Actual: Rest day.
Total miles = 51.85 miles. It was another great week of training. So happy to finish my last longer run strong. I’m getting excited and nervous about the race. I’ve put in the work and have been super dedicated. Hope it pays off! 🙂
As for the highlights of the week:
Nothing too exciting. My kiddos and I watched a little of the Mine Con when it was on live for all you Minecraft folks lol. I played a little Minecraft before with the kiddos but it’s been a long time and 9 year old wanted to watch it. The costume winners I saw were pretty cool. Other than it was a pretty lazy weekend but somewhat productive. It’s always fun when the kiddos help with the laundry lol.
But I’m excited for Thanksgiving since, we’re having it at our place this year. My sister just came in last night so I’m happy to see her and her family. 🙂
Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!
How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
