I don't know about anyone else, but for me the holiday season is the hardest time of year to train. Among the abundance of food, holiday parties, and the scampering around gathering Christmas gifts life seems to be amidst with distractions.
If there is ever a time to year to slow things down, this is it. For the last 11 months sweat, blood, and tears were poured into the hundreds workouts that brought our bodies to the best condition that it has seen in years.
Honestly, I don't really mind. My body and mind both need the time to recharge and this is the perfect time of year to make it happen.
So everyone out there go enjoy your holiday season and remember to spend time with your family. Nothing, not even running is more important than family.
