Did You Miss Me?

Wow, time sure flies when you're having fun.  I can't believe I haven't posted since September!  So what have I been up to?
  • I finished the sweater that was half done in my last post.

  • I participated in a cardigan KAL in October and finished it last week.

  • I just cast on a shawl last week which is halfway done already.

  • I finished the t-shirt quilt and it was delivered last week.  The recipient was very happy and excited about it!

  • I reached my goal of doing one "official (timed)" run each month of this year.  Plus the last race I beat my personal record for 2 miles.
The biggest thing that's happened since my last post, is hubby and I have been taking Tae Kwon Do classes since the beginning of November!  We figured we'd get some exercise and learn a skill at the same time.  I have a love/hate relationship with it right now.  The instructor has a twisted sense of humor and loves to torture us with the cardio portion.  (I think he's related to Jillian Michaels!)  I like that I'm working on getting fit and learning new stuff, but I hate being sore for 2-5 days after.  The Tuesday before Thanksgiving was especially hard (because "we'd all be stuffing ourselves").  My legs finally stopped hurting on SATURDAY!  I keep hoping it'll get easier, but I don't know if that will ever happen.  The other bad thing is that I haven't been doing much slogging since I'm sore from class.  I had been planning on trying my first half marathon in 2013.  I'll have to see how things are going after January and then decide.

As usual I envy the knitting - I am 'slogging' on that....
