If we were having coffee I would want to know if you survived the holidays ? It is always a crazy time. I made a point not to over schedule, over promise or over do, so as of January 2nd, I am feeling pretty good, both physically and mentally, ready to go into the new year. If you are interested in French holiday traditions, check out my post here.
If we were having coffee, I would want to know what goals you have set for yourself this year ? My 2016 goals revolve around running and my health, but I also want to travel to two new cities and save & plan for a big vacation.
Over coffee I am sure we would talk about running. How was your 2015, fitness wise ? I ran the most I ever have, 1 156 km (718 miles). I admire those who do triathlons and who ran over 1 000 miles, I don’t know if my body could handle all that exercise.
I am in the middle of training for the Paris Marathon and my mileage is slowly increasing. I have been running faithfully a minimum of 3 times a week since October 1st, with the distance of my weekend runs getting longer, every other week. I am using the Galloway run /walk method, which is kind to my knees, and the very gradual increase in mileage is definitely working for me. Last weekend I did 17 miles through the streets of Paris. 20 miles on the plan next Saturday.
The only difficult part was the cobblestones :
Over coffee, I would tell you that my mom is here for 12 days and we have been having a really great time. I was so happy she could come and spend some of the holidays with us. Of course we never sit still, so we have organized 4 closets, rearranged my buffet / dishes, cleaned my balconies, did a puzzle, played cards, took down the Christmas decorations, walked, visited with friends & family, went to Normandy for a day… I hope when I am her age I have the same energy level. She is amazing.
Finally, yesterday was my two year blogversary ! Thank you for reading, following and commenting, I greatly appreciate the support, positive energy and sense of community.
So all in all, it was a good month. Over coffee, what would you want to chat about ?
