November Stats & December Goals Plus HBBC Week 2

The only thing that went really well this week was keeping the #RWRunStreak alive.  Keep in mind when looking at the weekly recap below, the rules say a 'minimum' of 1 mile run counts to keep the streak going.  

My stated goal for this week was to get my 5-7 freggies in everyday.  Well, I am sad to say I fell short on that one almost every stinking day.  I blame Trader Joe's & my lack of self restraint for this.  I did manage to get 4 servings in everyday but at the end of the day when I should have been reaching for that 5th serving I was pounding down these bad boys.  mmmm, cookies.

Both Thursday & Friday morning I skipped my AM workout.  I just couldn't pry myself out of bed.

Yet for some reason on Saturday when I can sleep in, I wake up at 5:30am.  What is up with that?!  

Week 2 HBBC Recap:

Monday:  Run 1 mile (Day 5 #RWRunStreak), Walked 1 mile, 15 minutes of weights - 3 points
Tuesday: Run 2 miles (Day 6 #RWRunStreak) - 2 points
Wednesday: Swim 35 minutes (1050 yards), Run 1 mile (Day 7 #RWRunStreak) - 4.5 points
Thursday: Run 1 mile (Day 8 #RWRunStreak) - 1 point
Friday: Run 1 mile (Day 9 #RWRunStreak) - 1 point
Saturday: Run 3.55 miles (Day 10 #RWRunStreak), 60 minutes Yoga - 6.55 points
Sunday: Swim 70 minutes, Run 1 mile (Day 11 #RWRunStreak) - 8 points

Bonus Points: 6 - Daily FB check-in

I did buy a bunch of fruits & veggies at the store today so hopefully I will be able to meet my 5-7 freggie goal this week!  

Now on to the monthly goal recap.  Overall, November was an improvement from October.  Some really nice days over the Thanksgiving week helped get me out on the road to meet my bike miles. The Sunday Masters swim practice helped me finally meet my swim goal this month as well.  

Like I mentioned earlier, I haven't bailed on the #RWRunStreak yet.  My hip is feeling surprisingly good.  I was worried that the daily run would aggravate it but I think the fact that I am only running 1 mile most days helps.  I did a couple virtual 5Ks & a Glow in the Night 5K this month.  I even got a medal in the mail for the Thanksgiving Virtual 5K to benefit LLS.  I mentioned in another post but the Virtual races are all the rage these days.  Check out the Virtual Runs FB page for a large listing of runs - most of them benefit charity.

Here is how November went:
  • Swim (Goal/Actual) - 8 / 8 miles
  • Spin / Road (Goal/Actual) - 60 / 78 miles
  • Run (Goal/Actual) - 40 / 34 miles
  • Pilates Reformer (Goal/Actual) - 4 / 2 - uh yeah, 6AM Thursday class is not working for me lately. 
  • Yoga (Goal/Actual) - 4 / 5
  • Xtreme 30 (Goal/Actual) - 4 / 1 - Oopsie - I forgot I made this a goal in November.
  • November N2U CT Challenge - Nada - I really fell off the wagon on this challenge.  
  • Races - 3 - #Run4NYC Virtual 5K, Leukemia & Lymphoma Thanksgiving Virtual 5K & the Glow in the Night 5K
  • Rest Days - 4 but some days were only 1 mile runs.  Those probably should be counted as rest days. 

Total Miles = 125
Total Time = 29.1 hours

2012 Nike Go the Distance Challenge (Goal / Actual) - 200 miles / 99.82 miles - UGH!  Had I only been paying attention I would have swam a few extra laps on Wednesday to hit the 100 mile mark.  

Now on to my December goals.  This month I am going to make it easy.  

December goals: 
  • Follow through with the HBBC Challenge
  • Keep the #RWRunStreak alive provided it doesn't aggravate my hip
  • Do 4 New to Me Challenges to make up for the past few months
  • Start thinking about what fitness goals I want to accomplish in 2013
Happy December y'all!  


  1. 4 New 2 U Challenges in December? Crazy girl!

  2. Those cookies look so good! I guess it is a good thing we don't have a Trader Joes near us or I would go crazy with those. Great job on the month of Nov and all the miles you did!!

  3. Great job this week and this past month! Fruits and veggies are a struggle for me too.

  4. You're doing an awesome job staying on track! WTG keeping up with the RW Run Streak! I skipped a run when I thought a pain was a possible injury. Happily it wasn't!

  5. Great job on November!! Those candy cane Joe-Joe's sound delicious. Thank goodness we don't have a TJ's here or I suspect those would be evil for me!

  6. Hi! I would love to invite you to enter into my first givaway @ and also to become one of our daily featured runners on Running Bloggers. Interview instructions can be found on

  7. Good job on your November goals! It's funny, I had the same mileage problem last came to 99.9 when my goal was 100 - really?!? I couldn't do that if I tried!

    P.S. Karma is too cute!

  8. You know what tastes soooo good!? I take broccoli and cauliflower and roast them in the oven sprinkled with olive oil, garlic salt and pepper. They taste divine and I swear I would choose those veggies over candy.

    Now, I'm going to head to Trader Joe's for those cookies :)

  9. Way to go!! I'm missing Trader Joe's these days...

  10. dang, we're getting a trader joe's soon. i'm thinking i just need to stay far, far away!
