Just a few glimpses of my backyard this morning... I woke up early to head out to the gym and since all roads were still covered with several inches of snow I quickly settled back into my warm bed. It's still November but a nice snow storm sure makes it feel like the Christmas season! I'll try to make it to the gym tonight. : )
Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. We had an amazing week filled with food, family and fun. We had two big Thanksgiving dinners! So great. Working on my turkey noodle soup for dinner tonight. It's the perfect day for soup and rolls. Mmmm.
I'm sure a lot of you did local Turkey Trots - it was 12 degrees here on Thanksgiving morning so I opted for the gym instead. Did anyone go to their gym on Thanksgiving morning? Holey moley it was like someone said it was the last day ever to go to a gym. Every machine was in use. A bit like New Year's Day at the gym. Everyone gearing up to get their eat on. ; )
It's officially December in my books. I'm once again tapering. It really is an odd feeling to go from recovery week immediately into a taper week. I'm pretty sure I don't have it down quite right. I ran 11 miles on Saturday followed by a killer training session with my trainer. I'm super sore today. We only did a 30 minute session, but everything was 60 second sprints - tricep dips, deadlifts, bosu push-ups, squats, burpees, sit-ups, and sprints on the stairs. I'm tellin ya, I'm still hurting today. Love it!
I've got a crazy week coming up, which I'm sure I'll say every Monday this month, but I will definitely get my miles in.
Tomorrow morning I'll have the winner for my eyelash giveaway! You still have today to enter!!!
Don't be shy - I promise you'll love them!
And a new giveaway tomorrow - a perfect gift for any runner!
On my to-do list this week...update the blog once again - falling leaves is sooo last season.
