I ran 18 miles. That's my longest run to date. I'm running the Disney Marathon on January 13th, and it will be my first time conquering 26.2 miles. I'm right on plan, and I will readily admit that these are just as challenging (more mentally than physically to be honest) as you would imagine they would be. Your mind can only handle what you're putting your body through for so long. Then it becomes a fight between heart and mind. On Saturday my mind won.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and doing my other favorite Saturday activity: watching football with Tim.
Alabama had a major win over Auburn! Roll Tide. And Tim's Florida Gators made sure to pave their way to the Sugar Bowl. Now we (Bama fans) need a big win in Atlanta this weekend at the SEC Championship so we can show Notre Dame our stuff in the National Championship game. It's going to be a great game between Alabama and Georgia! I can't wait to watch.
On Sunday Tim and I came home to Tampa. We were so thankful to one of our friends for coming to pick us up at the airport, and we stopped on the way home at Mellow Mushroom. Yum. I got a small Greek salad and a small Magical Mystery Tour pizza. It was delicious; I've never had a pizza with jalapenos in it, but I will definitely be having it again.
Since then I've been doing work around the house and catching up on life. I'm looking forward to Christmas break where I can do a few things that I've been neglecting being out of town and busy at work.
This week I'm looking forward to putting up the tree, putting away fall decor and getting out Christmas decorations, and a cookie swap on Sunday! I just need to pick out some cookies.
I'm also looking forward to getting onto the clean eating train with my Elf 4 Health Challenge (starting with meatless Monday tomorrow) and staying on my workouts to earn my Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge points. I need the motivation right now to cross train and to eat healthy. I'm putting in too much time training for my marathon to waste it with bad food.
