The holiday season went off pretty much as planned with only a couple of impromptu drinking sessions. I had the opportunity to weight myself at onsen (pictures forthcoming) and I am at about 78.5 kilograms (173 lbs), down from 82, but still only about halfway to my New Year's goal of 75 kg. And only about one third of the way to my ultimate goal of 70 kg (154 lb).
Ran with Misa on the 2nd and the 3rd at Komazawa Koen and this morning back in my neighborhood. I can feel where the layoff has had a little effect on my fitness level, but not bad considering how much has been imbibed. The distance that I had worked up to by the beginning of December was a little hard this morning, but I'm guessing that it'll be all good again in about a week.
That being said, I have another week until my seminar starts again and so I am going to try to work in some double sessions between now and the 13th. I'll still have work to contend with and ap resentation to finish, but tha lack of official obligations should make it possible for January to be a good month workout wise.
Tonight after work I'm off to Mark's so that we can return some things that we have borrowed and burn some CDs/DVDs of various things for each other. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up on posting pics on Wednesday.
