I had to go to Walmart for some hunting supplies yesterday and it was stacked. I had the same thought WTF are these people doing wasn't Christmas the day before.

~2-3 mile hike along the Potomac River at the Great Falls National Park with the family. A lot of fun climbing along the rocks with my brother and proud that Connor was able to hold his own for the most part.

It's pretty bizarre that it's almost 3 days till the new year and it was 60+ here. I'm not complaining but on the other hand am a little bit concerned. After gorging myself at Old Country Buffet with my family before they left for NY I had to go do something with myself today.

Ran 12:00 - 1.56 miles (first mile in 7:37, then 0.56 miles in 4:27)
rest - 2:00
Run 3:00 - 0.4 miles
Rest 20 minutes (walked with Connor and his new bike to the play ground)
Hill sprints x 12 (on the minute, sprint ~9 seconds, walked back down ~25 seconds)

Great day outside.

Notes:
-My legs felt like lead weights, maybe it was the buffet or maybe it was the lack of warmup I have no idea but the run felt somewhat laborious, not like the last run at al where it felt light. I'm hoping to squeeze in a run today as well, we'll see how it feels. That first mile felt good but then it just fell off quickly after that 7:37 for the mile then it dropped to a 8:45/mile pace for the last half mile. Not happy with that.

It is 80 and sunny here in Central FL. I say enjoy it. Nice work yesterday on the running.

No run today, spent most of the day outside with Connor and Laurie. An hour at the playground then we drove back to the lake and took a 1.5 mile walk along the fitness trail, the first 3/4 mile was easier than the 2nd since the 3nd 3/4 mile I had a 3.5 year old on my shoulders. A great day outside.

That last 3/4 of a mile tends to produce soreness in the traps for some reason. Do you guys have big plans for new years?

Neck too!

No big plans, Hunter and Chase are with their dad in NC and right now we aren't sure if they are coming back New Years Eve or New Years day. Laurie would drive to meet them halfway so either way she'll be driving ~7 hours either day.

The day seemed to be consumed with number crunching (preparing budgets for when I go off to school) and errands. Not much time for much else, only managed a short stint at the play ground for Connor. I promised him tomorrow would be better. Less laptop time for dad means more fun for Connor.

Not much unless you count champagne drinking as an activity! Laurie picked Hunter and Chase up today so Connor and I got some quality time together walking around at the mall and the play place there (the temp here dropped from 65 on Sunday to 30 on Thursday).

Nada, spent most of the day either playing one of my new Christmas gifts on the 360 or with the kids at the playground trying to figure out Hunters boomerang along with some laser tag.

Happy New Year. How did the boomerang work out. Can you believe people actually hunt with that kind of a thing. Based on my experiences with one I would starve.
