Its hard to believe that another week has already come and gone! This past week has been super busy, and included a trip to Illinois to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Between bad weather in DC, changing our flight, and the holiday itself, it was one crazy week. I’m sure you noticed that I didn’t blog much last week. That wasn’t my intention, but things always seem to be extra busy around the holidays.
Despite traveling and how busy the holiday week kept us, I’m super proud of myself for keeping up with my workouts, especially while we’ve been in Illinois. Depending on how our travel day goes today, I may have two rest days in a row, but I’m optimistic that I’ll have another successful week this coming week.
The training highlight of my week was Thursday’s Turkey Trot. This was the first time that I’ve run a Turkey Trot, and while I’ll save the recap for another post, it was the perfect way to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday.
Other than Thanksgiving itself, the other highlight of our time here in Illinois was my ten year high school reunion. It was great to see old friends and catch up with several people. Its hard to believe that its already been ten years since I graduated! Time has certainly flown by!
As for the rest of my training week, I’m so proud of the fact that I kept up with all of my planned workouts, and even made it to the gym twice while we’ve been here in Illinois visiting my family. Thank goodness that Preston and I are members of a nationwide gym chain that has a location in my hometown!
