    What a great way to ring in the new year! I was long asleep by midnight, though I did see the ball drop at 9:00 west coast time. Perfect for this sick girl. Happy New Year!

    Just pinned that workout, and I’m doing it tomorrow! I’ve been slacking on strength workouts, especially with the gym closed over the holidays. I’m terrible at getting in the at-home strength routines, good thing Tina’s boot camp starts soon!
    I’m so impressed you ran at midnight… I’d say it definitely counts for 5bythe5th! But another 5k is a good plan, too… thanks for sharing. And Happy New Year!

      I will admit that I took a pretty long nap in the afternoon so I was wide awake at midnight. I wanted to sign up for Tina’s bootcamp again but decided to hold off. I think that I need to take this month to hone in on my own workouts and get over some nagging aches and pains. But I will run my 5 miles!

    OOh—that workout looks like a great addition to my training! Our NYE was low key- my daughter wanted to stay up for the first time- and then today I ran, weighed in at weight watchers, and got some work done. And now I am off to find out about the 5bythe5th!

    I love workout mind tricks! I like to play games where I do weird countdowns… Intensity based on songs and not a specific time, etc. It’s always mind over matter! ;-) Happy New Year!

    How I wanted to run but due to the injury and re-injury of my back, I could not. I missed those fireworks this year in PP!

    Wishing you a wonderful 2013 and hopefully we’ll get a chance to catch up in person sometime soon.

      I can’t believe I never watched the PP fireworks before! And yes, I hope that we have a chance to catch up in person soon.

    Your run sounds awesome although I would have a hard time staying up that late! Great workout to do anywhere at any time. Pinned!

      My secret for staying up that late was a super long afternoon nap :-)

    I absolutely love the way you kicked off 2013! (and the shirt you did it in!). How fun. That’s one of the big advantages of being in a big city–so many opportunities at your doorstep.

    Thanks for the great workout. I am trying to add in one to two new strength workouts each week this year to keep things challenging for my body. I fall into the same old, same old pattern all too often and it’s not doing much for my muscles!

      You mean not every city/town has a midnight run on New Year’s Eve? I think that I’ve been living in the big city too long now!! :-) I also fall into ruts and I’m trying to be a bit smarter about how I’m approaching my workouts.

    I usually fall asleep before midnight also but I actually stayed up this time. We were catching up on The Walking Dead so it was pretty easy to stay awake.

    Awesome!

    I can’t believe I stayed up past 12am! lol

    It was a great NYE spent in my PJs :)

    I love the fireworks!!! We don’t have fireworks in my tiny tiny hometown (where my fiance and I stayed in and watched movies all night). I agree that this year should be more about listening to our bodies and just doing what feels right! I’m not one for challenges lol! Have a wonderful day!!

      Thanks Andrea! I’m don’t do a lot of challenges but I totally get sucked in by the yoga ones. I’m trying to step away!

    I loved running New Year’s morning – even after a few rum/Coke Zeros at NYE the night before I was ready to kick off 2013 right! ;) Fireworks were so fun to watch on our way home from our friends’ house – they were everywhere! xo

    Bravo to you for running on NYE. I was cuddled up on the couch.
    I pinned this workout for a cold weekend where the last thing I want to do is run outside! :)

    I’m definitely getting older. I couldn’t stay away long enough to see the ball drop. I think I was in bed by 11:00 but I love the way you started the year. I bet it felt great!

    Happy new year Christine!

      I’ve only done a NYE midnight run one other time and I was MUCH younger. This time, I wasn’t so keen on heading out the door at 11pm. Thanks Katie and Happy New Year to you too!

    Nice job in the NYE 5k! And yes, sometimes I just have to tell myself “10 minutes, give it 10 minutes.”

      Thank you Lisa! I probably spent more time than I should have trying to format that silly workout image! I think that I literally glowed in the dark in that bright bright orange! Happy New Year to you!

    Happy New Year, friend!!! I just pinned your workout (and I think I pinned it to a food board. Woops. Haha.) and can’t wait to use it to get ideas. I have a semi-plan set for when I’m feeling strong enough to actually do more than walk, so I’ll have to see what I can sneak in. ;)

    Unfortunately, my New Year’s Eve was spent deciding whether or not to go to the emergency room with this sickness!! :( So glad I’m on the upswing!

    You are awesome to do a 5K at midnight! I’d be SO not wanting to run at that time, and selfishly, rather be having a glass of champagne or 3 ;-) BUT what an experience and a way to see the fireworks in a whole new way! I am also so excited for the year ahead and fresh start :)

      Believe me – running was the last thing on my mind but I had made plans with some friends. Accountability – it works! I also look a LONG nap in the afternoon which really made it possible for me to stay up. I’m really excited for the year ahead too!

    Perfect timing for me!! I am really making an effort to add more strength / resistance training to my workouts – rather than just running and stretching. I will definitely try these out =)
    Love the way you kicked off the new year! I’ve always wanted to do the Midnight Run in Central Park…maybe when the kids get a little older. Although I know I would get SUCH slack from my family for missing out on the family celebration =)

    I have not done ANY cardio in almost 2 weeks due to my crazy plaque like illness! A little yoga this morning was the first I have done of anything at all! I am saving this for when I feel a little better. Your hotel workout is still one of my favorites!

    You motivate me so much to work out. I’ve been subbing at the kids’ school, so there hasn’t been time for long quiet runs. I might just try your circuit workout tomorrow.

    p.s. Cute jacket. Pretty color!

        The subbing is great. I’m thinking it might be a good way to support the writing habit. Being with kids never feels like work to me! :)

    Sounds like a fun new year’s adventure! I was sick on NYE, so was in bed by 8:30…but the fireworks woke me at midnight, so I woke up to tell the hubs happy new year!
