Am I Goofy or What? Week #12 Training Recap

This recap is brought to you by…
The Ohio Theatre! 
The Theatre was my favorite place to visit as a kid. It was always so beautiful to me as a child – and still is! Although, it is a little smaller than I remember. Still, it has that Olde World charm and prestige that just makes me smile
Vist for more photos and info.

My father got us tickets to see Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. I have seen this play a few times as a child and it has never ceased to be a source of wonder for me. It is probably my favorite Christmastime play. And, it did not disappoint me this year. I loved it and enjoyed getting to see it again, this time with an adult perspective. We had awesome seats, about the third row and pretty much dead center. Michael and I went to the Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner afterwards, which was really good and a nice change from leftover turkey. Thank you to my Dad for a wonderful day. We really enjoyed it!
 Am I Goofy or what?! My Weekly Training Recap:
  • THURS 11/24 Flying Feather Four Miler in 53 minutes 19 seconds; 13:19 pace per mile.
  • FRI 11/25Run for time, 2.66 miles in 45 minutes on Treadmill. 
Not exactly a spectacular training week, I must say. I don’t feel good about it at all. I know I overate this holiday too, which doesn’t help any. This is a new week, though, and I will get back on track! I just want the holiday season to be over, honestly, I am not good at resisting temptation and laziness! And, I really need to work on those healthy eating points for the HBBC Challenge! 🙁
How are you all staying accountable this holiday season? Tell me in the comments!
Until the next mile marker,

    I love the Ohio Theatre! We haven’t been able to go to anything since Avery was born – I’m jealous! 🙂 Glad you had a good time!

    I stay accountable by posting my training on my blog – got that idea from you really. The other thing that keeps me accountable is that mountain climbing is NOT safe if you aren’t trained properly. In fact, the guides were using have the discretion to flat out tell me I can’t go if I’m not in shape. 🙁

    Hang in there – staying accountable? Well, you know that i am struggling this season too as you saw in my own thanksgiving day recap. I am trying to remain in the game by attending my weight watcher meeting every week and I’ve decided to start to really track my points again. For a while bad habits were starting to seep back in so “biting and writing” might make me think twice before I just mindlessly eat. We’ll see.

  3. Wow! That is a gorgeous theatre. Also, you’re doing better than me! I hurt my back so I’ve been sitting on my bum eating candies 🙁 Delicious but ineffective training!

  4. Jenny Wittich says

    I love the Ohio Theatre! I just ordered tickets to see West Side Story in April and I can’t wait. I’m such a sucker for musicals 🙂

  5. That is such a beautiful picture. How fun to go to the theatre and see a live performance. I love doing that but haven’t been for ages.
    I keep accountable by journalling my food intake. You know I am a Weight Watcher, right? There is always a plan to fall back on if I stray too far. Yes, holidays are hard. I have asked everyone not to give us food gifts anymore!
    Don’t be hard on yourself; don’t stress out over it or you will make it worse. Make a goal for the next couple of weeks, write it out and check off the items as you do them… give yourself big glittery stars or checkmarks whenever you do an item on your fitness list.
    I have faith in you, Sara, you can do it! You WILL do it! 🙂

    Staying accountable by looking at my accomplishments and not wanting to fall back at all……and blogging, tweeting, etc. about it!

    I love that play too! I took my mom to see it when she visited on Thanksgiving. Glad you enjoyed!

  7. LaurieBilovesky says

    Did you have to give them that permission or is that how they operate? Reading Into Thin Air right now and this climbing stuff has me all interested!

  8. RunningMandy says

    I just finished Into Thin Air – and had dreams about being under prepared! HA!

    RMI’s (the guide group I hired) number one policy is safety. Their stated goal is to get you up and DOWN the mountain safely. If you are under-trained for a mountain climb, you not only endanger yourself, but everyone else on the team….as such they say: “RMI reserves the right to dismiss the Participant from a trip or to send the Participant to a lower altitude at any time if RMI determines, in its sole discretion, that the Participant is not physically, technically, or psychologically prepared for or capable of participating in the program”
