It's also looking like we're going to have a white Christmas! It snowed again this morning- we've got over a foot out there in the downtown area. They said this is the snowiest December on record! The warmer air is moving in though and we'll be getting some rain and the snow will start to melt fast. It was fun while it lasted! It was neat to experience a tiny "real" winter again.
In the spirit of Christmas, I busted out my fiddle last night to play some carols. I played in an orchestra all through middle and high school, but now my violin only sees the outside of the case once a year. Every year I think "I should really play more often" but it hasn't happened yet. It's an old violin that was my grandpa's and it has a beautiful sound. Well, it has potential. Let's just say I'm a little rusty!! I won't make you listen to my playing, but here's a picture..
I do have some training to report before I go:
30 minutes trainer ride-
4.0 miles/40:00/10:00 average pace
Treadmill run with some incline variation to make it slightly interesting. Felt great!
Strength Training in the weight room
Merry Christmas Everyone!!
