I know, I know.
Usually Fridays are dedicated to food.
But considering the fact that right now the absolute last thing on my mind is food (seriously – I’ve never been this not-hungry in my life), I thought y’all would be good with postponing for a day.
That means it’s time for a race recap of the 2nd Annual Treadmill in the Basement Turkey Trot. Because if It’s Real, it gets a recap.
Not Real = No Recap.
Like I mentioned yesterday, my body decided that Thanksgiving morning was the day where it was actually going to give sleeping-in a fighting chance. When I opened my eyes and saw light streaming in through our curtains, my first thought was Not Good.
So I rolled out of bed, threw on my running gear, and hustled downstairs to the treadmill.
This was also the point in time where I realized that my bib was a little bit large and that instead of wearing it on my leg, I was going to have to go front and center-first 5k style.
I was not so excited about that.
Anyway, the week after the Monster Dash, I realized that I should work on managing expectations a little bit and so instead of doing a half-marathon, I went for 10 miles.
10 miles. It’s my favorite distance. Not so long that it’s a day-ruiner, long enough that there’s some
sweating commitment happening.
It validates the fact that we eat two Thanksgiving dinners.
Most rational person on the planet. Right here.
What I learned? My basement is REALLY not a good space for taking pictures. Which is probably why outside of this whole treadmill-snaps thing, I avoid it at all costs.
My final time? 1:30:00. And surprisingly (considering the bar hopping that happened the night before) it felt GOOD. No, I am not adopting beer as the new carb-load.
When you finish your own Turkey Trot, you should probably wear all the medals. It’s hardware time.
Did you move your body on Thanksgiving?
Black Friday: Day of Shopping or Day of Recovery?
Since we did our Black Friday shopping tres early (the outlet mall opens at 9 PM, so we just drove up when dinner was finished), I would like to think that today was actually dedicated to recovery.
