Happy last day of November! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and some time off work and are ready to take on December! I really like December, which I’ll tell you all about later this week, so I don’t mind at all that it’s on its way!
November ended with 165.6 miles for me, which is right about where I wanted to be, since I’m not training for anything just yet. Let’s take a look at how November’s final week of workouts looked like, shall we? Since I’m doing the Holiday Sweat challenge, I’ve got more pictures than usual. I should always have the chance to win prizes, and maybe I’d be better about taking pictures.
5 miles of “hill” repeats on the treadmill
There’s a 5k Turkey Trot (with a one-mile walk option) in J’s hometown, and his family always participates in it. Because I’m an overachiever, I ran there (3.4 miles), ran the Turkey Trot (which my Garmin said was 3.25 miles), jogged back to find Jordan (1.3 miles), who was walking, and walked the rest of the course with him. So that’s a total of 8 miles running. I didn’t exactly race the Turkey Trot, as the streets were pretty icy and I was more concerned about getting in mileage, but it was still fun.
My sis-in-law took this picture of my backside as I passed them (they were walking the one-mile).
5.4 easy miles and some bodyweight strength work in my in-laws’ basement.
As usual, Colorado couldn’t keep its seasons straight, so this morning’s run was in 18-feels-like-2-degree temps. It was not warm. Here’s the view from today, just up the road from yesterday’s:
After 11 miles, I was a popsicle.
Total: 40.6 miles
Have a great week and a great December, friends!
What was the best part of your Thanksgiving?
