Ultimate Coffee Date for December

It’s that time of the month…

and that time of year

to join up with Coco & Deborah for their ultimate coffee date.

1.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I taken up yoga again.  I used to go weekly and then my favorite yoga instructor left and I stopped going.

I’m not one to do things at home. I need to sign up for a class and then I’ll go.

I started with Cat Yoga and it was fairly enjoyable… very low key so a good way to start up again.

that’s me in the pink skirt…thanks Lloyd for the pic

I’ve gone to Hot Yoga too …the participants can bend like pretzels but I do what I can and I do enjoy the warm temps.

I also attended a Yoga for Runners class which focused on the lower back/spine …just what I needed. (I plan to attend another one fro upper back and shoulders.)

And of course another Cat Yoga class at the same location as the Yoga for Runners class.

Do you do yoga? If you do, do you do it on your own or sign up for classes?

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that though it’s no surprise but I am hating the cold temps and early winter weather conditions.

My biggest problem is that I have amnesia when it comes to dressing…I am either overdressed or cold.

too warm in that heavy vest

Do you remember how to dress to run from season to season?

3.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that in addition to hating the weather, I despise the lack of daylight.  It cuts down on the places that I can safely run after work.  There’s only ONE lit up route and that’s UAlbany….BORING.  I like to run in different places.

I may have to get up early and run before work. UGH!!!

Do you run outside in the dark?

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am back to traveling for work.

Last month it was 3 days in NYC.  Not complaining…

I met up with running friends Cari and Elizabeth and also saw HAMILTON!!!

Work travel can have its perks now and then.

This week I am back in NYC for 5 days.

Good news is that in Manhattan, there are loads of places to run with lights… and of course at Christmas time, lots to see and do.

Anyone else love to visit NYC at this time of year?

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that now that my marathon training and marathon is over, I’m debating a new challenge for 2020.

One half marathon each month???

I already have one planned for January (Fred LeBow in NYC), February (ZOOMA in Bermuda), March (NYC Half), April (Helderberg 2 Hudson) and May (Sacandaga or Steel Rail)….

What’s 7 more?  LOL

What do you think of my my goal? Has anyone ever run 12 halfs in one year?

Of course, I wrote this post before I had a sore foot….all these racing plans may be on hold….

It’s also Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.

Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here!

  1. This is a great time to visit NYC if it’s not having a cold spell. I love the holiday lights and storefront windows.
    I started doing yoga at home with Rodney Yee videos but now am hooked on hot yoga classes.

    Thanks for joining the coffee date!

  2. I keep meaning to do more yoga but have been pretty terrible about it thus far. Cat yoga sounds like fun! ❤ I have two cats, so I guess I kindasorta get that at home, haha.

    I hate the lack of daylight too. :[ I'm a lot happier when it's sunnier outside!

  3. I’ve never attempted 12 half marathons in 12 months, but I don’t have 12 half marathon possibilities (without travel) to make it work. One year I did do 12 “new” races in a year…that was fun since I have so many tried & true events that I do every year. It was nice getting to some different races.

  4. Last year I ran 6 half marathons in 12 months…I couldn’t do one per month. It’s too much for my body. Heck, just running one last week really sent my body into a tailspin. I’ll just cheer you on from the sidelines!!!

  5. I love your new goal! I hope your foot cooperates so you can do it. I don’t think I’ve run more than 6 or 8 halfs in a year. The darkness is my least favorite part of winter. Sunlight changes everything.

  6. I absolutely love NYC this time of year but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll get there this season! The days are going by so quickly!
    I too always forget how to dress for cold runs. I always over dress like I am in the tundra and it never seems to be that bad outside! I think it’s a mental thing. I forget that when its 40 degrees outside our bodies run much warmer!
    Thanks for linking up and I hope your foot gets better soon! -M
