Our First Thanksgiving at Home

Weekend Workouts and Fun


Friday Friday’s game plan consisted of a long run, long swim, and some wood work.  I ended up doing 10.5 miles in 1:32 (8:44 pace).  It was hot and humid which really slowed me down.  I am still adjusting to the warmer weather and learning what my hydration needs are, so I weighed myself before …
