This makes me a little grumpy cause one more run and I would have had three 50 mile months. I do still have time, it's only 7:00 p.m. and I could go out to get that last 4.1. But I won't. I did 5 this morning in 17* and that was good enough. If it were 50* out, I would totally go, but 15*? nope. I'm badass but not that badass. Who am I kidding? I'm not even a little badass.
Minutes on Bike--170
I've been slacking on the spin bike a bit since the weather has gotten colder. I haven't quite gotten to where I'm heading to the Y on a regular basis to get on the spin bike. I should be much better with this in the next month. A friend of mine is teaching a 5:30 a.m. class on Tuesdays that I'm really going to try to make it a routine to get to. It's nice to get that out of the way for the day.
I love that the Y is open on Sundays again and also they have extended the lap swim during the day so that I don't have to hurry after work to get there.
They've asked me to be on a tennis team….. I'm not sure what I think about that. I don't really love playing tennis when it counts. I just don't have that competitive drive to win matches. I play well, but just get in my head if I start playing poorly. I'll let you know what happens with that. I'm not even sure I'll have time to do it anyway.
Weights--45 minutes + just starting a squat challenge.
I don't think it takes too many minutes, but I've started a squats challenge where day one was 30 squats, 35, 40, 45 and today is 50. (or 55, I can't keep track) Check out the team tough chik page if you want to join us.
Nothing major or even timed, but we did do a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. Our local Y organized a Turkey Trot again this year. It's untimed, no water stations, no medals or prizes. Just show up, donate money to the local food pantry and run. No frills, just fun.
I wanted to go this year dressed as a turkey and had been working on an outfit for the past couple of weeks. My kids were mortified and refused to take a pic with me or even run with me. Party poopers. I wanted them to dress as pilgrims and chase the turkey (me), but nope. Maybe I'll bribe them next year.
that's a pretty epic turkey if I do say so myself. note the wattle. there's a beak on the visor that you can't see very well.
I have no idea how fast I ran it. It was untimed, as I said. I also was ahead of my daughter and turned around to find her and run with her a bit so I ran a little over the 5K. Great fun. Great day. Great amount of money raised. We raised over $2100 with around 160 people showing up on Thanksgiving morning. Good stuff.
Songs I love:
Am I too old to love Ke$ha? Cause I pretty much love all her songs. Although, technically, this one is Pitbull's song but Ke$ha makes it.
Other Notable Events in November
Root canal went just fine. Really, a piece of cake. In fact, it was much much easier than the original filling for the cavity in that tooth. I just have to go back in a couple of weeks to have it finished. Then the crown. Then I will have no money in my health savings account.
Danielle and I are hosting a challenge on instagram called the #holidayselfiechallenge. It's just a little thing to get you in the mood for the holidays. Or to show how grinch-y you are. Either way. Just post a selfie on instagram doing some holiday something or other, tag me @ltlindian2 and Danielle @RTdanielle09 and use the hashtag #holidayselfiechallenge. Now through 12/5. Or longer if you want. Whatever. No prizes or anything. Although I might come up with something for the picture that makes me laugh the most.
Join us. It's fun.
