Races: None! But I volunteered at one and it was a blast.
How I did on my month challenges:
Balance training: Needs work. I didn't do very well on this item.
Stick to the plan: I stuck to the plan very well until the shin trouble hitting 17 out of 18 days. Perhaps I stuck to it too well. Either way, I am proud of how I committed to it and didn't allow excuses.
Handstands: Rocked it. It was lots of silly funny, but I could see a difference in my balance and core as the month progressed. Still not ready for a Cirque du Soleil audition, but maybe one more month will do it.
Field Trips: I went 1/3 on this one, but in my defense I had 2 of them planned for after the shin issue. I was pretty bummed to miss out on them.
What's new in brew: I've decided to add a beer section to my month recap for new beers that I've enjoyed and remembered to take a picture of.
I really enjoyed this small batch beer and was bummed to find it sold out when I returned to the store.
I was worried the Pomegranate would make it too fruity, but it actually balanced nicely with the strong malt flavor. Thumbs up.
What I am looking forward to next month: I have no races on the calendar, so January will be focused on making sure I am healthy and training. I am going to try to fit in some of my missed field trips from this month if I can. Also, we will be celebrating Christmas in January. The Jayhawks worktrip kept him away until the 31st, so we just went ahead and rescheduled the holidays. I hope people don't mind getting holiday cards in January! :)
How was your December? Did you find time to run during the holidays?
