Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.
I actually spent my Thanksgiving in New Mexico with J. Alabama’s family, which would mark my second ever T-day spent not in Idaho. It was hard to be away from my family, but I was sending my love by way of snow flakes. (Apparently it snowed a BUNCH since I left).
J. Alabama and I have been as active as can be during our travels. Last night after a tummy full of turkey we went for a 30 minute hike in the mountains and looked at the stars.
Then today we managed to fit in a good 30 minute HILL heavy run.
Yes, you read that right… RUN. I ran and it felt amazing. No foot pain! 🙂
The altitude in New Mexico is drastically harder to breathe in. We are currently sitting at 7500 feet and my lungs were on fire during the entire run.
I was shuffling slowly, but managed to keep up with fasty-pants. Yeah, he runs fast. But look what he is running in!
He swears by them! I’m starting to get the itch the try them out, though I’m not sure the barefoot running is for everyone. I just think they look comfortable.
Today’s run was interesting for many reasons. I was running up hill, in the drastic altitude, it was only about 40 degrees outside, and this was my first time running outside since the marathon.
It was a hard run, but it felt so good to get out there and sweat it out!
And I was super stoked to add a few extra points to my Holiday Booty Buster Challenge. Amanda is hosting this challenge, which is a great motivator for me to keep up the workouts during the holidays.
I have so much MORE randomness to share with you from my travels but it will have to wait for the next post. We are super busy catching up with family, and exploring the land of New Mexico. 🙂
What kinds of fitness activities have you participated in during the Thanksgiving Holiday?
