January well under way now!

I just wish it would bring more TIME with it. I would think that with the quiet winter days on us, we would have more time. But rather I feel like I have less time than ever and Im not even really that busy ;)
For example it's been an entire day since I started this post.  I just don't know where the time goes. Mostly wasted away :(

We are well into January.  An entire week of it, actually.  And It's been a hard adjustment. Weather has gotten much colder, it's dark, and mornings are starting before dawn even thought about arriving :( We come home often in the dark just like we left, and there is no motivation to get anything done :(

I love winter. I really do. Actually I would be happy if there were enough snow to DO something but there hasnt been much yet and it doesnt stay.  My snowshoes are just dying for a spin :)

So since New Year's Day the runs have been happening although P90X isnt regularly I still intend to get some workouts in.  Especially on days that are too nasty to run outside.  But I do find it hard when home to find that chunk of time to do the workout, that I can steal away while at work by working through my lunch hours.  :)

Monday was 2 ice times; noon Christmas hockey and supper time practice for Annika. Christmas hockey was fun; will miss it.
Tuesday morning school started up for the kids and after Scott took them off I got a P90x workout in. Plyometrics didn't seem so hard but I was sooooo sore for the next few days; abnormally sore. Thinking it wasn't just the workouts but rather the way my joints and head ached maybe a bit of a virus. Either way so sore to walk and going down stairs was hard. :(

But running was not as hard so I got in a run from work. Dara and I went 7.75 km to her place and fed the horses and back to work. 48:51 minutes not bad considering I'm sore and she is sick; there was a lot of snot.

Wednesday was just a quick run at the end of the day. I was soooo sore and it was freezing cold out. Holly was home sick for the day :( classes started Wednesday. After classes and getting ready for next day I managed to get out for 5.3 km In 33:48. Not great but done :)

Thursday morning was rushed; didn't manage a run til noon when the snow started; Lavinia And I had a beautiful run to the top of the park and back in light fluffy snowflakes. it was a little bit slippery but really fun. 7.2 km In about 44 minutes. Nice.

Friday started with a 7 am skate and ended there. Busy and maybe a rest day is ok. 50 minutes skating is a great way to start a day.

And up to Saturday; 7 am hockey scrimmage was disappointing as pretty much everyone was there, so we sat on The bench for EVER. I prefer being short handed ;) I'm selfish!

Before supper I got in a run; 8.5 km pretty quick (since dark was coming ) 50:30 minutes including stopping and talking to Scott :)

Not much actually planned for the week; I wonder if I would be more likely to work out if I wrote my plans down?

Now looking for some snow!

We have lots of snow... well, certainly enough for snowshoeing and skiing of all sorts. The upcoming weekend will be spent cross-country skiing for me (and Skye) while Jeff, Hannah and Ashton ski downhill. I am not that brave... our hills are HUGE down here.

Sounds like a great week to me... there were some great calorie burns I am certain.

have a great day!
