Saturday: 16 Miles with 12-15 at 7:20
I ran the first 10 with Adam and Curtis and then the last few with Adam. With some doubtfulness, we were able to pick it up for the three miles and clocked a 7:11, 12, and 07. I don't think Adam was too psyched about the last pick up mile.
This run felt great and those paced miles made the workout count. With this run came a stomach ache for the rest of the day which hasn't happened in a while. With constant trips to the bathroom, I was able to tame it by the evening before the holiday party.
Sunday: 10 Miles Easy in 1:26
and some Nordic skiing on the golf course
Monday: 8 Miles with 4 x20 seconds strides and Core with Strength
Shenanigans of this weekend...
It started off with the party cart which is exactly what you think it is. An office wide cart that travels from department to department with wine, beer and snacks appreciating what everyone does for this school. It usually goes along with some 'ugly Christmas sweaters,' reindeer antlers, Santa hats, music and more. This cart lead me to two glasses of wine and eventually to the bar. Considering how exhausted I was beforehand, this was not the road I had planned on taking, but was the one I traveled and have no regrets. Since the party cart started early, I was out of the bar by 8ish and in bed full of pizza by 9! Now that's a Pearson night out-- and like I kept saying on Friday for some reason. It's a Pearson World.
After a horrible night's sleep per usual after drinking, we cooked up some poached eggs for 16 Miles. Once our food digested, Adam and I headed to Curtis's to pick him up for the first 10 miles. Between the three of us and the non-stop chatting, the miles flew by. I was so excited to have some company for these miles. Following the run, the stomach cramps set in and Adam made this delicious buffalo chicken sandwich which I could hardly eat-- not usual. I lay down some more before we meandered around town getting some last minute errands done.

|Sorry for the dark pictures. I am hoping you can see Adam's awkward facial expression.|
|Kate's gettin' groovy|
|Let the dancing begin|
|Each one is individually crafted|
It's snowing now, lets hope it continues through the week for a very white Christmas
