutes; walked for 2.5 minutes; ran for 8.5 minutes; then walked home for a total of 30.5 minutes. It snowed about a half inch Christmas eve, and unfortunately not all of the sidewalks were cleared, so I had to be careful, but I’m so glad I went out!

Run time: 17 minutes

Walk time: 13.5 minutes

So again I forced myself out. I’ve been in a really down mood lately (I have depression) and it gets really hard to leave the house, but I tell myself running will save my mental attitude, and that gets me out.

It was very nice–in the 60s (F)! I walked for 6 minutes; ran for 8.5 minutes; walked for 3 minutes; ran for 8.5 minutes; then walked home for a total of 30 minutes.

Run time: 17 minutes

Walk time: 13 minutes

I won’t be able to run tomorrow, but I’m hoping to run in the morning on Christmas Eve. I usually prepare our Wigilia dinner–the Polish version of the 7 fishes Christmas Eve dinner–but I should be able to get in a run, as I get up early that day.
