Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I’m hanging out at the parent’s house for a few days.

Luckily, they have an elliptical, so I got a great workout in this morning. (since I still can’t run)  Did I mention this elliptical is in my old bedroom? Oh, yeah. They turned it into a gym. There’s a NordicFlex in there too. ha.

Breakfast this morning was seriously gourmet.
Mom made Chocolate & Cheese Danish.

holy deliciousness


Hope everyone has a great holiday filled with family, football and fantastic food!

this week

Now that Philly is over, I officially have zero races on the calendar. Weird. I don’t love it. I have lots that I want to register for but really.. I should wait until I can run before I commit to & spend money on more races.

The foot has been feeling a lot better. I think due to the fact that I haven’t run since Thursday, when that didn’t go well & I’ve been wearing sneakers a LOT.

yeah, that happened

I’ve definitely been taking it easy, trying to let it heal. Though, dropping from working out 4 days a week to doing nothing hasn’t been fun. I’m going a little stir crazy. I need to do somethingg.

Since its been feeling better and the elliptical was successful last week, I figured its a safe option for the time being. I got in 45 minutes yesterday and it felt awesome to break a sweat. Plus it was pain-free 🙂  So, I’m going to stick with the elliptical and maybe some yoga until I see the doctor next week.

Does anyone else feel like it’s not really Thanksgiving? I don’t know what was supposed to trigger Thanksgiving-season in my head, but it didn’t register. Maybe it’s because the holiday is super low-key this year? I don’t know. I’m excited for it nonetheless.

Other things I’m excited for this week:
my hair is getting darker today
heading out to the parents tomorrow
thanksgiving – obviously
mani-pedi’s with mom & sister on Friday
10 year high school reunion? not sure if excited is accurate… but I am going.
