Happy (very) belated Thanksgiving! Let’s see where I left off….]
Last Wednesday was a rest day. I think I spent the evening getting ready for our trip to see Curtis’s family for Thanksgiving. This mostly involved doing a lot of laundry.
Thanksgiving morning, Curtis and I took Tara for about a run, 4 miles plus 4 gentle pick-ups. I think I have heart rate stats somewhere…
Duration – 1:26:12
Calories – 775
Max heart rate – 193
Average heart rate – 151
Then we made the drive down 95 with the rest of the east coast. Fun times. Then we ate lots of food- Thanksgiving dinner times two. We had one with his mom’s family and one with his dad’s family. I did pretty well with portion sizes, despite his grandmother’s best efforts to pile dessert on my plate!
On Friday, I took Tara for a 50 minute walk, as it was really supposed to be my “rest” day. Then we went geocaching for about 2 hours. Unfortunately, we only found one of the caches we were searching for. Not a very successful trip!
Saturday ended up being a true rest day, we just drove back home and didn’t really do any physical activity whatsoever.
Sunday I took Tara out to meet up with some friends with their dogs, and we did about an hour long hike and let the pups run.
I must admit, my walks, runs, and hikes with Tara are very refreshing from my normal training grind, and I don’t feel like I’ve lost much if any fitness at all.
Yesterday, I did Stage 3 workout A of NROL4W. I’ll update later with the actual workout. Tonight I took Tara for a 5.2 mile run/walk. I have heart rate stats, but I’ll update them later also.
Sorry for the disjointed post, I wanted to get caught up to start the new month.
