Weekly Roundup: Jan 4th

I really can't believe we're writing our first weekly roundup for January.  Between the holidays and my post-marathon laze-fest, the past few weeks have flown by!  I always enjoy a fresh start for a new calendar year. I'm really looking forward to getting back into a routine, and more specifically a workout routine! I enjoyed my laze-fest but it's time to get back on track and stop being such a sloth. And despite the fact that I didn't do any conventional workouts for most of this past week (I was in Montreal celebrating the New Year), I was still pretty active. I'll share more on our trip in another post...it was really fun!

    1. I would never have gone if I had a race around the corner. I was definitely nervous to fall!

    1. Good job! Sometimes rest after a race is just what the dr ordered

  4. Wow. Ice skating would be a fun workout, though I'd be on my butt more often than not.

    1. Haha that was my #1 goal, Abby-not to fall. And miraculously, I succeeded.

  5. Happy New Year to you both!

    2015 happened to come right in the middle of my taper period, so we are off to a slow start, but that will be ramping up in the next week. And then it's full steam ahead!

    Excited to see what this year has in story for you ladies!
