Running & Eating During Thanksgiving Week
I'm especially thankful for a week of good running! If you've had to take a rest from running when you'd really rather be running, each running day is even more special.
Here's how I exercised this week:
- Saturday: 6 mile run. Today I ran in the woods for part of my run.
- Sunday: Rest.
- Monday: 6 mile run. Deer sighting!
- Tuesday: 100 burpees - I think. I know it's hard to do math while running, but try it while counting up 100 burpees! This was my first time to try these in a long time and I had to stop to rest often.
- Wednesday: 5 mile run.
- Thursday: 4 mile run in 30 degrees early in the morning. I wore my fleece hat to keep warm for the first time this season. I did Melanie's Melanie's upper body strength training workout for my arms, too. It's a hard workout, but a good one.
- Friday: Rest.
3 Tasty Foods I Made This Week
Muesli - Noms McGee: I ate muesli when we visited Norway and found out that I like this less-sweet version of granola with milk or as a yogurt topping.
Roasted Vegetables - 100 Days of Real Food: Tips on roasting.
Creamy Parmesan Herb Turkey Tetrazzini - Kelly the Kitchen Kop: Turkey leftovers recipe!
Along with some turkey yesterday, I loaded up on vegetables this week: sweet potatoes, zucchini and carrots. If you're tummy is full of healthy food, there isn't a lot of room left over for anything else.
Do you have a favorite turkey or vegetable recipe? Roasted vegetables are easy and the leftovers can be used for days.
