It’s That Time of Year!
The goal is to get a little bit of working out done on each day leading up to Christmas. The idea is that this will not only stave off down-to-the-wire-gift-buying stress (DON’T sit in the parking spot with your reverse lights on for five freaking minutes; get OUT of here! GAAAanrivw;s!), but will also get a jump on the post-holiday blues (Wait, wait, I’m HOW OLD now?) as well as reduce the amount of time, after a moment on the lips, those Christmas cookies stay on the hips (What exactly IS the half-life of a frosted shortbread?).
On the First Day of Fitmas
I had my birthday party, and although I was actually able to meet the Fitmas goal of “sweating once a day,” I only did that because I was running around my “seasonally cozy” apartment frantically lighting candles, baking last-minute brownies, and getting a jump on cocktail taste-testing.
On the Second Day of Fitmas
The morning after my birthday party was scheduled to be my biggest workout of the week: A long bike ride followed by Bikram. Yeah, see, I am getting older, just not wiser. I did manage to get in a few short runs.
On the Third Day of Fitmas
Thankfully race day rolled around and I was actually able to [legitimately] sweat one day of Fitmas. I was starting to earn myself a reputation.
