I must admit that I have to fight my inner neurosis to go out and log a few extra miles instead of visiting with out-of-town family. How can I let myself relax when I have a race coming in 5 months? (sarcasm... but this actually comes into my crazy mind!) I've eaten a bit differently, stayed up a bit late, and am not in race shape.. but a few low key (or, gasp, OFF) days will probably do me good in the long run. The holidays come at a perfect time to allow for a bit of leeway and celebration, so take advantage of it!

Have a great holiday season and enjoy the New Year! Celebrate 2014 and take a step back from the relentless pursuit of fitness. If you have big goals for 2015, take the time to enjoy the people around you who are going to help you make them happen. There's plenty of time for training, focus, and stress just around the corner.
