So we’ll start with the highs. Thanksgiving with family and friends. Good foods and lots of it, but I can’t stuff myself, so I ate until I was content and then made everyone wait for a couple hours before digging into the pie. No stuffed Kirstens here! Friday was filled with Black Friday shopping and soup/salad/breaksticks for lunch at Olive Garden. I wish I could count the 6 hours I spent on my feet shopping Friday because that would have been awesome for my exercise minutes. But alas, no cheating here. Saturday was my 20-miler, which as far as running in the mini-blizzard goes, was pretty good. (We’re still not talking about my phone incident. Well, okay, I am, but I’m not talking *happily* about it.) Sunday was a day of rest and catchup before the week and reality hit.
The lows? Stupidly spending 6 hours on my feet shopping on Friday, the day before a long run. I hydrated but probably not enough. I need to stay on top of it. My next three long runs are 18, 20, and 18. No time for being dehydrated. I’ve been trying to get my ounces of water in, but I probably only got my 60 required ounces 4 days out of 7. I didn’t excel in that realm.
But my exercise minutes were pretty good. They probably could have been better. They should have had at least another 30 minutes on there, but my legs are still worn out and I just couldn’t get them to do it. So my total minutes from Wednesday through Tuesday is 309 minutes. Not too shabby, but next week should be better. I hope to get both tworkouts done. (I had to miss last night’s due to a meeting.)
