EricG's Running Tips #28 Maintaining Through The Holidays? Yeah Right!

The holiday season is in full swing, and as always the hot topic besides how many days in a row retail stores can stay open, is how is one suppose to maintain a balance of fitness with all the eating and drinking. The typical answer is exactly the same as the rest of the year, but that is boring.

My opinion on this one is you don't. It is just too much damn fun to celebrate with family and friends. Get out there and do the best you can to off set all those nasty but joyous calories ingested through your  favorite holiday desserts and beverages. Just don't beat yourself up over it. I use this time of year as an excuse to let loose and get it all out--actually to get it all in:). Additionally I think its a great time to allow your body to recover from a tough year.

I may put on a pound or two, I may lose a couple steps in my running pace, but So What!!!

It is 100% worth it to me. I am going to enjoy this holiday season with my family and friends and not regret it for one moment.  However you choose to enjoy the holidays, my family and I wish you all the best and are looking forward to sharing our experiences with you in the coming year.

Peace
