It’s the end of November. Time is flying. I’m still getting over the cold I had. I just have a little cough left. Thanksgiving marked the beginning of the Runner’s World Run Streak. I’m doing it again this year and am on day 4 so far. Here’s what I did last week:
Monday – 2 morning treadmill miles.Tuesday – I overslept and didn’t have time to run before work. I got first break for work and ran 3 miles on the treadmill.Wednesday – 3 morning treadmill miles.Thursday – 4 Thanksgiving miles to start the #RWRunStreak. Friday – 5 miles on the Burke Gilman Trail.
Saturday – Ran 3.7 miles in Kirkland. Sunday – Nice 6 miles on the Burke Gilman Trail.
I ended up with 26.76 miles for the week. I wasn’t able to get any cross training in though. I’m planning on changing that this week. It was nice to be able to run outside four days in a row. Also, I loved running on the Burke Gilman Trail and in Kirkland.
It was nice to go up to my brother’s house for Thanksgiving! Always great to spend time with family and enjoy yummy food!
On Friday, we tried a new place for me, Boiling Point. If you like hot pot, this is great! I thought it was good and I like the idea of being able to choose your own hot pot ingredients. There’s a good variety of soups you can get with different ingredients like a Korean one, seafood one, and Angus beef one. I chose the beef and it was delicious.
On Saturday, we went to downtown Kirkland and walked around. I ran along the waterfront while they walked around further. We also went to the Google Campus. It’s cool they have a walking/running trail, the Kirkland Corridor that goes through it. I ran a little on the trail. There was also a fun zipline the kiddos enjoyed.
We had a nice lunch at Homegrown, a sustainable sandwich shop that features organic ingredients. The chicken pesto sandwich was really good!!
That was just some of the fun weekend. I watched my 7 yr old nephew play in his first tennis tournament. He did awesome and took 2nd place! We also had a great dinner at the Facing East restaurant. It was my first time there and was pretty good. I don’t have Taiwanese food very often and it was good. I liked the pork burger they had as well as the chow mein. I forgot to take pics. Today, was mostly spent driving home and listening to the Seahawks game on the radio. Go Hawks!
How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
