On Monday I made my way back to Booty Barre after trying this workout at a NH Blog & Tweet event. Becki must have taken it easy on us that day, because after just a 50 minute session this time, I was sore for two days!
Tuesday was the unofficial Christmas Eve Family 5K. My husband and stepdaughter joined me for a morning Santa hat run to the beach and back. Surprisingly we only got honked at once.

Before the unwrapping of Christmas presents and chaos began on Wednesday, I did a quick strength workout in the basement.
While in Massachusetts on Thursday my brother-in-law offered to lead us on a morning-after-Christmas run through Forest Park on the Bright Nights 5K course. It was the perfect follow up to a busy holiday visit. Later we spent an extra 1.5 hours in the car trying to get back to NH during a small snow event, so it was good that we ran before leaving.
Friday was a rest day except for another quick strength workout.
I did my long run on the Manchester Rail Trail on Saturday morning so that mrC could run the first 4 miles with me. The first mile of the trail was a frozen icy mess, but then we found that someone had hand-shoveled a 1.5 mile path large enough for running. Rather than struggle on the trail, I opted to run the last three miles on downtown streets.

Sunday was another day of strength followed by a football game workout from Amanda at RunToTheFinish. She always has the best workouts!
With only days remaining, the Chilly Challenge has begun to heat up. There are about 12 challengers (and several very close) in the running to win a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 17s Will it be you? Have you posted at least 5 Instagram photos of the daily challenges? Check out some of my favorites from last week.
Did you workout more or less over the holiday?
