Apparently my 15k took a bit more out of me than I expected, so I took an extra rest day. And because I’d been feeling a bit eh, I thought I’d run on the treadmill. Not as much getting sweaty then chilled.
But it was sunny. I warmed up with Bandit, who appreciated no coat & went with me 2.25 miles — longest in quite some time for him. And even though I had 4 on the plan, I did 5. I was tempted to stick to the 4 because I ended up running at lunchtime and I was hungry. But it was just such a nice day and I felt a lot better. Thankfully I felt fine the next day, too.
Another super windy and cold day. Despite the bright sunshine, with a gazillion errands to run and chores around the house, I chose to stay on the treadmill. It takes far less time to throw on a pair of shorts and a top then bundle up for “feels like 20s”.
I “ran” out of time and had to cut this run a tad short. I never do that, but I just didn’t have enough time to get in a longer run.
Some of the Wineglass girls braved the frigid cold — yes, it really feels like winter already — to get together for a group run. While the rest got together for coffee/breakfast afterwards, I had to head straight home because we were leaving for Bennington, VT.
Favorites of the week
Going away the weekend before Thanksgiving wasn’t my idea, but I made the best of it, despite nasty weather, with good eats, contributing to the local economy, and some movies.
Since we just got home, here’s a little photo journal of the trip:
I downloaded Megan Leavy, which we watched Saturday night. A cool story — the movie was good, but nothing that special. We also went to see “Thor Ragnarok” today. There wasn’t really a whole lot of plot, but it was entertaining and Cate Blanchett makes a great villain.
And that’s a wrap
Let’s get the conversation started:
Would you go away the weekend before Thanksgiving if you were hosting?
Are you a fan of Marvel tv & movies?
Watcha making for Thanksgiving?
