And, I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m very thankful for my family, friends, and, of course, all of you!
Since my last “Week in Review” post (just a few days ago), I did a lot! And, I’m excited to share my happenings from the last week with you.
Let’s get started!
I have just one more run until Dopey Challenge Training week #25 is complete! This week seemed to fly by. I’m not sure if it was the lower mileage (compared to last week) or the short work week, but I’ll take it! I felt great during each training run this week, and I’m ready to do my maintenance run tomorrow.
- Friday: 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Saturday: 8 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Sunday: 18 miles around the neighborhood
- Monday: Rest day!
- Tuesday: 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Wednesday: 8 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Thursday: 5 miles around the neighborhood
I did 30 minutes on the exercise bike today, followed by 10:00 of walking on the treadmill and some leg exercises. Tomorrow, I have a 12-mile maintenance run, and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. Slightly chilly, but definitely warmer than it’s been the last few days. With that being said, I’m hoping to do my maintenance run outside tomorrow morning! Let’s hope it works out!
Obviously, the highlight of my week was spending time with my family on Thanksgiving. Most of my extended family (on both sides) lives 2+ hours away, so I rarely see them outside of the holiday season. That’s why I love going up to my grandparents’ houses each year!
This year, my mother’s side of the family did not have a Thanksgiving dinner because my grandfather has been in and out of the hospital. Instead, we all visited my grandfather on Thanksgiving morning. I’m very happy I was able to see him!
After that, we headed over to my dad’s side of the family. Almost all of my cousins were able to come, which is always fun. We are all very close in age, so it’s great to be able to hang out with them each year.
And…each year, my cousin, who is a beautician, likes to experiment on our hair. Needless to say, this year’s hairstyles had a 90s theme!
I didn’t read any of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix this week. We puzzled each day during lunch (at work), and then I totally forgot to bring the book home when I left on Wednesday. But, that’s ok! We have a few free weekends coming up, so I should be able to get through this book before the holidays!
Yesterday was Thanksgiving….enough said.
Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?
YES! Today, I will be heading to a local brewery to watch Steve’s cousin play in a band. He’s a very talented musician, so it will be fun to watch him play with Steve’s family! Additionally, Steve and I plan to do our last round of touch-ups and cleaning tomorrow, so I’ll be able to take our post-painting photos! I can’t wait for you all to see our finished project!
What are you most excited for this weekend?
