|An Awesome View From Our Hike|
We had a huge turkey, sausage stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, salad, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, corn, squash, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots, and a couple other odds and ends, and it was glorious. And of course, we all saved room for the birthday cake. You see, while everyone else was feasting for the well-known holiday, we were feasting for Lindsey's 28th birthday (and a little of the holiday). It was a great day all around.
Earlier in the day I took it upon myself to run my own little turkey trot. This ended up being a whole lot tougher than planned because of the freezing cold, windy weather. I charted off a 1.58-mile course out, giving me almost exactly a 5k in total (out and back), and took off. Right off the bat I knew it would be hard, I was so cold from head to toe! A massive hill around the half-mile mark helped warm me up a little. but the wind coming off the mountains did not help at all. I ended up finished in just under 24 minutes which would have put me at just under a 8-minute mile. No where near as fast as I would like to be running. The part that made this crappy was the couple hours post run. I could net get a full breath of air, it was like my lunges were frozen a bit, crazy. I was happy to be able to get that work in tough, and I have a lot of work to do to get where I want to be with my fitness!
