It was a grueling week getting ready for Thanksgiving; I won’t lie. Especially since Chester wasn’t doing well the beginning of the week, but oddly enough, he rallied over the weekend.
You don’t have to be a runner to join in & tell us how your week went! So how was my running last week?

First Turkey Trot
I got in more IT-targeted strength training this week, but less Physique57 & my month is almost over. Check them out — they’re running a month for $20 right now which is an excellent price (I am not an affiliate). Something just always has to give.
In fact, the animals ate late Wednesday night because I was just determined to get that strength training in and was doing it at 5 pm. They survived.
The food part of Thanksgiving went pretty well (except the turkey was too salty — I brined it and if I do Thanksgiving again next year, I’ll do that again but cut the amount of salt in half; curiously, the dark meat, which we had for dinner Saturday, wasn’t too salty).
The prep? That was brutal.
Oh, you were interested in activity? I did my first Turkey Trot. You can read more about that tomorrow.
Doing good on my #yogastreak — how about you? Planning to return to some kettlebells now while I still have a little bit of off season left.
Chester was not doing great at the beginning of the week, and I was worried. Read 5 Ways to Know It’s Time if you don’t know Chester’s story.
He doesn’t deal well with warm weather, which we had on Thanksgiving and especially on Friday. In fact, we took them to the park Friday because it was so nice and I ended up carrying him around.
But it cooled down over the weekend and he was a lot perkier. My mom was actually surprised on Thanksgiving (it’s been about 6 weeks since she saw him) that he looks so “good” (totally depends on the day)
A sunny run, finally! I get so sick of the clouds this time of year. Met up with Darlene from My 1st 5k & More — wish her luck on her half this weekend.
We rented Southpaw (great acting, ok movie, the theme has been done to death) and had some yummy buttered popcorn.
And a good sushi dinner Sunday. Sushi rocks my world, always.
