Catching up...

I'm still alive! ... struggling through anyways.

I've been here & there with the Holidays kicking off, being on vacation, & fighting some dizziness & tooth pain  - because life always has to have some sort of dramatic effect happening, right?

But I've still been working out.

let's do the fastest recap in the world.

here's a little view of last week

11.23 to 11.29.15:

I love I got a new wipe board that I can keep track of my weekly workouts.

I feel so fancy.

I was so happy when it was actually nice & warm on Thanksgiving where I could do a run for the Gone for the Run Virtual 5K

Turkey medal:

I hadn't run in the LONGEST...

& my knee still acted up.

Yes way...


There's that whole life & dramatic effect thing again I guess.

That was a tad discouraging because I already have my training schedule marked on a 2016 calendar for my half marathon in April.  I thought all the rest doing other exercises would have made my knee better.  Drats.

I'm not going to let it discourage me. I'll make adjustments.  Even if I have to walk the whole half marathon, I will... I'm doing it - no matter what.

But anyways - it did feel good to get 3.11 miles under me for Thanksgiving

Turkey trot:

... I totally signed up for this just because of the socks.

But it also earned me a piece of pumpkin pie... which I made... & was the most delicious thing I ate all Thanksgiving day!

How was your Thanksgiving?  
I've seen all the Turkey Trot posts - love it!

Hopefully I'll get back in the swing of things now that life is getting back into its groove

  5. I absolutely adore your socks! How cute:). And I'm always down for a reason to have pumpkin pie.

  6. My Thanksgiving was okay. Lunch with the in-laws at a cafeteria. Then packing to come home and lots of time watching the ocean from our balcony.

  7. I love the socks!! The weather was superb that day, wasn't it? I did the Fast Freddie's 5 miler and was able to take some time off my PB (woot!) but then I went and overate at my in-laws house. So there you go. :)

  8. The socks totally rock! Sorry your knee isn't feeling better when you run, hope that gets better before your half marathon! Love your race look fabulous :)

  9. I'm glad I am not the only one who has been a little MIA in the blogging world lately:) Hey life happens, right!
    Sorry about the tooth pain, hope you can get in and get that fixed soon. Although I am like a week behind, so you probably already have:)
    Very awesome about the turkey run, so fun! Love the picture!!!!
    Bummed your knee is causing you troubles still! I know you don't want to have to go, but visiting a Dr. might be the thing to do. But pick a running doctor, or one who is a runner!! Good luck!
